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.

Let’s do this 1 last time.
In the 1st quarter Jacoby Brissett looked great . . . then the rest of the game happened
He saved the worst for last.
Brissett threw for 162 yards and almost 40% of that was T.Y. Hilton’s YAC.
Zach Pascal ends the year as the top receiver.
Jack Doyle continues his slide.
Brissett ended the year with a respectable average depth of target, but a not so respectable value per dropback.
The JB dot on this next chart hasn’t moved in three weeks, which is what happens when you don’t throw TDs.
More green squares would have been better.
Less than 50% completion rate is always going to be bad no matter who you are throwing to or how far you throw it.
Brissett’s 2019 season was the second longest time to throw of any QB, but his sack rate was below average, so that’s good . . . I guess.
