Some Fantasy Stats to keep in mind after week one

There are probably many fans that are banging their heads on the ground after a rough week 1 loss or nail biter.  Well don’t panic after week 1 and trade away your running backs.  Just because only three players hit a 100 yards last week there are a lot to build on.  Last week the only one hundred yard rushers were:

LeSean McCoy – 184 yards

Terrelle Pryor – 112 yards

Shane Vereen – 101 yards (Crazy thing is he will be gone until week 8 with a hand injury.

What you can see in this wild pattern though is that teams were not afraid to throw the ball in week one.  Shoot Peyton Manning was tying records with 7 touchdowns, Colin Kaepernick threw for 400 yards and like I said above Terrelle Pryor even rushed for a 100 yards.  While it seems like this year will be a quarterback year, I don’t think teams were thinking about the pass game.  This week teams will be looking for the pass and the teams will run the ball more.

Did you know that 12 quarterbacks threw for over 300 yards in week 1?  That is almost half the league.

Did you know that 19 quarterbacks threw for over 250 yards?

Did you know that 63 touchdowns in week one came via the air?  That is a lot compared to the 19 rushing touchdowns, OUCH.

Here is a stat for you defensive guys, HOW MANY OF YOU HAD TENNESSEE TITANS DEFENSE?

The best defense in the NFL right now is the Tennessee Titans, who held the Steelers to an unheralded 195 yards, here is a list of top 5 defenses.

Tennessee Titans

Seattle Seahawks

Houston Texans

Oakland Raiders


Cleveland Browns.

So if you are a looking for a team to pick up, you might want to start there.
