It’s time! Four games is but a blip on the radar in baseball, but most NFL teams are now a full fourth of the way through their schedule.

Trends are now turning into tendencies, and smart Fantasy Football owners use these tendencies to their advantage.

Daily Fantasy Football is all about identifying low priced players who are going to break out, and conversely, which of the higher priced stars are going to put up duds.

There may be no better way to do this than looking at the Fantasy Points Allowed by Position (FPAbP) for each NFL defense.

While you may still want to give the 2014 Fantasy Points Allowed by Position a quick peek, the FPAbP numbers after Week 4 are gaining importance with every quarter played.

What is Fantasy Points Allowed by Position?

New to Fantasy Points Allowed by Position (FPAbP)? It’s really a very simple concept. Each NFL defense has different strengths and weaknesses. FPAbP simply measures those weaknesses by looking at the number of Fantasy points they allow to each of the skill positions.

FPAbP takes the statistics surrounding Pass Defense and Run Defense to a more focused level and applies it in a way that directly applies to Fantasy. At the quarter point of the NFL season, I’m not sure there’s a better way to identify quality matchups and maximize the value you get in your DFS lineups.

Below is the Fantasy Points Allowed by Position data for Week 4, customized for five different DFS sites. Use it to find low priced values and the studs with the best matchups each week.

Again, four weeks is where we really need to start leaning on this year’s numbers, but a look at Fantasy Points Allowed by Position for the 2014 season can’t hurt. To be honest, there aren’t too many teams that have successfully overhauled their defenses.
