Some people fail at meeting their goals because they neglect the tools they have at their disposal. For instance, try reading a book without turning the light on. You are going to fail when the room gets dark. Catch my drift? Metrics and key performance indicators are essential tools when forecasting future fantasy production of players. If certain data points are ignored then there’s a risk that a future fantasy asset could be over looked causing the player to fall into the hands of the opposition.
Market share data analysis is a very important measurement of a player’s production. It is the percentage of production that a player owns within their offense. For example, Player X produced 30.12 percent of his team’s offense. A wide receiver’s market share data is configured of the percentage that they own with in the passing offense. The reason being, is typically wide receivers are not apart of the run game.
There are different types of offensive systems in college football that affects player’s production. A player’s statistics could be inflated due to sheer offensive volume. Market share data curtails the effects of the player’s offensive scheme by displaying the importance of a player’s role within the offense from a production standpoint.
Players who are productive but have missed games due to injury or suspensions typically have a lower share of the offense due to the games missed. Keep that in mind when sorting through the data. Be aware of the small school players because their production is obtained by playing against lesser competition.
This is a good tool when used in conjunction with watching tape and analyzing athletic metrics. It makes it easy to quickly examine the player’s production while breaking down all aspects of the player’s profile.
The tables below are ranking the wide receivers by class. This gives us an educated guess of the players age combined with their most recent production because birth dates for a lot of college prospects are almost impossible to obtain, especially for freshmen and sophomores.
