Football Outsiders brings you a series of brand new, in-depth statistics you can't find anywhere else. With these stats, we attempt to bring objective analysis to football that matches the revolution in baseball writing and analysis over the past 20 years. We have new methods for analyzing skill players, offensive and defensive lines, special teams, and total team efficiency. Right now these statistics are complete for the years 1986-2018, and they are updated each week during the 2019 season.
We don't just have reams of stats, though; we also write in-depth articles explaining these statistics as well as articles to answer specific questions and challenge conventional wisdom about the game. Some of our articles aren't necessarily based on statistics, but still give a more intelligent viewpoint on professional (and college) football, combining fan obsession with a bit of acerbic wit. Our lineup of regular columns is split between those articles which appear on Football Outsiders, and those which appear as part of our partnership with ESPN.com. Some of our writers (and former writers) also appear on other sites including SI.com, SB Nation, CBS Sports, and Bleacher Report.
