ESPN Says Chambers Overrated at Wide Out


Chris Chambers is clearly one of the best wide outs in football, but that doesn’t stop ESPN’s KC Joyner from listing him as one of the most overrated wide receivers in football. Here are Joyner’s comments, listed on’s Insider section:

Chris Chambers

Chambers isn’t considered a great receiver, but his metrics indicate he wasn’t even a good receiver last year. Chambers had the lowest YPA (5.1) and success percentage (44.8) of any wide receiver in the NFL in 2006. He ranked no higher than 49th in YPA at any depth level, so he lacked production across the board.

Chambers was hampered by bad quarterback play, but 14 of his 24 missed pass plays last year were drops. Even if some of those other 10 passes had been completed, though, it still wouldn’t have brought his overall metrics back up to a respectable level.
