Sig Stats: First Downs & Touchdowns — WRs

But fear not because we’re getting our collective heads around them now, and with that in mind we’re bringing you a new collection that deals with the quality of catches a receiver makes. You know, those that go for either a first down or touchdown.

Check out the table below that breaks down which receivers in 2012 had the most combined first downs and touchdowns. Once done with this, click over to see how we’ve taken it even further by looking at the most as a percentage of their targets, and the most as a percentage of the routes they ran.
