Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s “out there” for today — Thursday, October 20 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks 7th In PFF’s Receiving Corps Rankings
After the first six weeks of the season, Pro Football Focus revisited its rankings of all 32 receiving corps across the NFL. The rankings not only include wide receivers, but tight ends considering their value in today’s pass-happy offenses.
Seattle finished seventh on the list with its group of Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham. Here’s what author Michael Renner said about the Seahawks’ ranking:
Starters: WR Doug Baldwin, WR Jermaine Kearse, WR Tyler Lockett, TE Jimmy Graham
Doug Baldwin is consistently one of the most efficient receivers in the NFL, with a quarterback rating when targeted this year of 131.9. A season ago he led the entire league with a rating of 142.8. The real key to this receiving corps, though, has been Jimmy Graham’s assimilation. He currently sits at third in the league in yards per route run, and has only one drop on the year.
The Patriots (Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Rob Gronkowski, Martellus Bennett), Redskins (Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, Jamison Crowder, Jordan Reed) and Arizona (Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, Jermaine Gresham) are the top three corps on the list.
