RB Attempts and Touches Week 8

By John Bush

RB Attempts and Touches Week 8

RB Attempts and Touches Week 8 report give s view of the RBs activity to this point in the season. The raw numbers by week are present as well as the speed based metric of Attempts and Touches per minute. I also include a ranking system based on an RBs rush vs pass ratio as annotated by a Player’s Bias. This metric allows a view of a players balance level and their fantasy production.

Compare and contrast the data and envision this week’s game scripts by using all your resources including this one.

TEAM Level Average Rushing Attempts, Weekly Metrics, and DIFFs

The table below starts this report out with rushing attempts per week average as well as the Seasonal DIFF metric of Last 4 minus Early 4.

The DIFF metric calculates the difference of a team’s last four games vs first 4. I look for trends of increases or decreases. Using RBs in teams that are using the RB more has to be a positive move in fantasy football.

These teams metrics were sorted by high to low Average of Rushing Attempts. The top rushing attempts teams (SEA, LAR, WAS, HOU, SF, NE, CLE, NYJ, and DEN) were colorized by green while the bottom teams (CIN, GB, ARI, TB, MIN, CAR, JAX, and NYG) were stained by red coloring. NYG needs to unleash Barkley! 

The top teams in blue are high rushing teams vs the low rushing teams in red colorization within each week as well. 

I also included the team level of these following metrics. I use these metrics to refine the Team View. 

  • Rush Yards
  • Receptions
  • Reception Yards
  • Fantasy Points

Examples of Deeper Analysis

SEA Great Rushing but Poor RB Receptions! That would see to be a concern in PPR vs STD!

NE is High in Both Rushing and RB Receptions. Sweet RBs in PPRs! 

SEA vs NE represent the extremes! Use this table for deeper Team analysis. 

RB Attempts and Touches Week 8 Slide1


Seasonal Changes vs Team Average of Attempts. 

As we move into the 3rd quarter of our Fantasy season, these metrics highlight the improving Rushing Teams vs their Rushing Productions. Move to High Rushing Improving teams. Trade away from declining Rushing and Low Attempt Teams.

  1. TOPs:              SEA, HOU, SF, NYJ, IND, and NO
  2. Bottoms:        NYG, JAX, CAR, GB, and OAK!

Team RB Pass vs Run Metrics

This table is sorted by the Pass vs Rushing % from High to Low. Green Teams have RBs that as strong in RB passing vs Red Teams have rushing type RBs. PPR vs STD is certainly in the mix by using these metrics.

NYG and JAX are the top PPR RB types followed by CHI, NO, NE, and LAC!

A Plot of Team Fantasy Points from RBs by Team (High to Low)

This plot is sorted from high FP to Low FP Teams. It allows a simple focus of Rush vs Receptions. Use to further characterize each team. Move to high scoring teams and away for lower scoring teams.
