As we did last season, we will utilize our NFL simulation technology, statistical research capabilities, up-to-the minute roster and depth chart information and our Beyond the Boxscore feature to preview the upcoming NFL season. Beginning Tuesday, June 10th, BtB will preview a 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 2008, to go along with comprehensive individual player statistics and fantasy rankings, we will be showing projected scores and winning percentages from the simulations of all 267 regular and post season games. Also, we will be running our first installment of the NFL Power Rankings after the playoff results article is posted. Rosters and depth charts are up-to-date and as accurate as possible as of June 8, 2008. A schedule of upcoming NFL preview content is below. Previews should be posted by noon ET. Check Beyond the Boxscore each day for updates.
