“Yards per Carry” Calculator

The average of the RB’s card may or may not reflect his actual yards per carry. If the RB is slotted to spend a lot of time in “A” index, the card normally is downgraded and the opposite is true if the RB will spend a lot of time in “C” index. Factors such as hot or cold dice, defensive alignment, line changes associated with keying, blitzing, nickel or dime defenses will have either a positive or negative impact on the card’s performance. Attached is a “Yards per Carry” Calculator to estimate the runner’s average based off his card. If the RB has a “K” (breakaway run) in his “R” column, determine if he has a ‘1 or “2” in the “K” column of RPN 66. For example, Tony Dorsett’s card listed in “Top Rushing Performances” has 3 K’s on his card and a “1” in the “K” column associated with RPN 66. I would insert “3” adjacent to RB with a “1” @ RPN 66 in the All-Purpose Rusher (15-17-19) table. Finally, ensure all 36 numbers listed under the RB’s “R” column are entered into the calculator.

  1. Seems like a long time ago I remember someone posting am ‘expected’ percentage of plays for the different ABPA field situations (DGoal – 9, D10 – D30, etc.)… does anyone else remember those numbers? I also seem to remember something (APBA Journal??) about the percentage of time each Defensive line setting ‘should’ be used to achieve accurate APBA results (pretty much defining the ‘Game Engine’). Does anyone have those??
