Nick and Josh talk WR prospect metrics. Specifically, they dive into Dede Westbrook, Mike Williams, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Amara Darboh and break down their numbers both from an air yards perspective, as well as from a Phenom Index or rookie model perspective to determine if they are too high or too low in the current RotoViz Scouting Index. They end the segment talking about Josh’s article at Rotoworld on buy-low candidates for 2017 using air yards, including Allen Robinson, DeAndre Hopkins, and Marvin Jones.
