Fantasy football stats can be position-specific, but also some can be universal. Fantasy points per snap are fairly universal. It is broken down per snap, where it can showcase who is making the most with their snaps, but also pointing out who needs that volume on the field to produce what they are producing. The same can be said for fantasy points per touch. Overall stats like fantasy points per game and overall fantasy points is a great overview of who is producing, and compare them to other players.
Looking into quarterback stats, volume is still what is at the highest importance. However, efficiency can be weighted higher for quarterbacks that don’t throw at a high rate. For example, Russell Wilson has been a top fantasy quarterback but is not someone who throws at a high rate in comparison to some of the other quarterbacks. This makes his efficiency stats a little bit more important. Looking at stats like yards per completion and yards per attempt is important, as it usually points out some of the better efficiency quarterbacks. Completion percentage is another one where a name like Wilson is going to have to make the most of his throws. Rushing stats can go along with these quarterbacks as well, if they don’t throw that often, they could add a few fantasy points on the ground to make up for the difference.
Volume is going to be looked at through attempts per game. Attempts per game can be generated by an offensive scheme, or also be because they are not a very good team and are constantly trailing. There is fantasy value within bad teams, as a team like the Bengals and Dolphins over the last few years have had some fantasy worthy names within their passing offenses. As mentioned above rushing fantasy stats can be looked at as a way to add to a fantasy quarterbacks upside or floor. Josh Allen is a better fantasy quarterback than real-life quarterback. He is not the most efficient in the passing game, but he gets yards and touchdowns on the ground to help fill in the gaps.
Volume is very important for the rest of the positions, especially running backs. The years of each team having a bell-cow back are over and they likely will not be returning. Now there are still some backs who do see a ton of touches per game and they generally are the ones we are drafting high and see at the top of scoring charts each week and at the end of the season. Looking through the finishing rankings each year, and before the season, it is largely based on touches. A running back getting 20-25 touches per game is of course going to have the chance to score more fantasy points than a running back that is seeing 10-15 touches per game.
We also need to look at stats in the receiving department, as running backs also have been more versatile in comparison to recent years. They play a role in the passing game now, and some may earn their value solely through receiving stats. James White for the Patriots is a perfect example of someone who has decent fantasy value, yet also doesn’t do much on the ground. and receptions are a good area to find where this production goes. You can also view the percentage of the number of targets a running back gets in comparison to his teammates.
Efficiency stats are looked at as yards per catch and yards per carry. We can also breakdown what they are doing with fantasy points per touch and snap. But if a back isn’t getting a ton of touches, but still enough to remain viable, efficiency is going to matter a bit more. If he is running for five yards per carry on ten touches per game, then his fantasy worth is a bit higher. A running back could also be used more in the red zone and his touchdown rate becomes higher because of that. There are a lot of factors that go into a smaller workload and how many quality fantasy plays they become.
Just like the other positions, we will be checking to see who is getting the most targets. What rushing attempts are to running backs are what targets are to wide receivers and tight ends. The higher the volume of rushing attempts per game for these positions is huge. We will see the same in the rankings and projections each week where targets are correlated with fantasy production. A team’s top wideout is usually going to see the most targets per game, and on occasion that can be a tight end as well. Looking into red zone targets is a key aspect of fantasy football too. Teams will have popular targets in the red zone, which correlates with their touchdown production. It is another volume stat to keep in mind.
Now if a receiver or tight end is not getting a ton of targets, but still find themselves around 4-6 per game. There is a chance they are big-play home-run threats or are strong PPR plays because they catch everything. DeSean Jackson for years was a name who could hit on one play and be a huge fantasy point guy just with the deep ball. Even if a guy isn’t efficient, his production could be tied to gaining 20 yards a catch or the touchdown department. As you get down in the rankings and projections weekly the targets tend to drop off.
targets and attempts can always change throughout the year with injury and depth chart changes. This is something to note. Looking over the last three or last five can tell a story, but you will need to find some reasoning behind it. If a WR4 is getting seven targets a game over the last three is it because someone is injured? Or has he jumped into a bigger role on the team? Keeping track of target and attempt trends is very important.
Team Defense Stats
The most important stats for team defense and special teams in fantasy is going to be turnovers and . Now if your scoring format also calculates in yards and points allowed too, which points allowed is the more standard format, then we need to look there as well. However, teams that generate a lot of turnovers and sacks can help negate the fact they give up 25 points per game. Some defenses might be better real-life defenses in comparison to fantasy defenses. This has a lot to do with them not being able to get to the quarterback or forcing turnovers. Some may call them a bend don’t break defense too. Because turnovers and sacks are tougher to project, we can take more into account what the matchup brings and how an opposing offensive line looks.
