Rushing Attempts Per Minute Week 6
Rushing Attempts Per Minute Week 6 presents material to enhance your view of the each Team’s rushing attempts by team and players for the first 5 weeks.
Total Attempts for the TEAM by Weeks 1 to 5
The tops were in raw attempts were JAC (157) and BAL (143). Note the data is better seen normalized by a per game basis. See the following figures!
League “Snap-Shot” Team Rushing ATTs vs Passing ATTs
I present the current rushing attempts per game for each team! The data shown in the Figure 1 Table, presents a data normalized view of the rushing vs passing attempts per game from each team!

Given the league’s emphasis on passing, the data was sorted by high to low of the league teams passing levels.
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 (SKEW) and are shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2. Rushing vs Passing Attempts Scaled to the Average of the league with Team Skew to Passing
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 skewed! SF Very Pass Skewed for example vs TB which is very Run Skewed!
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 and Eliot in DAL!

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

Rushing Attempts Weekly by Team and Players
The following gives you a color-coded numbers of rushing attempts per week as well as % change from the last two weeks of play! Use this data for DFS and Drop/Adds this week!
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 5-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! Nice Data from Aaron Jones in GB!
I have included a visual Area Graph to codify the data’s conclusions. You can see Tiers of the top RBs. Fournette (84.7) Top and Martin (45.95) Bottom of Good Players! (Green Color Above Average).
(Attempts still do not equal scores, however!)
