Week 10 Fantasy Projections: Fournette Runs Wild

The RotoViz Game Level Similarity Projections help you make lineup decisions using historical matchups as your guide. Week 10 is upon us, and it’s time to make start/sit and roster management decisions. Earlier in the week, we looked at preliminary GLSP projections derived from a model I pulled together. Let’s compare and contrast these results with the GLSP projections calculated by the RotoViz apps and identify players with a surprising range of outcomes. As a reminder, GLSP projections are agnostic of a player’s situation, health, and external factors. They are compiled through the use of historical data to identify matchups between comparable players and defenses. How have running backs similar to James White fared against defenses similar to the Broncos? These are the types of questions that GLSP attempts to answer. GLSP projections rely solely on historical data.

How’d We Do Last Week?

C.J. Beathard did surprise. He scored 17 points and finished as QB14. While Marcus Mariota didn’t exactly struggle, he was held to 15 points and finished as QB17. Though my quarterback calls panned out, I was way off in selecting Marlon Mack as the week’s surprising RB. He scored just three points. Tevin Coleman, who was expected to struggle, had an okay game with 10 points and finished as RB26. Allen Hurns failed to put together a solid game. He managed six points and wasn’t the upside play that I anticipated. On the other side of the coin, I expected Julio Jones to struggle. He finished as WR13 and scored nearly 18 points. I feel a little better about the week knowing that Jared Cook, who I expected to smash, was the highest scoring tight end with 21 points. Due to extreme parity across the position, I didn’t have a surprisingly bad TE selection.
