Target Practice: Tracking opportunities in Patriots passing game for 2013 postseason
|01.22.14 at 2:57 pm ET|
Targets have been compiled by the NFL since the start of the 2009 season, and while it remains a vaguely imperfect stat – a badly thrown ball from a quarterback can often go against the record of the receiver as opposed to the quarterback ‘ it remains a good indication of the confidence level a passer might have in his pass catcher. Here’s a look at the target breakdown for the New England passing game for the 2013 postseason.
WR Julian Edelman: 16 catches on 24 targets
RB Shane Vereen: 7 catches on 14 targets
WR Austin Collie: 5 catches on 7 targets
WR Danny Amendola: 3 catches on 6 targets
TE Michael Hoomanawanui: 3 catches on 4 targets
WR Aaron Dobson: 2 catches on 3 targets
TE Matthew Mulligan: 1 catch on 1 target
WR Matthew Slater: 0 catches on 1 target
WR Kenbrell Thompkins: 0 catches on 3 targets
