† Statistics like WPA, REW and RE24 are computed from play-by-play data which is only complete from 1974 to the present.  From 1950-1973, the data is incomplete, though for most seasons only less than 20 games per season total are missing. Please see our page on data coverage for a full view of the data used to create these leaderboards.
