Vizualizing Saquon's biggest runs

Recommended Posts

I got my hands on some tracking data from the NFL Big Data Bowl. The goal was to try to predict how many yards a running back will gain, so they provide player tracking information at for all 22 players on the field at the moment the ball is handed off to the running back.

 I created a script to visualize each play. 

  • Direction of the numbers shown the player's orientation
  • Direction and length of the arrow show the direction and magnitude of speed
  • Bubble correlates to the weight of the player

I plotted a couple of Saquon's biggest runs.  Thought I'd share with you guys.


Saquon's 78 yard run against the Redskins



Saquon's 68 yard run against the Jaguars.  His first TD run.
