Fun With Advanced Stats (05/25 Fantasy Football Podcast)

• 68 min

Hopefully you'll learn a lot today about some new metrics and which players stand out in certain advanced stats. We're joined by SportsLine's Jacob Gibbs to discuss how much advanced stats actually help our Fantasy evaluations (4:00) and the ones we rely on most (5:30) ... We update the "Best Shape of His Life" list and then Jacob dives into advanced stats on rookie wide receivers (10:0). He looked at which incoming rookies ran the types of routes you'll see a lot of in the NFL. Which players ran them efficiently and which ones struggled? Treylon Burks and George Pickens were among the standouts ... News and notes (19:15) focused mostly on the Cardinals signing Darrel Williams. Then let's get back to our advanced stats! We cover intended air yards per pass attempt (25:50), off-target pass percentage (31:00), average depth of target (41:00), per route efficiency (49:30) and the RBs who are best at avoiding and breaking tackles (52:10). Included among the advanced stat standouts are Joe Burrow, Javonte Williams and Tony Pollard ...
