I’ve compiled some statistics here that I think might be useful for this week. The first chart looks at passing defenses for week 6 while the second at rushing defenses. Trying to decide what statistics work best for fantasy football has always been a difficult decision for me. I like to know how good a defense really is while at the same time I like to know how they fit into the fantasy realm. Defenses with Orcs and Cave Trolls usually are better than those with Hobbits and Humans, think Jack Lambert vs. Rudy.
I have taken three statistics and mushed them up. The first is the old constant, yards given up per game, passing or rushing. The second is fantasy points given up to QBs/RBs per game (standard scoring). The third is yards per attempt, passing or rushing.
Remember, these numbers are where they rank in each of these categories. The Giants haven’t given up 1 yard per game through the air even if it seems like they have!
So first off, here is the passing chart with matchups for week 6:
Now let’s take a look at the rushing chart with matchups for week 6:
We have some posts coming up with pass and rush defense analysis for this week that take a look at individual players, but I know some of you like to see as much raw data as you can so take a look and tell me what you think! Hope it helps.
