RSP contributor Dwain McFarland joins the RSP Cast to kick off our team-by-team NFL projection series for the 2020 season with an in-depth examination of the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins.
Dwain McFarland (@dwainmcfarland) and I begin our excellent conversations about how to project offenses with a look at Buffalo’s and Miami’s offenses:
- Statistically, Josh Allen has improved on the surface but what does the most meaningful data indicate about the Bills’ quarterback?
- Stefon Diggs should earn the biggest role among Buffalo’s receivers but has he walked into a similar situation that he was trying to leave in Minnesota?
- How do Dwain and Matt believe that running back Zack Moss’s role will evolve during the year as part of a committee situation with teammate Devin Singletary?
- When do Dwain and Matt believe Tua Tagovailoa will earn the starting job in Miami?
- Why was Dolphins receiver Preston Williams the preferred receiver in the offense last year, regardless of the starting quarterback and could that be the case in 2020?
- What makes DeVante Parker the wildcard for this Miami offense and how are Matt and Dwain approaching their projection of the receiver to begin the summer?
- What stat with Jordan Howard’s game disprove a longstanding narrative about the runner that also represents the canary in the coalmine for Bears GM Ryan Pace?
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 over 20 years of 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.
