Matt Waldman’s RSP Film And Data with Adam Harstad: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Blowing My Wad on One Free Agent (and Other Fascinating NFL/Fantasy Topics)

Matt Waldman’s RSP Film And Data with Adam Harstad: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Blowing My Wad on One Free Agent (and Other Fascinating NFL/Fantasy Topics)

Footballguys staff writer Adam Harstad joins RSP Film and Data as Matt Waldman’s cohost for the 2022 football season to discuss practices that will make you a better fantasy GM and NFL fan.

There are a lot of excellent writers and analysts in the fantasy industry. There are few that I hold in as high a regard as Adam. He’s a forthright human being with a tremendous intellect whose approach to analysis in this space differs from most.

He’s also an excellent fantasy GM in re-draft and dynasty formats. Unlike Dwain McFarland, whose work delves into the statistical process, Adam spends a lot of time examining results and dealing with broad themes of decision-making that help us become better fantasy players and fantasy analysts:

  • Why Adam encourages fantasy GMs to spend a vast majority of one’s FAAB on one player, save the rest for rotating streamers on kicker and defense, and devote more energy to preemptive picks in FCFS.
  • The difference between descriptive and predictive stats.
  • Why yards per carry can have value but are misused.
  • The greatness of Billy Howton, Del Shofner, Henry Ellard, William Andrews, and John Jefferson and the events that altered their potential to earn the acclaim they deserve.
  • How the media’s relationship has changed with the NFL and why Vincent Jackson’s contract impasse with the Chargers would have been seen in a different light.
  • The ways fans and media pathologize player personalities inaccurately: Odell Beckham, Tom Brady, Antonio Brown, and Russell Wilson.
  • Why Momentum Exists and Running Backs Matter, but the way analytics-driven media communicate their points tarnishes their ideas.

And of course, if you want to know about the rookies from this draft class, you will find the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), with the 2022 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, proceeds from sales are set aside for a year-end donation to Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse of children.
