2020 Passing Plus-Minus: The Search for Drew Brees' Successor

The King is dead. Long live the King.

This week, we're continuing our annual review of the passing game with our look at 2020 plus-minus stats. And for the first time in a while, we're searching for a new gold standard in the field of accuracy.

Passing plus-minus is a stat we annually track to help provide context to completion percentage. Given the location of a quarterback's passes, it compares his completion percentage in each area to historical baselines. This stat does not consider passes listed as "Thrown Away," "Tipped at Line," "Miscommunication," or "Quarterback Hit in Motion" by Sports Info Solutions charting.
