5 Fantasy Players Suffering Recency Bias

Hyped by on July 9, 2014 Website: gridironexperts.com

Fantasy owners are often very intellectual, analytical and logical people, but like every other person, they have their flaws. Despite a vast knowledge of the careers of NFL players, even the best owners often enter fantasy drafts with the mind set of "what have you done for me lately?"

This makes some players susceptible to "recency bias", where their reputation in fantasy is tarnished due to an off year or an injury. The difference between this type of player and a "post-hype sleeper" is that players suffering from recency bias are typically veterans with productive histories while post-hype sleepers are typically younger players who were supposed to break out in Year X, but failed to do so and then are available at a discount the following season, like Lamar Miller.
