Week 14 NFL Advanced Analytics Superstars
The fantasy football playoffs are in full swing. If they didn't start for you last week, they're almost assuredly starting up this week, and chances are, if you had one of the superstars listed here in your starting lineup last week, you were able to advance in your playoffs.
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 14's NEP superstars?
