Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast continues its 2019 Team Projection Series with Dwain McFarland with a deep dive into the individual and team performance of the New Orleans Saints offense.
Dwain McFarland and I continue our excellent conversations about how to project offenses with a look at the Saints offense:
- How has Drew Brees’ game aged?
- Could the 2019 Saints offense rival some of the best that Brees and Sean Payton have authored?
- Michael Thomas’ production suffered down the stretch when defenses could bracket him. Does this factor into our 2019 outlooks?
- Will another receiver on the dept chart emerge? Who are the candidates?
- How high are we on Jared Cook?
- Is Latavius Murray a victim of past stints that weren’t an optimal fit for his talents?
- Will Matt continue to be sky-high on projecting touchdowns for running backs?
As mentioned in previous podcasts, I highly recommend reading McFarland’s new piece at the RSP site on How to Project NFL Offenses. If you’re a fantasy player, NFL beat writer, or football analyst, you should consider learning to do your own projections and Dwain has 20 years experience as well as success in high stakes fantasy leagues.
Even if you don’t have time to do projections and want pointers on how to select others, this article is a great resource. If you’re an RSP subscriber, you can also stay tuned for future RSP Newsletters where Dwain will be providing snapshots of individual player projections from his league-wide process.
