All targets and touches data is compiled from Pro Football Reference. Cornerback data is sourced via Pro Football Focus.


Note: I decided to include more players into the Targets and Touches format for the rest of the season. For simplicity,  cornerbacks who see at least 50 percent of the prior week’s snaps will be included.


Arizona Cardinals


Targets: Larry Fitzgerald (11, 12, 7, 8, 9, 14), David Johnson (5, 6, 4, 6, 6, 13), John Brown (3, 11, 16, 4, 7, 0), Michael Floyd (6, 11, 7, 3, 2, 7), Jaron Brown (2, 6, 5, 3, 5, 0), Jermaine Gresham (1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 4), J.J. Nelson (0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 7), Darren Fells (5, 2, 2, 0, 1, 0), Andre Ellington (1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1), Ifeanyi Momah (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Troy Niklas (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Brittan Golden (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Chris Johnson (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Hakeem Valles (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


Carries: David Johnson (12, 19, 17, 27, 22, 33), Chris Johnson (16, 2, 6, 0, 0, 0), Andre Ellington (1, 0, 1, 6, 5, 2), Carson Palmer (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 1), Stepfan Taylor (0, 0, 0, 2, 2, 0), Drew Stanton (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 0), J.J. Nelson (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 1), Larry Fitzgerald (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Larry Fitzgerald (3, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0), Michael Floyd (2, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), David Johnson (1, 1, 2, 1, 0, 0), John Brown (0, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0), Jermaine Gresham (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Darren Fells (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: David Johnson (2, 6, 1, 9, 7, 4), Chris Johnson (6, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), J.J. Nelson (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


CBs Thrown At (via PFF): Patrick Peterson  8, 4, 7, 1, 5, 4 (3-38-1, 2-24, 3-48, 0-0, 3-65, 4-54), Marcus Cooper 9, 5, 8, 2, 11 (8-94, 5-41, 4-106-2, 3-30, 0-0, 7-79)


Observations: David Johnson had 41 touches against the Seahawks and piled up 171 total yards. DJ is second in the league with 34 red zone opportunities, along with being third on the Cardinals in red zone targets (5.) Michael Floyd and J.J. Nelson each saw seven targets with John Brown inactive. Nelson isn’t particularly on the fantasy radar and Floyd’s inconsistency leaves him in the WR3 discussion.


Atlanta Falcons


Targets: Julio Jones (5, 7, 15, 6, 9, 15), Mohamed Sanu (5, 4, 3, 6, 10, 4), Jacob Tamme (8, 4, 2, 1, 3, 3), Devonta Freeman (0, 5, 3, 5, 5, 6), Tevin Coleman (2, 3, 4, 6, 2, 1), Aldrick Robinson (3, 2, 3, 1, 2, 1), Justin Hardy (3, 2, 0, 0, 3, 2), Taylor Gabriel (3, 3, 3, 0, 2, 0), Levine Toilolo (2, 0, 1, 1, 4, 1), Austin Hooper (3, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Patrick DiMarco (0, 0, 2, 1, 1, 1)


Carries: Devonta Freeman (17, 14, 13, 23, 12, 15), Tevin Coleman (12, 12, 8, 6, 5, 8), Matt Ryan (0, 5, 4, 3, 1, 3)


RZ Targets: Jacob Tamme (2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 2), Devonta Freeman (0, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2), Mohamed Sanu (2, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1), Tevin Coleman (1, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0), Julio Jones (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), Justin Hardy (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Aldrick Robinson (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Levine Toilolo (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Carries: Devonta Freeman (3, 3, 3, 5, 0, 2), Tevin Coleman (4, 6, 1, 0, 0, 0), Matt Ryan (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Robert Alford  4, 8, 6, 4, 6, 9 ( 3-24-1, 6-61, 3-51, 2-15, 2-15, 7-67-1), Desmond Trufant 7, 7, 7, 5, 5, 5 (4-73-1, 2-37, 3-39-1, 4-40, 5-54, 3-44), Brian Poole 3, 9, 8, 1, 2, 3 (2-12, 7-45-1, 5-62-1, 1-7, 2-22, 0-0)


Observations: Matt Ryan through 34 times against the Chargers and Julio Jones saw 15 targets, while Devonta Freeman was the only skill position after Julio to see more than five targets. Tevin Coleman is projected to miss some time with a hamstring injury, which puts Freeman in the RB1 category. Freeman will make a strong DFS play in Week 8.


