I think I'd find a way to give him a raise. He's just outstanding.

Next Gen Stats wrote:
1. Xavien Howard
Miami Dolphins · CB

Passer rating allowed: 46.5
Catch rate allowed below expectation: -6.8%
Tight window pct: 21.6%
Target rate: 18.2%
Average separation: 2.8 yards
Targeted expected points added: -34.5 (best in NFL)

It should come as no surprise that the league leader in interceptions (10) landed atop this list. Howard was effective in all areas and might have received a boost from Miami's decision to move him off the line of scrimmage last season. After spending nearly 70 percent of his coverage snaps in press coverage in 2019, Howard pressed opposing receivers just 32.2 percent of the time in 2020, and it produced excellent results. Only Marcus Peters was more effective in press coverage last season, with Howard finishing second to the Ravens CB (-20.6) in targeted EPA on such throws at -16. Some teams opted to challenge Howard deep and learned that was also a bad decision. He recorded four interceptions on deep targets, the most in the NFL in 2020, and finished with a targeted EPA of -17.4 on such targets, the lowest rate in the league. These numbers fall in line with a demonstrated history of success downfield, too. Howard hasn't allowed a deep passing touchdown as the nearest defender since 2017, intercepting seven passes on deep targets and allowing a grand total of just four receptions for 186 yards on 35 deep targets since the start of the 2018 season. Howard Island might not be a thing yet, but the information above suggests he was worthy of the nickname in 2020.


Just Missed the top 10: Jerome Baker
Miami Dolphins · OLB

Baker was excellent in almost every category, posting a catch rate allowed below expectation of -11.1 percent and a targeted EPA of -19.3. One requirement eliminated him, though: tight window percentage. Baker missed the minimum by 2.5 percentage points with a 12.5 percent rate.

Kyle Crabbs on the Locked On Dolphins podcast pointed out yesterday that in the group of players who just missed the top 10, Jerome Baker was in the group and if it weren't for one metric (I don't recall what it was) he would have scored in the top 5. Baker needs to be extended IMO.

It was the "tight window percentage" and he was off by only 2.5 percentage points. I posted it in the same post. Just scroll down a little further in blue.

Why are their rumors of trading him? Lockdown corners are needed in the NFL.

Because we have an overinflated financial black hole from Dallas playing opposite of him. I’ll be pissed if the Davie suits find a way to keep Byron Jones and not X.
