I was really interested in the height data because I’ve had a suspicion that shorter backs are generally better; they’re usually more agile, quicker, and have a low center-of-gravity which is crucial for running backs. Related to both height and weight is body-mass index (BMI). Using BMI to judge overall health is absolutely asinine—pretty much every NFL player falls into the ‘obese’ category based on their height and weight—but it’s still a good measure of how much bulk a running back possesses; a 5’10” back who weighs 210 pounds is bulkier and has a higher BMI than a 5’10” back who weighs only 190 pounds.
This was at first a surprise to me because we wouldn’t expect heavier backs to be worse. I overlooked an important fact, though; generally, heavier backs are slower than light ones, and speed is incredibly important to running backs. I’ve shown that the 40-yard dash matters more for backs than for any other position, by far. Here’s a refresher. 50 (regardless of his weight), there’s very little chance I’ll draft him. The fact that heavy running backs are much worse than lighter ones isn’t surprising when you consider the differences in speed.
Second, clutch play is a component of it, and most statisticians will tell you that any perceived clutch play is primarily just due to variance. At the very least, clutch play is like injury-proneness in that even if it exists, we probably can’t use past data to help us predict the future on the individual level. A quarterback with a high QBR in the past is likely to continue posting a high QBR in the near future, but there are better metrics out there for us to predict quarterback play. Even simple fantasy-points-per-play works better.
