Abstract: The current state of football analytics is heavily based on proprietary and potentially biased subjective data. Using the ‘nflscrapR’ package in R, I will demonstrate the type of reproducible research one can conduct with publicly available NFL data. Key concepts in football analytics research will be covered such as a comparison of the value of rushing and passing plays with expected points, as well as analyzing the most impactful plays with win probability.
