FTN’s StatsHub

NFL Advanced Stats

StatsHub is a one-of-a-kind NFL research tool that allows users to discover player and team statistics in a way that has never been so easily accessible. The tool, powered by FTN Data, displays basic statistics, such as yards, attempts, and touchdowns, as well as advanced statistics like throw accuracy, explosive run rate, catchable targets, and more.

What Is Unique About StatsHub?

StatsHub separates itself from other tools in the market with its sheer number of advanced charting fields, extensive filtering, and customization. Users will be able to filter player and team stats on a season, game, or even play level. In addition to basic filters like week, quarter, and opponent, we’ve introduced the ability to filter to specific play situations, like when a quarterback is under pressure or a running back is facing a stacked box.

Where Is This Data Coming From?

All of the data in StatsHub comes directly from FTN Data. FTN has a team of charters that watch every NFL game and track every skill player on every play. Using FTN’s player participation data, we’ve also introduced filters on play concepts, player motion, play location, specific routes, defensive coverages, and more. Interested in learning more?

Is DVOA Part Of StatsHub?

The tool includes Aaron Schatz’s DVOA metric, giving users a level of access to the metric that was never previously possible. We’ve put countless hours into the design to ensure Stats Hub is both easy to use for a novice user and complex enough for a power user who is looking to build custom reports.
