Week 1 of the XFL is in the books and we’re ready to dig into the statistics. Today we’ll take a look at the pass catchers. No single receiver topped 100 yards, but there were plenty of passes thrown in Week 1 of the XFL. The Sea Dragons and Roughnecks with Ben DiNucci and Brandon Silvers at quarterback were the leaders in pass attempts and yardage, which translated into a lot of opportunities for their pass catchers.

The quarterback play wasn’t great and it’s not going to ever be, but teams didn’t have any preseason games and have been thrown together fairly quickly. There will be better quarterback play and with so many targets up for grabs, receivers are going to start having big games.

Top 5 leaders in receptions are:

Jahcour Pearson, WR, Sea Dragons, 12 receptions
Deontay Burnett, WR Roughnecks, 8 receptions
Blake Jackson, WR, Sea Dragons, 8 receptions
Sal Cannella, TE, Renegades, 7 receptions
Landen Akers, WR, Brahmas, 7 receptions

Top 5 leaders in receiving yards are:

Jahcour Pearson, WR, Sea Dragons, 95 receiving yards
Deontay Burnett, WR, Roughnecks, 90 receiving yards
Jeff Badet, WR, Vipers, 81 receiving yards
Andrew Jamiel, WR, Guardians, 80 receiving yards
Josh Gordon, WR, Sea Dragons, 74 receiving yards
