PPO Potpourri – Week 2
Welcome to the first official edition of the 2013-2014 season PPO Potpourri series, where I’ll take a look at the previous week’s points per opportunity (PPO) data to find the players that made the most of their time on the field and name some players that, well, didn’t.
Each week throughout the season I’ll list the top 10 receivers, running backs, and tight ends in terms of PPO. I’ll also keep a running tally of how many times a specific player appears in the top 10 for PPO, and I’ll identify players that have the best chance to repeat as a top-10 finisher, fall out of the top 10, or make the leap in the next slate of games.
An opportunity is defined as Carries+Routes Run, so PPO is Fantasy Points/(Carries+Routes). This data is for points-per-reception leagues.
A.J. Green led all receivers in Week 1, checking in at an impressive 1.06 PPO. But Green wasn’t the only star to come out and play in Week 1, as seven of the top 10 receivers in terms of PPO could have been found in plenty of starting lineups.
