Then, the guys are joined by special guest Mike Tanier, the NFL National Lead Writer for Bleacher Report, for deep dives into the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles.
Matt Manocherian of Sports Info Solutions and Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders talk offensive line issues, the downfield passing of Carson Wentz and Alex Smith, the differences between Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker's roles in the Dolphins offense, and the two Most Important Games of the Week. Then, special guest NFL Scout Ryan Hollern, formerly of the Saints and Bills, joins us to discuss the prospects that he has had his eyes on in the early part of the season. Join us to find out if the scouting matches the analytics!
Matt Manocherian of Sports Info Solutions and Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders engage "National Jump to Conclusions Week," including Patriots-Chiefs by the numbers, the Rams leading the league in DVOA, the "reality football" implications of the David Johnson injury, revisiting Marshawn Lynch's fit in Oakland, and the surprising performance of Nelson Agholor for the Eagles. Also: playoff odds anomalies, "Tank-watch" explores the potential of Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson as NFL players, and the "Most Important Game of the Week." Follow us on twitter @SportsInfo_SIS and @FBOutsiders.
This week on Off The Charts: What can we expect this year from some of the NFL players who have switched teams in 2017? Will Marshawn Lynch fit Oakland's power running game? Is Jay Cutler actually an upgrade over Ryan Tannehill? And what kind of impact can we expect from DeSean Jackson in Tampa Bay? Also, we begin our "Tank-watch" with a look into Josh Rosen's charting stats from his uneven opening week game, and we'll preview the "Most Important Game of the Week" for playoff odds, where the winner of Giants-Cowboys will double their chances of making the postseason relative to the loser. Join Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders and Matt Manocherian, formerly a scout with the Saints and Browns and currently of Sports Info Solutions, as they break it all down.
