Statistical Breakdown: Receptions of 20+ Yards

I want to talk about the receivers that make the big plays. With receptions of 20+ yards (Rc20+), we can see who is making the plays. Some players have many Rc20+, but is because they run deeper routes, or because they are targeted way more often than others?  Here is the list of the top 30 returning players with the most receptions of over 20 yards. I list the amount of 20+ yard receptions, their total # of receptions, and the percentage (%) of their receptions that went for 20+ yards. Take note of the ones in blue as they really made the most with their opportunities catching the ball. With more targets, these guys could be absoultely lethal in 2014.
