I think there may be a perception problem here:
Percentage of attempts AJ targeted:
I left off 2007 and 2011 because AJ missed substantial time.
That is a flat line the entire time AJ and Schaub have worked together.
I agree with TPN that trust is key to Hopkins' season but I wouldn't look for a lot of targets being pulled from AJ.
Not as a prediction but I looked at AJ's rookie numbers and it is incredible he got 976 yards with Carr at QB and a passing attack with a whopping 2600 yds.