Like the other positions, volume is going to be crucial for a kicker. A kicker may only make 75% of his kicks, but if he ranks top five in volume, the fantasy points will still be there. If a kicker doesn’t have a ton of volume and makes 90% of his kicks, that production might be less. Volume can depend on a few things, but it usually correlates with how good the offenses are and if they can move the ball in big chunks. Getting into opponent’s territories are huge for fantasy kickers. Extra points help, and it can give a nice extra bump to a kicker, but it is not as important as it is true field goal volume. The one thing we can note about efficiency is that if a kicker isn’t hitting his mark, then his job becomes a bit riskier.
If you are playing in an IDP league, you will be on the lookout for defensive player stats. Knowing your scoring is important, but for the most part, a standard IDP league is going to record fantasy points for touchdowns, sacks, tackles, forced fumbles, pass deflections, interceptions, and fumble recoveries. These are all stats that you will need to track, but the turnover stats are always going to be fluky on a year to year basis. Tackles and sacks can be a bit more consistent. Being on the field is always a big help for generating fantasy points as a defensive player. On occasion, players can only play two downs or also come in for just a third-down play. Players that are on the field for more snaps should be what you are after.
Predicting turnovers is tough, but some have a nose for the ball more than others. Checking in on who is generating the most sacks and tackles will be in more opportunities to record these numbers. The same goes for just being on the field.
Fantasy Football Stats FAQ
Reading football stats is about breaking down each position and finding what stats equate volume, efficiency, and production. For example targets and attempts are volume stats. Yards per attempt or carry is an efficiency stat, while yards and touchdowns are production stats.
A CSV format or file can be downloaded or can be copied over for your own personal use. This can help you build something of your own, or help you keep everything in one spot for offline use. Look in the right corner of the page.
Because volume correlates highly with fantasy production, stats like targets, pass attempts, and rush attempts should be the ones to know. Production generally will follow those who have high volume. It is also key to know who is getting volume in the red zone.
In addition to volume stats like targets and rush attempts, you can factor in efficiency a bit more with receptions. Because it is a point per reception scoring format, this stat is weighted higher. Still weight in with volume stats.
Projecting fantasy football stats is about putting together a module that brings in a mix of volume and efficiency to predict overall production. Adding in factors like strength of schedule, floor/upside, and personal input can help you get to those stats that you want.
What Is PPR Scoring?
A fantasy football scoring format that makes receptions equal one fantasy point. This has become a popular scoring format over recent years, as it will open up the player pool to include more fantasy viable players such as receiving backs and slot wide receivers.
What Is Half-PPR Scoring?
A fantasy football scoring format that makes receptions equal half of a fantasy point. Receptions are weighted just a little bit less in this format, but slot wide receivers and pass-catching backs still have some strong value. It doesn’t completely negate them like standard scoring.
What Is Standard Scoring?
A fantasy football scoring format that records fantasy points just for yards and touchdowns, and not receptions like Half-PPR and PPR. Standard scoring is about as simple as you can make it, where receptions do not have any worth here.

Air Yards: 2021 NFL Stats For Fantasy Football
What are Air Yards?
Air Yards data has become one of the most important tools for fantasy football players in recent years — but what exactly are ‘Air Yards’?
Air Yards are simply a measure of how many yards the football travels in the air, from the line of scrimmage, regardless of whether the pass was completed.
So if the ball is snapped at the 50 yard line and the receiver is at the 40 yard line when the ball arrives, that’s 10 Air Yards — even if the pass was incomplete.
Why Air Yards matter for fantasy football
Air Yards have a strong correlation with actual yards. For example, among WRs in 2020, Air Yards were correlated with actual receiving yards with a linear r-squared over 0.85.
In simple terms, this means that Air Yards alone do a very, very good job of representing actual yards gained. And you can use this to your advantage to win in fantasy football.
But why not just look at actual yards gained, if that’s the stat we really care about? That’s where Air Yards becomes so important.
Knowing that Air Yards is a fantastic proxy for actual yards, we can reasonably predict players for a “breakout” if their Air Yard production is not resulting in actual yard production. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, but Air Yards are a tremendous guide. You can use this information to buy low on players that your league mates have given up on.
What is the FTN Air Yards tool?
The FTN Air Yards tool is packed with all of the tech and data you need to win your fantasy football league. The tool is customizable, letting you filter by season, week, player, position, team, stat minimums (such as targets, receptions, yards, etc.) and more.
