PPO Potpourri — Week 4

santonio-holmesWelcome to the Week 4 edition of PPO Potpourri, where we will 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.

If you’ve been following the PPO Potpourri series, you’ll know that each week I make PPO predictions on nine players — three each from the WR, RB, and TE positions. In addition to making nine predictions for Week 4, we’ll also look back my Week 3 predictions to see how I fared.

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% of his team’s snaps. This data is for points-per-reception leagues.

    Proud to say I was dead on with Spiller. However, it would have been prudent to stop there. Why? In same comment, I suggested: TB would throttle Brady and Co and that Jay Cutler would shred Pittsburgh. The first was completely wrong (Revis must be thinking, wtf..can I not get a break..on the other hand I do have 16mm w/o state taxes) and the second was largely a whiff because Pittsburgh’s offense felt so compelled to give Chicago 14pts, the offense really didn’t need to do much (that’s passive agressive for: I would have been right if…).

    As for this week, I think a great TE ‘leap’ is Coby Fleener. Indy, yes even Indy, is going to be able to run all over Jax. I’m thinking Pep Hamilton will use the effective running game to work on play action, which is a staple in his power running scheme, and use Fleener over what should be a wide open middle of the field. Unlike you, I have the benefit of picking and choosing and based on last week’s performance, I’ll stop at 1.


    I picked up Holmes off waivers for future bye weeks. However I am wondering if I should start him this week in place of DeAndre Hopkins who is going up against the dreaded Seahawks. Thoughts?

      The Titans have an underrated defense, but I think I’d lean Holmes this week
