Projection Research

Player projections provide a detailed account on what to expect from this player based on the fantasy week or day.  These are calculated based off our algorithm and they are updated several times throughout the day.  This research area should look similar to what you see below...

Use these projections to help set your lineups, pick up free agents, or scout your competition.  

You can customize player projections in the following ways:

  1. Select specific categories that your league uses (NBA, NHL, MLB).
  2. Specify if your league is H2H Points, Category H2H, or Rotisserie.
  3. Choose between daily or weekly projections.

You can sort projections based on various positions and/or by My Team, Entire League, or Free Agents. Players highlighted in yellow are already owned by you and are always shown to get a sense as to how your player's fit in against all other players.

Trust

Each player is assigned a trust rating of 1/100, with 100 being completely trustworthy.  The trustworthyness of a player provides an indication on the chances this player will meet or exceed his fantasy expectations.  Use the trust rating to help set your lineup, perform trades, or help deal with the waiver wire.

Would you rather start a player you can't trust that has big week potential, or a safer player who has a low ceiling but puts up consistent numbers?  Ideally you would like to see all players in your starting lineup to have a 70%+ chance of meeting their expectations.  Players with low trust, especially in fantasy football, means that you may be taking a huge risk.  

A player may show up as N/A if there has not been enough games played or it's early in the season.  Sooner or later, all players will be assigned a rating when they meet the games played quota.

Player Schedule

Each player listed has a detailed schedule based on their matchups for the current week or day.  These can be customized based on your type of fantasy league and the categories that you use.  (Click on the settings link on the top right to modify these inside the fantasy assistant).

The shaded categories of Red and Green indicate how much better or worse this player is likely to perform based on his opponent.  A dark Green or dark Red indicates that his performance could be impacted by as much as 30%.  We factor this data into our projections, but also show you to provide a quick glance that your weekly/daily matchups.
