I did my annual dump of player stats in preparation for the 2021 season.
Matthew Berry may have his entourage of assistants to help him compile his 100+ anomalies each year.
But here are a few things that stood out.

In 2019, there were 28 RB that had at least 1000 scrimmage yards. Guess how many accomplished that in 2020.
19

Derrick Henry won the rushing title and also had 2141 scrimmage yards. That's an average of 133.8 yards per game. But one RB had a better average. Name that player.
Dalvin Cook with 137.0 in just 14 games

Which QB had the most all-purpose yards (passing and rushing)?
Desean Watson had 5267 total yards, 200 more than Mahomes and 300 more than Josh Allen.

Which QB had the most turnovers (interceptions and fumbles)?
Carson Wentz had 25 in just 12 games.

Travis Kelce and Darren Waller were the only 2 TE to have over 1000 scrimmage yards. Who ranked 3rd?
T.J. Hockenson with 723

Travis Kelce had 11 TD. Name the only other TE to have 11 TD.
Robert Tonyan

Stefon Diggs led all WR with 1535 receiving yards. That's an average of 96.0 yards per game. Name the WR who averaged better.
Davante Adams averaged 98.1 in 14 games

Maybe I will find more....

The benchmark for RB is generally considered 20 touches per game. Only 5 RB averaged 20 touches or more per game. I already gave you Derrick Henry (24.8) and Dalvin Cook (25.4) above. Name the other 3.
James Robinson (20.6), Josh Jacobs (20.4), and David Montgomery (20.1)

I got the Wentz one right. Good thing I didn't know he only played 12 games!

Well I blew the first ones, only ones I got was the TE TDs, and the rushing yards per game.

Here I'll go with
James Robinson
Josh Jacob's
And Zeke

Oops. Actually, I didn't scroll down far enough. :L
CORRECTION: there were 7 RB who averaged 20 touches or more per game. So my question above answered 5 of the 7. Name the other 2. And yes, I was shocked at one of them.
Christian McCaffrey 25.3 (in 3 games), Joe Mixon 23.3 (in 6 games), then the aforementioned Robinson, Jacobs and Montgomery

Aww...those dudes don't qualify. Lol. There should be a minimum total touches or snaps or something to cut off those outliers.

Got around to pulling all of the DEFENSIVE stats.

So if you rank all the teams by (1) yards allowed, (2) points allowed, (3) turnovers and (4) sacks, then average those four ranking categories.
Name the top 5 defenses from 2020.
2.3 Steelers
3.5 Rams
4.8 Washington
5.0 Saints
5.8 Buccaneers

#3 got me as well!
knew they had a great year by their recent standards, but didn't think it would be top 5 across all of those metrics

Found some interesting stats.

Which teammate was better from weeks 10 to 17 (the last 8 weeks) last season (2020)...

Antonio Gibson vs J.D. McKissic
McKissic had 117.8 points to Gibson's 96.9

Jonathan Taylor vs Nyheim Hines
Taylor 151.4 points to Hines' 108.5 but worth noting Hines was the 9th-best RB in that span.

Josh Jacobs vs Kenyan Drake (who is now a Raider)
Drake by .1 point (107.1 vs 107)

Adam Thielen vs Justin Jefferson
Jefferson had 157 points to Thielen's 123. Thielen was the 12th-best WR in that span and also missed 1 game.

Dionte Johnson vs JuJu Smith-Schuster
Dionte had 142 points to JuJu's 119.

Tyler Lockett vs D.K. Metcalf
Lockett had 108.9 points to Metcalf's 103.5.

I got em all except Gibson v McKissic. But shocked that Drake getting the easy production off of Murray's RPO's was only 0.1 ahead of Jacobs grinding away under Carr's very best Alex Smith impersonation.

This one is a little more involved:

Over the last 3 seasons, 4 RB have averaged over 90 scrimmage yards per game but not more than 95 in that span. All 4 average less than 20 touches per game.

3 of the 4 are being drafted (on average) in the first 16 picks overall. This mystery 4th RB is a late 3rd round, early 4th pick.

Any guesses who the 4 are?
Barkley 94.9; Chubb 94.6; Aaron Jones 93.2; and the RB drafted later than these 3 is Chris Carson 91.4
