Why you should use accurate, accurate analysis of injury stats in fantasy football
If you want to know why you should care about your fantasy football team’s injury rates, look no further than accurate, correct, accurate, accuracy analysis.
If you’ve been following my articles about fantasy football injury data, you know I’ve been using accuracy analysis in some form or another for a long time.
While it is technically accurate, it is also subjective and subject to the vagaries of the human brain, as the words used to describe and explain these methods can vary from person to person.
There are many different ways to look at injury rates that can be useful, but the most common one is to look for correlation between injury rates and certain stats.
When looking at correlation, the key is that you can use the same correlation data to find correlations with different players or teams.
For example, if I wanted to find the correlation between a player’s rate of touchdown passes and the average touchdown passes of other players, I could look at the number of touchdowns a player has scored on the season and compare that with the average number of TD passes for the team.
Or, if you want a more complex example, I can look at a player who has scored at least 80 touchdowns in each of the last four seasons and compare those to the number that a player with similar injury rates has scored.
In addition to correlation, accurate and accurate analysis can provide a good amount of insight into how your team’s injuries compare to other teams.
Here’s a quick breakdown of how to look through your team and see if your injuries are similar to teams from around the league.
If your team has injuries that have been in the news lately, it’s likely that you’ll see them on the stats page.
Here are the injury rates for every team in the NFL: If you click on the table heading above, you’ll find a link to the team’s Injury Statistics page.
Below the table, you can see how much of each team’s player injury rates you can compare your team to.
If the team has injury rates below, you might have to look a little deeper to find that a comparison can be made.
For example, the Buffalo Bills have a lot of injuries on offense, but their offensive DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) is higher than the league average.
However, the fact that the Bills are higher than other teams does not mean that their injuries are more or less bad, but instead that the team is more injury prone.
The chart below gives you an idea of how good Buffalo’s injuries are relative to other NFL teams: The Bills have one of the lowest injury rates in the league, with just over 3.7 injuries per 100 team attempts.
However, this is not because their injuries rate is higher, but rather because they are so far down in the chart that it’s hard to make a strong comparison.
Buffalo is not the only team to suffer injuries with high injury rates.
Jacksonville Jaguars’ quarterback Blake Bortles has a very low average DVOA and injury rate, with only 0.4 injuries per team attempt.
As I mentioned earlier, I find it hard to understand why the Jacksonville Jaguars are the only NFL team to have injury rates this low.
On the other hand, the Miami Dolphins are a team that has had some injury issues in recent seasons.
Their injuries rate has been at a high rate, and I think that’s likely due to the fact they are a very injury prone team.
While their average DVPOE is at the bottom of the league in terms of total DVOA, the Dolphins have one the highest injury rates per team effort, with 0.8 injuries per game.
I have not been able to figure out why Miami’s injury rate is so high, but it could be related to the nature of their offense, as their offense runs a lot more play action passes than other NFL offenses.
Again, I have not found any correlation between the teams’ injury rates or any other stat, but I think it’s a good sign that the Dolphins injury rate will be higher than that of other teams in the future.
So, how do you evaluate injuries in your team?
If the injury rate on your team is similar to other team’s, you may want to consider using this as a proxy for whether you want your team or players to get injured.
This can be very useful, as a team may be more injury susceptible than the other team, or it could indicate a player is in poor health, or simply a bad fit in the team or the offense.
Using this data, I’ve developed a tool that uses data from my weekly Injury Analysis column to analyze your injury data.
