Part II of our route study looks at 2016 quarterbacks. Who threw the deepest digs and the shortest curl routes? Who was crazy enough to throw 42 go routes and 28 fades? We finally have data to answer these questions.
Our first part of a study on DVOA by route types focuses on receivers. Which players were the most valuable on digs, slants, curls, and nine other routes? Also: is the WR screen bad for offense? And is Tavon Austin good at anything?
