Week 7 – Touches Needed for Value

Another week in the books and a little more data to play with.  As always before we look at the touches needed for week 7, let’s see how the model did in week 6.

As you can see there was only one player who hit the TNF 3x and didn’t return a ROI of 3+. I was pretty happy with that result, but for all players the count is a little more even.

I will continue to gather more data and play with the process throughout the season to see how things look at the end.  In the meantime, let’s look at the main slate this week. Keep in mind the criteria. A player must average more TPG than their TNF 3x Value and their 3x ROI must be greater than the value in this next table.


I had to decrease the points for RB and WR by 1 to get someone to pop so keep that in mind this week. It’s not ideal, but I’ll take what I can get.

I like the results for QB, but that’s easy. The RB situation is most intriguing to me. If the Chargers get behind then Ekeler could get those 13+ touches. The Packers are still giving up the 4th most DraftKings points to the RB position, but Jacobs only has 8 targets on the season so that’s a risk. Please hit me up on Twitter if you have any questions, comments, or if there’s a player not shown that you’re interested in seeing. Always looking to add value for those of you sticking with us. Best of luck to everyone this weekend.
