When you are doing something no other WR is doing it’s significant. Especially significant when your QBs suck. He’s doing something no other WR has done the last two years and I’d argue not many top end WRs have a worse group of guys throwing to him.
TDs are an issue because guys like Teddy literally miss him wide open in the end zone or don’t see him streaking down the field for potential TDs because he’s looking for the check down. His TD total would be fine. And Julio Jones has long been considered a top 3 WR in the NFL even without the touchdowns.
Does this hold water per your circles?
I'm wondering if this could facilitate Jimmy G to NE somehow.
49ers could get an additional pick from NE so Bridgewater's value in said scenario could be a 3rd/4th.
NE: Jimmy G
SF: Teddy Bridgewater, NE 3rd
CAR: SF 4th?