Carolina Panthers – Bye Week


Targets: Greg Olsen (9, 8, 10, 13, 13, 7), Kelvin Benjamin (12, 9, 1, 7, 9, 14), Corey Brown (2, 6, 5, 7, 4, 4), Ted Ginn (1, 4, 7, 5, 1, 8), Fozzy Whittaker (1, 4, 6, 9, 1, 2), Devin Funchess (4, 4, 2, 3, 0, 6), Ed Dickson (0, 1, 1, 2, 0, 4), Mike Tolbert (1, 1, 3, 1, 0, 0), Jonathan Stewart (1, 2, 0, 0, 0, 1), Cameron Artis-Payne (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Jonathan Stewart (15, 5, 0, 0, 0, 19), Cameron Artis-Payne (0, 0, 12, 6, 18, 0), Fozzy Whittaker (3, 16, 5, 3, 5, 1), Cam Newton (11, 6, 7, 5, 0, 2), Mike Tolbert (2, 9, 2, 1, 1, 3), Ted Ginn (1, 1, 2, 0, 0, 2), Derek Anderson (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)

RZ Carries: Jonathan Stewart (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 4), Fozzy Whittaker (0, 2, 1, 0, 1, 1), Mike Tolbert (0, 4, 0, 0, 1, 0), Cam Newton (1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1), Cameron Artis-Payne (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 0)



CBs Thrown At: Daryl Worley 5, 6, 2 (3-73, 3-50, 2-16-1), Teddy Williams 5 (4-50), Zack Sanchez 8 (6-183-2)


Observations: Bye week


Chicago Bears


Targets: Alshon Jeffery (7, 7, 5, 6, 13, 11), Zach Miller (5, 9, 3, 8, 10, 5), Cameron Meredith (0, 3, 5, 12, 15, 2), Eddie Royal (6, 3, 7, 9, 6, 0), Kevin White (6, 14, 9, 0, 0, 0), Jordan Howard (2, 6, 4, 3, 4, 1), Jeremy Langford (2, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), Josh Bellamy (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 4), Logan Paulsen (0, 0, 3, 1, 0, 0), Ka’Deem Carey (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1), Deonte Thompson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)


Carries: Jordan Howard (3, 8, 23, 16, 15, 7), Jeremy Langford (11, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ka’Deem Carey (2, 0, 0, 1, 9, 10), Brian Hoyer (0, 4, 3, 1, 1, 0), Joique Bell (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0), Jay Cutler (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Paul Lasike (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Cameron Meredith (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Josh Bellamy (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Kevin White (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Matt Barkley (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Targets: Zach Miller (0, 4, 1, 1, 1, 0), Eddie Royal (1, 1, 1, 2, 0, 0), Cameron Meredith (0, 0, 1, 3, 1, 0), Kevin White (2, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0), Alshon Jeffery (2, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Jordan Howard (0, 1, 1, 0, 2, 0), Ka’Deem Carey (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Jordan Howard (0, 2, 3, 3, 3, 0), Jeremy Langford (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ka’Deem Carey (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Brian Hoyer (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Cameron Meredith (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Cre’von LeBlanc 0, 1, 5, 3, 11 (0-0, 1-10, 3-73, 1-5, 7-46-1), Tracy Porter 5, 8, 2 (4-50, 4-100-1, 1-11), De’Vante Bausby 13 (10-85-1)


Observations:  The Bears offense was flat from the start, then Brian Hoyer exited with a broken arm – leaving Matt Barkley to finish the game. The Bears managed 189 of total offense on Thursday night. Luckily (I think?) Jay Cutler has been cleared to return for their Monday night tilt against the Vikings. It will be difficult to trust any Bears in that matchup.


