Week 3: Fantasy Projections!

All right!  Who wants Fantasy Projections!

I usually like to wait another week or two before calculating projections, as the more data, the more accurate they are likely to be.  But I’m so excited about this season I can’t help but get a little ahead of myself.

So take the numbers with a grain of salt. As the season goes on they will fine-tune. For example Winnipeg and Hamilton only have one week of current data to use in calculations.

Projections are calculated using the player’s average FPTS of the current season, takes into account the strength/weakness of the matchup, plus adds/subtracts bonuses for other considerations such as – home or away, streaking performance (performance over the last 4 games only vs entire season), current team trends and injuries/support roster changes.
