While it was a tough loss to the San Diego Chargers, it doesn’t stop the march of the season or the collection of data so the pages have been updated:
– Broncos defensive line pass rushing productivity
– Broncos running back data including yards after contact, negative runs and long runs
– Broncos wide receivers, tight ends and running backs receiving data which includes yards per target, touchdown percentage and the passer rating when targeting each player
Enjoy! I’ll be reviewing more of the run game this week than normal since it’s a longer week and the longest run of the week was 6 yards. I’ll give some foreshadowing, the offensive line doesn’t look good. I’m also hoping to review the safety play as well if time permits.
*Updated With Week 17’s Data*
This table includes the rank among the players peers. Now Pass Rushing Productivity (PRP) is created by taking total pressures divided by total pass rushing snaps to get a percentage. An example is that if Phillips has 10 pressures on 97 snaps meaning he got pressure on 10.31% of his snaps. Weighted PRP on the other hand takes in the factor that whiles pressures, hits and forced holds are valuable, sacks are worth more. The value for a sack is 1.2, hit is .8 and pressure is .7 while a holding penalty is worth .6. This may seem arbitrary but it’s created by look at how many yards are lost and completion percentage going down for each. The rankings listed for total pressures and PRP is based on their position so defensive ends will be compared to defensive ends and defensive tackles will be compared to defensive tackles. If a player plays both positions, they are labeled by the position they play most often.
I’ve also include each players time to sack if they have any sacks along with how many of their sacks came when they were either unblocked or untouched.
