The NFL wideouts a division ranking AFC EAST edition


A post by Sergeant Major Thor   about wideout corp rankings got me thinking about this  and i just wanted to dive in to this a whole lot further with it  so lets get started

key notes  

deep pass %  is The proportion of pass targets in which a receiver is greater than 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

catch rate is The proportion of passes targeted to a receiver that are caught.

 

i am excluding tight ends and WRs under 10 targets but will add in the receptions for a accurate catch per drop rate
