Dynasty: Killer Stat App for College Receivers


*Michael Crabtree had a high TD rate as a college receiver and that promise is now showing. 

If you’re like me, your fantasy football fanaticism spread through your being like a Mongolian horde until you became so obsessed with spotting breakout players that you had memorized Leonard Hankerson’s college stats.  I’m not saying I’m proud of this, I’m just acknowledging the truth.

The problem with being a junkie (we’ve now moved on from the horde analogy) is that you need a bigger and bigger fix to serve your addiction.  I love the Play Finder at Sports Reference, but sometimes I’m not interested in counting or volume stats and instead I want efficiency stats.  So I put together a quick app that will let you look at a few efficiency stats for college receivers and also let you filter plays by down, distance, yards to the end zone, and also the opponent’s defensive quality.

Want to know which receiver was the most efficient on 3rd down vs. top 25 defenses?  No problem.  Want to know which receiver was the most efficient in the red zone?  Done.

A few notes on the app below:

The data set goes back to the 2005 season.

YPT = Yards per Target

PCT_YTG = Yards/Target divided by the Yards to Go.  So if a receiver picks up 9 yards on average in 10 yards to go scenarios, you can see that.

TDRT = Touchdowns/Targets

Defensive Quality is a standardized measure that includes all defenses and all seasons.  Alabama 2012 was the highest rated defense in the data set when adjusted for opponent quality.  So they rate as 100. 

There is an input for target minimum because if you sort by an efficiency stat, often the leaders will be players that maybe just caught a single pass.  So you can set the minimum targets depending on what you’re looking for.
