5 teams that should put up more fantasy production in 2017
A week ago in this space, I looked at the five teams who had the biggest jump in year-over-year fantasy production from 2015 to 2016, looking for which offenses might be less productive in 2017. The obvious next step, then, is the corollary — which teams fell off by the most last year? Which teams might have more to offer in 2017 than in 2016?
(As a reminder, we’re only looking at offensive fantasy production, so all references to teamwide fantasy points mean only quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end — no kicker or defense.)
I’ll rerun the chart from last week — teams since 2006, sorted by their percent change in team fantasy scoring from Year 1 to Year 2, along with the change they went on to make in Year 3.
