Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.72: Projecting Arizona, Baltimore, and Cincinnati with RSP’s Dwain McFarland


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

Last week, RSP Film and Data contributor Dwain McFarland and I had a great conversation about player and team projections for the Titans, Buccaneers, and Texans offenses. This week, we continue an ongoing podcast series with Baltimore, Arizona, and Cincinnati.

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. We spend roughly 25 minutes on each team:

  • Offensive coordinator Greg Roman’s data history as an architect of NFL schemes.
  • Where Lamar Jackson must improve as a passer and why last year’s struggles could be a matter of timing.
  • The importance of Willie Snead in the Ravens offense and the acquisition and role of Seth Roberts.
  • Projecting the role and production of Marquise Brown and Miles Boykin.
  • Mark Ingram’s usage in the passing game.
  • The Kyler Murray-Kliff Kingsbury buzz in Arizona: Where it can go right and wrong this year.
  • Which receivers play outside for the Cardinals and does it matter?.
  • Projecting David Johnson’s touchdown totals.
  • The Zach Taylor-Bengals fit: Do the Bengals have the personnel to embrace the Rams’ offense?
  • Can Tyler Boyd thrive as the Robert Woods of the Bengals’ offense?
  • Why the Bengals drafted Drew Sample so early?
  • A new nickname for UDFA WR Stanley Morgan, Jr.

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
