Early GLSP Projections – Seahawks Passing Game to Explode

On a weekly basis, I’ll use Game Level Similarity Projections to find players with surprising ranges of outcomes. Early in the week, I’ll post the results of my personal model with some quick commentary. This will be followed up with an article that compares and contrasts these findings with those of the GLSP Apps on the site. For more information relating to the model, apps, and weekly fantasy application, check out the 2017 GLSP Primer. Through nine weeks, the “average projections” calculated by the model, when compared to actual results, have an absolute difference of under five and a half points. This is very competitive when measured against subjective projections or those derived through other means. As a result, the “average projections” generated by the model serve as a pretty good proxy for a more traditional projection.

    I don't see Fournette in the rankings.

  2. He should be in there now.

  3. Thanks. That's really cool. I like the file.

  4. The GLSP results in my article are from a model I built that I'm able to have run through all of the players. The GLSPs on the site include vegas data, so those will update and change throughout the week. However, as they were built as apps centered around using filters and tweaking included games, there isn't a way built in, at least yet, to pull multiple players at once.
