nflWAR: A Reproducible Method for Offensive Player Evaluation in Football

mrcaseb/nflfastr 3 Feb 2018

We discuss how our reproducible WAR framework, built entirely on publicly available data, can be easily extended to estimate WAR for players at any position, provided that researchers have access to data specifying which players are on the field during each play.

A parsimonious family of multivariate Poisson-lognormal distributions for clustering multivariate count data

anjalisilva/MPLNClust 15 Apr 2020

Due to this hierarchical structure, the MPLN model can account for over-dispersion as opposed to the traditional Poisson distribution and allows for correlation between the variables.
