Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.71: Projecting 2019 NFL Offenses with Dwain McFarland

RSP analyst Dwain McFarland joins Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast for an in-depth discussion on individual and team offense projections for the 2019 NFL season.  

It’s about damn time I brought Dwain McFarland onto the show. You know Dwain from his RSP Film And Data column on the site. This week, we begin an ongoing podcast series where we discuss our 2019 projections for NFL offenses.

This is far from a data-only discussion. We discuss the context of player movement, player style, scheme design, injuries, coaching changes, and usage histories.  This week, we discussed the Titans, Buccaneers, and Texans, spending roughly 25 minutes on each team:

  • The Titans will try to run an offense that’s more adaptable to its opponents and how that translates to production.
  • Derrick Henry optimism.
  • A.J. Brown vs. Adam Humphries and how it translates with usage and production.
  • Bruce Arians’ history with big slot receivers and the outlook for Chris Godwin.
  • Target share conversations with these three receiving corps.
  • Godwin and Mike Evans’ work in the red zone.
  • How Deshaun Watson has the most statistical upside of any quarterback in football.
  • Why Will Fuller is the lever that will dictate Watson’s production.
  • The potential emergence of Keke Coutee.
  • Why running back averages climbed in the NFL last year.

This is an info-packed podcast with both of us sharing projections for individual players and on-field reasons to support our thoughts. We’ll continue next week