Dallas Cowboys – Bye Week


Targets: Jason Witten (14, 4, 2, 9, 5, 8), Cole Beasley (12, 6, 7, 4, 4, 6), Terrance Williams (4, 0, 4, 6, 5, 5), Dez Bryant (5, 12, 6, 0, 0, 0), Brice Butler (2, 1, 1, 9, 3, 3), Ezekiel Elliott (2, 2, 2, 1, 4, 4), Lance Dunbar (2, 2, 0, 2, 0, 0), Geoff Swaim (1, 2, 1, 0, 1, 0), Alfred Morris (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Lucky Whitehead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Rod Smith (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


Carries: Ezekiel Elliott (20, 21, 30, 23, 14, 28), Alfred Morris (7, 5, 5, 7, 6, 3), Dak Prescott (2, 1, 4, 5, 8, 1), Lance Dunbar (0, 3, 1, 1, 0, 0), Lucky Whitehead (0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1), Cole Beasley (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Jason Witten (3, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1), Brice Butler (0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 2), Cole Beasley (2, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Dez Bryant (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0), Ezekiel Elliott (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Lance Dunbar (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Terrance Williams (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Ezekiel Elliott (4, 2, 1, 5, 1, 3), Alfred Morris (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 2), Dak Prescott (0, 1, 1, 0, 2, 1), Lance Dunbar (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Brandon Carr 6, 9, 7, 5, 4, 2 (3-31-1, 6-109, 7-81, 4-56-1, 1-9, 2-39),  Morris Claiborne 3, 9, 14, 3, 7, 4 (1-6, 4-27, 8-90, 4-40, 2-22), Anthony Brown 5, 6, 6, 11 (5-58, 3-44, 5-37-1, 11-98)


Observations:  Bye Week


Detroit Lions


Targets: Golden Tate (9, 6, 4, 5, 10, 12), Marvin Jones (11, 8, 7, 5, 6, 5), Anquan Boldin (7, 6, 8, 4, 9, 4), Theo Riddick (5, 9, 7, 6, 0, 0), Eric Ebron (7, 8, 5, 0, 0, 0), Andre Roberts (0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2), Zach Zenner (0, 0, 1, 2, 2, 2), Ameer Abdullah (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Clay Harbor (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Cole Wick (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Justin Forsett (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Dwayne Washington (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Khari Lee (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Theo Riddick (11, 10, 11, 11, 0, 0), Zach Zenner (0, 0, 3, 7, 14, 9), Matthew Stafford (2, 2, 2, 6, 5, 2), Ameer Abdullah (6, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Dwayne Washington (4, 10, 2, 0, 0, 0), Justin Forsett (0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 8), Golden Tate (0, 1, 0, 3, 1, 0), Marvin Jones (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Targets: Anquan Boldin (0, 1, 1, 0, 4, 2), Marvin Jones (1, 1, 0, 1, 2, 2), Theo Riddick (1, 2, 1, 2, 0, 0), Golden Tate (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 3), Eric Ebron (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ameer Abdullah (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Andre Roberts (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Carries: Zach Zenner (0, 0, 1, 3, 2, 1), Theo Riddick (1, 1, 2, 0, 0, 0), Dwayne Washington (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ameer Abdullah (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Golden Tate (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Justin Forsett (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Matthew Stafford (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Nevin Lawson 4, 2, 5, 5, 2, 5 ( 2-62-1, 1-9, 4-25-1, 2-25, 2-17, 3-17), Quandre Diggs 5, 3, 3 (5-65-1, 3-12, 3-26), Johnson Bademosi 5 (5-72)


Observations: With Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron inactive, Golden Tate has seen signs of life after being MIA the first four games of the year. Tate has 22 targets the last two weeks with Riddick and Ebron out. Without those two, it basically leaves the offense to be filtered through Anquan Boldin, Marvin Jones, and Tate, with Tate being the biggest beneficiary thus far. It’ll be interesting to see what his role looks like once Riddick and Ebron are back healthy.



