Adjusted Line Yards Matchup Metric

Last Updated: October 4th, 2022

Football Outsiders has created a metric called adjusted line yards which measures the push an offensive line gets vs. a defensive line from the line of scrimmage. This metric helps measure the impact good or bad the offensive line will have on the ground game in any given week. In this analysis, we have reviewed the adjusted line yards of the offensive line and defensive line to identify the top matchups of the week. Furthermore, for our analysis, we took it one step further and factored in who each offense and defense has faced so far to give us a new weighted adjusted line yards metric. The new weighted adjusted line yards metric is shown in the chart below for both offense and defense. 

If you want to see the original data, you can find it here on FootballOutsiders.com!
