Charter School: WR Targets

New, 7 comments
Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Overall

During the offseason, we wondered who would emerge as UB's pass catchers in a crowded receiving corp.

Over the past three games, passes thrown to receivers, (omitting passes to RBs, and including Devin Campbell as an RB for now) have shown there are four clear WR targets: Ron Willoughby, Matt Weiser, Collin Lisa and Marcus McGill.

That said, each receiver has been better in certain situations than others summarized below:

1st Quarter 2nd Quarter 3rd Quarter 4th Quarter
UB down 10 Weiser Weiser McGill Lisa
UB within 9 Willoughby Weiser McGill Lisa
UB Leading Willoughby RUN RUN Willoughby

1st down 2nd down 3rd down
Long yardage RUN Willoughby Willoughby
Medium Yardage McGill McGill Lisa
Short yardage Weiser McGill Willoughby
