Former NFL scout Matt Manocherian (@mattmano) of Sports Info Solutions and football analytics pioneer Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) of Football Outsiders (@fboutsiders) go one-on-one this week to talk potential surprise teams for the 2020 NFL season. They open with a discussion of how cutdowns are going to work with no preseason games (0:46) and good news on the COVID front (so far) (2:31), before transitioning to a look at teams on the lower end of projections who could be better than expected (4:08) and teams on the higher end of projections who could be worse than expected (11:31). They finish with an examination of how depth could impact the outcomes for some teams if injuries strike (15:22).
