Tyler Eifert solidifies himself as a TE1
Welcome to the Week 2 edition of PPO Potpourri, a continuation of a series that began in 2013, where we look at the previous week’s fantasy points per opportunity (PPO) data to find the players that made the most of their opportunities.
We’re changing up the format of the article this season to focus less on recapping what happened and more on why the PPO data matters and what it can tell you.
In order to do this more effectively, we’ve expanded our criteria. Over the past two seasons, we only examined players that saw at least 50 percent of the number of snaps as the snap count leader at their respective position saw. This season, we will drop that number to 25 percent to include a greater number of players.
An opportunity is defined as Carries+Routes Run, so PPO is Fantasy Points/(Carries+Routes). In order to qualify, a player must have been in the game on at least 25 percent of the number of snaps the snap count leader at their respective position took each week. For example, if we were both wide receivers and you took 100 snaps and I took 24, I would not qualify for the list. This data is for points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.
