The Oklahoma State offensive attack is built around the passing game, and receivers James Washington and Marcell Ateman have done their part this season.
The two wideouts landed on Pro Football Focus’ list of the top five Big 12 receivers when targeted.

Washington ranks third, with Ateman hot on his heels in fourth place. Washington leads the conference with 645 receiving yards. Ateman has hauled in three scores and catches 74 percent of passes thrown his way.
Mason Rudolph certainly doesn’t need any extra help to excel at quarterback for Oklahoma State. But he’s throwing for an average 145.7 passer rating when he targets Washington or Ateman. They make an already great quarterback into a Heisman contender.
