FANTASY FOOTBALL ARTICLES

For Every "X"
David Dorey
March 5, 2008

We all know what the total statistics were from last year. The players that helped us win championships. The others that did not pull their weight. But total statistics reflect what happened given the amount of work that each player received during the course of the season. An interesting but hidden statistic is how effective were they each time they touched the ball? You know, for every "X" times that they carried or passed or received, how often did good or bad things happen?

Considering only the players that produced fantasy relevant numbers last year, the top tens for what happened per play in the NFL last year are:

 

For every sack, how many passes thrown?
For every interception, how many passes thrown?
