They play an important role in the offense, but have also evolved into being red zone receiving threats. Now this isn’t going to be a high volume category like red zone rushing attempts, or any other stat, but it does show another dimension to the position. Premium backs will tend to average .5 to 1 red zone targets per game on the season. targets can be a great stat to look at, but we also want to see what backs are the most efficient with their targets. The Catch% column guides you to the more efficient backs that make the most out of their targets, which translate into touchdowns. Finding running backs that work in the passing game and get rushing attempts will hold a higher correlation to racking up touchdowns.
