Here’s how I’d rank the top 12 (the top three for each of the four teams in the division) wide receivers in the NFC East for 2020.

With that said, the NFL average for first down runs into a loaded box had an EPA of - 0.08 per attempt with a 41 percent success rate of the run, and the running backs averaged 3.9 yards per carry (YPC).
