Touchdown Dependency - 2017 NFL Season

Posted by Stagg Party on 03/30/18

by   The Archer


@TheArcher


More Articals

SHARE ON

In 2017, we witnessed Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara become the first two teammates to each accumulate 1,500 scrimmage yards; the first time in NFL history. We also saw their quarterback, Drew Brees, break the NFL record for highest completion percentage with 72%.

 

In New England, we rooted on Tom Brady as he became the oldest player ever at 40 years old to lead the NFL in passing with his 4,577 passing yards, and he continued to pass his way to tying the NFL record for most Super Bowl losses with five.

 

Rookies Christian McCaffrey, Deshaun Watson, Kareem Hunt, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and T.J. Watt introduced themselves to us, and each used their first impressions to set franchise or league records of their own.

 

Hell, we even saw an Eagles team win the Super Bowl for their first time!

 

But after riding the high of the NFL season for a little over twenty weeks, it’s time to prepare for the comedown.


 

“Welcome to the suck.”


February is one of the more challenging months for many of us football fans. It is the month where journalists transition from writing weekly cookie-cutter copy into something more along the lines of a “throwing darts, hope something sticks for clicks; I’m here to wing it” approach. February is also the month where many amateur scouts, film grinders, and analysts come out of hibernation to psychoanalyze everything and anything on the incoming draft class to reach a methodical (but many times not) opinion. Now at some point shortly after these opinions are shared and published on the world wide web, they receive a promotion to the rank of “fact.” The science behind how these hobbyists’ opinions transform into “facts” is uncertain, but asking questions is a surefire way to debate with the person who raised and nurtured the “fact” since it was just a young opinion. No one truly understands the science behind Optimus Prime because it’s fun to watch, so just sit back and watch the “facts” take flight because that too is fun to watch.



“Welcome to the suck.”


February is a great month to reflect on the previous season. When Numa Pompilius added the month of February into the Roman calendar, I assume he did so not because it made sense, but because he needed time to reflect on the 714-13 B.C. season. Do your part of honoring Numa Pompilius and use the month of February the way it was intended to be used. Re-watch some games, study the incoming draft class, watch highlights from Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, audit your fantasy football rankings, polish your fantasy football trophy—the list goes on and on. You have at least 28 days, use them.

 

Now, on a good year (formerly known as “every other year”), and with the blessing of an international non-governmental organization (NGO), we not only use February to reflect on the previous season, but we reflect while watching other bad ass sports like Bobsleigh, Figure Skating, and Curling. What a year to be alive! Last month, we saw the 2018 Winter Olympics come and go, and even though we expect it, the United States didn’t win every event. But we’re not here to talk about what America isn’t good at in February; we’re here to talk about what America is good at in the five months that lead up to February—the NFL season. How can we do this while also giving some mad props to that aforementioned international NGO? By awarding some make-believe gold, silver, and bronze medals to some of the season’s top performers in our annual Touchdown Dependency charts, of course!

 

Pay no attention to the medal-qualifying “events” or the process used to score who wins. This is fantasy football early in the offseason, and we’re going to treat it as such.

 

Also, this is probably way high on the “worst ways to use this data” list, but we figured we would save you the trouble if for some reason you felt the desire to do this too.

 


 

Quarterbacks

 

Touchdown Dependency for Quarterbacks from 2017

 


Forty quarterbacks were split into four groups. Group A includes the top ten scoring quarterbacks from last season; Group B includes the following ten scoring quarterbacks, and so forth, with Group D rounding out the top forty.

3. Passing Yards
4. Passing TDs

7. Rushing TDs
8. Fumbles Lost (fewest)


 

Each quarterback will gain 1.5 points for a 1st place finish in an event, 1 point for 2nd place finish, and 0.5 points for a 3rd place finish.

 

After all eight events, the points are scored, and the top three (sometimes more) scoring quarterbacks will be awarded a medal.

Tight Ends

 

Touchdown Dependency - Tight Ends - 2017 NFL Season

 

 

Forty tight ends were split into four groups. Group A includes the top ten scoring tight ends from last season; Group B includes the following ten scoring tight ends, and so forth, with Group D rounding out the top forty.

 

The five tight end events are:


1. Fantasy Points (FP)
2. Fantasy Points per Game (FP/G)
3. Receiving Yards
4. Receiving TDs
5. Fumbles Lost (fewest)

 

 

Each tight end will gain 1.5 points for a 1st place finish in an event, 1 point for 2nd place finish, and 0.5 points for a 3rd place finish.

After all five events, the points are scored, and the top three (sometimes more) scoring tight ends will be awarded a medal.

There you have it! Touchdown Dependency Winter Olympics is one way to avoid all the coachspeak, opinionated facts, clickbait articles, and general offseason nonsense. Taking the time to reflect on the previous season may just teach you a thing or two, or even add a layer toward next season’s preparation.


Too bad you still must avoid the noise for another half a year.

 


“Welcome to the suck.”


Find a way to have fun with it.
