Week 16: QB

These rankings are computer generated by the FantasyOMatic proprietary database system using our fantasyomatic algorithm™.

* If you donate this week, we add your email to our “Daily Fantasy” email list on Saturdays during the fantasy season. This repeats every week until the last email Week 15.

This system takes all previous performances by each Player and weights them by the strength of the opposing defenses for those weeks. Then the strength of the opposing defenses is weighted by the Players of the same position that they have faced so far this season. This produces various Ratings.

  •  “Matchup Rating”= Highest Rating is better start for the week
  • “Player Rating”= Overall value of the player compared to other players. Highest RATING is better player to own.
  • “Rest of Season Rating”= Player’s value for rest of season. Use as trade value, higher RATING is best.
  • “OPP Rating”= Defense Rating against Player’s position. Highest RATING is best matchup. See colors.
