Sig Stats: First Downs & Touchdowns — TEs

We collect a lot of data at Pro Football Focus — so much so that we’re continually working to put it together and bring you all the unique Signature Stats out there.

But fear not because we’re getting our collective heads around them now, and with that in mind we’re bringing you a new collection of signature stats that deal with the quality of catches — you know, the ones that go for either a first down or touchdown.

Check out the table below that breaks down which tight ends in 2012 had the most combined first downs and touchdowns. Once done with this, click over to see how we’ve taken it even further by looking at the most as a percentage of their targets, and the most as a percentage of the routes they ran.

Now let’s look at who picked up the most first downs or touchdowns per route run.

    Mr. Elsayed,
    I left this query in the free agency blog, but perhaps it is more appropriate here.

    i am having an ongoing violent debate with my co-worker at the ice cream factory about the trade value of one marcedes lewis te jacksonville.

    hence, i ask you:
    under the hypothetical situation, that marcedes lewis would be currently offered for trade by the jacksonville jaguars, what would his trade value be in terms of draft selections in 2013?

    in so far as i will refer my co-worker to your response, if you could be as straightforward and lucid as possible in your opinion, leaving no potential ambiguities that could thereinafter be extrapolated into more hermeneutic speculation which would only perpetuate the argument between myself and my co-worker instead of ending it.

    best regards,
    dougie sceptre
