How to Query:

For access to the NFL player-level database use the syntax: game reference:parameter.
Where game game references are any combination of t, o, p, P, n and N (for team, opponent, previous game, previous matchup, next game and next matchup respectively). Here are a few examples:
To see how players do when they have more than 35 rushes use the SDQL: 35 < t:rushes
To see how players do after rushing for more than 100 yards and 2+ TDs use the SDQL: 100 < p:rushing yards and 2 <= p:rushing touchdowns

To access the team's performance from the player-level query page use the syntax: Team:game reference:parameter.
To see players do after accounting for more than 90% of their team's rushes use the SDQL: 0.9 * Team:p:rushes < p:rushes
To find players who had a rush and a reception of over 50 yards use the SDQL: 50 < longest rush and 50 < longest reception

For data visualization queries, you need to specify the parameters to plot as well as the restrictive conditions.

Scatter Plots require the SDQL syntax: x, y @ conditions. For example:
To plot receiving yards vs rushing yards for Cowboys players in 2013 use the SDQL: rushing yards, receiving yards @ team = Cowboys and season = 2013
Tp break this down by player, just add ` and name` to the SDQL: rushing yards, receiving yards @ team = Cowboys and season = 2013 and name

Histograms require the SDQL syntax: x @ conditions. For example:
To plot the distribution of individual rushing yards for all NFL player this century use the SDQL: t:rushing yards as Rushing Yards @ 2000 <= season

Box Plots require the SDQL syntax: x @ groups . For example :
See the distribution of passing yards for each QB in 2013 use the SDQL: passing yards @ name and season = 2013
