Each individual rush is considered on it's own, and measured by it's "success." A run is considered successful if it gets 40% of the yardage needed to move the chains on first down, 60% of the yardage needed on second down, and 100% of the yardage needed on third or fourth down. This is a much more accurate overall picture of how well a running back does in a game than just the total yardage or ypc averages because it ignores big run outliers that can skew those kinds of stats

*That run is considered a success by this metric, but was by no means a success because he lost a fumble on the play.
By far CJ's most successful outing of the season. Good thing he only got 16 carries.
I am still a little blown away that LenDale only got two carries. I told him today on Twitter that we are leading the campaign to get LenDale more carries. I think smash should come up with a button.
