2012 Fantasy Football: Week 14 Inside the Numbers

Print Friendly

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson became the first quarterback out of ten to throw 30 passes against Chicago without having any picked off.  He ran away with the most DYAR last week.  He has five straight multi-touchdown games and only two turnovers in that stretch.


Golden Tate broke four tackles.  He now has eleven on the season, a strong number for a wide receiver.


Peyton Manning leads the league in games with a QBR over 90.  He has seven, including Thursday night’s effort.


Atlanta gained 122 of their 126 rushing yards against New Orleans between the tackles.


Colin Kaepernick did not lead many scoring drives but he had an adjusted accuracy rate of 85.7%.  He did not attempt any passes 20+ yards downfield.  San Francisco faces Miami next, and the Dolphins allow the second highest QBR on play outside the pocket.


Chad Henne had a 114.6 rating when throwing to Cecil Shorts.  The Mount Union product scored for the fourth consecutive game.


Arizona quarterbacks have completed just 48.7% of passes aimed at Larry Fitzgerald.  Going out on a limb here, but that is not Larry’s fault.


Chris Givens caught eleven passes on thirteen targets, beating six different defensive backs.  He is a great sleeper for Week 14.


All three of Jake Locker’s interceptions were on deflected passes.


In 2011 Ray Rice caused a missed tackle on 5.4% of his rushing attempts.  This year he increased the rate to 8.1%.


Reggie Wayne increased his yards per route run from 1.66 to 2.11 with Andrew Luck at quarterback instead of 2011’s flotsam and jetsam.


DeSean Jackson is not making fantasy players happy but he is playing better this year.  He slashed his drops from nine to one so far while being more elusive.


Mike Williams’ deep route rate by year:  37.5%, 22.6%, 37.6%.  Going downfield more often clearly agrees with him.


Rob Gronkowski was crushing all other tight ends in receiving productivity.  He led with 2.42 yards per route run.  The also injured Fred Davis is second with 1.96.  The difference between second and tenth is only 0.20 yards.


Jimmy Graham’s drop rate has increased significantly, from 5.8% to 14.5%.


Frank Gore (37) is behind only Adrian Peterson on runs of 10+ yards.  Bryce Brown has sixteen in roughly 37.5% of Gore’s carries.


Mario Manningham saw three red zone targets.
