Start your Bills IDPs this week
Unlike offensive statistics, tackles aren’t considered official in the NFL. Consequently, we see a lot of variation across the league in how home stats crews record tackles.
Knowing the tendencies of each home crew can provide a significant advantage in IDP leagues. So each week during the regular season, I’m going to chart the tackles awarded and discuss the insights we gain from this data.
While these numbers aren’t the be all, end all, they do provide you with a strong sense of what to expect from each game this week. If you’re between two players in your starting lineup, use this chart to break the tie.
