    Top WR/TE's sorted by Yards.

    This is all WR/TE's with over 10 catches sorted by Drop %

    Interesting statistics.

    Drop % = drops/catchable balls
    where 'catchable balls' = catches + drops

    I'll give Lilly a pass since he's a true freshman. Just this year though.

    I assumed that 'catchable balls' was catches + drops so then its just drops/catchable balls.

    I didn't realize it calculated catchable balls and/or drop%.

    But the drop% really doesn't seem right. Unless the number it gives is not a percentage, but rather a decimal. I would believe that my WR Gallon drops 35% of the balls I throw his way. For reasons that I can't seem to understand...

    They just added the number of catches and drops, and then divided drops by that number.

    Sorry for not clarifying - Drop % was a column I added and that was how I calculated it. To me, it makes the most sense. I know that may seem ridiculous that Gallon is dropping about 1/3 of the balls you're throwing to him, but honestly thats whats happening.

    Oh okay, that's how you determined 'catchable balls'.

    It does make sense depending on how the CPU awards drops. Sometimes they don't give credit for it and sometimes it registers a drop when the defender swats it.

    Like I said, I believe that Gallon drops a third of the balls I throw his way. Mainly getting jarred right after the catch.
