    Fantasy Standouts (07/15/14)

    Over the next few weeks we will reveal a prediction involving an interesting player or team prediction leading into the 2014 NFL season.



    Prediction: Cam Newton is not a Top 5 Fantasy QB

    In each of his three seasons, Cam Newton has been one of the top five quarterbacks in the league by fantasy standards. Do not expect that to be the case for 2014. Newton will enter the season with unquestionably one of the five weakest groups of receivers in the league as well as a below average offensive line. A likely run-heavy attack that falls in line with the Panthers' defensive proficiencies makes sense. While that should not hurt Newton's abilities to post points for rushing as a dual-threat quarterback, a major slump in passing numbers is expected.

    In other fantasy quarterback news, despite only starting 12 games in our simulations, Johnny Manziel should post more fantasy points than Adrian Peterson or Calvin Johnson. That being said, it is interesting that Peterson is one of 11 players expected to average 20+ touches a game and one of 11 (a slightly different group) expected to top 100+ yards a game from scrimmage.

    Top 5 QBs (based on FP/start):
    • Peyton Manning
    • Drew Brees
    • Aaron Rodgers
    • Andrew Luck
    • Robert Griffin III
    Top Rookie: Johnny Manziel

    Top 5 RBs (based on FP/Game):
    • Adrian Peterson
    • LeSean McCoy
    • Jamaal Charles
    • Matt Forte
    • Eddie Lacy
    Top Rookie: Bishop Sankey

    Top 5 WRs (based on FP/Game):
    • Calvin Johnson
    • Demaryius Thomas
    • Jordy Nelson
    • Antonio Brown
    • Dez Bryant
    Top Rookie: Brandin Cooks

    08/09/2017 Highlight: Football season is slowly approaching and as we use our ResultsFinder tool to look back on previous seasons, we can see that ATS picks in the NFL regular season have topped 56% ATS four times in seven years, and have been profitable in all but one season on the site. NFL Playoff picks are also a stellar 50-25 (67% ATS) in our history.

    In college football, "normal" or better totals are 58% all-time and have been profitable in five of the previous seven years. Meanwhile, our strongest ATS pick each week in college football is 69-40 (63% ATS) all-time. With college football season win totals being posted this week, we can also note that last season, playable win total picks in went 28-19 (60% O/U) to turn a profit of $899 for a normal $50 player using our play value recommendations.

    MLB picks have been on a tear for upwards of a month, with our models generating $742 in total profits on ML and RL picks since the beginning of July. "Normal" or better ML and RL plays in that same stretch are a commendable 20-11 (64.5%), producing $331 in profits for an average $50 bettor.
