There is currently a little under 500 players projected with a 1-2+ paragraphs
on each player, including their projected traditional and PPR points per game
projections in our system. We have 450+ QB-RB-WR-TE and all 32 team-defenses
scouted and projected. There are no Kicker projections in Version 1.0.
The Kicker commentaries and projections will be added in the next update (on or
Just to be clear -- We do not have any IDP analysis. That is a hope/project for
You can purchase just the Cheat Sheets alone, but if your purchase the Draft
Guide you do NOT need to also order Cheat Sheets separately/additionally
-- they are included in your one price with the Draft Guide.
This is Version 1.0 -- When you purchase the Draft Guide and/or Cheat Sheets, we
will update this draft guide constantly with changing news, injuries, trades.
Your one-time purchase entitles you to all updates up to opening day. We post
alerts on our Blog area when any Draft Guide/Cheat Sheet update is completed. We
also denote which players changed with a "+" or "--" notation.
We have another 50+ players who will be added to the Draft Guide in the next 1-2
weeks. We will likely have 600+ players scouted, projected, and with commentary
by the end of July. Most Fantasy Football Drafts involve 120-200 players, so the
other 400+ extra players we scouted/report on may seem like overkill, but we
also intend for this to be a guide to be referenced during the entire 2012 (or
2013+) season -- when lesser-known player names start to heat up, and injuries
We do not have one overall ranking comparing all players in an order/ranking.
Our main goal is to evaluate and compare each position, in and of itself, and
you will know better your league owner's tendencies/history on what you should
take when. Our statistically ranked overall top 10-20-100-200 advice would
change with a 10 or 12 or more team league, various scoring systems, yardage
bonuses, flex or no flex, what number in the draft we were drafting at, etc. In
general, we statistically believe in an elite (top 3-4 QB or top 2 TE) QB-TE or
TE-QB in the first two picks in every situation and after that we start looking
at best available and staying fluid from there.
Note we do have some players in our system with fractional games played in 2011,
so the per game stats we provide can look different than what you're used to. We
also look at Weeks 1-16 only. We do not consider Week-17 in 2011 data or looking
forward to our 2012 Fantasy scoring projections. We hold to our firm belief that
these Week-17 games are not good indicators of actual abilities/results.
We think we have caught all the major typos, or bugs...but if anyone sees an odd
ball/major gaffe item, please feel free to email in so we can fix.
Thank you for all your support the past few years, and in 2012 as well. Good
Luck in the upcoming Fantasy Football Drafts. The draft is half the battle.
We're going to be here all preseason and post-season to try to give you any edge
we can...or die trying. We really appreciate all the support! Thanks

Our "Moneyball-Inspired" Fantasy
Football stats and analysis will provide you with a
unique perspective to draft and manage your Fantasy
"Ever-Refreshing data" for the entire preseason.
It's not like a magazine written 30-60 days ago, with stale/out-of-date
information by the time you get it. We update the Draft Guide's info as
player situations change, via trade, release, injury, training camp scouting
we conduct, or info we hear from training camps sources, etc. We then update
a particular player and/or all the players affected by the change. We'll
post a list of what players have been updated for your convenience on our
website, as changes are made.
Download. Free Updates. Your download link will work right
up to the NFL season start. So you can come in and download our most
current version of the draft guide and cheat sheet at any time, as many
times as you want.
Football Metrics is a concept designed around the "Moneyball"
philosophy; the idea of studying and developing Metrics to uncover hidden
value and opportunity in putting a Fantasy Football team together. If you
want to hear that all the top players from last year, are magically the best
for this year too...you won't enjoy our analysis.
We are an alternative to the
media-hype, highlights, and "group think" of
Fantasy Football. We are businessman and
statisticians (and passionate Fantasy/Football
fans) coming together to find a
mathematical/statistical edge within Fantasy
Football. No silly testimonials on how everyone
here, and every client we have, has won every
league they've even been in. We are looking for
an alternative edge that is more often right
than wrong, and which pushes the odds in our
Information on all of these
issues, and much more, are included in our Draft
Guide "The Big Board". Over 400+ Fantasy
Football player profiles and analysis, with
individual player schedules, ranked by projected

previous year stats by player, and more.
and statistics; in depth charts, player scouting
reports, and draft cheat sheets for Fantasy
We are a unique group focused on combining a new
wave of original statistical analysis and trending,
combined with game scouting merged with today's
headlines. Our focus is on pre-season player news, a
Fantasy Football Draft Guide and Cheat Sheet, and
weekly projections and player rankings; all flavored
with our "moneyball-inspired metrics, and fresh
(never canned) commentary.
We are business owners and managers, amateur
statisticians, and football junkies all rolled into
one. Researching and managing this game like a
business, and having a blast doing it.
We are on a quest to look for the statistical
and/or "inside" edge on everything Fantasy Football.
We are tired of the same exact "parroted"
analysis over & over on every website and in every
magazine....we strive for true independent analysis,
and all original (often controversial) content.
We are NOT going to guarantee success at every
turn, with silly testimonials on how people that
have used our research and have won their league for
a hundred years in a row (although we do quite
well). We are trying to bring a statistical edge to
improve OUR OWN pre-season drafts, and in-season
management (sit/start, drop/add, trade for/away). If
you enjoy and/or can benefit from our research (and
we think you will), even better.
Every point, every edge matters in life, in
business, and in Fantasy Football. We are constantly
searching for that statistical edge....
Our New College Football Scouting Website
After many final tweaks, we have opened our
new college football prospect scouting
website to the public!
Football Metrics.com is a simple website that will store all of our 2012
NFL Draft statistical ratings for the prospects in this draft class, as well as
detailed long-form report-outs on all the prospects that our computer formulas
are keying on in its analysis and modeling. Our new site is a subscription-based
access, and all of our 2012 NFL Draft scouting reports/information will be "in
storage" on the site for all of 2012...for your research and review at any time
We rank players based on a computer formula/algorithm for
each position based on all the historical data that we have, and formulas that
we have devised. We take a Moneyball approach to the scouting process...scouting
players heavily by data -- physical measureables, college output, historical
modeling. Instead of a long-winded explanation on what our reports are all
about, the best example we can give of the work that we do is...
