ESPN: Week 3 Fantasy Matchups

Matthew Stafford may not beat good teams, but in the fantasy world the Washington defense is a mouth-watering matchup. This also should be the week for Frank Gore to get back on track, but it could be a tough one for Adrian Peterson.

Why do you post articles that are only for paid subscribers of ESPN?? Seriously, are you guys shills for them or what?

Is that a joke? They get paid money for those articles, dude.

That isn't what a shill is, either.

Are these ratings based entirely on a 2 game sample so far? That seems insane to me. For example, Vick plays against KC, which was rated as the worst defense in the league in the preseason DVOA projections. But the Chiefs have played 2 good games and find themselves atop the defensive DVOA ratings now, so that means Vick is a -5? Am I missing something?

Any chance that you could revert back to the %-based ratings that were published a few years ago, rather than points-based ratings?

Agreed, not at all a fan of their new rating system though I suspect they will stick with it at least this season.
