In Year 3, while there is a ways to go for Darrius Heyward-Bey to be considered among the NFL's elite receivers, he is at least competitive with the rest of his draft class and has put up respectable numbers.

With 51 receptions for 775 yards and three touchdowns, Heyward-Bey will become the first wide receiver to lead the Raiders in receptions and yardage since Ronald Curry (55 receptions, 717 yards) in 2007.

His rate of receptions per target is up to 56.9 percent, and while still plagued by the occasional dropped pass, they are becoming more infrequent, with five in 14 games.
