Washington State football has an impressive group of wide receivers in their Air Raid offense. Against Stanford, Dez Patmon was the standout, next week it will probably be someone else.

It seems like each week Washington State football has a different receiver from the Air Raid step up and be the main target. Saturday at Stanford Dezmon Patmon was quarterback Gardner Minshew‘s main target.

Big Picture

Seven different Washington State receivers have 23 or more catches. Additionally, six receivers have three or more touchdown receptions. Diving a bit deeper into the numbers, Martin is second in the PAC-12 and leads the team with 51 receptions. He is followed by James Williams (48), Dezmon Patmon (41), Easop Winston (35), Max Borghi and Jamire Calvin (28). All six of these players are among the PAC-12’s top 25 receivers.

Yardage is slightly different. Patmon leads the group with 578 (seventh in the PAC-12, he could break 1,000 yards in 2018), Martin trails with 473, followed by Winston (463), Williams (404), and Calvin (382). They can score too. Marin (7) and Winston (6) are second and third respectively in the PAC-12 for touchdown receptions. Williams, Patmon, Borghi, and Renard Bell are all tied for 15th place with three touchdown catches each.
