    Fantasy Standouts (07/15/14)

    By Paul Bessire
    Over the next few weeks we will reveal a prediction involving an interesting player or team prediction leading into the 2014 NFL season.



    Prediction: Cam Newton is not a Top 5 Fantasy QB

    In each of his three seasons, Cam Newton has been one of the top five quarterbacks in the league by fantasy standards. Do not expect that to be the case for 2014. Newton will enter the season with unquestionably one of the five weakest groups of receivers in the league as well as a below average offensive line. A likely run-heavy attack that falls in line with the Panthers' defensive proficiencies makes sense. While that should not hurt Newton's abilities to post points for rushing as a dual-threat quarterback, a major slump in passing numbers is expected.

    In other fantasy quarterback news, despite only starting 12 games in our simulations, Johnny Manziel should post more fantasy points than Adrian Peterson or Calvin Johnson. That being said, it is interesting that Peterson is one of 11 players expected to average 20+ touches a game and one of 11 (a slightly different group) expected to top 100+ yards a game from scrimmage.

    Top 5 QBs (based on FP/start):
    • Peyton Manning
    • Drew Brees
    • Aaron Rodgers
    • Andrew Luck
    • Robert Griffin III
    Top Rookie: Johnny Manziel

    Top 5 RBs (based on FP/Game):
    • Adrian Peterson
    • LeSean McCoy
    • Jamaal Charles
    • Matt Forte
    • Eddie Lacy
    Top Rookie: Bishop Sankey

    Top 5 WRs (based on FP/Game):
    • Calvin Johnson
    • Demaryius Thomas
    • Jordy Nelson
    • Antonio Brown
    • Dez Bryant
    Top Rookie: Brandin Cooks

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
