It uses advanced metrics, analytics, game tape reviews, statistical trends, and a myriad of other elements. It features a variety of systems, many of which are covered in this introductory article and reviewed in more detail at www.TheFootballScientist.com.
The EPA measurements detailed below are by TruMedia. Other advanced measurements outside of KC’s unique measurements are by TruMedia/PFF or Stathead unless otherwise noted. Fantasy point totals are in full PPR environments. Roster percentages are by ESPN league. Unless otherwise stated, statistical rankings extend through the end of Sunday night matches.

Will the double-digit volume targets now live up to Marquise Brown’s journey?
Brown started the season on a slow note as he only saw six targets in Week 1 against Kansas City, but that changed in the past two weeks as Brown led the league in runs (108) and the targets (28) within that time. Brown is certainly capable of handling a heavy workload, as his 146 targets in 2021 rank ninth among wide receivers.