Green Bay Packers


Targets: Randall Cobb (7, 3, 0, 11, 11, 15), Jordy Nelson (11, 7, 0, 13, 7, 4), Davante Adams (7, 2, 0, 8, 3, 16), Ty Montgomery (0, 0, 0, 0, 12, 13), Richard Rodgers (2, 3, 0, 5, 3, 1), Jared Cook (6, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), James Starks (1, 2, 0, 6, 0, 0), Eddie Lacy (1, 2, 0, 1, 1, 0), Jeff Janis (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 5), Aaron Ripkowski (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1), Jared Abbrederis (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Justin Perillo (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Trevor Davis (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Don Jackson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


Carries: Eddie Lacy (12, 17, 0, 11, 17, 0), James Starks (7, 1, 0, 12, 0, 0), Aaron Rodgers (3, 5, 0, 5, 3, 2), Ty Montgomery (0, 1, 0, 1, 3, 9), Randall Cobb (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 5), Aaron Ripkowski (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 3), Don Jackson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Knile Davis (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)


RZ Targets: Jordy Nelson (2, 3, 0, 2, 0, 2), Ty Montgomery (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 7), Randall Cobb (0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 4), Davante Adams (1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 2), Richard Rodgers (0, 1, 0, 2, 0, 0), Jared Cook (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jeff Janis (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Carries: Eddie Lacy (2, 2, 0, 1, 1, 0), Aaron Rodgers (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1), James Starks (2, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Ty Montgomery (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 4), Aaron Ripkowski (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Randall Cobb (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Knile Davis (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At:  Ladarius Gunter 4, 5, 2, 6, 9 (4-48, 2-0, 0-0, 6-119-2, 3-33), Demetri Goodson 2, 3 (1-3, 3-41)


Observations: Aaron Rodgers threw the ball 56 times in a game without James Starks and Eddie Lacy. Somehow, Jordy Nelson saw a mere four targets. It has now been two weeks in a row with seven or fewer targets. In the meantime, Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery continue to be peppered with targets. Montgomery is the most intriguing with him now being RB eligible. With 25 targets, 12 carries and 14 red zone opportunities in the last two weeks, he’s going to make for a very intriguing play each week with his hybrid role as an RB/WR in this offense, especially on DFS sites.


Los Angeles Rams


Targets: Tavon Austin (9, 8, 6, 10, 4, 15), Kenny Britt (10, 6, 4, 6, 8, 8), Lance Kendricks (6, 4, 7, 3, 8, 9), Brian Quick (1, 2, 6, 4, 5, 9), Todd Gurley (1, 2, 5, 5, 4, 7), Benny Cunningham (2, 1, 0, 0, 2, 1), Tyler Higbee (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1), Bradley Marquez (0, 2, 0, 0, 1, 1), Malcolm Brown (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Michael Thomas (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Pharoh Cooper (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


Carries: Todd Gurley (19, 27, 19, 23, 14, 15), Case Keenum (3, 2, 3, 0, 3, 1), Tavon Austin (2, 2, 1, 3, 3, 1), Benny Cunningham (1, 2, 0, 0, 2, 3), Malcolm Brown (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Bradley Marquez (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Todd Gurley (0, 0, 1, 3, 3, 1), Tavon Austin (1, 0, 1, 3, 0, 2), Kenny Britt (1, 0, 0, 0, 3, 0), Brian Quick (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1), Lance Kendricks (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Benny Cunningham (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Bradley Marquez (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Michael Thomas (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Tyler Higbee (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Todd Gurley (1, 7, 3, 6, 4, 1), Tavon Austin (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 0), Case Keenum (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Benny Cunningham (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Lamarcus Joyner  6, 12, 3, 1, 10, 7 ( 3-18, 9-76, 2-25, 1-12, 7-66, 4-12),  E.J. Gaines 7, 7, 6, 10 (6-55, 3-35-1, 6-55-2, 6-80), Troy Hill 7, 6 (6-70-1, 5-39)


Observations:  Tavon Austin had a typical stat line for himself after catching 10 of his 15 targets for 57 yards and a TD. Austin is 13th in the league with 64 targets, but 70th in receiving yards with 299. Oddly, he has three more receiving yards than Allen Robinson.


