The Best Stats for Predicting NFL Player Performance

Jon Bales (JonBales)

Jonathan Bales is the founder of RotoAcademy and author of the Fantasy Sports for Smart People book series.

This is a course on using game theory in daily fantasy sports, but as I’ve mentioned, the value in being driven to exploit public perception extends only insofar as player performances are not predictable. With perfect predictive capabilities, there would be zero incentive to utilize game theory.

Thus, I think it’s important to understand which stats are the most predictive for daily fantasy football—something that will help you select players anyway because it isn’t like we can just, you know, completely forget about trying to predict performances—as well as how predictive some of the stats are.
