The Impact of Game Script on Fantasy Production goes in depth into why it is critical to consider game script when filling out your rosters and how the role of game script differs by position.
In this course you’ll learn:
• The importance of factoring game script into your decision making
• The different types of game script and their effect on fantasy players
• How to predict game script for a given contest
• How game script impacts the fantasy output of each position
Before delving too deeply into game script, we first must establish what it is. This lesson goes through several different types of game script and presents examples of how they have affected fantasy output.
This focus on game scripts comes because they do play a large impact in the opportunity for fantasy assets to score points. This lesson looks at just how important game script is to illustrate why focusing on it is essential.
Having a knowledge of how to use game scripts is useless if you can’t predict them. This lesson shows how you can easily do so, laying the groundwork for the remaining lessons in the course.
Many will assert that quarterbacks have a fantasy advantage when their team is an underdog. This lesson investigates whether that is true and when signal callers are actually on top of their fantasy production.
If quarterbacks are highly dependent on game scripts, does that lead to wide receivers being equally dependent? This lesson looks into that to help shape wide receiver selection strategies around potential game scripts.
No position’s production is more driven by game script than that of running backs. This lesson looks at why attention to this is necessary within running back selection and how you can optimize what game script suggests will happen.
Game script affects kickers, too. If a team is unwilling to kick a field goal, the effects on the kicker’s fantasy prospects should be obvious. This lesson goes through when that is likely to occur and what you should consider when selecting your kickers.
A positive game script has a heavy influence on the key components of defensive and special teams scoring. This lesson looks at what you should be seeking as you are selecting your defense and special teams.
