PFF’s team of analysts work countless hours during the football season, grading every player on every play of every game at the FBS level. Along with our grades, the PFF data generated from our analysis processes also generate a bevy of advanced statistics that showcase individual standout performances.
With that in mind, each week our team of analysts will highlight those standout performances with 20 takeaways from the previous weekend slate of games.
