Wright only starting 5 games and coming in for slot duty works against your argument as he also beat your projections.
Hopkins is going to start and he is going to a team which threw for 700+ yards more than those teams.
The top two guys belong to the category of players drafted higher.
If you think that a guy drafted lower should perform as well as them, you might as well not drafting any player. Just take a guy off the street.
Wright, like I said, belongs to the slot category.
Many of those dump passes are just an extension of the run game.
Hopkins is not going to be used in that fashion here.
