Guest: Alok Pattani (@AlokPattaniESPN)

Alok is an associate director at ESPN Stats & Info. On the show, Alok talks about the evolution of stats-based analysis at ESPN and how its QBR metric views recently re-signed quarterbacks like Cam Newton and Ryan Tannehill; discusses ESPN’s quarterback draft projection model; and enlightens us on what the numbers have say about how how good of a job the BSC selection committee did in picking the four playoff teams.

Host Discussion: Identifying High-Floor & Boom-Bust Wide Receivers

Matt and Kevin discuss a recent RotoViz article identifying which wide receiver prototypes (High-Floor and Boom-Bust) the top-12 receivers fall into, including the uber-high floor Antonio Brown, the consistently TD-dependent Dez Bryant, and the transition of TY Hilton from boom/bust WR2 to high-floor WR1. Plus, Matt argues why Julio Jones might be the best fantasy WR in 2015, and Kevin professes his love for Alshon Jeffery.
