Week 14 Fantasy Projections: Old Man Gore Has Still Got It

The RotoViz Game Level Similarity Projections help you make lineup decisions using historical matchups as your guide. Week 14 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 wide receivers similar to Corey Coleman fared against defenses similar to the Packers? These are the types of questions that GLSP attempts to answer. GLSP projections rely solely on historical data.

How’d We Do Last Week?

Week 13 wasn’t a disaster, but it was far from my best. Ben Roethlisberger was my surprisingly good quarterback option. He scored 18 points as QB10 and was a starter but didn’t perform as well as I had hoped. Jared Goff scored 15 fantasy points. While he didn’t light the world on fire, he didn’t exactly struggle either. Lamar Miller had a decent outing and scored 13 points against the Titans. Unfortunately, I’d been expecting a far superior performance. Devonta Freeman, however, did prove to have a down week and was held to nine points as RB37. Robby Anderson delivered once again. As predicted, he scored nearly 20 fantasy points and was a WR1. T.Y. Hilton, on the other hand, outperformed my expectations by scoring 14 points. Tight end results were more favorable. Hunter Henry justified his selection by scoring 15 fantasy points and Austin Seferian-Jenkins did indeed struggle. He was held to under three fantasy points and recorded just two receptions.

    I need help! PPR do i start Agholor or Diggs? Coleman or Diggs? Im jammed up since coleman plays tonight but I also have Ingram and Kamara PLaying

  2. Where does Cousins fall with the streamers?

  3. Didn't have a chance to check the forums until this morning. Hopefully, you didn't play Coleman. I'd actually go with Agholor over Diggs. Especially if Ertz is unable to play. Granted, at the current point in time, it's looking like he'll be able to. Rough start with the Ingram/Kamara combo :/.

  4. It doesn't look like it will be his best week, but I'd roll with him over the streamers.
