Jahnke: 32 Fantasy Football Stats To Know

Week 2 has come and gone with plenty of impressive offensive performances. Some players have exceeded expectations and are off to excellent starts. Others are playing so well that their numbers will certainly come down to Earth. Digging into advanced stats will help us know what to expect from all of the players on our fake teams going forward.

While preparing my fantasy football rankings each week, I come across statistics and trends worth monitoring. The following are 32 interesting stats — one for each NFL team — that helped inform my Week 3 rankings. Several can be found in premium stats as well as the PFF fantasy stats. (These numbers do not account for the Thursday night Dolphins-Jaguars game.)

Arizona Cardinals Kyler Murray’s 158 rushing yards lead all quarterbacks. He’s currently on pace for more rushing yards than 2019 Lamar Jackson.

Atlanta FalconsThe Falcons have been one of the most pass-happy teams on first down and have two of the top four receivers in first down receiving yards: Julio Jones (127 yards, second) and Calvin Ridley (115, fourth).

Baltimore Ravens Mark Andrews has played in 29 of a possible 50 snaps in 11 personnel. That’s 58%, which is a 20 percentage point increase from last season But 32 tight ends have played more 11 personnel snaps than Andrews this season. Not playing as much as others is limiting his potential value.

Buffalo Bills Josh Allen is the only quarterback with 300-yard games in both Week 1 and Week 2. He didn't have a single 300-yard game last season. He’s already paying off for those who drafted him.
