Rushing Attempts Per Minute Week 5

Rushing Attempts Per Minute Week 5 presents material to enhance your view of the league’s rushing attempts by team and players for the first 4 weeks. 


League “Snap-Shot” Team Rushing Atts vs Passing Atts


The data shown in the Figure 1 Table, presents a data normalized view of the rushing vs passing attempts from each team! Given the league’s emphasis on passing, the data was sorted by high to low of the league teams passing levels. GB is the top in passing attempts while LAC is the bottom team in passing attempts within the first 4 weeks of play. 

Figure 1. Team’s Normalized Rushing vs Passing Ranking

The averages for run vs pass attempts are shown at the bottom of figure 1. These numbers were subtracted for the normalized numbers to give a landscape view of each teams relative R to P attempts and are shown in Figure 2.

I present the area graph of the data in Figure 2. I am a visual learner and I think this way of “seeing” the league is the best way for my readers. PPR leagues will need more players from the Passing Teams and Non_PPR leagues use players for the Rushing Team! Can also be used to illustrate which teams are balanced vs shew!

Can also be used to illustrate which teams are balanced vs shew! GB Pass Shewed

GB Pass Shewed and LAC running Skewed! ATL and Oak have been very balanced in rushing and passing attempts. 

NOTE- Attempts do not imply fantasy points necessarily! They are an indication but a team must have the players to carry through for success!

How concentrated are the rushing attempts per team?. The data in Figures 4 and 5 highlights these player counts. Teams with a concentration of rushing if an injury can see an instant RB by Committee form!  Gurley on the LAR for example! 

Teams that have a high concentration of rushing on one player. If an injury occurs we can see an instant RB by Committee form!  Gurley on the LAR for example! 

Teams with a spread out RB crew can deal with injury much better!

Rushing Attempts Weekly by Team and Players

The following gives you a color-coded numbers of rushing attempts per week as well as % change form week 3 to 4!  Use this data for DFS and Drop/Adds this week! Note that week 4 had the highest number of rushing attempts across the league so far! (see the last table in this series)

Average of League Scaled Rushing Attempts per Minute of Offensive Play.

The speeds of teams do vary and simple attempts per game stat may not reflect a truth needed to understand a team’s rushing game! The next series of the tables gives color-coded Scaled ATT/Min for rushing and the 4-week average!

Rushing Attempts Per Minute vs the League Average for Scale

How good is a running back in terms of rushing attempts per minute? 

The next data tables present information to answer that question!

I have included a visual Area Graph to codify the data’s conclusions. I have added blue dashed lines to denote the current player tiers that exist. Gurley (54.9)  is at the top and Perkins (0.1) the bottom of the “good” RBs. (Green Color Above Average).

(Attempts still do not equal scores, however!) 

Having drafted Dalvin Cook, I see that he really was a great player and is missed! Next year I guess!
