QB Rankings Table Functionality

The table above is a sortable and filterable tool for NFL QB rankings and stats. The data is organized by NFL season and includes both active quarterbacks and quarterbacks throughout NFL history.
The sorting and filtering functionality allows you to create interesting views and comparisons. For instance, you can compare EPA for all rookie quarterbacks by entering their names in the "QBs" filter box and clicking the EPA column, or you can see passing leaders from last season by selecting it in the "Seasons" dropdown and sorting by Passing Yards.

Section Descriptions

QB Rankings

Rankings are derived from 538's QB Elo model, but expressed as points and adjusted for era. The "points" value represents how many more points the QB is worth to the spread relative to an average starter of their era. The era adjustment allows QBs across NFL History to be compared.

Passing and Rushing Stats

This section includes traditional passing stats, like Passing Yards, Passing Touchdowns, Yards per Attempt in addition to basic rushing ability stats like Yards and Yards per Carry. These (and all other stats in the table) are regular season only and do not include playoff games.

Rates

Rate stats measure the percent of attempts or dropbacks that resulted in a particular outcome. For instance, TD% represents the percent of pass attempts that resulted in a passing TD. Success rate is the percent of dropbacks that resulted in positive EPA, and Exp% is the percent of dropbacks that were explosive plays.

Ratings

Ratings are a collection of popular methodologies for quantifying the quarterback position. This includes traditional passer rating, Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt (ANY/A), 538's custom QB Elo metric, and ESPN's QBR where available.

EPA and EPA Components

EPA stands for Expected Points Added. It measures the quarterback's contribution towards offensive production by taking game context (down, distance to go, score, etc) into consideration. This is expressed as both a rate (EPA per Dropback) and a total.
EPA Components look at where a QB's EPA production came from by comparing their component averages to the league average. For instance, a QB with a +0.02 Sack EPA vs League Average lost 0.02 points less per dropback than the league average QB.

Depth of Target

Depth stats look at how far down the field the QB threw on average. aDOT stands for Average Depth of Target, while "vs Sticks" looks at target depth relative to the first down marker.
Typically playmaking QBs with a lot of athletic ability like Russell Wilson, Lamar Jackson, and Josh Allen can create more time to throw down field, while pocket QBs that rely on timing and precision like Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, and Mac Jones throw shorter passes. The offensive system implemented by the head coach or offensive coordinator can also impact aDOT. For instance, under Matt Lefleur, Aaron Rodgers went from being a high aDOT QB to low aDOT QB.

Winning

Winning encompasses high level stats like wins, losses, and ties, in addition to advanced metrics like Win Probability Added. QBs that make big plays in critical moments (think Joe Burrow in his 2021 Super Bowl run) tend to have produce the most WPA
