Working my Chapter 6 Data in my Textbook on Drafting. Shooting for the 2017 first edition in May on Amazon.
I guess I am excited as I go through the data and wanted to share some fun facts for your 2017 Drafting.
Figure 42 in my Chapter 6 focuses attention on a comparison between the 2016 RB and WR positions in terms of scaled to average. We can now define success as above the average, positive numbers. Negative numbers will note failures. This figure contains the numbers of successes above the average over the 48th RBs and WRs. The dashed black line denoted the success failure breakpoint. The rounds are divided by the pink dotted lines. The actual positions and their successes are displayed within each round.
The two patterns numerically are; RBs 8, 8, 3 and 7 successes and WRs are 8, 9, 6 and 3 successes.
The y-axis is the scaled End of Season Performance (Dec 2016) vs the preseason ADP level (Sept 2016)
I conclude that in 2016; The WRs were best early and riskier later. The RBs we…
FYI Working on updating my Textbook on drafting and have been drilling down deep into the data. Here is the first figure and draft write up for my Chapter 6 redo in my Drafting Textbook. ===============================Chapter 6. Clues
for Drafting; ADP vs. Seasonal Player Performance
I analyzed the relationship of the QB, RB, TE, and WR players
ranked by their pre-season ADP (PS-ADP to about the 180th player
number – total position except DEF and K) and their end-of-season long PPR
points scored (ES PPR) to determine how strong the finish was for each position
PS-ADP vs. the ES-PPR. The first figure of this data of the PS-ADP vs. ES-PPR from the years 2016 is
presented in Figure 36.
The first quest was to determine what was the differences in the
players on an ADP draft list 180th or less or players greater than a
180th ADP level. (ADP 2016 and
earlier historical data is available free at several websites, I randomly picked
one and used it through the chapter)
In Figure 36 in the top…
