Rivera says having Newton as a running threat has really helped the team's passing game.

interesting read yesterday from an inferior site...

No need to find a #2 WR, there's already one on the roster



Much has been made this year over the need to find a true #2 WR this offseason whether it be through the draft or free agency, with names such as Justin Blackmon, Alshon Jeffery, Dwayne Bowe, and Vincent Jackson thrown out there as targets to complement, and eventually replace Steve Smith. However after doing some research on AdvancedNFLStats.com (a fine site that you should bookmark if you haven't already) I have deduced that not only do we already have a fine #2 WR on the roster, we have someone that may be able to take the reigns from Smith as a #1 option in the near future. That man is Brandon LaFell.


.
.
.
SR: 60.5%, 8th in the NFL. Jordy Nelson, Colston, Lance Moore Welker, Mike Wallace, Avant, and Kevin Walter are the only WR that rank higher than LaFell.
YPT: 10.6, 7th in the NFL. He's been one of the best deep threats in the game this year. Smith ranked 5th with a 10.8 YPT for comparison's sake.
CR: 70.3%, 10th in the NFL. I believe that speaks for itself. While incompletions are subject to many factors, LaFell has been pulling balls down when they come near him.

SR=success rate (The proportion of plays in which a player was directly involved that would typically be considered successful)
YPT = yards per target
CR = catch rate

sure, he's benefiting from smitty on the other side, but to be fair naanee had smitty on the other side and well....

his CR is what is getting my attention.

that was the huge knock on him coming out of LSU and in his rookie year.

I hope he pans out as our #2.

Now a #1 he is not.

I still think Gettis will be #2 but this is LaFells chance to prove he's not just a blocking WR.

That catch where he came back for the ball was pretty sick.

He is definetly a starting caliber reciever in this league. He hasn't quite shown me enough yet to make me believe he can be an elite number one guy. Certainly hope he can of course. We gave him a lot of heat last year for dropping balls, but he catches just everything thrown his way this year.


Good job, JoJo. Starting spot well earned. Now show us you can earn the title f elite.
