Competitive drafts are already starting to take … Continue reading Fantasy Football 2021 Quarterback Rankings + Projections

Fantasy Football Deep Dive: Correlation + Stability Of Key Metrics

However, this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try our best to formulate ideal expectations on the value each … Continue reading Fantasy Football Deep Dive: Correlation + Stability Of Key Metrics

Changing The Way We Evaluate NFL QB Prospects

There is no more exciting time in the NFL, in my opinion, than the NFL Draft. Studies have shown that successful rosters are built through the draft, and it makes sense; the top players tend to be kept by their respective teams, and thus don’t often reach free agency. The surplus value of getting a cost-controlled player for four years, in addition to a fifth-year … Continue reading Changing The Way We Evaluate NFL QB Prospects

NFL: Playing “GM” For Every AFC Team Ahead of Free Agency

Last Sunday, we reached a sad point of the yearly cycle: it was the first Sunday without football. Fret not, though!

Optimism towards the future, player movement, the offseason provides us with a lot of entertainment, as … Continue reading NFL: Playing “GM” For Every AFC Team Ahead of Free Agency

NFL Draft Grades/Analysis: AFC

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: AFC

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

Official “What I Would Do” 2020 NFL Mock Draft

Several draft analysts like to predict what teams will do in the draft, but in my opinion, they can get somewhat redundant after a while- the predicted picks usually don’t skew much, and in the end, most mock drafts don’t reflect how the draft will play out. Instead, today, I’ll play the role of general manager for all 32 teams, and create a “what I … Continue reading Official “What I Would Do” 2020 NFL Mock Draft

The Ultimate Positional Value 2020 NFL Draft Board
