WIDE RECEIVERS 2018

Regular season totals, playoffs not included

Revised as of 9/8/2019

Wide receivers are ranked according to DYAR, orDefense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement. This gives the value of theperformance on plays where this WR caught the ball, compared to replacement level, adjusted for situationand opponent and then translated into yardage. DYAR(and its cousin, YAR, which isn't adjusted based on opponent) is further explained here.

The other statistic givenis DVOA, or Defense-adjusted Value Over Average. This number representsvalue, per play, over an average WR in the same gamesituations. The more positive the DVOA rating, the better the player'sperformance. DVOA (and its cousin, VOA, which isn't adjusted based onopponent) is further explainedhere.

The simple version: DYAR means a wide receiver with more total value. DVOA means a wide receiver with more value per play.

Effective Yards, listed in red, translate DVOA into a yards perattempt figure. This provides an easy comparison: in general, playerswith more Effective Yards than standard yards played better than standardstats would otherwise indicate, while players with fewer Effective Yardsthan standard yards played worse than standard stats would otherwiseindicate. Effective Yards are not the best way to measure total valuebecause they are more dependent on usage than DYAR.

DYAR and DVOA include all passes intended for the receiver, both complete and incomplete. Catch Rate represents the percentage of passes to this receiver completed. This is a reference to incomplete passes, not dropped passes: dropped passes are not specified in publicly available play-by-play, and unfortunately we cannot yet correct for this.

  • We cannot yet fully separate the performance of a receiver from the performance of his quarterback. Be aware that one will affect the other.
  • These statistics measure only passes thrown to a receiver, not performance on plays when he is not thrown the ball, such as blocking and drawing double teams.
  • All fumbles are considered equal, whether recovered by the offense or defense.
  • DPI lists the number of plays and yards where the receiver drewDefensive Pass Interference. These plays are incorporated into DVOA and DYAR,but are not included in the totals for Passes or Yards.

Clicking on a player's name will bring you to his FO player page with advanced stats through the most recent season.
