A league-wide look at WRs/TEs and receiving yards per passing play: 3 Giants in the Top 15

Earlier today, we looked at the number of snaps each WR and TE in the NFC East had this season in which they went out on routes on passing downs.  Victor Cruz had the most yards per pass play, with 2.87 yards per passing play.Obviously, he has made the most of his playing time. With that in mind, I figured why not just take a look at the entire league?  So… Here you go.  Victor Cruz is 3rd.  In fact, three Giants are in the Top 15. The Cowboys’ Laurent Robinson is 10th.  The Top 15 contains some pretty good company (minimum of 150 snaps):
