Just because the guy's players, not a household name, doesn't mean we can't make him household.
Hello, I'm Lord Zone and this is SportsCastr news.
So the Devonta Freeman now has himself a new guy going out and trying to strike.
Yes, that's right.
He went out and hired Drew Rosenhaus, and Rosenhaus stepped up and said, Hey, we wanna work out a deal in the immediate future and we're open to any team.
He's healthy, He's in shape, and I'm on a mission to give for him to give a team a lift in late July.
Now here is the issue.
Is he gonna find him? One.
Everybody knows Rosenhaus is that guy that star NFL players go out to get.
Um, you know, just a just a kit hired onto a team and get them money.
And that's the funny thing about Rosenhaus.
Rosenhaus is a guy who who tries to get the best deal possible.
Right? First players, that's that's what he's known for and devoted.
Freeman is in a position to do that, so it's kind of odd because we want to go back and look at his stats.
I mean last year.
He was awful stat wise, right? I mean, awful.
UH, he played 14 games, carried the ball 184 times for only 656 yards and two touchdowns.
6 yards per carry, which is the first time he's been under four yards per carry since his rookie year.
Now, before that 2018 he got her after just two games and 14 carries.
So you really can't count those as an average.
So we got to go back two years back to 2017.
You know where he had again? 14 games, but a much better average of 4.
4 yards per carry.
But he only carried the ball 196 times.
He was part of that system, where they shared the football there in Atlanta between him and Coleman.
Before that, he made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and 2016 but he got the workhorse share that carries 265 carries in 2015 and 227 carries in 2016.
Both of those years, just breaking 1000 yards at 10 56 in 10 79 respectively, and both years he acquired 11 touchdowns, the differences in 2015 he had four yards a carry, and in 2016 he had 4.
8 yards a carry.
Now the rial question comes in.
How important is the vodka? Freeman, right.
How good is he with an offensive line? That's the big deal.
Is he better than your average running back behind an offensive line? Well, believe it or not, for youth, that aficionados who loved to go by stats, even advanced metrics There is a new stat line out there that you can use to find out that is right.
It is called, uh, it's part of the next Gen Stats, and you have expected yards per carry for running back.
They actually split it up into two different types of staff.
They have expected yards per carry, which is X.
Why PC rather than just yards per carry.
As you normally go by.
C, which is expected yards per carry, which is a baseline neck metric for blocking effectiveness and expected rushing yards.
Or why, which is what they expect them to acquire for the totality of the season are are why o.
E is rushing yards over expectations.
And then, of course, you got the for a tent, which is rushing yards over expectations per attempt Now.
Still, Devante Freeman had an awful season.
I mean, awful season in that whole situation.
He still was well below what was wanted last year.
So why would he? And to prove this out, you can look at your offensive lines.
You can look at your running backs like last year.
According to these new metrics, Derrick Henry led the NFL and R A Y e, which is, you know, rushing yards over expectations per attempt at.
He actually gained over a yard per attempt mawr than what he was expected to.
And that's including a pretty good offensive line.
But, I mean, he carried for over five yards a carry.
So what do you expect? He was 1.
5 yards per attempt over The next closest guy on that list was believer, not Nick Chubb at 0.
91 yards over expectations per attempt, and then rookie Josh Jacobs had 0.
81 yards over expectations for a tent now one about offensive lines who had the best offensive lines, according to the metrics.
Well, number one.
And this shouldn't be a surprise, really, because of what they did rushing yards wise was the Baltimore Ravens.
They actually gave their offensive line, gave their running backs and Lamar Jackson's 0.
32 yards per rushing attempt Mawr than what was expected.
Philadelphia Eagles was in the negatives.
25 So that's a happy your more than 1/2 a yard difference on per expectations.
So you could actually go through for those for those people who are looking at your running backs and thinking, Who do I want to pick up this year? For fantasy, right? You can look at any running backs that slipped from one team to another.
Like, for instance, Devante Freeman.
You can kind of expect what he's going to get, depending upon which team he lands on.
If he lands on the team by going to the teams, advanced metrics, see what that offensive line is expected to give right, and then add in what Davante Freeman is expected to give, at least from last year.
Now that's going to be pretty, pretty tough to do, Uh, but still, it'll be fun.
One of the other running teams that you are expecting is the Indianapolis Colts offensive line.
22 yards per a tent over expectations to their running backs.
They just picked up a new rookie, Jonathan Taylor, in the early in the second round or about mid second round.
Right? So you take his stats at it with the extra yards of expectations, and then you could figure out what he's going to get per attempt.
And I'm pretty sure Jonathan Taylor's yards per Terry expectation is actually going to be pretty high.
Along with Marlon Mack Johnson.
Tailors will probably be higher than Marlon Max.
That as you will because who's to say Johnson? Taylor is going to get us money carries being in the fact that Taylor had 18 fumbles in his three seasons in college.
Will the Indianapolis Colts? This is something you'll have to figure out yourself for fantasy.
Will they still feed him the ball nearly as much as they do? Marlon Matt? Knowing that he puts the ball on the ground through college like a crazy person, six times a season.
Whereas Marla Matt didn't drop the ball once last year.
Odds are the colt starting out are going to probably favor Mac heavily because he is consistent and they trust him with the football.
And then they will probably start feeding Jonathan as the season begins and as it stretches on, as long as he continues to show that his ball security has improved since college.
So those of you that are actually in these fantasy leagues and want to actually get a little leg up, we'll check out these stats very interesting, and I think that you will have a lot of fun with them.
I still don't know them 100% but I'm sure that my co host, rare out who absolutely loves Advanced Metrics, has probably already downloaded it and studied it and broke it down and figured out every little thing about it.
Maybe the next time we talk, maybe we'll get a little bit more information about these advanced metrics.
So until next time, that's all I've got for you right now.
