Start and Sit

Scott Spratt

July 28th, 2019


Every Thursday during the 2019 football season, this column will identify and discuss the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends with the best and worst weekly matchups. Those matchup designations will come from EdjSports’ weekly projection efforts that capture the contextual changes players experience playing at home or on the road, indoors or outdoors, in various weather conditions, and against different defensive opponents. Those contextual adjustments create specific changes in projected statistics like yards and touchdowns that enable us to show projected changes in fantasy points in a variety of different scoring formats.

This column will put a spotlight on trends that can help you make good start and sit decisions both for a given week and in the future. And built to take advantage of Football Outsiders’ sophisticated team quality metrics, the weekly projections will elegantly navigate the strange and sometimes unsustainable results that can throw off other projection systems.
