I managed to get my hands on some NFL play-by-data spanning 2007 – 2014 seasons. This was a gold mine of data, with each year containing tens of thousands of rows of data for me to digest. I’ve been looking for this kind of stuff to plug in to Tableau Public for a while so I’d have something to start experimenting with.
I started exploring football stats with Tableau Public with some analysis like the this one:
Evaluation of Receiving Yards vs. # of Times Targeted For Entire 2014 Regular Season
This is just the beginning… I’m hoping to dig into this more and add more details later. I think this will be a game changer for me this Fantasy Football Season.
