Loner Plays: Loner plays are particularly effective in the early season. Loner plays are distinguished as plays that are not faded in any area of ATSSTATS. The Raymond Report is not factored.
4 areas: SOS, FORECAST, PVI, STARS.
When a team is suggested by any or all of these categories, and none of the other categories fade the pick, then that team is a Loner play.
In other words, in many many instances, ATSSTATS will have one time advantaged in one area, and then their opponents advantaged in another. Loner plays describe teams where ATSSTATS has only that team advantaged.
