Week 12 Fantasy Projections: Rudolph to Feast on Lions

The RotoViz Game Level Similarity Projections help you make lineup decisions using historical matchups as your guide. Week 12 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 quarterbacks similar to Case Keenum fared against defenses similar to the Lions? These are the types of questions that GLSP attempts to answer. GLSP projections rely solely on historical data.

How’d We Do Last Week?

Eli Manning was a major disappointment and was held to under nine points. Dak Prescott, as anticipated, struggled mightily against the Eagles and scored negative points in many scoring systems. The GLSP recognized Samaje Perine’s potential against the Saints, and the rookie delivered with a near 20-point outing. Marshawn Lynch managed to outscore his weak floor of two points but finished as RB35. Wide receiver results were mixed. Jeremy Maclin was unable to surprise; he was held to seven points. Julio Jones was expected to have an un-Julio like game. He wasn’t awful but was held to just 12 points. Vernon Davis panned out and was a starting tight end. However, Jimmy Graham in no way struggled. He scored 21 points and was the week’s best TE.
