TakeYouToTasker 2.0

[As we move through the off-season, We thought it might be good to have threads dedicated to position groupings so as to better keep track of what is going on with each. As always, you are free to start your own thread on any subject. We just ask that if you do, cross post it to the respective [positional grouping] thread for ease of reference by others.]

 

Two prongs:

 

Statement:  this is the best group the Bills have had since the Reed/Lofton era.  Will be tough to best a group with two “no doubt” category HOFers, but this assembly has *a lot* of their best years ahead of them.  Sky’s the limit, and it’s fun to dream.

 

Question:  how does this group rank against the rest of the NFL currently?

I was wondering this myself tonight actually. From some quick analysis, which is based only on receiving yards, the Bills WR squad is #2, behind Dallas.

 

The following goes through Week 4.

 

Overall, the Bills rank #2 in Passing yards. The top 10:

Of those Passing Yards, the Bills rank #2 in those yards going to the WR position. The top 10:

This is the #1 spot for passing yards that go to WRs. The top 10:

And the bottom 3, because OMG:

Looking at individual performances within the different teams WR groups, I will show the top 10 teams based on Yards to WRs. The 1-7 across the top header represents the number of WRs with receiving yards. "1" is the WR with the most yards on their team (not necessarily a teams #1 WR on the depth chart):

The green cells represent all values where the where the yards exceed what the Bills WR# put up. No team below MIN had a WR in any group that outperformed their Bills counterpart (so I left them out of the screenshot). In WR groups 1 and 5, the Bills WR led the category.

 

For example, these are the Bills WRs, represented by the #s 1-6:

So, Diggs, our #1 performer on the team by yards, is tied for the most in the league against all other teams #1 performer.

Our #2, Beasley, has the 5th most yards of all teams 2nd leading receiver.

Our #3, Brown, has the 3rd most yards of all teams 3rd leading receiver.

Our #4, Davis, has the 4th most yards of all teams 4th leading receiver.

Our #5, McKenzie, has the 1st most yards of all teams 5th leading receiver.

 

The above is pretty incredible IMO. The front office went out and got the right WRs and they are also being used effectively on game day. You can tell that these WRs love playing with Josh. And Josh puts it up there and lets guys make plays. This is definitely the most talented and fun group of WRs we have had since the Super Bowl days.

 

Some of the other very good WR groups in the league:

Diggs is also great at grabbing a few extra YAC every play.  He had 2 or 3 plays against Seattle where it didn't look like he'd get much and he ended up going for 6-10 yards.  Sneaky elusive.

One of the guys I watch the games with kept saying how it looked like no one wanted to tackle him. He has a way of slowing down in traffic that  seems to make defenders afraid of over pursuing and getting burned. Meanwhile they follow him downfield for an extra 6-10 yards.

Right one play looks like Diggs slowed down and the defender and had lots of YAC  on that play I think.
