Still unbelievable that both Decker and Demaryius were separated by only 3 targets. It is too bad Welker missed time with his concussions because he was on par with both of them as far as targets and receptions.

Demaryius Thomas became the first player in franchise history to post back to back 1400 yard seasons. In fact he and only Calvin Johnson have been able to go back to back in this category the past two years.

This group will drop some. Overall the three WR combined to post 28 drops on 382 targets for a drop percentage of 7.3%.

Hope you've enjoyed the tracker throughout the season. I'll revisit this at the end of the playoffs, hopefully when the Broncos will have earned their 3rd World Championship.
