Steelers Passing Locations: Receivers Through Week 3

With ten days between the Steelers games this week, I wanted to provide the other side of the coin to my Steelers Quarterback Passing Locations, looking at some of Pittsburgh’s receiving data for the regular season thus far. Thanks to Thomas Mock for his great article that helped me learn much of what I’m using today. Couple notes before we jump in. All yardage referenced are air yards from the line of scrimmage. Bats at the line of scrimmage, spikes, and clear throwaways are removed.

Let’s start with the dots of the three most targeted players: wide receiver Diontae Johnson (32 total targets, 21 receptions), tight end Pat Freiermuth (20 targets, 11 receptions), and Chase Claypool (16 targets, 11 receptions).
