YAC

Meaning

Yards after catch

YAC is an acronym used in football that refers to the amount of yds a player gains after catching the ball. Although it is an acronym, it is pronounced as "yack."

YAC yards are recorded in order to measure the ability of a player to break and/or elude tackles to gain yards. The stat can also reveal how short or long the QB throws the ball since YAC yards usually come short to intermediate passes.

Example

"Harvin was great at gaining YAC yards cuz he was shifty and could run people over."
