Best Ball Bargain Hunting: Defenses
Get a free NFL subscription for 3 days.
The Best Ball Bargain Hunting series looks at the ADP differences for players across popular platforms in order to identify players who may be flying under the radar on specific sites. For an explanation of the methodology, check out the running back article that kicked off the series. Some important scoring notes before getting into the analysis:
- FFPC awards 5 points for a safety while MFL10s and Fantrax only award 2.
- The scoring for points allowed creates a huge difference between FFPC and the MFL10s/Fantrax format. FFPC awards slightly higher points for a shutout,1 1 to 6 points scored,2 and 7 to 10 points scored.3 However the big difference is that beyond 10 points, FFPC scoring doesn’t give any points, whereas the other sites still give 4 points for anything between 7 and 20 points allowed, and 1 point for points allowed between 20 and 29. MFL10s and Fantrax also actually subtract 3 points if a defense gives up 30 or more points.
