What is Fantasy Football Nerd?
Why FFN? Simply put: Collective Intelligence. The Fantasy Football Nerd takes the “wisdom of the crowd” to a new level by aggregating the fantasy football rankings of the best fantasy football sites on the planet, weight them based upon each site’s accuracy, and produce the industry’s most accurate consensus rankings.
NerdRank is the technology created to bring the wisdom of the crowd into a manageable environment. It’s what makes FFN so unique. Anyone can aggregate fantasy football rankings and projections and then average them out. NerdRank is a results-oriented process for normalizing the rankings and projections. Weighting the rankings based upon past accuracy can give you an edge that your competition doesn’t have.
Our Sit/Start rankings provide a cumulative rank from expert projections around the Net. If you’ve got a tough sit/start decision, check the Nerd’s fantasy football rankings to see what the experts think.
The Nerd’s innovative draft rankings system provides a consensus ranking for overall draft rankings as well as positional rankings. In theory, having 38 heads is better than 1. It’s useful for seeing what the experts from the major fantasy football websites are thinking and projecting. FantasyFootballNerd.com brings that collective intelligence into one location.
The Nerd compares rankings from sites such as NFL.com, ESPN.com, CBS Sportsline, FOX Sports, Fantasy Football Calculator, Bruno Boys, Fantasy Football Toolbox, Fantasy Sharks, and more to produce the Internet’s best fantasy football rankings system.
Ronald Jones RB, Buccaneers, at Jaguars (FD $6,200/DK $5,100)
The Jags have given up nearly 200 yards rushing per game over the past three weeks and an average of more than 37 fantasy points to opposing RBs. Jones has dominated the workload and has TDs in three of the past four games.
Greg Ward WR, Eagles, at Dolphins (FD $5,300/DK $4,100)
The rookie caught six of seven targets last week. Sunday, he faces a sorry Dolphins secondary on a team with a beat-up WR corps.
Leonard Fournette RB, Jaguars, vs. Buccaneers (FD $7,600/DK $7,500)
As bad as the Bucs’ passing defense is, that is how good the run defense is, ranking third-stingiest in the league to opposing fantasy RBs. They have given up just one rushing TD to an RB in the past five games.
Tevin Coleman RB, 49ers, at Ravens (FD $6,100/DK $5,900)
Baltimore scores so much, many opponents are forced to abandon the run game. The Ravens shut down Todd Gurley last week, and their ranking as seventh stingiest would be even better were not for a Week 4 outlier when the Browns ran all over them.
Keenan Allen WR, Chargers, at Broncos (FD $6,800/DK $6,500)
Managed just 18 yards on four catches in the team’s previous encounter. And let’s face it, Philip Rivers just isn’t the same effective QB he used to be.
Mark Andrews TE, Ravens, vs. 49ers (FD $6,500/DK $5,700)
San Francisco has been the most cruel in the league to opposing tight ends, allowing a double-digit fantasy outing by a tight end just once all season.
