DLF 2021 Rookie Prospect Break Down with Matt Waldman

DLF 2021 Rookie Prospect Break Down with Matt Waldman

Matt Waldman had the pleasure of hanging out with Cal Shoemake for an 80-minute conversation about dynasty prospects and the Rookie Scouting Portfolio. 

After doing two podcasts with Cal Shoemake, I’ve become a big fan of his work as a host. One of the things I appreciate about Cal is his willingness to take different angles with interview subjects making the rounds.

  • Matt’s training and how it informed the RSP.
  • Why Matt evaluates with Yes/No questions.
  • The two scoring methods that Matt uses to evaluate a player.
  • Why certain grading scales–especially the NFL’s scouting–creates unnecessary variation.
  • The value of systematic processes dedicated to continuous learning.
  • Why competition for readers eyeballs matters, but it doesn’t have to be a cutthroat thing.
  • How Matt evaluates potential within a player.
  • Matt’s take on popular draft and fantasy narratives:
    • Are pocket quarterbacks going extinct?
    • The NFL Combine doesn’t matter.
    • Why compensatory factors matter when looking at data.
  • Ideal landing spots for 2021 rookies
  • Thoughts on various prospects.
  • NFL players in new situations.

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), download the 2021  Rookie Scouting Portfolio for $21.95.  

Matt’s new RSP Dynasty Rankings and Two-Year Projections Package is available for $24.95

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2020 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.  

Best yet, a percentage of each sale is set aside for a year-end donation to Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
