The Stealing Signals tool was inspired by Ben Gretch’s wildly popular article “Stealing Signals” which debuted on Rotoviz and is used by Ben in his weekly writing. It’s now one of the most respected pieces in the fantasy industry, a must read, and can be found in Ben’s Stealing Signals newsletter which is available on Substack. Stealing Signals highlights the Signal and the Noise from every game, every weekend, and can be subscribed to here!
aDOT — Average Depth of Target
AYPRR — Air Yards Per Route Run
GZ Touches (Green Zone) — Touches occurring inside the opponent’s 10-yard line.
HVT (High-Value Touches) — Green zone touches plus receptions. Touchdown potential and pass-catching upside are the keys to RB upside in PPR, while rush attempts outside scoring range are far lower in fantasy value.
LVT (Low-Value Touches) — Rushing attempts occurring outside of the green zone.
RACR (Receiver Air Conversion Ratio) — Also created by Hermsmeyer, RACR is calculated as total receiving yards divided by total air yards. Similar to yards per reception or yards per target, but per air yard instead.
TPRR — Targets Per Route Run
TRAP (Trivial Rush Attempt Percentage) — For running backs, the percentage of all touches that are not High-Value Touches. A higher TRAP means a high percentage of low-value rush attempts outside scoring range, which is worse for fantasy production.
WOPR (Weighted Opportunity Rating) — A metric created by Josh Hermsmeyer which balances team share of targets and team share of air yards. Because a player’s WOPR is a share of his team’s overall opportunity, it’s important to consider team volume as additional context.
wTPRR – TPRR but with air yards layered in. For more information, check out this post.
YPRR — Yards Per Route Run
YPT — Yards Per Target
This tool will be updated weekly on Wednesday afternoon/evening when complete charting data becomes available.
