Opponent adjustments for playing San Francisco boost Goff from 85 passing YAR to 126 passing DYAR. Goff had the most passing value, 73 DYAR, in the fourth quarter as the Lions tried to come back for the victory. Goff had 56 passing DYAR on passes up the middle, where the 49ers are at their strongest (7-for-12, 76 yards, and a touchdown).

1.Christian McCaffreySF209024/542063549DET
McCaffrey goes from 38 rushing YAR to 54 rushing DYAR when we add in opponent adjustments for the top-ranked Lions run defense. McCaffrey had a 65% "running back success rate." This is different from regular success rate because it counts two 4-yard gains on first-and-10 as successes. Regular success rate does not.
2.David MontgomeryDET159312/2200564511SF
Montgomvery had an 80% running back success rate. Over half his carries gained at least 6 yards with three gaining between 14 and 16 yards.
3.Gus EdwardsBAL32001/11601569KC
The Forgotten One.
4.Elijah MitchellSF4710/000550DET
5.Justice HillBAL3304/73403-1012KC
6.Isiah PachecoKC246814/4140-13-173BAL
The Ravens mostly bottled up Pacheco, as he had only two carries over 4 yards (5 and 6) after the first quarter. He also got stoned on both a third-and-2 in the first quarter and a fourth-and-1 in the second quarter.
7.Jahmyr GibbsDET124513/6110-23-3-20SF
Gibbs had the fumble, of course, and also three failed completions including a 3-yard gain on third-and-goal from the 6 that led to a field goal before halftime.
Five Best Wide Receivers and Tight Ends by DYAR

DYAR
Opp
1.Travis KelceKC111111610.5150BAL
This doesn't rank among the top Kelce playoff games despite catching 11 of 11 targets because so many of them were short. Six of his catches went for less than 10 yards, and half of those were what we call "failed completions" including a 9-yard gain on third-and-24 right before halftime. (That one's just a semi-failure, because it did get the Chiefs into field-goal range.) Includes 8 rushing DYAR for a 5-yard carry that moved the chains.
2.Jameson WilliamsDET232512.5149SF
This is mostly 32 rushing DYAR for Williams' 42-yard end around touchdown in the first quarter.
3.Marquez Valdes-ScantlingKC223819.0020BAL
4.Zay FlowersBAL5811523.0119KC
Flowers would have led the week with 50 receiving DYAR if not for his fumble at the goal line. He also gets -6 rushing DYAR for two carries that gained only 4 yards.
5.Sam LaPortaDET9139710.8016SF
LaPorta gets a bump from 7 YAR to 16 DYAR because the 49ers defense was very strong against tight ends this season.
