Above ranking is a conglomeration of answers to the following questions: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/varsity-numbers/2014/vn-2014-college-receiver-crop Link to the file for all WR's in the country: https://cdn2.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/2523014/RYPR_after_14_weeks.0.xlsx A quick glance at why Nelson was so low relative to his ultimate production (as far as I can tell): Low low LOW Yards Per Target/Completion (aside: maybe Sefo's low Yards/attempt this year isn't so much missing Richardson as it is featuring Spruce?) Despite the total #s, Spruce suffered from the fact that our passing game wasn't nearly as efficient as most of the offenses that featured top WR's. (S&P of 105, just a little bit better than average). Other WR #s: Fields: #250, 9.7 Yards Per Completion, only 6.1 per target. McCullough: #284, 14 YPC - 8.7/target D.D. Goodson: #317, 10 YPC - 6.5/target Bobo: #490, 9.4 YPC - 6.0/target My conclusions: Spruce is really good, Fields is also good. McCullough was effective. Bobo was very disappointing. We lose very little in DD. Offense needs to find a way to go deeper/be more efficient in the passing game. Such low Yards per Target gave us little room for error.
