- Ken Daube, Fantasy Football
I do not have a grudge against the Chargers. However, by the end of this paragraph and based on last week's column, I can understand why the classy residents of San Diego might just feel that way. I'll just come right out and say it: Philip Rivers' hot start is a crazy fluke. Mathematically, his production to date is nothing more than a statistical anomaly. He has benefited significantly from improbable performances from his receiving corps and anyone expecting such incredible events to continue is simply oblivious to reality.
While I am at it, let me also break the hearts of those who have been encouraged by the solid start of J.T. O'Sullivan or the not-as-bad-as-expected performance of JaMarcus Russell. Their performances also reek of mathematical improbability.
Ken Daube looks at the rate of yards after catch per reception, and how that helps pick out the best fantasy quarterbacks.
