Kelvin Benjamin Is The NFL’s Clutchest Receiver

Recommended Posts

From FiveThirtyEight:

"According to TruMedia, Benjamin’s been thrown to on 30.6 percent of the fourth-quarter routes he’s run. That’s tops in the NFL over the course of his career. Factor in his league-leading touchdowns-per-route average (0.034) and eighth-best yards-per-catch average (16.3), and Benjamin produces more offense every time he goes out for a late-game pass than anyone else on the planet."

This is not me trying to poo on the guy, he's been really solid this year and I have been happy with his production thus far, but do those stats take into account Garbage time stats as well?

I can remember numerous times last year and his rookie year in which Benjamin didn't do a whole lot in the first 3 quarters, only to have him go off when the other team was winning or in prevent defense. It's the same for Allen Robinson who padded his stats quite a bit in garbage time throughout his career.

It would be looking at every other receivers "garbage stats" as well though if we're only looking at 4th quarter passes.

That's why I mentioned Allen Robinson specifically as well. Blake Bortles puts up elite numbers at QB when the game is out of reach. Allen Robinson is the main beneficiary of that.

We haven’t had garbage time this year. Even vs the Saints we still had a shot into the 4th quarter.

Did Kelvin hurt his knee? The DFS world is already talking about CMC value with kelvin out.

Of course he hurt his knee. He almost got it broke in half several games ago. He will probably be dealing with this issue on and off for a while.
