Ranking The Top 83 Tight Ends From a Mathematical Perspective

After letting the numbers decide who the top 130 receivers in the NFL are, it’s time to do the same at the tight end position. For the most part, tight ends provide most of their value as a receiver, so the evaluation process is somewhat similar to that of wide receiver. Yet, tight ends have to at least be capable run blockers to be three-down … Continue reading Ranking The Top 83 Tight Ends From a Mathematical Perspective

Ranking The Top 130 Wide Receivers From a Mathematical Perspective

Recently, we let the numbers decide who the top running backs in the NFL were. Today, we’ll shift to a much more important skill position. Wide receiver is the most important non-quarterback position in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus’ Wins Above Replacement (WAR) metric, so if there’s any position that can move the needle, it’s this one. The difference between an elite receiver and an … Continue reading Ranking The Top 130 Wide Receivers From a Mathematical Perspective

Ranking The Top 68 Running Backs From A Mathematical Perspective

After letting the numbers decide who the top 48 quarterbacks in the NFL were, let’s take a similar approach with running backs- we’ll look at the top 68 running backs in the NFL. We’ve already harped in the past that this is easily the least important position, but it’s still fun to rank them by taking them outside of their scheme and surrounding cast. To … Continue reading Ranking The Top 68 Running Backs From A Mathematical Perspective

NFL Draft Grades/Analysis: NFC

Even though it couldn’t take place in Las Vegas and had to be done remotely, it’s safe to say that the 2020 NFL Draft went smoothly. However, that doesn’t mean each team performed at the same level. Obviously, every team feels great about their draft class, and it’s true that we can’t be certain about how these prospects pan out. Yet, there’s no reason to … Continue reading NFL Draft Grades/Analysis: NFC

Ranking The Top 48 Quarterbacks From A Mathematical Perspective

When assessing who the best quarterbacks are, people have their different ways of evaluation. Some look at intangibles and playoff production, while others look at statistics such as passing yards and touchdowns. However, both of those methods have a flawed foundation, so I’ve come up with a different way to evaluate quarterback production. Using eight advanced statistics from Pro Football Focus, I’ve established a formula to rank … Continue reading Ranking The Top 48 Quarterbacks From A Mathematical Perspective

2020 NFL Draft: Day Three Grades/Analysis

The first days of the draft are what matters the most, but it’s the steals that teams find on the final day of the draft that can be the finishing touch that puts a team over the edge. Plenty of talented players were selected today, so we’ll go to team-by-team, grading each of their picks! Arizona Cardinals Round 4, Pick 113: IDL Leki Fotu, Utah … Continue reading 2020 NFL Draft: Day Three Grades/Analysis
