Team Passing Question

I'm sure there are other people who've noticed this too, but team passing seems to be off in general on the numbers. Charger's receivers for example are projected to have nearly 500 more total yards receiving than Rivers is projected to pass for. The Eagles are projected for a similar situation, with more receiving yards than Vick has passing. I imagine its hard to project these numbers super accurately, but wouldn't this inflate receivers and is it just a byproduct of overestimating 4th/5th WR production?

We work to make the QB numbers come close to the receiving numbers, but remember that we're currently projecting more receivers than will actually play. Someone will get cut, someone will get hurt, etc.
