batmans a scientist Posted December 17, 2018 Share Posted December 17, 2018 Tableau Data for more details Through week 15 Sam Darnold is now right now the 2nd or 3rd best rookie QB this season. Darnold has a 72.8 QB Rating, while Lamar Jackson is far higher at 82.0. But Darnold has played in far more games and has started to look the part of franchise QB the past few weeks. 2018 NFL rookies compared: * Baker Mayfield - 260-407 63.9%, 3,065 Yards 21 TDs 11 INTs (14 total turnovers), 7.5 YPA, 9.1 Yards per throw, 92.6 QB Rating (Ranked 6th of 43 Rookie QBs between Colt McCoy and Cody Kessler) - Got to admit, it was a bit shocking to see to other Cleveland Browns rookies ranked 5th and 7th, just a coincidence, and neither played nearly as many snaps as Mayfield, but still. * Lamar Jackson 73-124 58.9% 818 Yards, 5TDs 3 INTs (6 Total Turnovers), 6.6 YPA, 8.8 Yards per throw, 82.0 QB Rating - 114 Rushes 568 Yards, 3 TDs (13th of 43 rookie QBs between Cam Newton and Andy Dalton) * Sam Darnold - 199-351 56.7%, 2,357 Yards 14 TDs 15 INTs (16 total turnovers), 6.7 YPA, 9.0 Yards per throw, 72.8 QB Rating (Ranked 26th of 43 Rookie QBs between Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden) * Josh Rosen - 187-336 55.7%, 2,042 Yards 10 TDs 14 INTs (17 Total Turnovers), 6.1 YPA, 7.9 Yards per throw, 66.3 QB Rating (Ranked 31st of 43 Rookie QBs between CJ Bethard and Jared Goff) * Josh Allen - 132-253 52.2% 1,633 Yards 6 TDs 9 INTs (11Total Turnovers) 6.4 YPA, 11.5 Yards per throw - 75 rushes 506 yards 6 TDs, 65.5 QB Rating (Ranked 34th of 43 Rookie QBs between Blaine Gabbert and Bryce Petty) This comparison of all rookie QBs of the past 10 years, will continue to update all season. It's data and basic Tableau bar chart that can be sorted by season, week, quarter, and down/distance, you can also filter out QBs based on how many passes Josh Allen has the highest Yards Per Throw (Depth of throw) of any rookie QB in the last decade, by half a yard. Darnold has improved since returning from injury the last 2 weeks 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
