Not sure if this has been listed yet/before - but I was studying our stats [yes, I know - very sad], and I noticed something quite peculiar, at least to me.
As a former Offensive Coordinator, I was always keen to know not only who was productive but what, i.e. package, formation, personnel grouping etc.
This year, we've had 4 players share the 3rd WR spot - Moore, Gaffney, Matthews and Naanee and I looked at their stats.
Moore 4 - 83 - 20.8 - 1td
Gaffney 4 - 68 - 17.0
Matthews 3 - 55 - 18.3
Naanee 1 - 19 - 19.0
total 12 - 228 - 18.8 - 1td
Now - comparing these to our starters
Hartline 62 - 925 - 14.9 - 1td
Bess 61 - 778 - 12.8 - 1td
Now.. TD's aside [it's shocking yes] Is it only me who finds this quite interesting in that.. literally whomever [old, young, rookie, injured, catching issues] we have lined up at the 3rd WR spot has in fact been pretty productive from an Avg per catch standpoint.??
The 3 WR set was always my favourite when I coached as it put the defense in conflict - they either have to take a LB out of the box to cover the slot, or bring a Safety down to cover the slot... either way, you create holes.
Anyway... I thought I'd share
