Triple Crunch Ratings
David Dorey
August 3, 2005

This is an interesting, "purely statistical" look that makes brings together several of measurements that have been created by The Huddle over the years. It does not take into account current team dynamics and other factors that only wisdom could apply. What it does is take the amount of "good" games turned in by a player in terms of consistency (see Consistency Rankings) from 2004 and then adjusts those as if the player had a 16 game season. It also adds any games turned in by the player which were in the Top 8 allowed by the defenses that he faced over the course of the entire 2004 season (see BTA Rankings) and then adjusts those, if needed, as if the player had played for the full 16 game season. Lastly, it takes the Ease of Schedule concept one step further by reviewing each position in each team and considering how many times they will play against a defense that was in the top half of the NFL for allowing fantasy points to that position.

The "Triple Crunch" is an attempt to see how different metrics come together. If it ends up relatively predictive, we'll make it an annual review. In essence, it measures how many times a player excelled offensively (consistency) and how well they excelled against defenses (Better Than Average) and then adds in what their current year schedule offers (Ease of Schedule). It is the three measureables that matter most - producing fantasy points, excelling against the defense and the Ease of Schedule for this year.

Note - for any players that had less than 16 games played, realize the effect some had from extrapolating out their performances and devalue what it says as their picture is far less accurately depicted. Remember as well that changes in the starting line-ups and such also have a far greater impact on players.