Minnesota Vikings


Targets: Kyle Rudolph (8, 10, 7, 4, 0, 11), Stefon Diggs (11, 7, 7, 0, 0, 5), Adam Thielen (5, 4, 3, 8, 0, 5), Cordarrelle Patterson (0, 1, 6, 6, 0, 7), Charles Johnson (2, 2, 4, 1, 0, 1), Matt Asiata (1, 1, 2, 3, 0, 8), Jerick McKinnon (1, 2, 5, 3, 0, 1), Adrian Peterson (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jarius Wright (0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 0), Rhett Ellison (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), MyCole Pruitt (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Ronnie Hillman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Zach Line (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


Carries: Jerick McKinnon (2, 16, 18, 20, 0, 11), Matt Asiata (6, 6, 6, 14, 0, 12), Adrian Peterson (12, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Sam Bradford (1, 2, 4, 2, 0, 1), Zach Line (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 2), Cordarrelle Patterson (1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Shaun Hill (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Stefon Diggs (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Ronnie Hillman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Targets: Kyle Rudolph (1, 3, 2, 0, 0, 0), Adam Thielen (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1), Cordarrelle Patterson (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Stefon Diggs (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Jerick McKinnon (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Zach Line (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Jerick McKinnon (0, 2, 3, 4, 0, 1), Matt Asiata (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 3), Adrian Peterson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Sam Bradford (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Stefon Diggs (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Zach Line (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Terence Newman 9, 5, 3, 7, 6, 3 (5-46, 2-12, 1-9, 4-36, 0-0, 2-9-1), Captain Munnerlyn 1, 7, 7, 8, 7, 1 (1-5, 4-36, 6-87, 6-36, 5-45, 1-14), Xavier Rhodes 3, 7, 6, 5 (0-0, 3-23, 5-56-1, 2-18)


Observations: The Vikings struggled to muster much offense against this Eagles defense. Kyle Rudolph remains one of Sam Bradford’s favorite targets with seven or more targets in four of the last five games. Rudolph is currently TE7 in PPR leagues. Jerick McKinnon is battling an ankle injury, which would leave Matt Asiata with the majority of the RB work against the Bears on Monday night.


New Orleans Saints


Targets: Brandin Cooks (9, 8, 6, 0, 9, 9), Michael Thomas (5, 11, 9, 0, 5, 13), Coby Fleener (8, 11, 5, 0, 7, 2), Willie Snead (8, 0, 1, 0, 7, 11), Mark Ingram (4, 6, 7, 0, 3, 4), Travaris Cadet (3, 6, 0, 0, 5, 4), Brandon Coleman (4, 8, 3, 0, 2, 1), Tommylee Lewis (1, 4, 1, 0, 3, 0), John Kuhn (2, 0, 2, 0, 0, 1), Josh Hill (0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 1), Daniel Lasco (0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0), Tim Hightower (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


Carries: Mark Ingram (9, 15, 18, 0, 16, 16), Tim Hightower (3, 3, 4, 0, 0, 5), Drew Brees (0, 2, 4, 0, 0, 0), John Kuhn (1, 1, 3, 0, 0, 1), Daniel Lasco (0, 0, 4, 0, 2, 0), Brandin Cooks (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Tommylee Lewis (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Travaris Cadet (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Targets: Michael Thomas (0, 4, 2, 0, 1, 0), Mark Ingram (1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 2), Brandin Cooks (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Travaris Cadet (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Brandon Coleman (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), Coby Fleener (1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0), John Kuhn (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Willie Snead (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Josh Hill (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Carries: Mark Ingram (0, 2, 5, 0, 4, 3), John Kuhn (0, 1, 2, 0, 0, 0), Daniel Lasco (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0), Tim Hightower (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Brandin Cooks (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Drew Brees (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tommylee Lewis (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Travaris Cadet (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


CBs Thrown At:  Ken Crawley 7, 5, 9, 5, 10, 4 (6-64-1, 4-58, 3-34, 4-39, 5-53, 3-46), B.W. Webb 7, 9, 5 (3-47, 3-39-1, 4-50)


Observations: The Saints three main pass-catchers all saw similar volume against the Chiefs. Michael Thomas continues to be a reliable piece in this offense. Thomas is nine PPR points behind Brandin Cooks, but he leads Saints WRs in fantasy points per opportunity, per Pro Football Focus. His red zone usage is also much higher than Willie Snead or Cooks. Cooks and Snead combined for three red zone targets in the last six games, while Thomas has seven in that same span.  


