PPO Potpourri — Week 6

UTI1736879_r620x349Welcome to the Week 6 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. We’ll also look back my Week 5 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.

    Sent it out on Wednesday: https://twitter.com/theelidman/status/387996335888420864 Gronk is a HUGE sell high. A, he simply has a bad health history the past 2.5yrs, and maybe he hasn’t played yet, because he really isn’t ready. On top of that, have you seen pictures on the guy? He looks 20-25lbs lighter than he was last year. There is no way he’s going to be able to be as physically dominant, in using his strength to create space and overmatch defenders. Remember, this guy was on the field for 87% of the offensive snaps, before he got hurt, last year. He was a tremendous blocker, which worked to his advantage because his presence on the field doesn’t give the defense and edge, on knowing the play call (like say, when NYJ employed Jason Smith as T-eligble last year…ugh…but enjoying the ‘Rex-urection’). There is no way he’ll be as an effective a blocker, and no way BB puts him in that position and in harm’s way. So, when he’s on the field, defenses will skew their personnell that way. Now, after today’s news, that he hasn’t been medically clear, his trade value has to plummet.
