This week we're again looking at red zone opportunities, but we're slicing the data a little differently than we have previously. To be successful in DFS, you have to be willing to adapt and be quick to change your perceptions of players. To help you identify which perceptions need to be changed, we're taking a look at the players with the biggest changes in red zone opportunities in the first 6 weeks of the season versus the second 6 weeks.
For each situation, the reasoning behind the swings are often different. In many cases, an injury can cause big swings for both the injured player and his replacement and in other cases like Le'Veon Bell, other external factors like a suspension can significantly impact the touches as well. Keep in mind that this is only a view of the players on extreme side one way or the other. There are many players who have seen consistenly high red zone opportuntities throughout the year that would be excluded from these tables.
Like anything, this is merely designed to be a tool to use along with all your other analysis. It is, however, a really powerful tool and one we focus a lot of attention on when we're making play recommendations each week. Good luck and enjoy!
