Quality Analytics-Based Information
Long time listener and I have no excuse for not leaving a review before now. I regularly listen to the NFL and PGA podcasts and sprinkle in other sports on occasion. For both NFL and PGA, Jim and Brandon provide their analysis primarily based on data-driven methods which they explain in enough detail for the average person to understand without being overwhelmed. They also do an excellent job providing context by applying the analysis to various line-up strategies and concepts. For me, this is a high priority show in a sea of content.
Are you in on the con?
Fanduel goes dark on the biggest day of the week. No update from the site. Stats provider supposedly down, but other sports are updating. And the official podcast of Fanduel doesn’t even utter a peep on it. NOT A WORD. I notice Jim mentioned “yeah, I added (no name) claypool to my gpp pool at like 10% last minute so didnt mention it to anyone before now.” Want to bet Claypool is played at an unexplainably high rate when the numbers finally come out?
