Week 11 NFL Advanced Analytics Superstars
Although we're over halfway through the 2017 NFL regular season, there are still new analytics superstars emerging to tilt fantasy football owners. Players like Kenny Stills, D'Onta Foreman, and Keenan Allen were dominant for the first time Sunday, and it doesn't look the like the last we will hear from two of them. Unfortunately, Foreman was lost for the season with a torn achilles, but he certainly is a player to watch in dynsaty formats.
Each week, we'll take a look at offensive players at each position who helped put their team in the best position to win. However, we'll be going beyond just the box score by diving into the impact of each player on their team's success.
To do this, we'll utilize our signature metric, Net Expected Points (NEP), which quantifies the number of points a player adds to his team versus how he's expected to perform. When a player rushes for 5 yards on a 3rd-and-3 and keeps the drive -- and potential for scoring points -- alive, he'll add more to his team's expected point total than when a player rushes for 5 yards on a 3rd-and-9 and forces his team to punt.
So, who were Week 11's NEP superstars?
