It’s been a while since I posted, school, internships, and trips to Disney World have taken up a lot of time. My next project is further developing my fantasy football player projection model. Previously I did this through a laboring yearly process in Excel, so I’m trying to create something repeatable for future years as well as searching through the past. I’m developing python scripts to parse through advanced statistics from advancedfootballanalytics.com/ and pull fantasy/basic statistics from nfl.com . Next I’ll throw this information into the university versions of SAS and Tableau to analyze and visualize information.
For now, my plan is to use player performance from 2008 – present. This Bleacher / Report article shows the NFL Run-Pass Balance
Coming soon – before my fantasy draft on September 6th.
