DOM Episode 36 – Peter Howard (@pahowdy)

The offseason¬†is when the public spends most of its time on Narrative Street. Evidence-based takes fall into the background as we argue over prospect highlight reels and what-if scenarios regarding draft position or NFL production. It’s a season unto itself.

Are they 100% effective? Nope. But we can extract a process for evaluating a player based on what information is available. Outliers or players that buck the trend can come from any class.
