Hey everybody, it's sale time! Today we introduce a half-season special on Football Outsiders Premium, just $25 rather than the usual $40. That gets you Premium for three months, which means you get all our picks against the spread and the whole DVOA database through the Super Bowl, plus Bill Barnwell's fantasy answering service for your fantasy football team down the stretch. This has been our best year for picks, 72-52-6 so far (.577) and the picks historically get a little better after midseason since data is more trustworthy. Also coming soon to Premium: Top 10 most similar lists for all current NFL players.
Also on sale today: Football Outsiders Almanac 2010, the PDF version, has been discounted to just eight dollars, 33 percent off. Find out what you missed in the preseason: Why were we down on the Cowboys and high on the Chiefs, and why did we say the Ben Roethlisberger suspension wouldn't keep Pittsburgh out of the playoffs?
If you want to go further back, Football Outsiders Almanac 2009 has been further discounted to just six dollars, 50 percent off the original price.
Sorry, no discounts available on the printed versions of the books.
The New England Patriots climb to No. 1 in DVOA, but they aren't a great team, because this is The Year of No Great Teams. In fact, no No. 1 team in any week of DVOA has ever been rated lower. (Note: Table errors fixed as of Wed. morning.)
