NFL.com Ranks The Top QB-WR Duos
Using Next Gen Stats, Matt Harmon of NFL.com looked at the quarterback and wide receiver duos that produced the most in 2017.
Seattle's duo with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and wide receiver Doug Baldwin finished among the top-10 best in the league according to Harmon. Despite the Seahawks falling short of the postseason, Wilson and Baldwin both made trips to the Pro Bowl in 2018 and continued their establishment as one of the NFL's best combos.
Here's what Harmon had to say about the duo:
The Seahawks missed the postseason this year, but Russell Wilson and his top receiver were hardly near the top of the culpability list for that. Doug Baldwin is the master of creating space, as he averaged a whopping 3.24 yards of separation on his routes when Wilson released the football. Playing with the improvisational quarterback is a task that requires an extra layer of skill for pass-catchers, as they need to be ready to break off-pattern when he scrambles. Baldwin has made an art form out of it. Wilson was the lone quarterback to throw more than 100 passes (136) outside the tackle box in 2017. Almost 30 percent of the yards he gained on those throws went to Baldwin, for a passer rating of 106.9. The Seahawks head into the offseason with quite a few questions to answer -- but at least they have a franchise quarterback and passing-game anchor in place.
Pittsburgh's duo of Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown topped Harmon's list. Read
