Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints look to repeat as Superbowl Champions

Fantasy football is full of tiny, weekly battles that will help you win the eventual war. The following projections are to help you win those battles.

QB | RB | WR | TE


These numbers are based on a number of factors, each of which is inspected before any projection is made.


The most common usage for these projections is to decide who to start and who to sit from week to week. They can also be used if you're in need of a bye-week replacement or a spot-starter in a given week.


These projections do not take into account future, so they should not be used for dynasty leagues.


The scoring system for these projections may vary from your league, so please inspect not only the "points," category but also how the points are accumulated and how the scoring may vary from your league.

The scoring system for these projections is:

  • 1 point per 25 yards passing
  • 4 points per passing touchdown
  • -2 points per passing interception
  • 1 point per 10 yards rushing
  • 6 points per rushing touchdown
  • .5 point per reception
  • 1 point per 10 yards receiving
  • 6 points per receiving touchdown
