Domination In Denver: Efficiency Leaders Through Week 5
Surprise tight ends Julius Thomas and Jordan Cameron round out the receiving Top 10. While Thomas has only been targeted 36 times, he’s made the most out of his opportunities, catching 75% of passes and adding over a point to the Broncos offense for every target.
1.04 NEP (net expected points) per target is an insane figure, one only exceeded by that of the Saints' Jimmy Graham (1.05 NEP). On his 27 receptions, Julius has averaged an eye-popping 13.3 yards, and has already scored six times.
It's been ten years since any Broncos tight end has had as many touchdowns in a season - Shannon Sharpe had eight in 2003.
