Calling all NFL experts: Do you want to become part of an extensive charting program that continues to expand each season? Are you interested in gaining 100% free access to all of our data (2000 – 2016) along with free daily updates next season?
Making NFL Data Great Again
Our goal is to provide useful NFL play-data at a reasonable price-point. It's not complicated.
The State of NFL Stats in 2016
Without question, there has never been a better time for advanced NFL analysis and recent advances in technology means more data than ever is being crunched.
Unfortunately, this deluge of big-data is not filtering down into the hands of the common-folk and those of us not connected to the teams themselves or the various media empires that have have moved quickly to corner the market have been left on the outside looking in.
Over the past 5 years, we have done our best to step into this void. Our data has been used by thousands of researchers and companies during this time period.
Charters that work for Armchair Analysis.com are not just casual fans or college interns — they are a mix of data scientists and fantasy football pro's who know the game inside-and-out.
They also have one important thing in common: they are all partners in the business and each and every one uses the data that we collect for their own endeavors. They have a vested interest in maintaining data quality and a desire to continually push the program forward with the addition of new metrics each season.
Our staff of proffesional charters grew to 16 in 2016 and will expand again in 2017 to 32 — one for each and every NFL team.
For the 2016 season, we charted the following variables on over 40,000 plays:
- Dropped Passes
- Personnel Groupings
- Missed and Broken Tackles
- Player snap counts
With the addition of 16 more charters for the 2017 seeason, this list will grow BIGLY to include even more detailed data on both sides of the ball.
