Some wide receivers just aren’t that great at accomplishing their main objective — simply catching the ball. PointAfter has calculated the drop rates for 94 wide receivers since the beginning of the 2014 season, all of whom have been targeted at least 25 times over that span and have played at least 25 percent of their team's snaps in 2015. Here are the wideouts with the 10 worst drop rates.
Which receivers are best at catching the ball? Using a modified version of Catch/Drop Rate Difference (CDRD), which is calculated by subtracting a receiver’s drop rate from his catch rate, but with increased weight on drop rate five-fold, here are the wideouts with the 10 best hands. To qualify here, they must have been targeted at least 80 times since the beginning of the 2014 season. That narrows the field down to 66 candidates, or roughly two receivers per team.
