    Dak's targets on 3rd down

    I saw a tweet showing that Carson Wentz had the best 3rd down completion percentage, so since I was bored, decided to see who Dak targeted on 3rd down. Here is the chart. Dez was his number 1 target and had the lowest catch % of any WR. So, as I have said many times before, Dez held this offense back and I am glad he is gone. Glad Brice Butler is gone, too.

    1st down percentage:

    Dez...1338 = 34%
    Witten...827 = 30%
    Beasley...829 = 28%

    And that's despite the fact that Fed's volume is higher and the yards to go is likely higher when they go to Dez (and therefore a harder conversion.

    So I'm other words, their rate of 1st down conversion was higher going to Dez than their other main targets. Which doesn't sound like a player holding them back to me. I'm fact he was their best bet getting the first down (not counting the much smaller sample sizes).

    I was gonna argue with you, Geng, but you seem to be having some serious issues right now and it doesn't feel right to pile on.

    * Brice Butler DAL WR 66.7

    * Ryan Switzer DAL WR 66.7

    * Dez Bryant DAL 63.8

    * Terrance Williams DAL WR 58.5

    * Cole Beasley DAL WR 55.6

    * Rod Smith DAL RB 47.4

    * Jason Witten DAL 41.3

    * Keith Smith DAL FB 40.0
    Did you lack those 3 Super Bowls?
