Pro Football Reference has added Fantasy Points and Touches as search criteria in the Player Streak Finder. These additions allow users to search for the most impressive streaks of fantasy dominance and/or high usage since 1960 (the first season for which we have full player game logs for skill positions). We'd like to thank our friend Scott Pianowski for passing along this suggested addition.
The standard Fantasy Points are calculated as:
Passing Yards: 1 point per 25 yards passing
Passing Touchdowns: 4 points
Interceptions: -2 points
Rushing Yards: 1 point per 10 yards
Rushing Touchdowns: 6 points
Receiving Yards: 1 point per 10 yards
Receiving Touchdowns: 6 points
Fumble Recovered for a Touchdown: 6 points
2-Point Conversions: 2 points
Fumbles Lost: -2 points
For DFS players, DraftKings Points and FanDuel Points are also available as sorting options.
Touches are calculated by adding up rush attempts, receptions, kickoff returns & punt returns.
These new additions allow users to get some perspective on the dominant fantasy streak Devonta Freeman is on. Thursday's game was his fourth straight with 25+ Fantasy Points. That makes him the first RB to do that since LaDainian Tomlinson, who had an eight-game streak in 2006.
Or if you search for streaks with 35+ DraftKings Points (which rewards a point per reception), you can see that Freeman has matched a record, becoming just the third player since 1960 with 35+ DraftKings Points in four straight games (and yes, we acknowledge this is an anachronism since DraftKings didn't exist the last time this happened, but this shows just how rare Freeman's performance streak is).
Similarly, Freeman has tied the record for consecutive games with 29+ FanDuel Points.
Finally, with Touches added to the streak finder, you can now search for things like the longest streaks of games with 15+ touches this season.
We hope you enjoy these new features and, as always, please let us know if you have any comments or questions.
