NFL Receptions/Catches

While we have the volume stat for receivers, running backs, and tight ends, receptions measure who is actually catching the balls thrown to them. After the volume, diving into the efficiency factor of it all is still key. While volume is still king, a guy like Mike Evans isn’t always the most efficiency when catching footballs. However, when he sees 15 targets in a game and catches eight, we don’t care about the efficiency when the fantasy points churn out. We bring an easy week-by-week display to show which players are making the best of their targets. You can filter by position, sort by week, see season averages, and also see where the players rank on their team’s depth charts. Peek to the right of the chart, and you will find the all-important touchdown number. Receptions vary on a week-to-week basis, and it isn’t always about volume. Going up against tough cornerbacks and secondaries can limit production. Patrick Peterson has a tendency of really shutting down WR1s, and we have seen wideouts struggle to get going against him. You might notice a few down weeks, but the schedule will indicate a reason right off the bat. Of course you could be like Amari Cooper and drop three or four balls a week, and that can weight down receptions. Game plans can change as well, so if a team decides to run heavy one week, maybe Julio Jones doesn’t see seven catches because Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman were running so well. Our exclusive lineups rating is also on the side, showing off who is elite, and who aren’t quite on par with the league’s best wideouts. This is a great way to rank wideouts within teams as well. I mean we know nobody is touching Antonio Brown on the Steelers, but who is rated higher between James Washington and JuJu Smith-Schuster?
