2018 TEAM EFFICIENCY RATINGS

Regular season totals, through Week 2

Revised as of 9/18/2018

These are the Football Outsiders team efficiency ratings for 2018, measured by our proprietary Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) system that breaks down every single NFL play and compares a team's performance to a league baseline based on situation in order to determine value over average. (Explained further here.)

OFFENSE and DEFENSE DVOA are adjusted to consider all fumbles, kept or lost, as equal value. (There are no opponent adjustments until after Week 4.) SPECIAL TEAMS DVOA is adjusted for type of stadium (warm, cold, dome, Denver) and week of season.

DAVE is a formula which combines our preseason projection with current DVOA to get a more accurate forecast of how a team will play the rest of the season. Right now, the preseason projection makes up 80 percent of DAVE.

As always, positive numbers represent more points so DEFENSE is better when it is NEGATIVE.
