I'm impressed that Avant didn't drop a pass this season.
As for Cruz and the other wr's who dropped a lot of passes its clear since they are targeted majority of the time they will have more chance of dropping passes.
I always thought Nicks had better hands out of the two, not saying Cruz doesn't have good hands, but he tends to look up field before the ball gets to his hands.

Can you put column titles? This means nothing. just a bunch of number

It's definitely a negative for Cruz but not all defining for any of them

And Cruz is dropping over 12% of the catchable balls....

Its no wonder this organization has put the priority on Nicks.

Cruz drops balls, Nicks can't play a full season. Every player has a downside

I tried 3 times. I even tried to past it on top separately







Just click on the link, it's easy to read.

See I even tried to post just the rank, name, team, targets, catches, drops, catchable drop rate, in this post and it still won't show up.

Not sure why this comparison is being made, Nicks didn't even play the same amount of games.

It's the tyranny of numbers which never tell the full story. Cruz has dropped a lot of balls, the flip side is he's lead the team in both years he's played.

Cruz' down side is he drops too many catch-able throws, and he'll stop going for the ball to avoid contact.

Then again, when you go for some of Eli's throws you end up like Kevin Boss.

I'm not convinced he's trying to avoid contact, but he does take his eyes off the ball

Well are you going by % or total drops? Total drops, Nicks is tied for 5th. By %, Cruz is not one on the worst 10...

Hi NY,
i believe Avant is always close to the top in fewest drops

Nicks definitely has the bigger hands of the 2, what are they 4xls or somethin lol. not worried about these guys at all except maybe Nicks missing a few games a year.

i think it is to avoid contact but not in the way it sounds.. more like trying to make the first guy miss, he doesnt get aligator arms when defenders are around

because they are comparing %, not total number of drops.

Nicks had a bad catch to target ratio. Cruz had a lot of drops.

It would be nice if we can stop making Cruz/Nicks comparisons constantly.
