Stats Confirm It… Philly Is Not Very Good

The chart below shows each team’s 2014-15 defensive efficiency rank by position. For example, Atlanta shows a “5” under PG which means their efficiency ranked fifth best at the point guard (PG) position. The lower the number, the better their ranking in theory. “1” signifies the team that was the toughest against the position and “30” signifies the team ranked dead last and was therefore a matchup to consistently exploit in DFS. Note: Many teams have altered personnel since last season but this at least gives a decent gauge of how appealing team’s matchups may be early on in the season. Enjoy.
