I got inspired by the fact that David Johnson got the award for NFC offensive player of the month. No doubt that he is a Fantastic player both in real life and in fantasy, but I thought I should compare him to another great fantasy running back, Ezekiel Elliott. When I started working with these two players numbers I found out, as I guess many before me that David Johnson’s stats from last year will have an effect on how we look at his career numbers.
Elliott’s start has been fantastic and I could not be more happy both as a Elliott owner in 3 leagues and as a Cowboys fan. But looking below we can see that there are some areas where you most definitely would have drafted Johnson over Elliott if the draft was today and vice a versa, and as I said above, keep in mind that Elliott’s sample is much smaller and Johnson’s will be effected by last year. Let’s dig in!
If you would like your team’s probability analysis or if you have two players that you have projections for and would like to know the risk, tweet me at @qalled and I would be more than happy to provide you with an edge over your co-workers!
