In Class 4 we get to what many consider the heart of sports analytics: sports statistics. Statistics have long been a part of sports, but recent times have seen an explosion of new, improved, advanced statistics. In this class we talk about several examples of advanced statistics and then discuss methods for developing new player performance metrics. In this episode Professor Mike Lewis breaks down the NFL Passer Rating Statistic, On Base Plus Slugging (OBPS), and the most common approach to advanced statistics: Multi Attribute Decision Models.
