Methodology

This campaign reveals the cost teams and fans had to pay per 3-pointer based on active salaries and home ticket prices during the 2021 regular season.

To discover how much each 3-pointer, point, and win cost the NFL franchises, 2021 active salaries were acquired from Spotrac.com. These salaries were then divided by each team’s total points, 3-pointers, and wins during the 2021-22 regular season to see how much each metric cost the teams.

This was then replicated for fan costs, where 2021 average ticket prices were utilized. The fan data was based on the assumption of a fan attending every home game of the regular season.

All figures were summed and ranked by the cost per 3-pointer, the highest at the top.
