We're back for Week 2 of the 2012 NFL season. The Packers and Bears kicked things off on Thursday, but now we get the main course. The rest of the NFL though is back today and tomorrow to get you to 2-0 in your fantasy league, or maybe get you off the schneid.
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 tight end 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.
The big difference between numberFire and SB Nation Fantasy is Vernon Davis. numberFire has him out of their top ten point scorers, which is a little bit surprising. He is not a lock to put up big numbers, but it is still surprising they do not view his matchup with Detroit all that favorably.
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.
