Important Game Stats for Week 8 of the NFL Season:
- defenses the Titans have faced the last 3 weeks: #32 Jaguars, #31 Chiefs, #29 Jets & #4 Bills
- Tannehill has been sacked on just 1-of-59 dropbacks the past two weeks & the Colts are last in the NFL in pressure rate (16.3%)

- Swift has not run the ball well this season, ranking dead last in rushing yardage below expectation (-94 yards) and has just forced just four missed tackles on carries, but his fantasy production hasn’t been impacted because Swift is so involved as a pass catcher
- Houston’s offenses averages 1.4 rushes per game that gain 10 or more yards, the fewest in the league, but allows 4.1 carries per game to gain 10 or more yards, 30th in the league.
- The Texans have been outscored 123-27 in the second half this season – that -96-point differential is the largest in the league (next closest team (Atlanta) is at -49 points)
- The Browns are allowing a league-low 4.6 yards per play on first down and the Steelers offense is averaging 4.0 yards per play on first down plays, the fewest in the league.
- The Steelers are 25th in yards allowed per carry (4.5 YPC), but they have allowed just one touchdown to opposing backs through six games

- San Francisco has converted 31.4% of their third downs, 30th in the league.
- Buffalo leads the league in the differential of 20-yard plays on offense versus allowed defensively at +15. Miami is dead last in the same category at -20.
- Miami ranks fourth in the league in blitz rate at 28.0%, and blitzed Allen on 33.3% of his dropbacks in Week 2. But since that game, Allen has completed 22-of-33 passes (66.7%) for 284 yards (8.6 Y/A) against the blitz as has handled pressure much better than early in the season.
- Buffalo is first in the league in points allowed per pass attempt (0.23), yards allowed per pass attempt (5.7 Y/A), second in completion rate (58.3%), and third in yards allowed per completion (9.7 yards).
- The Bills absolutely wrecked this Miami offensive line back in Week 2, pressuring Miami passers on 60.4% of their dropbacks, registering six sacks.
- The Jets blitz at the 12th-highest rate in the NFL and #1 highest on third down. Joe Burrow has scorched teams that are sending blitzes in his direction, completing 71.0% of his passes for 11.9 yards per pass attempt with eight touchdowns against extra pass rushers this season

- 48.6% of the rushing attempts against the Chargers have gained five or more yards, the highest rate in the league. The league average is 35.8%.
- The Patriots are averaging a gain of 20 or more yards once every 11.5 offensive plays, which leads the league.
- Jones has averaged 8.5 and 10.9 Y/A the past two games against the Jets and Cowboys. The Chargers are allowing just 7.0 Y/A (11th) to opposing passers, but they are 25th in completion rate (68.7%) allowed to passers since they force opponents to throw heavily underneath by taking away the deep ball.
- Jones will have no issues playing that brand of football as his 7.8-yard average depth of target is 26th in the league.
- The Seahawks are last in the NFL in sack differential (-11).
- But the Jaguars are 30th in the league in sack rate per dropback (3.8%). Jacksonville is forcing just 1.7 sacks plus turnovers per game, the fewest in the league.
- James Robinson draws a Seattle defense allowing a gaudy 182.0 yards from scrimmage to opposing backfields (31st).

- New Orleans is allowing 3.3 yards per first down rushing attempt, second in the league.
- Tampa Bay is allowing 3.6 yards per first down rushing play, third in the league.
- The Buccaneers lead the league with 3.1 touchdowns scored in the red zone per game but the Saints have allowed opponents to convert 35.7% (5-of-14) of their red zone possessions for touchdowns, the lowest rate in the league.
- Washington (1.07) and Denver (1.05) rank 31st and 30th in points allowed per pass attempt over 15 yards downfield.
- Washington has allowed a top-eight fantasy scorer in every game since Week 1. Three of those guys have been Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Aaron Rodgers, but that also includes Matt Ryan, Jameis Winston, and Daniel Jones
- Washington is allowing just 3.5 YPC to backs (second) and 10.5 rushing points per game (ninth) to backfields.
