Pro Football Network (PFN) is a website dedicated to publishing high-quality content that is unique from other websites. We are passionate and committed to the small details and to telling a story through analytics, stats, film and all other means necessary. PFN is focused around four primary areas, which are as follows:
We have a robust, year-round NFL Draft section that is led by renowned NFL Draft Analyst Tony Pauline. Our goal is to provide comprehensive coverage that covers all of the conferences throughout Division I football while also shining a light on some of the smaller school prospects in both DI and DII.
PFN Offensive Share Metric / General NFL
We cover the NFL through film breakdowns and the lens of our proprietary grading system called Offensive Share Metric (PFN OSM). This system was created in consultation with NFL coaches, agents, and players. We created this model because it can often be difficult to tell how well a player is performing during an NFL game. Conventional statistics are helpful, but they almost never tell the full story.
The OSM grades measure how much of a player’s statistical production they were actually responsible for. For example, a wide receiver that doesn’t drop passes and breaks a lot of tackles will have a higher grade than one who did the opposite. So, a player with a higher grade was more responsible for their own production than a player with a lower one. These facts make the OSM useful for gauging an individual player’s actual effectiveness in a game, separate from the performances of their teammates.
Our Fantasy Football department will provide all the regular content you see everywhere else, but we will do it with the spin of providing expert and personalized advice. Many times, websites produce content that is much too general. Instead, we are going to tell our readers what they should strongly consider doing and help them get an edge over their opponent. Using PFN OSM along with other resources, we will go beyond the surface and provide unique analysis.
We strive to make our NFL Betting section a warehouse of compelling, money-making arguments that are married to rarely seen complements such as film study. With the broadening areas that permit sports gambling, this unit covers all major angles to games – straight, totals, futures, player props, and in-game bets. We aim to carve a niche in providing unique information that others may cite in their own research of a game’s angle.
