Nick and Josh talk about the challenge surrounding building models to predict rookie wide receiver production. They discuss the various way to measure success and the various models in existence as well as the different metrics that are commonly used in prospect WR models. They also talk about ways to improve rookie WR models and to what degree that is possible. After the sponsor break, they talk about what similarity scores are, how the RotoViz suite of apps features them, and how to use them in your fantasy research, whether that’s weekly, season long, or during the offseason.
