A few years ago, Josh Hermsmeyer started a site called AirYards.com, where he tracks all of the air yards for NFL receivers.
But what about the XFL? Is there a site that offers air yards data for this new league?
Yes, there is.
It’s called The Action Network.
We have XFL air yards data thanks entirely to one of our writers, Tony Marquis, who took it upon himself to watch each snap from Week 1 and log the data for every single pass attempt.
This guy is a hero.
You can bet on the XFL at FanDuel, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $500.
2020 XFL Air Yards Data
A note about these statistics: I compiled these numbers by charting the games. They are unofficial statistics, but I stand by them.
If you compare my statistics to those in the box scores at XFL.com, you’ll notice a few discrepancies. For example: Renegades running back Cameron Artis-Payne was randomly credited with a 10-yard pass completion — even though he never attempted a pass — and he wasn’t credited for six rushing yards after a downfield holding call.
My numbers are unofficial, but they are almost certainly the most reliable XFL receiving statistics available. — Tony Marquis
