Solos + Assists
Derrick Johnson had a whopping 1 assist in 8 home games last year (15 for the year, DQ had 54 assists). Maybe it was just a fluke, maybe KC has fired their scorekeeper, but it was ridiculous and hard to ignore. Unless of course your scoring rules ignore them.
Geez, that's interesting.
Hope that didn't sound smarmy. That is interesting.
Yeah, interesting - as in "I own DJ and am going to fly to KC and sock their scorer in the mouth" interesting.
He'd have a shot at being number 1 in my league every year if their scorekeeper would loosen up his damn assists.
Want another one to look at? Lavonte David. Not as bad as in KC, but both their scorekeepers think assisted tackles are something to be given out only in extreme situations. David would easily finish the year a few spots higher if he played in some other NFL cities.
*Edited* to add that David finished with 27. To put it in perspective, Kuechly finished with 63 assists, and a few others had over 60. Normally guys who are high tackle guys (like David and Johnson) get TONS of assists. The guys with low assists usually are pass rushers or just lower tackle guys in general. Unless you play with a crappy scorekeeper, that is.
