Additionally, efficiency can be misleading. Look at Atlanta’s offense last season: Matt Ryan posted one of the highest Adjusted Yards Per Attempts of all time playing a soft schedule. Operating in that hyper-efficient offense, Tevin Coleman was one of the most efficient running backs and Taylor Gabriel was one of the most efficient wide receivers. A regression is coming.
So when does efficiency matter? When things change. When an efficient player’s situation changes, past efficiency matters.
Efficient Running Backs
Here are three efficient running backs with efficient advanced stats, metrics, and analytics profiles:
Ty Montgomery was an efficiency monster and is the only proven NFL runner left on the Green Bay roster.
Duke Johnson is lining up as a receiver throughout preseason. He fits the profile of an efficient satellite back-plus – an elite receiver with bell cow traits.
Efficient Wide Receivers
Here are three efficient wide receivers with efficient advanced stats, metrics, and analytics profiles:
PlayerProfiler favorite Adam Thielen and the Viking go from one of the hardest to one of the easiest schedules for passing attacks.
The Dallas Cowboys schedule goes from very easy to very hard in 2017. This means more snaps and more targets for Cole Beasley and his 75% catch rate.
