Weekly dashboard of QB stats. Thanks to the nflscrapR project and the NFL Next Gen Stats who are the timely sources of this data. Shout-out to Arrowhead Pride’s Ethan Douglas whose weekly advanced analytics articles inspired some of these reports (OK, I stole them).
Commentary will be brief but feel free to let me know in the comments that stats aren’t everything.

Mason Rudolph has had basically 1 good game . . . against the Bengals.
Rudolph targets Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster almost equally.
While Smith-Schuster has more yards, Johnson provides better situational value. Both are targeted at about the same depth.
Rudolph’s depth of target is all over the place but on the season he is a bit above average in aDOT.
He’s thrown 9 TDs in 5 games which is a 16-game pace of 29 and he throws them from ridiculously far away.
He is about average in terms of accuracy when accounting for depth of throws, but he has problems hitting on longer passes.
He holds the ball longer than average but also takes very few sacks.
