Wide Receiver (WR) Receptions

After we see the type of volume a receiver has, catches measure the efficiency of those targets. Catching 60%+ targets and higher is ideal, because only catching half of your targets is a damper on production. We don’t get points per targets, but we do for receptions, and seeing how many catches a wide receiver pulls in is worth noting. PPR formats this is a crucial stat, because guys like Golden Tate and Adam Thielen rely on racking up receptions due to the lack of touchdown upside. The depth chart number shows where they rank in their own offensive unit, alongside their rating based on us. The depth chart order is important to see which wideout is making the most of their targets within an offense. WR2 and WR3 can still be productive in a pass-heavy offense, as we have seen become popular over the last few seasons.
