This is the debut of THE DYNAMO RANKINGS, a metric of overall points and efficiency combination. My own offensive efficiency is at the core of the formula, which is Dynamo = inertia + (points for)/(7-inertia)
I know Dynamo rankings mean little at this point, but I am posting them now for future reference and to get practice in calculating and posting them. Now to cut down on data spikes, I created 8 groups of 4 teams each. Each group gets a letter grade and a letter grade is given "credits" like B+ has 7 credits. I use the term credits to avoid getting mixed up with points. And for other technical handicappers out there , rank is more important than value. For example, what does it mean when a running back gets 78 yards ? I would rather know the rank of 78 yards for running backs.
Grade "A" Credits 8
Bucs, Jets, Ravens, Redskins
Grade "B+" Credits 7
Bengals, Saints, Chiefs, Dolphins
Grade "B-" Credits 6
Rams, Broncos, Pats, Panthers
Grade "C+" Credits 5
Chargers, Viks, Bears, Colts
Grade "C-" Credits 4
Steelers, Texans, Packers, Jags
Grade "D+" Credits 3
Titans, Eagles, Browns, Seahawks
Grade "D-" Credits 2
Raiders, Niners, Giants, Cowboys
Grade "F" Credits 1
Lions, Falcons, Cards, Bills
Congratulations Buffalo Bills
One way to use these rankings is fade or avoid teams with "D" and "F" grades. Or perhaps you want to adjust your bet size if a team has a "C-" grade.
Oh and Seahawks you are on the FADE Watch ... For a supposed good team, Seattle's inertia numbers are poor. Their inertia numbers were not good last season either. At the moment, it is just a yellow alert and something to keep your betting eye on.
