Making NFL Data Great Again

Bleeding-edge data. Updated weekly.
The State of NFL Stats in 2019

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. 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.

Our Team

Charters that work for Armchair 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.
