500 IP or 50 decisions required for career rate statistics. For single-season leaders, we use the typical standards of PAs/Game, but set the game value to 100 games (rather than 154,162, etc), so players from all eras are represented in the leaderboards.

Statistics like WPA, REW and RE24 are computed from play-by-play data which is only complete from 1974 to the present. From 1930-1973, 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.
