PFF's fantasy football offering just got a whole lot better. Now, all ELITE subscribers have access to PFF's new Fantasy Football Expected Points tool!
Developed by PFF's own Kevin Cole and Eric Eager, the Fantasy Football Expected Points tool is primarily used for identifying potential over/undervalued players based on the fantasy points they've scored versus what we would have expected based on how they were used and targeted in their offenses.
All ELITE subscribers can sort through the tables to review fantasy expected points (among other expected vs. actual data points) for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends. All of the data is also exportable, so ELITE subscribers can take the data and factor it into their own research, models, etc.
And the data doesn't just go back to last season. ELITE subscribers can view all of the data in the new Fantasy Football Expected Points tool for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 NFL seasons.
Here are some insights pulled from the new tool, broken down by position:
Quarterback: The leaders in fantasy points above expectation in 2019, per PFF's modeling, were Lamar Jackson (92.8), Ryan Tannehill (70.8) and Drew Brees (42.6).
Running Back: Newly released running back Leonard Fournette finished dead last at his position in fantasy points above expectation at -47.3 last season.
Wide Receiver: Rookies A.J. Brown and Mecole Hardman finished first and third, respectively, in fantasy points above expectation in 2019.
Tight End: New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook led his position in fantasy points above expectation in 2019 at 42.9.
