2018 FDH Midseason NFL UQB Rankings


By Rick Morris


This is the updated midseason version of The FDH Lounge’s Ultimate Quantitative Baseline rankings for 2018.  It’s a mashup of the following rankings: our updated power rankings, a metric that is ½ of our power rankings and ½ strength of schedule, offensive yards, defensive yards, DVOA, offensive DVOA, defensive DVOA and special teams DVOA.  These rankings are counterintuitive in many ways in terms of a surface view, but they offer a comprehensive look at where every team is at midseason.
