Market Share Report: Le'Veon Bell's Big Day Shall Come
We go through these market shares each week to tell you which situations you want to avoid and which merit investment. Week 9 made that look a bit silly.
An investigation of last week's work distribution would have told you to steer clear of Mark Ingram and fully embrace Devontae Booker. Their situations were trending in opposite directions, and there were reasons to think those fluctuations were sustainable.
Then Ingram went out and out-scored Booker by 26.6 half-PPR points on Sunday. Welp city, brudduhs and sistahs.
Still, once we dig a bit deeper into those Week 9 statlines, you'll be able to see exactly why we do this. Even if the fantasy output was dope for Ingram and a buzzkill for Booker, their relative workloads tell a much different story, and we clearly can't base our outlook for them off of their fantasy production in that one game.
You can check all of this out for yourself if you're a premium subscriber using numberFire's new DFS tools. Here, you can view fluctuations in carry market shares, target market shares, and red-zone market shares over the past one, three, or five games. This will allow you to easily see whose role is changing and who's getting work where it counts.
Let's take a peek at what we learned in Week 9 and why we may want to be cautious about reacting strictly to fantasy production.
