Air yards -- the distance the ball traveled from the line of scrimmage to the receiver at the catch point -- provide a lot of context to each fantasy football receiver’s floor and ceiling. Targets aren’t created equal because some are closer to the line of scrimmage and some are deeper downfield. Short targets aren’t worth as much as deep targets, but they are more stable week to week. Deep targets are worth more in the long run, but they are more volatile (I track these “deep targets” in my weekly “Targets Aren’t Created Equal” column on Tuesdays at Rotoworld). In conjunction with targets, air yards explain how a receiver is being used. In a perfect world, a receiver would be seeing high target volume and high air yards volume. In this article, we’ll track each player's air yards from the last week’s game to the last four weeks to the season.

Air Yards & aDOT - WRs

This table is sorted by air yards per game over the last four weeks (min. 25 air yards per game over the last four weeks). “aDOT” is average depth of target, so a high aDOT means a player is used deeper down the field and a low aDOT means a player is used closer to the line of scrimmage.
