More on Fitz’s numbers

Posted by Chris Brown on October 27, 2010 – 10:18 am

By now most Bills fans are aware that Ryan Fitzpatrick is the second highest rated passer in the NFL next to Peyton Manning. But there are some other numbers that are intriguing concerning Fitz’s performance thus far too.

Pro Football Focus’ fantasy department breaks down several of Fitzpatrick’s numbers, the most interesting of which is his touchdowns per attempt percentage. He currently has a touchdown rate of 8.6%. That touchdown per attempt rate is insanely high, especially when you consider that Tom Brady’s TD/attempt percentage was 8.7% in the Patriots’ undefeated season of 2007.

As such ProFootballFocus does not believe Fitz will keep up the pace he’s currently set for himself. I’m inclined to wait and see just what else Fitz has in store for us before blindly agreeing with PFF, but they are interesting figures to look at nonetheless.
