2013 Week 8 Fantasy Football Matchup Tool
Alex Dunlap, Rosterwatch.com
This is a weekly tool provided by RosterWatch.
It is designed to be a decision-making tie-breaker for gauging the defensive opponents your fantasy players face.
The tool is easy to use when following the simple rules outlined below the chart.
Let’s say you own 49ers RB Frank Gore, and would like to see how he matches up against the defense he faces this week.
First look at the 49ers’ matchup for the week, and see what the number is inside the “vs. RBs” cell for the 49ers’ OPPONENT.
(Frank Gore is a RB, and you would like to know his OPPONENT’s rank vs. that position.)
As you will see, the 49ers are playing the Jaguars, who have a big, blue ‘No. 1’ in their “vs. RBs” cell. This is a great indicator for Gore owners.
Repeat the same process for other players on your roster as you are trying to decide which players to start and which to sit.
Always consult RW rankings for final decisions, and use RosterNow for decisions needing extra time and consultation.
“1″ is the best matchup, “32″ is the worst.
The rankings represented here are derived via a proprietary algorithm which takes into account not only standard “fantasy points against” metrics from 2013, but also weighted averages of separate individual player scouting grades for members of the unit that will be defending, pass rushing, or covering against the position in question.
