dc.description.abstractIn this paper, I have provided a detailed introduction to modeling NFL Next Gen Stats Tracking Data to tackle complicated football analytics problems. I have further outlined why I believe such modeling is important, and how it can add to the current world of football analytics. Finally, I attempted to use the tracking data to model both EPA and yards gained, and, although ultimately not as successful as I had hoped, I believe I showed that there is reason to believe that the data can be modeled successfully with more data and more advanced feature engineering.
