What does PVO stand for?

Position vs. opponent

PVO is a fantasy football acronym that stands for position vs. opponent. It is a stat that represents the number of points a defense gives up on average to a position compared to the league average.

The PVO acronym is often seen in the ESPN fantasy football app or website by team owners viewing their roster's potential. PVO is followed by a positive or negative number that indicates how the defense fares against the position. Therefore, if your player's PVO is negative you should probably sit him and if it is positive you should probably start him.
