Link to share event: rstd.io/sports-meetup
Simon Fraser University has been a force in the NFL's Big Data Bowl for years. Focusing on punt returns, this team used tracking data to develop an algorithm to find the optimal path for a successful return, quantify player formations on the field and predict yards remaining on any frame of the return. This year's winning team will discuss their entry, the R code behind the optimal path and advice for this year's entrants.
Robyn, Brendan, Ryker and Elijah are all graduate students in statistics at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. They each have a passion for sports analytics and enjoy applying their stats knowledge to the game
