Yards after the Catch (YAC): 2016 NFL Season

This statistic measures the yards gained after a pass is caught by a receiver. The "yards after the catch" are the yards the receiver runs until he is either tackled down, run out of bounds, scores, or losses the ball.

Players with a high percentage of YAC compared to their total receiving yards are usually (but not always) running backs, or slot receivers because they get the short "screen pass" or "dump pass" and run for the remaining yards.
