    "This year, we're looking at the 13 routes with at least 400 targets to wide receivers and tight ends -- curl, out, slant, dig, screen, drag, deep cross, go/fly, post, broken play, flat, corner, and fade routes. Readers of previous years' articles will remember us covering comeback and seam routes, but those were significantly less common in 2018 -- comebacks fell from 373 to 251, and seams fell from 428 to 375. For what it's worth, the league still had a 30.0% DVOA on seam routes, so perhaps we'll see a resurgence in 2019."

    And fellow fade haters will like this from that piece:

    "Finally, we get to the fade, the other route likely to get fans tearing their hair out. Just 27 percent of fade routes were caught in 2018, the worst of any of the 13 routes we're covering. It joins screens and flats as the only three routes with negative DYAR on the year. It's not just red zone fades, either; fades from all over the field ended up with negative value. "

    James White on the curl and the out! Not 100% sure, but isn't he the ONLY RB on both those lists? o:

    Josh Gordon WINNER of the Dig and the Fade!!!
    Amazing for a shortened season.

    Other than that, the most surprising thing is the dearth of Patriots in the tables. Particularly surprising, IMO, was no Patriot making the top 25 in WR screens. I thought bb practically invented that play-ha ha.
