Dez Bryant: The Numbers That Point to a Breakout Year in 2012

Interesting read on why Dez could have a breakout year. Some notable points: - Averaging the total career yards for these players (including Irvin) prior to their breakout year, we come to 1468 yards. In the breakout year that follows, they average 1346 yards for the year. - Among the top ten receivers in 2011, (according to PFF’s Ratings) only Jordy Nelson had a lower receiving yards /TD’s ratio than Dez Bryant. Nelson caught a TD for every 84 yards of receiving, Bryant caught a TD for every 103 yards. Next closest was Calvin Johnson who caught a TD for every 105 yards. It’s worth noting that no other receivers were even close to these ratios. These ratios indicate very potent deep ball and red zone threats. And again, Bryant is second in the league in this metric among starting WR’s. - He scored 71 percent of the time Romo connected with him on a deep ball. That is by far the best in the NFL for 2011. Jordy Nelson was next closest, scoring on 46% of deep pass completions.
