Quick Analysis of Offensive Lines from 2016 Data. Where are this year Draft Advantages? Surprising but Fun Data!

Here are three figures that gives a landscape view of each team's offensive lines
** My Updated textbook work is going well. It has an insane amount of data. There is nothing like it.  Out by Late May 2017** 

** 668 pages action packed with figures, tables, statistical testing everything you would expect from a Ph.D. in Microbiology**

The first figure gives a score number for the offensive line's support for a team's rushing/RBs and for pass protection for QB.RB/WR/TEs. The numbers go from best at 100 to worst at 0. The team's data was colorized for emphasis.

I also included a R/P ratio number to see the team's skewness.  Thus BUF is skewed to run protection and poor in pass blocking. Upgrade the RBs and downgrade the WRs TEs.

I took the raw scores and scaled them to the league average to highlight what OLs are doing better or worse than average (see Figure 1-2). I added the two numbers to see the overall OL strength. Color coded for annotation of the best …

Current PPR ADP and Risk Analysis. Team, Position and Player Landscapes

I am deep into research for my textbook on drafting. I needed a break so I whipped this out this afternoon.

I use my early season visuals not to be anchored into thoughts. I use these data aids to inspire questions, comparisons and more research. 

As you go into this post, write down questions and think about the answers. 

I first present a drafting landscape of positions, positional runs, and patterns. 

Why these patterns? What is the public thinking. 

We in some sense are all fighting against the wisdom of the crowd. The ADP is the public and it must be respected. We need to be ahead and know when to go against the popular ideas. 

The order of the positions is RBs, TEs, WRs and QBs. The first 4 picks are 3 RBs and 1 WR. and then we see a run of 6 WRs. 

The first QB drafted at pick 20 and first TE at the 24 pick. 

By end of round 4 the first 24 WRs are gone while only 16 RBs are gone. WRs are still leading the charge. 

These next tables highlight the position, the players rank, risk and scale…

These data tables will give a look at the current MFL10 ADP and Risk .    I wrote about using my MFL 10 data in a post last year.       See this link MFL Data Past Post Read Me
