Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast continues its summer NFL Projection Series with PFF Fantasy analyst Dwain McFarland. In this episode, they perform an in-depth look into the Cleveland Browns and the film and data complement famously.
Rookie Scouting Portfolio author Matt Waldman pairs up with Pro Football Focus fantasy analyst and high stakes competitor Dwain McFarland for their second year of projecting the NFL’s offenses. In this episode, Matt and Dwain compare their projections (and the process behind the work), analytic, and film observations of the Cleveland Browns offense.
- Why Baker Mayfield’s accuracy has been a longstanding issue with his game.
- Why Kevin Stefanski’s arrival from Minnesota and the offseason personnel acquisitions make Cleveland’s offensive plans obvious.
- Is Odell Beckham’s ceiling of potential lower in this offense than ever before?
- What makes Jarvis Landry the receiver that will remain on the field no matter what?
- Where do Matt and Dwain differ on Austin Hooper’s receiving production?
- Why Nick Chubb is the best back in the NFL?
- What most are missing when they tout Kareem Hunt as a potential spoiler for Chubb?
- Why does Minnesota’s depth chart provide a clue to Hunt’s statistical upside and Chubb’s floor?
- How the Cleveland tight ends are also the key to the most logical workload projection for the Browns runners.
