Matt and Josh begin by discussing the Star Wars franchise and debating the merits of Rogue One versus The Force Awakens. Next Matt gives an in-depth look at the creation of The Workhorse Score and how it should be interpreted. Josh and Matt discuss a number of players from Blair Andrew’s latest article using Workhorse Scores. Finally the hosts discuss whether coaches really have much influence over run-pass splits over the course of the season, if taking a running back in the first round of the NFL draft is wise, and if they think Leonard Fournette being taken at 1.01 or 1.02 is a smokescreen.
