2021 NFL Draft QB Rankings: #3, Zach Wilson

I understand the hype around this kid. Really, I do. I get why people say he shares a lot of the same traits as Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers. He can throw on the run; he’s got that flair where he makes impossible throws look easy. Really, I understand the hype. I’m sure everyone has […]

NBA Player Rankings: 4/8/21

I decided to tweak the TNC formula to factor in the percent of a player’s made field goals he is assisted on. I just feel like the current formula is still a bit skewed towards big men. A thought occurred to me, after updating the rankings and seeing that Bam Adebayo was ranked ahead of […]

NBA Team Statistical Rankings: Mar. 29, 2021

Now that I have finished my NBA player statistical rankings, I can do my NBA team statistical rankings, since individual stars factor heavily into the team rankings.

2021 NFL Draft QB Rankings: #1, Trevor Lawrence

Now that the 49ers have traded up to the third pick, it is all but assured that the first three picks will be quarterbacks.

I wrote in my Matt Stafford piece that I think he’s now the 3rd best QB in the NFC behind Brady and Rodgers. I even put him ahead of Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott. So that got me thinking about the QB rankings in the NFC from 1-16, and then I had to make this […]

Week 16 NFL Statistical Rankings

The formula has been solidified and is unchanged since last week. We have a new #1 team in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They’re followed by the Packers, Chiefs and Saints, but all of the top 4 teams in the statistical rankings are fairly close to one another. The Ravens, Bills and Steelers make […]

Week 15 NFL Statistical Ranks

A few more tweaks to the statistical rankings formula: Double-weighted offensive points per game scored. I read an article that looked at the stats that correlate most with winning, and, unsurprisingly, points scored per game was #1. So I double-weighted the category in my rankings. Double-weighted turnover margin. Second-highest correlation with winning. Although with this […]
