WR Draft Notes

The player note information given for wide receivers is largely useless. The only trait that you can learn about is how likely a player is to be penalized.

  • Known to attract flags = Penalty – Undisciplined
  • Typically avoids getting flagged = Penalty – Normal
  • Almost never penalized = Penalty – Disciplined
