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 New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
Dwain McFarland (@dwainmcfarland) and I continue our excellent conversations about how to project offenses with a look at the Cowboys and Giants offenses:
- How much does the run-to-pass ratio change with Jason Garrett and an improved offensive line in New York?
- Why does Matt believe the presence of Levine Toilolo could hurt Sterling Shepard’s output?
- What makes Daniel Jones a viable fantasy option even if key data still calls his long-term NFL development into question?
- Why are people underrating rookie CeeDee Lamb’s first-year potential?
- Which receiver could be sent to the sideline in 12 and 21 personnel sets?
- Why is the idea of running backs earning downfield routes a trendy and overrated facet of analysis these days?
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.