The tool features all of the stats you need and none of the ones you don’t, including:
- Receiving Yards
- Air Yards
- Average Depth of Target (aDOT)
- Yards After Catch or Reception (YAC)
- Touchdowns (TDs)
- RACR, which is a ratio that divides receiving yards by Air Yards
- Team Air Yard Market Share, which represents the percentage of a team’s total Air Yards that went to each player on that team (e.g. 100 out of 1,000 is 10%)
- Team Target Market Share, which represents the percentage of a team’s total targets that went to each player on that team (e.g. 50 out of 500 is 10%)
- WOPR, a weighted averaged incorporating each players’ share of Air Yard market share and target market share
- Total fantasy points scored (PPR)

2018 Patrick Mahomes - Barely in his second season, Patrick Mahomes delivered a fantasy goldmine of points. He had 429 fantasy points and threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 total passing touchdowns. Mahomes also added on some rushing production and two rushing scores. He surpassed all other players in fantasy points for an entire season.
2006 LaDainian Tomlinson - We often have seen more quarterbacks post the bigger fantasy numbers in a season, but Tomlinson put up 425 fantasy points back in 2006. He ripped off 1,815 rushing yards and 508 receiving yards. He had 31 total touchdowns, with 28 of them coming on the ground. Tomlinson put together the best fantasy season of any running back, and this is a mark that will likely be untouched.
2003 Priest Holmes - Staying with running backs, Priest Holmes had an excellent fantasy campaign in 2003 with the Kansas City Chiefs. He rushed for 2,110 yards and had 27 rushing touchdowns. Holmes also had over 600 receiving yards but didn’t have a receiving touchdown. As if it mattered.
2019 Lamar Jackson - Another quarterback in his second year broke out and posted one of the top fantasy seasons of all-time. Kamar Jackson had over 1,200 yards on the ground, and over 3,000 yards passing. He combined for 43 total touchdowns.
2013 Peyton Manning - Fresh off neck surgery and in a new city, Peyton Manning delivered fantasy gold. He had over 400 fantasy points,. He threw for over 5,000 yards and had 55 passing touchdowns. This is coming off a year he threw for 37 and threw for 39 the year after. Manning’s stretch in Denver was excellent for fantasy production.
2005 Shaun Alexander - Running backs in the early 2000s were on another level. In 2005, Shaun Alexander had over 1,800 yards on the ground and 28 total touchdowns. He wasn’t a big receiving threat, but he did his damage on the ground.
2019 Christian McCaffrey - In the prime era of PPR scoring, Christian McCaffrey has been one of the top fantasy backs. In 2019 he rushed for 1,387 yards and 15 rushing touchdowns. He also had over 110 receptions and 1,005 receiving yards. He tacked on for receiving touchdowns to bring it to 19 total.
2007 Randy Moss - The 2007 New England offense was one of the best of all-time, and Randy Moss was a major reason why. He had 1,493 receiving yards and 23 total touchdowns. Moss was one of the best fantasy wideouts because this is the second time he had over 15 receiving touchdowns.
2011 Calvin Johnson - Calvin Johnson had nearly 1,700 receiving yards in 2011, and had 16 total receiving touchdowns. He caught 96 receptions, posting one of the top fantasy seasons of any wideout. Johnson followed up 2011 with a season where he had nearly 2,000 receiving yards, but just five touchdowns.
2011 Rob Gronkowski - The all-time best season by a tight end belongs to Rob Gronkowski. He had over 1,300 yards, 90 catches, and 17 total touchdowns. He saw 124 and averaged 83 yards a game and one touchdown a game.
Top Fantasy Quarterbacks Of All-Time
There was a rivalry between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and the two of them posted some monster fantasy seasons. Manning and the duo of Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne dominated fantasy football for a very long time. When he went over to Denver, he posted one of the best fantasy seasons of any quarterback throwing for 55 touchdowns. His best Colts season came in 2004 when he tossed 49 touchdowns and threw for over 4,500. In 2007, matching with Randy Moss’ best season, he had 4,800 yards through the air and 50 total touchdowns. Brady posted a few of the top 20 fantasy scoring seasons for a quarterback.
People might have forgotten how dominant of a quarterback in fantasy Aaron Rodgers was. He has five seasons among the 20 best fantasy seasons of quarterbacks. Rodgers was often pushing 40 touchdowns and throwing for over 4,000 yards. He also would add some rushing yard and touchdown production. A healthy Cam Newton was also a fantasy treat because of his rushing upside. His overall fantasy career didn’t have a long length, but a few years he was one of the top fantasy targets because of his legs.
Drew Brees and the Saints offense was always a popular fantasy target. Brees posted some monster years where the volume crept towards 650 passing attempts. Brees has always been one of the more accurate fantasy quarterbacks in history and had over 5,000 yards in each of the 2011, 2012, and 2013 seasons. He tossed 46, 39, and 43 touchdowns in that span as well. He ranks fourth all-time for his 2011 season in overall fantasy points scored by a quarterback.
