Who am I?I'm Tucker Boynton, a data scientist and lifelong NFL fan. I created this website to make advanced analytics accessible to all football fans.
What is nflfastR?nflfastR is a database that contains advanced analytics on every play since 1999 (shoutout to Ben Baldwin, Sebastian Carl, and Tan Ho). Despite the wealth of information available through nflfastR, access is limited to those with coding proficiency. This web application provides NFL play-by-play data without requiring any background in coding.
So, what's the point?Hopefully, it will enable and inspire more fans to go deeper than what they see on TV, hear on the radio, and read online. Here's a link to a glossary of the technical terms in the nflfastR database, and here's a link to the nflfastR starter page if you're interested in coding on your own.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.
