So, back in the offseason, I took a stab at projecting how many catches each Titans player would end up with in 2013. Now that the Titans have played half their games, I thought it was worth updating that look, to see how the Titans actually had targeted their receivers.
The biggest question I faced in that post was, for the second straight season, who wasn't going to catch the ball? One of the things I try to do here is try to limit the extent to which I subjectively select sample sizes, in an attempt to get a truer picture of how things will play out. Thus, my looks at all sacks, or all interceptions. This is particularly important for catches because, looking individually, you could reasonably but optimistically project each player and end up with many more catches than it was likely the Titans as a team would have.
As it turns out, the Titans have in fact made those choices. They've thrown the ball a lot to some players, even more than I expected them to. They've neglected other players, even more than I neglected them to. Some players, they've even thrown the ball roughly as much as I expected them to.no comments
