D.J. Moore leads the way as Anthony Amico presents his early wide receiver projections for the 2018 draft.

Aptly titled. I had seen a little bit of this in early analysis but to see it on a table like that, wow. Going to be a fun off-season of discussions. For some, it will come down to whether or not you throw out Ridley's final season. But even if you do there may still be concerns.

@amicsta great article, thanks for posting it.
I couldn't find it in a cursory search, but have you or someone else at rotoviz done this projection in previous years?
#4 By: Anthony Amico, February 14th, 2018 11:00
Hey McG. There have been other WR models posted, but I believe this is the first of this kind. Certainly will be something I look to continue going forward. I may even do another post showing some old scores so people get a feel for them.

Great read as usual, @amicsta
The early feel in the community seems to be this is a relatively weak WR class (for fantasy purposes at least). You think that's a fair assessment?
#6 By: Anthony Amico, February 14th, 2018 12:23
My feelings are that it's a class that lacks elite players, but has a lot of depth. I think the scores depict that as well, but I will have to look back at past classes to confirm. On the to-do list.

excellent stuff! Would definitely like to see the full model output including previous years to see where these guys sit in comparison to past prospects.
#8 By: Anthony Amico, February 14th, 2018 16:11
Appreciate the feedback on this. It would actually be a fun exercise to look back at the last two classes, since they were not even used to build the model (they have not played 3 years yet).
#9 By: Regression From the Mean, February 14th, 2018 16:32
yep, and I was thinking even previous to that. One thing I love about Freak Score/Phenom Index and other metrics used here on RV is that you can look at where the players in a current year sit in the historical list of prospects

Hey @amicsta, great stuff as always, thank you.
Sorry to bother you, but wondering if you can please direct me to the 2018 data for phenom index and career MS for these receivers.
Thanks very much!

@jesseross99 Here's the WR Freak Scores article: http://rotoviz.com/2018/04/sleepers-and-busts-2018-wide-receiver-freak-scores/
Also, @amicsta has done a slew of articles with the raw data available. Here's an example: http://rotoviz.com/2018/01/2018-nfl-draft-preview-pacific-12/
Those are very information rich posts, so enjoy em!

Thanks @hrr5010. I am specifically looking for phenom index and career MS. I've tried finding that data in the articles @amicsta has done in 2018 but cannot locate (the second link you provided has a bit of career MS data, but just for a select few WR not the entire class). Maybe I'm just too early and this data will be released later in the offseason (?), but I thought maybe I could find it in an app or something.

That’s a better question for @FF_Contrarian

Yep! Thanks for pointing out. Now all I need is Career MS data...
