Making NFL Data Great Again
Our goal is to provide useful NFL play-data at a reasonable price-point. It's not complicated.
The State of NFL Stats in 2017
Without question, there has never been a better time for advanced NFL analysis and recent advances in technology means more data than ever is being crunched.
Unfortunately, this deluge of big-data is not filtering down into the hands of the common-folk and those of us not connected to the teams themselves or
the various media empires that have have moved quickly to corner the market have been left on the outside looking in.
Over the past 6 years, we have done our best to step into this void. Our data has been used by thousands of researchers and companies during this time period.
Charters that work for Armchair Analysis.com are not just casual fans or college interns — they are
a mix of data scientists and fantasy football pro's who know the game inside-and-out.
They also have one important thing in common: they are all partners in the business and each and every
one uses the data that we collect for their own endeavors. They have a vested interest in maintaining data quality
and a desire to continually push the program forward with the addition of new metrics each season.
Our staff of proffesional charters grew to 16-strong in 2016 and will expand again in 2017 to a total of 32 people.
For the 2017 season, we are charting the following variables on over 40,000 plays:
- Personnel Groupings
- Depth-of-Target (on incompletes)
- Base Defense (4-3, 3-4 etc)
- Pressure on QB (LB's and DB's blitzing)
- QB Hits
- QB Flushes
- QB Throw aways
- Screen Passes
- Missed and Broken Tackles
- Dropped Passes
- Player snap counts
