Better than average fantasy football rankings – Tight Ends

Better Than Average (BTA) shows which players were better than their peers when the advantage of the schedule was removed.
It counts three occurrences: “Top 8” – Scored in the Top-8 fantasy points allowed by a defense “Top 4” – Scored in the Top-4 fantasy points allowed by a defense “#1” – Scored the most fantasy points allowed by a defense.
BTA – The combination of the three categories.
A Top 4 is counted twice since it is also a Top 8.

Better Than Average (BTA) shows which players were better than their peers when the advantage of the schedule was removed. This is a true 1:1 measurement because it only considers how well players did against the others who faced that defense. It counts three occurrences:

Top 8” – Scored in the Top-8 fantasy points allowed by a defense

Top 4” – Scored in the Top-4 fantasy points allowed by a defense

“#1” – Scored the most fantasy points allowed by a defense.

BTA – The combination of the three categories. Since a #1 performance also falls into a top 4 and top 8, it gets weighted three times more than a top 8. A Top 4 is counted twice since it is also a Top 8.
