Field Breakdown

Quarterbacks and receivers naturally have favorite parts of the field. Some quarterbacks like throwing to the right side and some receivers feel more confident lining up on the left side. At Pro Football Focus, we can detail out the performance of both a QB and WR based on the location of the field. You’ll be able to see the areas of the field a WR is most dangerous and where a QB might be must vulnerable.

Signature Stats

QB Rating

PFF has built a series of exclusive metrics for each and every position group called Signature Stats. As an example, QB Rating goes a step further than the basic QB rating. Ours takes into account drops, throw aways and spikes, along with the work a receiver does after the catch. This wraps up into a much more accurate picture of the impact a QB really has on the game.

Yards Per Route Run

What are the best metrics to indicate production for wide receivers? Our signature stats has a metric you can’t find anywhere else. Yards per Route Run (YPRR) shows the yards a receiver picks up on a per route basis. It takes into account the number of snaps a player went out for a pass, providing a better indicator of production than Yards per Reception or even Yards per Target.

Fantasy Football

Average Depth of Target for Receivers

For Fantasy Football, we have created a number of proprietary metrics that can only be powered by PFF. aDOT (Average Depth of Target for Receivers), shows where players are on the field when they are targeted. More predictive than yards per catch and it enables you to identify big play receivers downfield. Below is a ranked list of the 2016 receivers by aDOT.

Points per Opportunity

Another great Fantasy Football metric is PPO (Points per Opportunity). This shows how effective a player is as a fantasy scorer on a per opportunity basis. Did a team’s first or second string RB get hurt? If the third string guy has a high PPO, but hasn’t received a lot of reps, he’s worth considering. This metric can really help point you in the right direction in terms of roster moves.
