Here are the stats for the receivers through 7 games. Not too many surprises here but, as I tweeted earlier in the week, take a look at Jaron Brown whose 18 receptions have gone for 14 first downs and Martavis Bryant and Charone Peake who have combined for 7 catches, 6 of which have been explosive (16 or more yards).
Here’s a new stat that tells us what percentage of snaps a receiver has targeted in relation to his total number of snaps played. Watkins is way out in front, which is not surprising, but the interesting part for me is to see the low percentage of times Peake and Bryant have been targeted. I didn’t look this deep, but perhaps this was lower early on and has increased over the last few games. Perhaps that can be a project for next week. This table only includes players targeted 6 or more times.
