Week 1 K Results

The top kicker for the week was Giorgio Tavecchio, because that’s just how tough to predict kickers. A guy who got the start one day before the game is #1 for the week. Seriously, predicting kickers is nonsense.

Let’s see how each model did last week:

Yeah, that’s about right. The best model from last year, Model D, was the worst. The other model I liked, Model I, was terrible as well. Randomly guessing beat half of my models for the week, and the ones that were better than guessing were not much better. I’ll keep writing these and refining my models, and who knows, maybe some day I’ll die and I won’t have to do it any more.

For next week I’ll use Models F, G, H, I, or just randomly guess. They’re all the same damn thing.
