Fantasy Tidbits - Week 1

Hello everyone and welcome to Smith’s Fantasy Tidbits for the upcoming season.  As in years past, this feature will take a look inside the statistics for the upcoming games to look for trends and past performances from the individual players.  We look back over the past five years (to the 2000 season) to find interesting tidbits to help you make your fantasy and football pool decisions.

Fantasy points are based on the following

  • 1 pt every 20 passing yards
  • 1 pt every 10 rushing yards
  • 1 pt every 10 receiving yards
  • 4 pts per passing touchdown
  • 6 pts per rushing touchdown
  • -1 pt per interception

    Let’s get to it.
