FP per Touch Stats (Updated through 10/22)

Before I get into this, I want to apologize greatly for the lack of updates to the site. A lot of things have changed in my schedule that haven’t allowed me to keep the site updated as I would like. I want to provide all of you with good content and I apologize again for not doing that.

I want to dive into something that can be quite useful in determining how safe a player is to play, Fantasy Points (FP) per touch. I will take into account all pass attempts, rushes, receptions, and kick/punt returns. I will use a pretty standard scoring system in this process.

All TDs=6 points

Receptions= .5 points

Rushing/Receiving yards= .1 point per yard

RBs (Min. 80 total touches)

As you can see, there are many names to be expected on this list, especially near the top. I used the 80 touch threshold because we are now in we are now in week 8 and it makes some of the early week guys that have played 8 games to have at least a 10 touch per game average.

Matt Breida has been incredibly efficient with his touches so far in 2015; no surprise there. Tyler Ervin, however, has not been near as efficient although he has exactly 100 more touches than Breida. Ervin seems to be way more dependent on touches to produce a high volume of points. I always like to have the guys that get plenty of touches but it’s always nice to have guys that can make the most out of each time they touch the football.

Many of these guys might be products of their systems and thrive on the limited number of touches, but it is nice to know which guys are taking advantage of them. Of course, more touches doesn’t always mean they will continue to score points at their current rate, but at this point of the season it can be very useful information especially when deciding flex options in season long or that last player in your GPP.
