If wide receiver were a sex position it would be reverse cowgirl. It’s simultaneously the most fun and also extremely productive, birthing league championships for those who make it their focus. Still, there’s a lot we don’t know about WRs. For instance, we didn’t know how many targets WRs were getting until fairly recently — and now we know that targets are the lifeblood of fantasy scoring. I’m happy to report that now we can add a few interesting stats into the “things we do know” side of the ledger: air yards and air yards per target.
