Abstract: NFL General Managers are constantly faced with high-risk, multi-million dollar decisions of selecting football players for their teams that maximize their teams ability to win while minimizing cost. This paper seeks to provide an analytical approach to measure player performance by creating a framework based on expected points and then valuing players, specifically running backs, based on this framework.
