Cody Parkey Kickoff Distance Tracker and Contest (!) Week 4 Edition

Sunday has arrived, and one of our most popular features is back once again.

You know what to do:

Tweet at me (@drewBbalis) before kickoff today guessing the number of touchbacks Parkey has AND the 49ers’ average starting field position on his kickoffs (far right column of the chart — sans brackets). 

Guessing the correct number of touchbacks is worth one point while predicting the right field position is worth two, so an example would look something like

(@drewBbalis 4, 22) 

That will be my official guess, and you are cordially invited to make yours before kickoff at 4:25 p.m.

One quick note: Field position will be rounded to the nearest whole number when totaling points (21.4 = 21, 21.5= 22). I have received a few questions about this, and hopefully it leads to more people earning points.

Right now, there is a three-way tie for first place with one point between @killakow, @gsteinhubl, and yours truly.

Some updated stats on Parkey that might help you with your guess:

  • 21 kickoffs in three games
  • 19 of those 21 kickoffs in the end zone
  • 15 of those 21 kickoffs for touchbacks
  • Average opponent starting field position of 20.57 or 20.6 if you will.

Here is your chart from the Jaguars game:
