A lot can change in the NFL over the course of three years. Players get older and less productive, quarterbacks get replaced, new offensive systems are implemented.
But despite the high turnover rate of both players and coaching staffs in today’s NFL, some players are able to withstand the test of time by producing reliable stat lines year in and year out.
In addition to the 2011 target analysis, we put together a more detailed target report that stretches back over the last three seasons. The purpose is to get an idea of which current NFL pass-catchers have been producing at a high level for a long duration of time.
GM: Games played
YPR: Yards per reception
Rec/G: Receptions per game
Yds/G: Yards per game
25+: Receptions of 25 or more yards
