Last week, I introduced “CoV” to measure how much variance players are experiencing in their opportunity from week to week. While preparing for this article, I realized that it didn’t provide enough context.
Is 0.26 for Odell Beckham Jr good? It sounds low, it’s almost 0 (perfect consistency). So this week, I’m including CoV position ranks as well. This rank tells you how much their opportunity in target share and WOPR is changing week to week compared to players at the same position.
I limited the rank sample to players how have played in three for more games and have caught three targets per game so far.
Target share shows us the opportunity a player is getting compared to his teammates, whereas WOPR tells us more about how the value of their target share compares to the rest of the league. That’s why I’ve been sorting these tables by WOPR.
