Few things to think about going into week 5

I like the website www.footballoutsiders.com (no, they didn’t pay me to say that).  They have some neat stats.  Here’s a few random things I found by browsing their database tonight.

  • The Colts are 5th worst in the league with their interception rate, throwing one on about every eight drives.
  • 39% of Green Bay’s drives do not result in a TD or even a 1st down.
  • Denver is averaging 3 points for every time their offense touches the ball.
  • St Louis is averaging less than 1.
  • Arizona is turning the ball over once every 5 times they get the ball.

In other news:

Yards per attempt numbers can tell a lot about a QB.  Here’s some numbers:

  • 6.53
  • 5.83
  • 5.71
  • 5.68
  • 4.64

A very good QB is usually around 8YPA or higher (unless you are in a Mike Martz offense, which throws all the numbers out of whack).  Those pitiful numbers above belonged to:

  • Peyton Manning
  • Marc Bulger
  • Carson Palmer
  • Matt Hasselbeck
  • Derrick Anderson

After tonight, my fantasy starters will be:
Eli Manning
Greg Jennings
Eddie Royal
Clinton Portis
Chris Johnson
Anthony Fasano
Roy Williams

Williams and Portis are the only players I drafted.
