Premier League Usage Rates (Update: Includes Link for 2016-17)

For those interested, the links below have all the Usage Rate data for the 15-16 and 16-17 Premier League seasons. I've written about the metric here, here, and here. Usage Rate is an attempt to measure the influence each player has in a team's attack by looking at the percentage of a team's possessions he "uses", or has the final action of a possession, weighted by minutes played:

(Shots+Key Passes+Assists+Unsuccessful Take-Ons+Unsuccessful Passes)/
((Team Shots+Team UTO+Team UP)/(Minutes Played/Total Minutes))

Thoughts/suggestions/comments are all welcome.
