Run Break Down Percentage

- In this one we break the runs into groups, negative, zero, short (runs that won't reach a 1st down if run 3 times), average (runs that will get a 1st down if run 3 times), long, and breakaway. So for example if Moreno has 5 runs between 4-6 yards out of 20 runs, that means 20% of his runs went for that distance. This allows us to compare not just lengths but how often they were achieved, that way we can see who is the "home-run threat" or who may be the most reliable to not get negative yards.

Yards After Contact (YAC)

- In this one we break how each RB does after contact. We take their yards after 1st contact and divide by it by attempts and we can see average yards after 1st contact, that way we are able to see how much of a backs yardage comes after that 1st hit. A back that doesn't go down easily will be shown here. We next look how much of their yardage comes after contact. So let's take a fictional Moreno, he averages 4.2 yards per carry and 2.1 of that is yards after contact per attempt, so 50% of his yards come after contact. But if we look at a fictional Montee who averages 4.0 yards per carry and 1.0 yards after contact per attempt, only 25% of his yards come after contact. Finally we look at the average distance past the line of scrimmage a player is hit, using this we can see a few things like how well the offensive line is blocking as well as their speed to hit the hole if one opens. So if a backs average hit distance is 1.5 yards, he is hit on average 1.5 yards past the line of scrimmage.
