Dynasty Fantasy Football Target Share: Do Routes Predict Targets?

We take a deep dive into to usefulness of route and target data in predicting fantasy success.

Editor's note: In light of the on-field incident involving Bills safety Damar Hamlin, we want to be sensitive to this situation. There is no easy way to deal with trauma, so in order to account for all preferences, we going to continue our normal content schedule. Our thoughts are with Hamlin and his family as we all hope for his swift and full recovery. If you would like to contribute to Hamlin's charity, we strongly encourage donations be made here.

There is one week left before we look to do a year-in-review conclusion to this series. I went back and forth on what to write about this week because of where we are in the season.

Suggesting a start-sit decision is moot, and future production is a year away.

Ultimately, I’ve decided on doing some background work on the connection between a player’s stats and what we can and can’t know about their future target share in the following season (or year N+1 if you’re a nerd).

I think this will set us up better for drawing more conclusions about what 2023 may bring.

As always, here’s your weekly reminder that I’m collecting the weekly data (again,) and you can find it here.

Let’s get to it.
