I wanted to take a look at the extent to which the Jets depended on Brandon Marshall a year ago. His 1,502 receiving yards led to almost a quarter of the Jets' offense. How did that rate relative to the rest of the league? Let's take a look.
I examined each team's leader in yards from scrimmage and the percentage of their team's yardage from scrimmage they produced. Marshall finished seventh according to my calculations. Interestingly, the positions of go to guys were fairly evenly split. I counted 15 wide receivers, 12 running backs, and 5 tight ends.
Here are the totals below.
