Identify Weekly Change at the Team, Positional and Player Levels

The Snap Report can be a positive indicator because it’s easier for players to score more when given the opportunity.

Conversely, the weekly ‘Snap Report’ can identify when players fall out of favor or when game flow or player movement occurs due to injuries.

It’s useful to compare the weekly snap leaders to rushing attempt leaders and target leaders to get a feel for how a player is used for fantasy football purposes. See other reports

Team Level Snaps Per Minute

This is a data “Snapshot” of each teams activities and speed of play. The Avg Team Snaps/Minute give insight into the team’s speed. A highly involved player on a fast team is worth knowing!

SF, CLE, ARI, MIN, LAC, NYG,  NE, HOU, and TB are the Fastest NFL teams through week 5. Again key players in those teams are being given more opportunity.

The slowest teams CAR, OAK, KC, PHI, BAL, and NYJ certainly have key players but they must be more efficient to overcome the slow team pace.

Players from slower teams that are highly ranked may be worth more than thought. Dynasty players take note here!
