Scott Barrett (@scottBarrettDFB) shows us a statistic for Quarterbacks from 2016-2018 that is a little interesting for Jameis Winston fans/haters.
Has to do with the % of passing yards that a QB had, which came AFTER the catch. In other words, how much did YAC affect a given QB.
Matthew Stafford had 51% of his yards come from after the catch. That tied with Blake Bortles. Alex Smith and Eli Manning took up the tie for 3rd and 4th 1% point behind. (50%)
Down at the bottom, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck are at 41%.
Coming in DEAD LAST, Jameis Winston, whose WRs gave him only 34% of his yards after the catch.
We know Mike Evans is NOT a YAC type of catcher, but what if Winston’s 2019 WRs are? A 10% jump would put Winston in rare company in Bucs history. Sure hope they don’t Doug Williams him.
Of course, no Buccaneers QB ever drafted has EVER been given a 2nd contract yet. 2019 would be a good time.
