    If I was playing, I'd go against the obvious in 8 out of 10 choices.

    When do we get the answers without looking them up?

    I was going to give it about 24 hours. Close enough...
    That's part of the reason I posted this. Perception is a large part of FF IMO. Here's the answers with maybe a comment or two:

    1. Which D/ST was better last year, the Seahawks or Bills? Per ADP, the Hawks' D was getting drafted in the 8th round. Bills were most likely a waiver pickup. Yet the Bills led all defenses (again - standard scoring) with 214 points. The Hawks had 203. And with blitzkrieg Rex Ryan now in charge, the Bills may repeat!
    2. Which D/ST was better, the Panthers or Chiefs? The Panthers were generally the 2nd D/ST off the board last year in round 9. But the 12th-round Chiefs had 160 points over KC's 146. By the end of 2014, my guess is no one probably owned either.
    3. Who was better, Cutler or Stafford? Jay beat out Matt 300 to 281. Of course, here in Chitown, all we heard about was Jay's league-leading turnovers. Not much was said that he tied a career high for TD - after all he does have a top-10 RB, TE and WR to help. (And if Jay can cut his turnovers in half, the extra 20 fantasy points would put him just shy of Romo & Ryan numbers.)
    4. LeSean McCoy or Lamar Miller? Miller finished 9th in standard scoring with 171 points. (Keep in mind there was a staggering 50-point dropoff from 5th place!) Shady finished with 158 (13th).
    5. Alfred Morris or Mark Ingram? Both finished with similar yardage, TD's and receiving yards, but Morris edged out Ingram by 5 points. (Morris beat our McCoy too BTW.)
    6. Julian Edelman or Torrey Smith? Edelman had almost twice as many receptions and 200 more yards than Smith, but Torrey had 11 TD to Jule's 4. Smith won 137 to 121.
    7. T.Y. Hilton or Golden Tate? Very similar yardage numbers, but the TD's were the difference. Hilton had 172 to Tate's 151.
    8. Jimmy Graham or Antonio Gates? Graham was a 1st round pick. Gates was a 12th (per ADP). But the old man had 148 points compared to Graham's 137.
    9. Travis Kelce or Jason Witten? The rookie Kelce was not on anyone's radar while Witten was a 6th round pick. But Kelce bested Witten 108 to 93.
    10. Dan Carpenter or Steven Hauschka? Carpenter = 148, Hauschka = 141.

    Only missed 2 out of the 10, and they were both of the RBs.
    Ingram injury last year made it a little tough to recollect, since he put up some nasty RB1 numbers in multiple weeks.

    Just made a new spreadsheet of 3-year averages.
    Was kind of surprised by some of the statistical averages.

    So here's a few 2016 trivia questions:

    A) Over the last 3 seasons, which of these 3 QB averaged more yards per game (includes both passing and rushing).
    1. Cam Newton
    2. Ryan Tannehill
    3. Russell Wilson

    B) Over the last 3 seasons, which of these 3 RB averaged more yards per game (both rushing plus receiving)?
    1. Eddie Lacy
    2. Doug Martin
    3. Giovani Bernard

    C) Over the last 3 season, which of these 3 WR averaged more yards per game (rush and receiving)?
    1. Dez Bryant
    2. T.Y Hilton
    3. Julian Edelman

    surprised everyone thinks it is Benard over Martin...

    When measuring PPG, injuries was the first thing I thought of... I just picked which players I remember missing the most games...

    QB was different as I don't think any of them missed any games, I just went with the most consistent...

    Yards per game, not points.
