Analyzers powered by Dana/historical data!

For those of you that are relatively new to STARTERS, we wanted to take a quick second to introduce you to Dana, the man behind the data entry process that powers the famous STARTERS Analyzers.


Dana is a co-founder of STARTERS, so he’s been around from the start. He is a diehard fantasy football fan and been in the business since roughly 2004. Dana’s projections are just a piece of what powers the STARTERS Analyzers. While we don’t want to give away all of our secrets, the Analyzers are powerful, and they factor in all kinds of historical data, strength of schedules, injury concerns, and more.

As the weeks move on, we will be addressing certain players that the Analyzers have ranked really high and really low. So, look for write-ups on that topic, they will publish weekly as we knock through that list of outliers.

The 2016 Draft Analyzer and Cheat Sheets are ready!


It’s that time! Yep, the 2016 Draft Analyzer is ready, which means you can now start creating your custom Fantasy Football Cheat Sheets for all of your leagues!

Like every year, the Draft Analyzer identifies a lot of players that are likely to outperform expectations, as the tool is driven by data trending, projections, injury concerns, and more. We will be breaking down some of the high-rankings players each week, starting with the Wide Receivers. So, start creating those 2016 Cheat Sheets, and also read our first write-up on the high-ranking players that the Analyzer is calling big seasons for:

Read: Draft Analyzer WRs That Rank High

What WRs are jumping out on the 2016 Draft Analyzer Rankings?

Allen Robinson | JAC

(ranked inside 2-3 for WRs)

Depending on your scoring settings, Allen Robinson is likely getting top 3WR love from the 2016 Draft Analyzer. Of course, don’t draft him that high, as his ADP is around 2.01 -2.03, which right around the 6th- to 7th-ranked WR in most drafts. Use ADPs to your advantage while realizing that the Draft Analyzer is seeing some overwhelmingly-positive data-driven things in Robinson heading into 2016.

More WRs Ranking High on the Draft Analyzer

Brandin Cooks – NO – He is currently ranking in inside the top 8-11 for WRs on the Draft Analyzer, depending on your entered league scoring. There is a lot to like about Cooks, and certainly use his third-round ADP to your advantage. He is roughly the 14th-16th ranked WR in most any draft, so be sure to draft him there, but understand that the Analyzer is calling for a big season out of the guy.

Jarvis Landry – MIA – He is definitely a breakout candidate, and the Analyzer is ranking him near the top 9-11 for WRs. Again, as said above, this is higher than his ADP, by about 5-7 WR spots, so use ADPs to your advantage and just know that the Analyzer is predicting big things out of Landry in 2016.

Allen Hurns – JAC – As with Landry and Cooks, Hurns is ranking in, according to the Draft Analyzer, near the top 10-13 for WRs in 2016. This is about 2-3 rounds higher than his ADP, which has him coming in around the 18th-21st ranked WR in an average draft. Expect big things, but draft accordingly and not too early.

Randall Cobb – GB – A forgotten man, Cobb should rebound in 2016, as will Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Cobb is right around the 15th-18th ranked WR in most any mock draft, but the Analyzer is calling for a top 10-12 fantasy season. Use this info to your advantage, but draft as low as you can, as the ADPs suggest you can.
