We provide Week 2 NFL fantasy football projections for quarterbacks courtesy of numberFire.com.
We're back for Week 2 of the 2012 NFL season. The Packers and Bears kicked things off on Thursday, but now it is time for the main course. Whether you are flipping around your Sunday Ticket, or enjoying it all on the Red Zone channel, there is a full slate of games to enjoy today.
We have been providing you with rankings all week long, but as Sunday dawns, it would be helpful to have some projections as well. Our Week 2 quarterback rankings are based on our pool of knowledge and often a bit of gut instinct. To improve your chances this year, we are going to provide Sunday projections courtesy of the folks at numberFire. numberFire uses series of mathematical models, to break down the action and figure out who exactly is performing well.They use the power of predictive and regressive modeling to more accurately project future performance.
A quick run-through of numberFire projects Drew Brees and Cam Newton looking at a shootout. They drop Tom Brady from the top spot, although SB Nation still sees him in line with the best matchup. Either way, the Arizona secondary will have its hands full. The big question mark this week though, is whether or not Robert Griffin III can match his jaw-dropping performance from Week 1 as he heads into St. Louis.
numberFire claims a higher predictive rate than the major companies (ESPN, CBS, Yahoo!). However, as with anything in fantasy football, we at SB Nation Fantasy view numberFire as one more weapon in your arsenal to claim victory. The numbers can help over the long term, but there are enough variables week-to-week that multiple sources can provide great value.
