B1G WRs dominate PFF's list of most valuable receivers in the nation
The B1G has its share of explosive wide receivers. A recent post by PFF College Football further validates that argument.
PFF College Football has Purdue’s David Bell as the most valuable wide receiver in college football, with Ohio State’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Garrett Wilson checking in at second and fourth, respectively.
PFF reached that conclusion using its Wins Above Average measure for the WR position:

Bell has amassed 75 receptions for 1,106 yards and 5 touchdowns this season. Smith-Njigba has totaled 59 receptions, 1,027 yards, and 5 touchdowns. Wilson has tallied 53 receptions along with 813 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Among that group, Bell and Smith-Njigba have 200-yard performances this season. Bell has two such games to his tally.
Purdue has a 6-4 overall record and is in third place in the B1G West. The Boilermakers host Northwestern this weekend (Nov. 20/12 p.m. EST/BTN).
No. 5 Ohio State will host No. 7 Michigan State for first place in the East. Ohio State leads the all-time series 34-15 and is on a five-game winning streak vs. Michigan State in the series.
