ESPN: Week 3 Fantasy Matchups

A follow-up on last week's look at surprising early-season defenses, and applying the old FO finding that No. 1 cornerbacks don't get "matched up" on No. 1 wide receivers. Also, with Detroit's defense coming to town, it's make-or-break week for Chris Johnson's fantasy roster spot.

Dear Outsiders:

Have you guys discontinued the vs #1 WR, vs #2 WR, vs Other WR, vs RB, vs TE rankings under Team Defense then?

Thanks

a loyal FF / FO fan

I was wondering this myself. I convinced myself that they must only release it after the transition from DAVE to DVOA, but now I'm not so sure.

I'm only speaking from the past years but it seems those stats only appear after week 4. Teams playing high-powered or crappy offenses in the few few weeks would have their stats skewed.

Hmm, I thought that this year FO was going to bring back the +/- percentages rather than going with +/- fantasy points? I like percentages a lot more in this case.
