This article outlines the top-performing college players each week. There is a table for each position organized by draft eligibility and, below each table, I’ll note things I find interesting.

QUARTERBACKS

The best metrics for year-over-year correlation at the QB position are QBR, EPA/Play, AYA, and Completion %.

RUNNING BACKS

The best metrics for RBs are Yards per Team Play which is a measure of volume and efficiency, Backfield Dominator Rating which is the share of the backfield production, rushing and receiving, that an RB earns, Dominator Rating which is the share of the total team rushing and receiving production, and Reception Share which tells you how big of the reception pie the RB earned.

WIDE RECEIVERS

The most important stats for a WR are their Reception Yards per Team Pass Attempt and Weighted Dominator Rating. Generally, over 2 is good and 3 is great for RYPTPA, over 20% is good and 30% is great for Weighted Dominator.
