Really good research but I feel like the article is far to cerebral to be accessible by most readers. Also the conclusions are pretty hard to come by and the writing is pretty nebulous.

It was some very good info and research, not sure how you found it all but very interesting :-b Was a bit confusing the first time through, but you said it was a 3 part thing so I get where your going with it.

Thanks for the feedback. I pulled carries/ypc from nfl.com, http://www.myfantasyleague.com/fantasy- ... nkings.php for the historical ADP data, http://www.fftoday.com/stats/playerstat ... =&PosID=20 for fantasy points, and http://www.databasefootball.com/boxscor ... lelist.htm to pull the playoff touches. Lots of good information in these links.

Considering the mixed reviews of Part I, I will just send out the next parts to whoever asks for it. Feel free to PM me or leave a message here if you are interested.

I didn't think it was bad at all, quite the opposite, its excellent work.

Its just, difficult.

I want to see the other two segments published.

I liked the article. I think it should continue to be "published". I'd love to see what other factors you consider.
