Fantasy football can be a complicated game.
You want volume. You want efficiency. You want upside. You want floor. You want a balanced roster.
It's a lot to juggle all at once. But at the end of the day, we really want just one thing.
We want them tuddies.
Touchdowns are the easiest path to upside in fantasy football, regardless of position. You can have all the rushing yards you want, but if your players aren't finding the end zone, good luck posting a number that'll top the squad of Steve in accounting.
While there are also plenty of factors that go into touchdown scoring, the easiest path to finding them is by targeting good teams. Good teams score more points, and that gives your players more chances to hit paydirt. If you have too many players who are on poor teams, you're cutting into your overall upside and putting yourself in a hole.
Thankfully, each year, betting markets will give us a glimpse at which teams are projected to be good in the upcoming season. And we can learn a lot from this info.
