Here is an interesting stat: there were 6 players with 100+ receptions this year, and all but one had 6 TD's or less.

There were 9 players with double digit receiving TD's, and seven of them were in the 80-100 reception range.

I honestly don't know what to take from that, other than maybe the 100+ guys were more possession receivers? Only Megatron and AJ averaged over 13 YPC in this group, while over half of the 80-100 reception group averaged over that number.
