Ready for some football? WhatIfSports.com Previews the 2009 NFL Season

June 8th, 2009

As we did last season, WhatIfSports.com will utilize our NFL simulation technology, statistical research capabilities, up-to-the minute roster and depth chart information to preview the upcoming NFL season.

Beginning Tuesday, June 9th, WhatIfSports.com will preview a different division each day for eight days, before presenting final standings, stats, fantasy and statistical leaders, award winners and playoff game boxscores.

This analysis is just part of a broader endeavor in which WhatIfSports.com provides weekly fantasy projections for FOXSports.com's Fantasy Football. For this analysis, each regular season game is simulated 1,000 times and the average of those games becomes the projected result for the week. This allows us to account for every player and stat as well as assign probabilities of winning for each team for every game. For more on our analysis, see our 2008 NFL content.

Rosters and depth charts are up-to-date and as accurate as possible as of June 9, 2009. A schedule of upcoming NFL preview content is below. Previews should be posted by noon ET. Check WhatIfSports.com each day for updates.

Paul Bessire is the Product Manager of Content and Quantitative Analysis for WhatIfSports.com, a division of FOX Sports Interactive. With any comments, questions or topic suggestions, Paul can be reached at BtB@whatifsports.com. Thanks!
