Duke got 450 last year as the 5th option as a RB so I dont think its impossible especially the way Baker likes to spread the ball around.

We also didn’t have a WR go for 1500 yards.

I'm not thinking OBJ will do that. I think they will run the ball more than people think or realize especially when Hunt comes back. I'm not sure this is going to be a Falcons/Packers type offense that dedicates high targets to a WR like Jones/Adams.

Probably not 5 guys over 500, but I can easily see 4 guys over 500 with 2 others in the 300 range.

OBJ- 1250

Landry- 900

Callaway- 600

Njoku- 525

Higgins- 450

RBs- 600

We have the personnel to run a crazy college spread offense and get away with it. Baker can just pick whatever matchup he likes and take advantage presnap. Obviously, not a good idea long term, but it will work while Baker develops his IQ.

Just to be clear..... This team very well could field the greatest offense ever statistically.   And a lot is going to depend on how we play.  Any way we slice it though, I think Baker cracks 5,000 yards.

The 2013 Broncos had as their top 5 receivers:

Demaryius Thomas WR 1430
Eric Decker WR 1288
Julius Thomas TE 788
Wes Welker WR 778
Knowshon Moreno RB 548

I expect OBJ to break 1,500 yards.

Landry is going to be good for 800-1,000

Callaway is the wildcard in my opinion.  I think he is going to be used to take the top off the defense more often than not, and as such will end up breaking 1,000.

If they continue to use Njoku as they did last year 650 is attainable.

I think the RBs will combine for over 600.

That will leave around 400 yards for the rest of the receiving corps for Baker to break 5,000 yards.   I have to agree with OTC on this one.  There is no way our 4th/5th WR is going to break 500 yards.

I think akron is on point. Pass heavy 5k can be done but we should run a good bit. Range of 3600 to 4200.

3x 50+ point games (NFL Record)

3x 40+ point games

76 total TDs (NFL Record)

Mahomes did it with less weapons.

If everyone stays healthy Mayfield could nudge 6,000

I like Robinson with are new offensive coordinator plus with fell for a blocking tight end we could be devastating to light speed rushers of the edge in the run game

My translator tells me you meant to say, "I like Greg Robinson. With our new Offensive Coordinator plus Darren Fells as a blocking tight end, we could be devastating to smaller edge players in the run game."

 

Darren Fells is not here anymore. We cut him.

And if our defense is total crap.

I'd like some nice leads at half that our run game keeps the scoring going and our defense keeps the opposition from getting close. If Mayfield gets close to 6k we are in shootouts every week.That's over 370 yards per game.
