Episode 6 – Jacob Buettner

Episode 6. Maybe?

Regardless of episode number, we got together with Jacob Buettner (@FFSkiBum) of Dynasty Happy Hour to discuss his work on running back evaluation. Jacob’s used multiple player metrics, draft value, and landing spot to create a model that helps gauge a player’s effectiveness within an offense once they’re drafted. The crew discusses Jacob’s model, rookies from this year’s class, and some basics on the analytics involved with predictive modeling.

Topics include:

Memorable moments of the 2018 draft.

Running Back Fits: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Modeling Running Backs and if the process can be predictive
