Backfield Fantasy Football Projections 2016

Two posts in two days. I’m on a roll and happy my site is off to a consistent start. Anyway, enough about my ego and personal aspirations. Let’s look at some backfield projections for 2016

There are 32 teams in the NFL. In a post, direct from NFL.com, they have this to say on the backfield selection topic:

“Running back is the most important position in fantasy football.”

A lot of you out there might disagree with that statement, but it’s awfuly tough to win a league championship with a mediocre or bad backfield. Just ask anyone who drafted Montee Ball or Zac Stacy last season.

What are your thoughts? I was fortunate to have neither on my draft last season.

Michael Fabiano, the author of the post continues:

Below is a list of all 32 teams, including projections (carries/touches) for their top two running backs. I’ve also included team run percentages from 2014 in the case of teams with incumbent coordinators, with data on how new coordinators have handled the run in previous stints at the pro or college level. You’ll also find a FPPT (fantasy points per touch) average from 2014, which can help you do your own fantasy point projections based on the prognosticated rush attempts and touches.

Sweet, sweet, sweet! Thank you Michael.

Alright, I have some reading and analysis to do.

This post is brought to you by our sponsor, Alpha BRAIN!

Yesterday I introduced you to truBRAIN. Alpha BRAIN sounds a little similar, right? And they both have uppercased ‘BRAIN’, not sure what that’s about.

Well the competing products are very similar. Alpha BRAIN is one of the leading mental energy boosting supplements on the market. It’s all about healthy focus and improved memory function. Similar to truBRAIN.

What give sponsorship to these two products? Well, fantasy football, at a beyond hobby level, involves a lot of work. A lot of data crunching and analysis. Hours of sitting in front of a screen wears out the brain. It can only take so much in a session. Alpha BRAIN makes it go longer, and without the crash after effects of stimulants like coffee or RedBull.
