    This is the guy we should be targeting most...

    Devin Aromashodu - Minnesota Vikings - 2012 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

    Devin Aromashodu remains without a preseason reception despite nine passes thrown in his direction.
    It's worth noting because Aromashodu's 33.3 percent catch rate last season was the lowest of any NFL receiver to play at least a third of his team's offensive snaps. Simply put, NFL receivers don't get any less effective....

    Going into camp and the preseason I was fairly certain Shodu would retain a spot on the team. He put up nearly 500 yards last season and already had an upper hand in "knowing the offense."

    But the numbers are just starting to pile up against him ... especially with the rising play of Stephen Burton. Sure, Shodu has a shot at being around while Simpson serves his suspension. But once Simpson is back, I think the spots will be eaten up by Harvin, Simpson, Jenkins, Burton and Wright.

    In the end, Aromashodu gets open. That at least lets our QB make a throw to give us a chance. We go nowhere when receivers can't get open.

    Last game Aromashodu had a couple rough breaks on sideline catches and a brutal PI non-call. If Webb gets those throws a foot or two more in bounds, Mush has two very nice medium-long balls and 80+ yards receiving, probably a TD.

    I say this preseason, keep feeding the guy the ball to see if he can actually produce or not.

    I would not be against this. It definitely is an odd stat they throw out when they talk about his number of targets and his number of catches, sometimes that can be more on the QB than anyone else obviously.

    I would like to see him show me he is a playmaker though. Hopefully he can do that in the next couple of weeks.

    Do the stats include the worm burners that McNabb threw at everyone's feet for the first 6 or so games of last year?

    If so the numbers don't mean as much.Even without McChunky you still have to consider that he was having Webb and a rookie in Ponder throwing to him. Not surprised he had a low percentage.

    He needs to steer clear or "Terrell Owen's extra buttery fingers popcorn" before games is all

    TO was 0-5 in his first game

    Did anyone watch the game? Joe Webb's throws were horrible. Both on the sideline were uncatchable. The one over the middle was even worse.

    Yeah, he was off on the med/long balls. He's a great athlete though, we have to find ways to get him on the field more.

    That is usually an indicator of poor route running. That is, if the quarterback is any good.
