Sara,

Great stuff as always! It's been awhile since i've commented. I need your help! It seems like there are a TON of 4th and 5th and 6th round RB's this year. Have you noticed this too? Anyone doing analysis on diamonds in the rough of these middling RB's? Thanks!

Do you have any link that tells the standard deviation of a particular stat by position year to year? I have found lots of data on correlation but not a lot listing the standard deviation.
i.e. A runningback with 1000 yards last year correlates well (tends to repeat similar numbers with a correlation of .70. But I want standard deviation i.e. on average runningbacks standard deviation are 20% of last year's total or a flat number like 200 yards which tells you you can be 62.5% confident that a player with 1000 yards last year will get 800-1200 yards this year. The std deviation number I made up because I don't know it or how to calculate it!
