I think this is the first Rotoviz article I'm completely baffled with.
How can you show only WR Air yards without discussing the changes in other positions??
A few examples:
GB ranks 5th with available WR air yards by your article, however you totally ignored the arrival of Jimmy Graham who had over 700 AY last year in Seattle. will it affect the WRs? of course.
You also didn't account for Rodgers being injured, how did the team AY were before and after his injury?
Arizona ranks 2nd with available WR air yards by your article, Yet you didn't even mention the return of one David Johnson.
Which is effectively a WR2 in that offence, will his return affect the WRs? of course.
There are many more examples, my point is that you can't overlook the other positions and make conclusions about the WRs in a Vacuum.
