[QUOTE=FF2®;4501496]I'm not sure what you are saying here. Do you think Keller is better than Veron Davis? :confused:[/QUOTE]
I don't know, you tell me; are you seriously trying to tell me that you, out of all people, don't understand how to read DYAR and/or DVOA. I mean, after all, you're the one who mentioned it, no?
are you familiar with DYAR and DVOA which are used to rate tight ends?[/QUOTE]
So once again, I never stated that Dustin Keller is "better" than Vernon Davis; I've simply made it known that A.) He's been just as productive as Vernon Davis on the football field (if not more productive) and B.) Dustin Keller's first four years in the league have been much stronger when compared to Vernon Davis' first four years in the league.
[B]DYAR & DVOA[/B]
During Keller's first 4 years in the league, he combined for an average DYAR of 39.5 (average ranking of 24.75) and an average DVOA of -1.1 (average ranking of 27.7).
During Vernon's first 4 years in the league, he combined for an average DYAR of 7 (average ranking of 31.6) and an average DVOA of -18.5 (average ranking of 32.5).
Don't say anything else (unless you admit the truth hurts; say nothing). But yeah, don't say nothing else... Since you understand how DYAR and DVOA works (in regards to RATE tight ends), which TE has/had a better DYAR and DVOA when comparing their first 4 seasons in the league ala heading into their 5th season, which TE was rated higher? That's all I need to know, what's the answer? (Waiting on you). Who had a higher TE rating heading into their 5th season; Keller or Davis?
If you don't understand, or don't know how to read DYAR and DVOA... I'll provide simple statistics.
[B]Simple statistics. [/B]
First 4 years from Dustin Keller: 213 receptions, 2,559 receiving yards, 12.0 yards per reception, 131 first down receptions, 15 TD's and 2 fumbles.
First 4 years from Vernon Davis: 181 receptions, 2,097 receiving yards, 11.5 yards per reception, 93 first down receptions, 22 TD's and 4 fumbles.
[B]It's a no contest. [/B]
