I have downloaded stats for the recently completed 2014 NFL regular season from yahoo.com, cleaned the data, and saved in Excel and CSV formats. The files are located here. The column headers should be self-explanatory.
The Excel workbook has seven worksheets:
- QB: quarterback data.
- RB: running backs.
- WR: wide receivers.
- TE: tight ends.
- K: kickers. I have broken out attempted and made field goals by distance into separate columns for convenience.
- DEF: defensive stats by team.
- ST: special teams stats by team.
The same folder also has separate CSV files for each position, which may be more helpful if you are a coder.
