WR targets for Vandy game


I'll be honest.  I'm not sure why I am still doing this.  I can always tell when Ole Miss sucks because I start digging into stats.  The problem with this team is there are very few stats.

A quarter of the way into the season, it's becoming clear that Donte Moncreif isn't there yet.  I'm not sure if he's getting open, but can't finish the catch, or if he's great in practice and the QBs rely on him or what, but with a catch rate of 38% and only 5.1 yards per target, he's killing us.  Add to that, he has more targets than anyone else, and it's doubly bad.

Moncreif was targeted 6 times in the Vandy game and only came up with the one catch in garbage time.  I really hope he comes around, but I'm afraid that it's clear that Ja-Mes Logan should be our #1 option.

For Logan's part, he hauled in 3 catches on 4 targets.  I'm not sure if coverage was rolling to him or why he wasn't targeted more than that.  As an Ole Miss fan, I'm sure it's that the Vandy coaches came and read my glowing post of Logan and decided to double him up.

Other than that, there wasn't much from the Vandy game.  Jeff Scott caught all 4 of his targets for only 1 yard.  Also, it's becoming clearer that Febia Allen is a weapon in the passing game.  He caught both of his targets for 19 yards.  There hasn't been an incompletion thrown towards Allen yet this year.

Here is the raw data for the season sorted by number of targets.
