Don’t Let Mike Glennon or Kevin White Scare You Away from Cameron Meredith

By 

The days of sneaky sleepers are over. With the current state of information sharing, it’s rare that any player flies under the radar. That makes the ADP of Cameron Meredith even more surprising after his breakout 2016.

Yards Per Attempt & What It Means For 2017: AFC North/South

By 

I first read about Yards Before Contact or “Vision Yards” in this article by Zero RB inventor Shawn Siegele. Shawn explained that while it’s useful to see which running backs had the best blocking, it also helps to identify which backs got more than what was blocked on average.

Early Round Landmines – LeSean McCoy

By 

The early rounds of 2017 MFL10 drafts are a chilling place to be. The dread begins to creep in late in the first round, once we leave the land of the elite eight, and doesn’t really ease up until the noose begins to loosen around round four.

Depth-Adjusted Efficiency — 2016’s Best and Worst

By 

Yesterday I showed which players were 2016’s most- and least- efficient pass catchers from the perspective of yards per target over expectation (YPTOE). YPTOE situationally adjusted a player’s efficiency based on down, distance, and yard line. Today, I will depth-adjust those numbers, because not all passing depths are created equal.

Gabriel and Hogan Topped 2016’s Receiving Efficiency Results

To Gronk, or not to Gronk?

By 

It’s late March, and the RotoViz crew got together to do some spring cleaning at headquarters. Naturally conversation turned to everyone’s favorite red-blooded American tight end: Rob Gronkowski. Gronk is currently going off the board at the end of the second round in both MFL10 redraft leagues and dynasty start-ups.