Top Fantasy Running Backs Of All-Time
Now the prime of a running back for fantasy might not be as long as other positions, but we saw some dominant stretches. The number of workhorse backs are not as high, and the overall run play dominance teams had is different from now. It was a true running back era. LaDainian Tomlinson will go down as one of the best backs to play the game, but his fantasy production is still on another level. He currently holds the record for most PPR points in an entire season among non-quarterback positions. He had a monster year in 2006 as stated above, but he didn’t stop there. A few years prior, Tomlinson had over 1,600 yards on the ground and 13 rushing touchdowns. he also had 100 catches and over 700 receiving yards. In 2005 and 2006 he had a nearly identical season scoring 366 and 367 fantasy points.
Kansas City had a stretch of running backs that dominated in fantasy football. We saw Priest Holmes, Larry Johnson, and Jamaal Charles all post monster seasons at their time. Larry Johnson had 37 touchdowns between the 2005 and 2006 season, also rushing for over 1,700 yards in each season. Holmes in 2003 had a 27 rushing touchdown season and averaged 89 rushing yards on the ground. Charles was a true dual-threat running back and posted 378 PPR points in 2013. Shaun Alexander didn’t have a long career, but when he played he had a few big scoring years, mainly looking at 2004 and 2005, where he had 27 and 16 rushing touchdown seasons, and over 1,600 rushing yards each year.
Top Fantasy Wide Receivers Of All-Time
It is hard to argue against Randy Moss being one of the top fantasy weapons of all-time. He had two of the best fantasy seasons among all wide receivers in 2007 and 2003. In 2007 as mentioned above, it was with New England where he had over 380 PPR points and 23 total touchdowns. In 2003 with the Minnesota Vikings, Moss had over 1,600 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. Moss was a machine in the touchdown department, and we haven’t seen those types of numbers in a while. We saw a couple of random big touchdowns seasons around this time as well, with Terrell owns posting 15 in 2007 and Braylon Edwards posting 16 in 2007. Edwards was a short term fantasy success.
While Antonio Brown’s career took a wild turn, he produced two of the top PPR seasons in fantasy football history. In back to back years from 2014 to 2015, he had over 380 PPR points in each season. His total numbers over the two seasons were 23 total touchdowns and over 3,000 receiving yards. He also had 136 receptions in 2015 and 129 in 2014. Overall Brown’s career was some of the best fantasy seasons, because in 2018 he produced 323 fantasy points, and posted another dominant season. If we are looking in more recent times, Michael Thomas has been on a PPR tear. He has over 90 receptions in each of his first five seasons, and over 1,000 yards in each season. Thomas also has 32 total touchdowns.
Another Detroit football player retired on the earlier side, and it was Calvin Johnson. But when he played, he was one of the best. Johnson posted one of the top fantasy seasons of all-time where he had 359 PPR points in 2011. The year prior he had 1,964 receiving yards but failed to find the end zone, with five receiving touchdowns. He could have truly posted a more dominant fantasy season. In 2013, Johnson went for 1,492 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. His career was filled with consistent fantasy seasons, and you could rely on him as the true WR1 during that time.
Top Fantasy Tight Ends Of All-Time
There was not a more dominant fantasy tight end than Rob Gronkowski. When he was at his full health, which was hit and miss, he was producing top fantasy seasons. He currently ranks inside the top ten for fantasy scoring seasons among tight ends three times. Gronkowski has three seasons scoring double-digit touchdowns and also being over 1,000 yards. In 2011 he posted the most fantasy points of any tight end in football history. Prime Jimmy Graham in New Orleans was one of Drew Brees’ favorite weapons and it showed. He currently has two seasons within the top five for fantasy scoring at the position.
If we go back to the mid-2000s, Tony Gonzalez was one of the best options you could have for a tight end on your team. Both with Kansas City, he posted 2,200 yards in two seasons where he had 17 total touchdowns. He is just outside the top ten in scoring for fantasy tight ends. Around that same time, Antonio Gates was a touchdown machine. His 2004 and 2005 seasons combined were one of the best all-time. He had 23 total touchdowns during those seasons and over 2,000 receiving yards combined.
In more recent years, we have seen Travis Kelce dominate in fantasy football. he has four straight seasons over 1,000 yards and six straight seasons over 800 receiving yards. Kelce isn’t a massive touchdown producer like the names above, but he has 37 total touchdowns over his six seasons with the Chiefs. When all is said and done, Kelce will go into the books as one of the top fantasy options in fantasy history.
