Every year, fantasy players pore over the schedule, trying to find a player with an easy matchup when their starter has a bye week. The only problem? Defenses don't stay consistent from year to year. Since we've managed to pinpoint variables which improve our projections for team defense with DVOA, why not try projecting rushing and passing points allowed in fantasy football?

Back in 2005, Mike Tanier wrote the original story about the Fantasy Football Hall of Fame (FFHoF) and its visionary creator Virgil Parks. Since then, ESPN appropriated Parks' idea without his consent. As part of our continuing effort to stick up for the common man, we dispatched Mike Tanier to interview Parks.

We go back into the 2006 game charting data to take a closer look at incomplete passes. Learn who had the most underthrown or overthrown passes, the surprising difference between Byron Leftwich and David Garrard, and why a pass defensed isn't necessarily a higher quality of incomplete.

This year's Pro Football Prospectus contains a lot more game charting data when compared to last year's book, but we still couldn't fit it all in. We'll be looking at some of that data on Football Outsiders over the next month. Today: Whose completion percentage suffered due to dropped passes, and whose completion percentage was helped by a healthy dose of short routes?

The dark underbelly of the divisional system in sports is that weak-sister teams like the 2006 Seahawks automatically get into the playoffs because they win even weaker divisions. Was last year's NFC West the weakest division in recent history? Doug Farrar dives into a dozen years of DVOA to find out.
