Interview With Sports Analytics Blog
I recently did an interview with SportsAnalyticsBlog.com, which you can check out right here. Here’s a preview:
Are advanced statistics becoming more prevalent in fantasy football? Do you look at any advanced metrics (Total QBR, etc.) when trying to find the best players?
No doubt about it. There are all kinds of advanced metrics out there that help me and others win leagues. I don’t use Total QBR because I think it overvalues “clutch” situations, but I look at other predictors of success in order to uncover value on players who haven’t broken out just yet, but are likely to do so in the future—yards per route, points per opportunity, 40 times, speed scores, average depth of passes, and stuff like that. As long as you can establish that a certain stat predicts future success, then it’s valuable.
