We are now through eight weeks of the NFL season — basically, the halfway point. And while it has been a season unlike any other, games have, in fact, been played for eight weeks. Not always in the order expected, but we do have a really good sample size.
One of the challenges of fantasy football is that people like to play with names. But in actuality, we play with numbers. Big-name players don’t win you your week; big statistical production does.
I’ve been doing blind résumés for years upon years, and recently I have seen lots of others using them, as well.
So consider these players — look at the stats before you look at the answer — then tell me if you feel the same way about these players.
Two quarterbacks (on a per-game basis)
Player A: 21.9 PPG, 68.6% completions, 265.1 pass yards per game, 2.1 TD passes per game
Player B: 22.0 PPG, 67.3% completions, 260.1 pass yards per game, 2.3 TD passes per game
