The benefits are that teams can select the best players available based on computer models based and statistical analysis.

When the coaching staff or the front office watches a game film, data can be gathered from the film that can be fed to a computer for machine learning to take place.

The calculations can tell owners what kinds of players to recruit based upon data, the culture fit of their organization, and the required talent of the team. Using stats simplifies the selection of players because it assesses their skills in real-time, and the computer learns to make predictions based on that skill set.
