MVP Visualization is probably a terrible name for this fun tool. I built after the regular season ended a couple years ago so I could avoid writing an All-AFA Team write up because, as long time readers know, I'd much rather be making models and crunching numbers than writing about making models and crunching numbers. The MVP Viz plots the top players at each position according to their cumulative Win Probability Added and Expected Points Added. The purpose was to identify the players who truly had the biggest impact on their team's outcomes. Players to the upper right have the biggest impacts. The players above the diagonal line have more WPA (game impact) than we'd expect given their EPA (score impact), meaning they tended to make more high-leverage or 'clutch' plays. Players below the diagonal had more of their production during low-leverage situations, commonly known as trash time.
