On this episode of the Off The Charts Football Podcast, Matt Manocherian (@mattmano) welcomes Stephen Polacheck (@PolacheckFF), Alex Vigderman (@VigManOnCampus), and James Weaver of the SIS research team to the show to take an in-depth look at Expected Points Added (EPA). The guys discuss EPA as more of a framework than a stat (1:43), their favorite thing about EPA (5:48), passing vs. rushing EPA (9:03), why EPA is not an individual metric (23:17), how downs make a difference (29:42), the positives and negatives of Total Points, which is based on EPA (37:29), and what other currencies might be interesting for thinking about player value (41:57).
