MELLS

Multilevel Expected points added Linear Least Squares

Description

The goal of this package is to ease the testing of my college football prediction points prediction model. The package will be built off the CFB Stats data.

Use

I expect the structure of the package to be small functions that can be piped together:

library(MELLS)
library(magrittr)

years <- 2005:2014
plays <- readin("play", years)
teams <- readin("team", years)
runs <- readin("rush", years)
pass <- readin("pass", years)
drives <- readin("drive", years)
games <- readin("game", years)
game_info <- readin("team-game-statistics", years)
conf <- readin("conference", years)

epa_model <- expected_points_build(plays[plays$Year != 2014, ], drives[drives$Year != 2014, ])
fixed_games <- fix_games(games)
drives <- fix_drives(fixed_games, drives)
model_plays <- combine_run_pass(runs, pass, fixed_games) %>% remove_garbage %>% fix_fcs(teams, conf) %>% add_epa(epa_model)
model_values <- generate_preseason_mlm(run_plays = model_plays[["run_info"]], pass_plays = model_plays[["pass_info"]]) %>% add_preseason(run_plays = model_plays[["run_info"]], pass_plays = model_plays[["pass_info"]], drives = drives, preseason_vals = .)
weekly_values <- weekly_values_mlm(model_runs = model_values[["run_data"]], model_pass = model_values[["pass_data"]], model_drives = model_values[["drives_data"]])

This package will also contain some model testing functions and validation results.
