The 10 Worst Quarterback Seasons Over the Last Decade
And while it's extremely useful and interesting to delve deep into what made these seasons so spectacular, both from a fantasy and real football perspective, I find it equally interesting to investigate the opposite side of the spectrum.
Using numberFire’s Using Net Expected Points (NEP), an analytical measure of how far above or below expected value a player performed during a specific timeframe, I was able to cobble together a list of the 10 worst individual quarterback performances over the last decade. Results were limited to quarterbacks with 300 or more drop backs in a given season.
Not only does this study serve as a mile-post of sorts for how badly things can truly get, but when we see certain players on this list currently in position to start in 2016, it really adds weight to the argument regarding the lack depth of the current quarterback talent pool.
So hold your nose, because today, we’re going dumpster diving.
