Here are this week’s rush defense matchups.[table “14” not found /]
Here are the DVOA numbers on running backs as receivers. I like to look at these when I am gauging a RB that is good in the passing game. If the team he is facing has a poor DVOA here, I give him a boost in my rankings.[table “17” not found /]
1st Chart Key:
Each number is the ranking that the teams have in that particular statistic over the last 5 weeks. For example, Pittsburgh has given up the least amount of rushing yards per game so they have a “1″ under the “Yds/Gm” column. The ranking on the left coincides with the average on the right. The higher the number the worse their rush defense stats are.
Rank: Overall ranking of each team.
Team: The team that is being evaluated for their defensive strength.
Opp: The team with your fantasy players
Yds/Gm: Total rushing yards given up per game
RB FPA: Fantasy points allowed to running backs
Yds/c: Yards Per Carry
TDs: Rushing touchdowns allowed
Average: The average of each each individual ranking. (this makes up the overall ranking)
