Advanced Targets – Week 5 Wrap

Alshon JefferyAdvanced Targets goes behind the scenes and provides snap and pass route splits in addition to target numbers. Yards per route (YPRR), targets per snap (TA/SN), targets per route (TA/PR), and pass routes per snap (PR/SN) are exclusive PFF metrics that will help inform your start/sit, waiver wire, and trade decisions in a way no other service can.

Over the last couple of weeks the advanced pass route data helped us recommend rookies like Robert Woods, Keenan Allen, and Terrance Williams. The route data won’t always be so oracular in nature, but the value in locating an impending breakout one week ahead of the crowd is inestimable. This week we’ll begin with pass route rates in order to see which players might be good buy and sell candidates based on team strategy.

    Jeffery played at S Carolina, and Spurrier is a pass first offensive coach. Georgia and ‘Bama emphasize the run game more, which is the only reason Green and Jones were less productive. Further, since arriving in the NFL, Green and Jones have proven they were the better players.
