PPO Potpourri — Week 2

marshawn-lynchWelcome to the Week 2 edition of PPO Potpourri, a continuation of last season’s series that takes a look at the previous week’s points-per-opportunity (PPO) data to find the players that made the most of their opportunities.

Like last season, I will once again be making PPO predictions on nine players each week — three each from the WR, RB, and TE positions. We’ll also look at my previous week’s predictions to see how I fared (for this first edition, there are obviously no previous predictions to peruse, so you’ll have to wait on that one.)

I will list the top 10 players in terms of PPO from the WR, RB, and TE positions each week. I will then predict a player that will repeat on the top 10 list the upcoming week (“Repeat Performance”), a player that will not repeat (“End Zone to Friend Zone”), and a player that will make the top 10 list that wasn’t on it the week before (“Making the Leap.”)

An opportunity is defined as Carries+Routes Run, so PPO is Fantasy Points/(Carries+Routes). In order to qualify for the top 10, a player must have been in on at least 50 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 49, I would not qualify for the list. This data is for points-per-reception leagues.
