If you’re interested in this article, take a look at my more detailed articles on the offensive identities (Part 1 and Part 2) of all the teams in 2016.

Here's a quick couple of charts rolling up all of the identities of 2016's teams.

Here’s the data, with the league average for each category included at the bottom and explanations of each column below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Wins – how many games the team won in 2015.
  • Rush % - the percentage of total plays devoted to running the ball.
  • Tot play – the sum of rushing and passing plays. The "Tot Pass" column includes sacks as well as pass attempts.
  • Rush% RB1 – RB1 is defined as the RB on the team who got the largest number of carries. The Rush % RB1 is the percentage of the team’s total RB rushes claimed by its RB1.
  • Targets – passes sent to each position, collectively for the RBs, WRs, TEs, then for the RB1 and the WR1. WR1 is defined as the team’s WR who got the most targets. Targets for RB, WR, and TE will not sum to the total passes, because “total passes” includes not only sacks but also balls thrown away, spiked, and targeted to the other positions, like eligible tackles.
  • Target % - the percentage of the total targets thrown to each position group. The figures for RB1 or WR1 are their share of the targets to their position group, not of the overall total. Target % for the three position groups may not sum to 100% due to rounding error. I often refer to these percentages as target share.

The next table is the same information except expressed as a rank, with a Top 5 finish highlighted in green and a Bottom 5 finish in red (ok, pink):
