Rushing Redzone Stats

Running backs are going to be used often while in the red zone, and here you can see what backs are producing big numbers while inside the opponent's 20-yard line. Red zone stats are broken out into three sections to help show you how much volume a player gets while in a specific area of the red zone. Having a rushing attempt inside the five-yard line is a lot different from a rushing attempt on the 19-yard line. If you are looking for quarterback rushing attempts in the red zone, you can see them here as well. Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are two quarterback names who see a lot of carries among quarterbacks inside the red zone.

Running Back Redzone Stats

Within the table, all of the rushing stats inside the red zone are broken down for each player. Any player that receives a rushing attempt inside the 20 will be shown here. Starting from the left you can see what player is listed, as well as position, team, games played, and total touchdowns. The red zone totals are going to be the number of snaps, touches, and touchdowns they have inside the red zone. Touches are simply just rushing attempts and receptions. The percentage stats are going to be the number of touches, snaps, or touchdowns in comparison to the rest of the offense. For example, Todd Gurley might have 50% of the red zone touches for his team.

Red zone stats are broken out into three different sections to show you how their stats are broken up by the area of the field. 20 yards is still a large portion of the field, and rushing attempts are not quite as even when you factor in rushing from 15 yards out compared to on the two-yard line. Within these sections, we break down the number of attempts they have, yards, and touchdowns. That way you can see how much volume a player has compared to either the league or the rest of his team. The production will follow because red zone production is going to be a major part of having success. Most running backs have their touchdowns come inside the red zone.

Why Red Zone Volume Is Important For Running Backs

Red zone volume is crucial for running back success. Sorting through volume here, you see a lot of the top backs that also have a lot of production tied to their name. It is also a way of seeing how a back is used within an offense. Volume is broken up into three different areas, which is another way to measure how backs are used. You might have a team that uses a few running backs, and volume is going to be a way to decipher who the true red zone back is. A team might also have a quarterback that runs more and can take away some rushing attempts in the red zone from running backs. Overall volume is going to be a key indicator for production, except for the occasional outlier.

Red Zone Rushing Stats For Fantasy Football

If you are playing fantasy football, finding backs that are used in the red zone is going to be key. As you sort through attempts, these are going to be running backs that you want to target. It is a way of seeing how teams use the running backs or even quarterbacks on their roster. As you sort, the volume is usually tied with production. You might have some outliers like Leonard Fournette, who had an unlucky season in the touchdown department last year. This is also a way to find some positive and negative regression players that can create a buy low or sell high opportunity.

Using the percentage stats like touch and attempt percentage is going to be the best way to see the volume on singular teams. Running backs that have 70% or more of the attempts or touches in the red zone are going to be very strong fantasy players. 50-70% is still a very solid percentage, but anything else is going to be less appealing. You will need to worry more about efficiency if players are not seeing the ball as much in the red zone. This could be because of the offense or it could be because that player just doesn't fit the game plan in the red zone.

How Teams Break Out Touches In The Red Zone

All teams are going to divide touches in the red zone differently. Teams might be more run-oriented inside the 20, or they might be looking to pass more which would push more attention to the other positions. Now those teams with workhorse backs are going to use them often in the red zones. Names like Christian McCaffrey and Ezekiel Elliott are going to see over 75% of red zone touches, which makes it easier to identify. You will usually see the quarterback or potentially a backup pick up the rest of the slack, but we at least have an idea of how that offense is going to operate. However, that is not the case with every team as they can be more tricky to project.

A team with a mobile quarterback adds another name that can take rushing attempts in the red zone. For example, Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills is the leading rusher in the red zone. Now his success has helped him keep that, but it takes away from red zone production from the running backs. Other teams have this setup as well, but if it works they are not going to change it. You also might have teams have a committee of running backs, and they will use various running backs inside the red zone. For fantasy, this can be trouble, but this is where you can help figure out how the touches are being divided. Teams might go for a larger back inside the red zone, especially inside the five-yard line. They might also use a back who has versatility as a receiving back to keep those opposing defenses guessing.
