Player Receiving Big Plays: 2016 NFL Season

Though this is defined different ways on other sites, the list below counts the number of receptions by a receiver that resulted in a 25 yard gain or greater.  The league leaders usually have between 15 and 20 big plays per year, or roughly one or slightly more per game.  A “big play” counts the same if a receiver catches a deep ball, a running back catches a screen that results in a big play, a slot receiving catches a slant and picks up many yards after the catch, or a number of other receiving plays.
