    Stats Issues YAC and Yards per Catch

    1) According to the NFL: traditionally YAC is measured by taking the difference between the yards gained and the air yards of a completed pass.

    This means that catching the ball 5 yards behind the LOS and advancing to 5 yards beyond the LOS is 5 yards of YAC - not 10. It is also*5 yards gained for the QB (air yards = 0).

    In the current version of FB Mogul, RBs and FBs often have YAC > yards per catch - which is not possible given the definition of YAC.

    2) The calculation of yard per catch appears to be off by a small amount. 33 passes caught for 333 yards is 10.1 yards per completion. Sortable stats displays it as 10.4.

    Thanks for posting this. It's possible I'm counting yards behind the Line of Scrimmage when calculating YAC.
