Breaking Down Bengals Receivers Targets And Receptions

During our weekly snap count postings, jim0ijk, one of our most veteran readers and commenters, asked how many times each receiver caught the football compared to how many passes each were targeted. Fortunately, we've got your answer. In order for us to chart the data however, first we have to show the season-long numbers and then we'll break them down per game and per receiver. A quick note: Targets simply mean times that a quarterback targeted a receiver. It doesn't include bad throws from the quarterback, great defensive players and it doesn't weigh a high-risk throw 20 yards from the line of scrimmage as opposed to a more high-percentage screen/dump pass that's roughly five yards from the quarterback. Also we're not going to chart
