Analysis of 2015 Top 50 Preseason RBs vs their End of Season Finish. How many made the Regular Season Top 100 RBs? Part 2

My Area at the Fantasy Greek .Com



I have the 2015 Preseason Data and had a series of questions. 


Question 1: How many of the top 50 2015 Preseason WRs made an impact by the end of the season?




Figure 1 to 4 present the Top 50 preseason RBs. I used the stat of rushing yards per game (YDS/G). An area graph follows to each table. Green Stars highlight the preseason RBs that had an impact in the regular season (Top 100 RB Regular Season)

This figure show a summary of the RB rankings in Preseason (1 to 50) vs the Regular Season (1 to 100).

Where are we now? RBs vs WRs 
2015 Pre vs Reg Seasons

Green Stars = winners of the Pre vs Reg transition. 

Analysis of the data reveals that the Preseason RBs have a higher chance of making a regular season impact vs WRs. 

** Double the chances**

I would pay sharper attention to the top RBs vs WRs!

I have not heard that in the pundit worlds! The Professor claims another scoop and all the glory its brings (  :) hehe!).
