QB Fantasy Stats Guide

to the

We have compiled the most important fantasy stats for quarterbacks to help you out throughout the fantasy season or even prepping for your drafts. Starting with the player tab, you will see each player and their overall Lineups Rating, which is unique to our site. Their depth chart number is listed, which could change throughout the season if there is an injury or a change of starting quarterbacks. The bye week will show you when they have their week off as a whole team.

The fantasy points tab will show you the number of fantasy points a player is accumulating during the current season or showing you what they did over prior seasons. This is broken down in a fantasy points per game column, which gives you a better understanding of what they were putting up on average each week. The total is also provided. Breaking down fantasy points per snap and touch is a bit more useful for other positions with more than one position on the field or a running back that uses a committee. However, you can see snaps of a quarterback and the number of team snaps they play as a percentage.

Passing stats will point you in the direction of what is mostly going to score your fantasy points. The volume numbers will be the overall attempts and attempts per game. The production numbers will be the yards, touchdowns, interceptions, and number of 300+ yard games a quarterback has. We inserted this because leagues will use the 300+ yard mark game as a bonus, as does draftkings. Rushing numbers are important for a few quarterbacks, as we have seen with names like Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen.

Now red zone numbers are important. We start with the number of visits to the red zone, which is simply the number of times a team snaps the ball inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. Now some offenses score more from outside and negate the lower numbers they have in the red zone, but we see a correlation with teams that find the red zone often and also are efficient. It is deflating when offenses can’t find the end zone and have to settle for three. This is broken down and shown how good a quarterback is inside the red zone.

The dropdown tabs at the top will get you to the season that you want, and then you can also drop down between red zone and basic stats. There are three main scoring systems out there right now, with standard, half-PPR, and PPR. These dropdowns will adjust the scoring system to reflect within the table below. The same goes for the daily fantasy sites as well as the totals and per game dropdown. If you are looking to see over the last five, three, or one game, you can narrow that down.

Quarterback Efficiency Vs. Volume

When we look at the overall fantasy scorers, we often see volume trump most other stats, and that goes for most positions and not just quarterback. It is important to remember you can’t entirely throw out efficiency or volume, but the two have their impact on how players produce. When a quarterback is not as efficient, for example like Jameis Winston, the volume made him a top-three fantasy quarterback in 2019. He had 30 interceptions, which would normally derail a quarterback, but he had over 5,000 yards and 33 touchdowns. Now here is an example of volume carrying poor efficiency, as Jared Goff had the same amount of attempts, but finished nine spots lower in scoring. He still averaged 20 fantasy points per game, which had a lot do with his yards.

Some quarterbacks don’t have a ton of volume, but can still put up fantasy points. There are a few reasons for this, with the rushing production likely being the main one. They have a lot of rushing attempts that take away from overall passing attempts, and that is where the fantasy points come by. A quarterback could also just be extremely efficient and makes up for the loss of volume because he gets the job done in the red zone, and he hits his mark every week without needing 40+ attempts a game. We have seen Drew Brees take a step back from being a top-five fantasy quarterback, which had a lot to do with volume, but he is still a reliable option. He is extremely accurate, and while the Saints are not as pass-heavy anymore, Brees often ends up with 250 yards and two scores most weeks.

Efficiency and volume matter when it comes to the player you are dealing with, so it is unfair to just compare the two. There are going to be a lot of different aspects to factor in, as most are mentioned above. So it is important to evaluate the player before determining whether volume or efficiency is more important for them.

Red Zone Quarterback Stats

When we go season to season, we could see some positive and negative regression. If a player is efficient in the red zone on minimal attempts, we might see a small tick back. It works the other way too, with players having a lot of attempts, but the conversion rate is there. We can look at prior seasons to see if it was a fluky run or not. Overall we want to look at efficiency inside the red zone as some quarterbacks show just more red zone success on minimal attempts. These numbers can all be a bit sticky every year, like Russell Wilson completing less than 50% of red zone passes in 2019, but he had the most touchdowns. Trips to the red zone are still the most important thing to look at here.

