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!
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!
