Scenario Alexander

Is it just me or does it strike you as curious that our default number 1/2 receiver, Danario Alexander, has been taking the second most snaps of any receiver, plus special teams play, and isn't targeted more efficiently? He is a definite threat in the red zone (see 19 yard leaping back shoulder touchdown against Giants in week 2), down the field in any capacity (see catches against Chargers, Broncos, and 49ers last season, plus Giants and Redskins this season), and across the middle (see first catch against Redskins last week where he drug multiple Skins DB's for a 20 yard gain). 

It makes sense then to assume that a player with as much knee damage and possibly limited snaps as he has, but also a player with the most yards of any Ram receiver even after being inactive week 1, should be targeted far more often in the situations that put him in a position to benefit the team most. That has not been the case. The skewed stats used by other writers on this site show DX having a "disastrous" catch rate of 34.8%, however that doesn't take into account catchable targets, which would put his catch rate much higher. He has the fewest drops of any active receiver at 1. He only has two red zone targets, one for a TD and the other would have been a sure TD had the ball not been batted at the line. His only dropped pass over 20 yards was last season against Seattle, which was a killer, but was a rookie mistake. It seems to me as though we need to take advantage of what DX offers us while we still can.