Quarterbacks can also be used inside the red zone as running backs. We have seen quarterbacks take things into their own hands. If they are getting plenty of rushing attempts inside the red zone, that is going to be good for fantasy production because rushing touchdown chances are there. The amount of touches in a red zone even for a quarterback throwing the ball and rushing is going to be big for overall touchdown numbers. They correlate with scoring and often point to some positive regression if they are struggling.

Different Styles Of Fantasy Quarterbacks

There are not a ton of run-first quarterbacks in the league right now, but rushing numbers play a big part in fantasy football for quarterbacks. Especially when they are above average passers and have that athleticism to escape the pocket when needed. We have seen that with Kyle Murray, Russell Wilson, and Deshaun Watson. These names right here also throw the ball well and are not known just for their legs. Murray is still relatively new to the league, but we have seen a strong finish out of him in fantasy already, but Watson and Wilson are up at the top ten in fantasy scoring each year because they will add rushing numbers on top of their passing production.

A guy like Josh Allen for the Buffalo Bills relies more on his legs to be a strong fantasy quarterback. He is not the most efficient passer in the league, but he is an excellent running quarterback. So when looking through fantasy stats, you might see a quarterback who is not particularly posting strong passing stats but have above-average fantasy point production. This is likely because they are doing a lot with their legs. The volume of rushing attempts isn’t that high for many, but a few there are. Jackson and Allen are those names who see over 100 rushing attempts alone. The ones that are more selective about it can do so because they throw more. Jackson is the exception to most because he is also an efficient passer, which is why he posted one of the best fantasy seasons of all-time.

When looking at more of the pocket passers, we dive into some names like Patrick Mahomes, Matt Ryan, and Carson Wentz. Now Mahomes and Wentz might add a little bit with their legs on occasion, but for the most part, these types of players are going to be scoring with their arms. This is where yards and touchdowns are extremely important. Of course, we want these names to put up big yards and touchdowns. If they don’t, then a down week is likely going to happen, and it leaves the rest of your lineup scrambling to make up for it. The volume can certainly help quarterbacks, which we talk about above.

Some quarterbacks on run-heavy offenses are used more as game managers and don’t need to have the huge attempts and production for their team to win games. This can be a bit frustrating because they could be efficient, yet the upside weekly is a bit capped. We have seen that with a few names like Kirk Cousins and Jimmy Garoppolo, where they are not asked to do too much each week because they have a good defense and rushing attack. Therefore they might be more middling fantasy options.

Quarterback fantasy football stats FAQ

What Stats Score The Most Fantasy Points For Quarterbacks?

Rushing numbers for quarterbacks score more fantasy points, as ten rushing yards equals one fantasy points compared to 25 passing yards. Rushing touchdowns equal six fantasy points compared to four for passing touchdowns. Overall, yards and touchdowns are the stats that generate the fantasy points for quarterbacks.

What Are The Most Important Fantasy Stats For Quarterbacks?

Touchdowns and yards are the most important stat because they accumulate the most fantasy points, whether that is rushing or passing. We can also look at volume, which means rushing and passing attempts as quarterbacks who throw or run often have more production.

How Are QB Fantasy Points Calculated?

In most default scoring systems, every 25 passing yards will equal one fantasy point. Every passing touchdown will equal four fantasy points. Interceptions are negative two. Rushing yards are one point for every ten, and six points for every rushing touchdowns.

What Is Fantasy Points Per Snap?

Fantasy points per snap are simply total fantasy points divided by the number of snaps a player has played. This will show you the number of fantasy points they score per down they are on the field. It can point to the higher scoring fantasy players.

Are Mobile Quarterbacks Better For Fantasy Football?

Quarterbacks that are able to run and pick up fantasy points on the ground have an extra edge in scoring. Because rushing touchdowns and yards are more fantasy points than passing ones, they are easier to accumulate fantasy points for.

What Are Red Zone Visits?

Red zone visits are when an offense reaches the opposing 20-yard line of the other team. That is called the red zone. If a team has six drives in a game end up reaching inside the 20-yard line, they will end up with six red zone visits.
