Wes Welker’s stats last season, coming off ACL surgery: 86 receptions, 848 yards – for a 9.9 average -, 7 TDs in 15 games. Wes Welker’s stats this season, with one game to go: 116 receptions, 1518 yards – for more than 12.5 yards per reception – and 9 TDs.
Steve Smith was held down statistically by the Buccaneers, but that’s because Newton kept hitting an open Brandon Lafell and others for the duration of the contest. He had just 1 catch for 9 yards but his 73-1308-6 on the season is the best he’s had since 2008.
Also having his best season since 2008, Brandon Marshall now that Matt Moore has gotten the ball to Brandon Marshall in a way Chad Henne was unable to do. Marshall has 77 catches, 1177 yards and 5 TDs this year but 6 of his 11 best games as a Dolphin in yardage have been with Moore, despite 6 fewer opportunities (18 vs. 12). He’s also scored much more frequently with Moore throwing to him.
Hit “Like” if you are a fan of one or more of these three perennial top receivers.
