The answer could be found in Roddy's stats from last year, this year (I hope), and 2012. As long as the Falcon's O-line and run game doesn't change much this year or next. I would say that Miles Austin's stats from '09 and 11 would make a good case study, but I think the run games will be much different in those two years. Fitzgerald doesn't make a good example because of extra variables such as the O-line and QB play degrading.

I'll take a ridiculous amount of targets and a lower catch rating over a high catch rating with 60% as many targets. Most of the top wide receivers seem to fit this category, though admittedly that's because there aren't a whole lot of teams with two good ones.
Sums it up nicely!
