A.J. Derby 2017 Fantasy Analysis
Career Synopsis:
A.J. Derby was below his fantasy projection last year. His best fantasy TE ranking was #67 in 2016.
Career Experience Outlook:
Derby is entering his 2nd year in the NFL. Over the past 15 years, on average, TEs in their 2nd year have seen an increase in fantasy pts per game of 0.61 from their 1st year.
Position Outlook:
Last year Derby averaged 1.34 fantasy pts per game less than the league TE average. The average fantasy pts per game by TEs in 2016 was 2.94.
Depth Chart Change:
No Change in Depth Chart.
Player Turnover:
Based on prior performance, a change in roster skilled positions projects a lower fantasy average of (0.12) pts per game for Derby.
Schedule Difficulty:
Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Derby plays this year (113 - 78 - 2 0.592%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (111 - 96 - 1 0.536%), and last season's teams gave up more points (4,813) compared to this season's teams (4,162) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Derby surprisingly had a higher fantasy avg (2.25 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (0.63 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could be an indication of a higher fantasy average.
Defenses:
From a defensive standpoint, Derby faced defenses that were stronger last year (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 18.77 - 3 Top 10 Defenses and 1 Top 5 Defense) compared to the upcoming season (Avg. Total Yards Against Ranking: 19.08 - 2 Top 10 Defenses and 0 Top 5 Defenses), but last season's teams gave up more passing yards (249 yds/game including 2 Top 10 Defenses and 2 Top 5 Defenses) compared to this season's teams (247 yds/game including 1 Top 10 Defense and 2 Top 5 Defenses).
