Yards Adjusted Completion Percentage

One "advanced stat" I developed a few years ago is the yards adjusted completion percentage (YACP). I began with the assumption that it is harder to complete longer passes. To reflect that I adjust each QB's completion percentage using an average completion percentage by pass distance to calculate the YACP. Two weeks into the season the list is headed by Lousville's Bridgewater in on top and Tyler Bray comes in at number 2. Brett Smith, Everett Golson and Zach Maynard also rank in the top 10 despite completing fewer than 70% of their passes overall. You can find the complete list here (click on yards adjusted to sort the list).
