## 2018 PLAYER EXPECTED PASSING

*Last Updated 10/30/2018*

Here's Matthias' post that explains this metric.

**Attacking Third**: Passes taking place int the attacking third of the field, **Middle Third**: Passes taking place int the middle third of the field, **Defensive Third**: Passes taking place int the defensive third of the field, **Passes: **Count of attempted passes.** %: **Percentage of attempted passes completed, **Exp%**: Expected completion rate, **%Diff**: The difference between the actual and expected pass completion rates. **Vertical:** The average yards down the field the ball is advanced per completed pass. Positive numbers mean that the player moves the ball up the field on average, negative means they move it backwards on average.
