Code Breaker - Season 1, Episode 11:
Josh Larky (@jlarkytweets), PlayerProfiler's Head of Analytics, is joined by Neel Gupta (@neel2112), a summer analytics intern at PlayerProfiler/RotoUnderworld.
Neel is armed with one of the more unique academic backgrounds, which has helped to shape his unconventional ways of studying the game and how he gains an edge with out of the box thinking.
Together, they discuss the game theory behind intentional drafting, stacking in best ball and redraft, general tournament strategy, and many other topics.
Is there such a thing, mathematically, as a "better in best ball" player?
When are you actually "allowed" and potentially encouraged to handcuff your running back in a best ball draft?
An in-depth look at why standard deviation is not a good statistic to use in isolation for evaluating the volatility of players.