New York Giants


Targets: Odell Beckham (11, 11, 9, 12, 10, 9), Sterling Shepard (8, 7, 7, 7, 8, 7), Victor Cruz (8, 3, 9, 2, 7, 8), Will Tye (3, 5, 6, 3, 2, 3), Bobby Rainey (0, 2, 9, 6, 3, 1), Larry Donnell (5, 4, 0, 0, 7, 3), Shane Vereen (3, 5, 0, 0, 0, 0), Rashad Jennings (2, 0, 0, 0, 4, 3), Paul Perkins (0, 0, 3, 2, 2, 1), Orleans Darkwa (1, 1, 2, 0, 0, 0), Roger Lewis (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 1), Jerell Adams (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Tavarres King (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


Carries: Rashad Jennings (13, 0, 0, 0, 9, 13), Shane Vereen (14, 11, 0, 0, 0, 0), Orleans Darkwa (1, 10, 12, 7, 0, 0), Bobby Rainey (0, 0, 4, 5, 6, 1), Paul Perkins (0, 0, 2, 2, 2, 4), Eli Manning (4, 0, 0, 1, 0, 2)


RZ Targets: Odell Beckham (1, 3, 0, 1, 1, 1), Victor Cruz (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Shane Vereen (2, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Sterling Shepard (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Larry Donnell (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Will Tye (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Bobby Rainey (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Roger Lewis (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Carries: Shane Vereen (4, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Orleans Darkwa (0, 3, 2, 0, 0, 0), Eli Manning (3, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Rashad Jennings (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 3), Paul Perkins (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Bobby Rainey (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Janoris Jenkins 12, 6, 5, 7, 6, 6 (8-51, 5-48, 2-10, 5-60, 2-26, 2-51), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie 3, 10, 15 (1-8, 6-82, 7-53), Leon Hall 6, 7, 2 (4-47, 6-52, 2-32)


Observations: When Eli Manning throws for 196 yards and zero touchdowns, there won’t be many standout players. Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepherd, and Victor Cruz all saw similar volume, but neither WR topped 60 yards receiving. Rashad Jennings out-snapped all other RBs at least 23 percent, but he did very little with his carries (13-25.)


Philadelphia Eagles


Targets: Jordan Matthews (9, 3, 0, 4, 7, 4), Nelson Agholor (7, 3, 0, 7, 4, 6), Dorial Green-Beckham (4, 4, 0, 4, 4, 4), Darren Sproles (2, 6, 0, 4, 1, 3), Trey Burton (7, 6, 0, 2, 1, 1), Josh Huff (1, 5, 0, 3, 0, 4), Zach Ertz (0, 0, 0, 3, 3, 3), Brent Celek (1, 4, 0, 0, 0, 2), Ryan Mathews (1, 0, 0, 5, 0, 1), Wendell Smallwood (1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 0)


Carries: Ryan Mathews (9, 2, 0, 11, 9, 14), Darren Sproles (12, 2, 0, 5, 4, 3), Wendell Smallwood (2, 17, 0, 0, 4, 4), Carson Wentz (6, 1, 0, 2, 2, 5), Kenjon Barner (2, 8, 0, 0, 2, 0), Josh Huff (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Nelson Agholor (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Nelson Agholor (3, 0, 0, 1, 1, 2), Jordan Matthews (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Josh Huff (0, 2, 0, 1, 0, 1), Dorial Green-Beckham (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Brent Celek (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Darren Sproles (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ryan Mathews (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Trey Burton (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Zach Ertz (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 0)


RZ Carries: Ryan Mathews (3, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Darren Sproles (4, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1), Carson Wentz (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Kenjon Barner (2, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Wendell Smallwood (0, 4, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Nolan Carroll 6, 2, 8, 2, 4, 6 (3-114, 2-33, 3-33, 2-26, 4-53, 4-53), Leodis McKelvin 5 (3-27-1)


Observations: Zach Ertz has played 82+ percent of the snaps in each of their three games, but his target total for each game is 3, 3, 3, with only two red zone targets. He has more than one reception in just one of the last three games, but he has failed to top 40 receiving yards since his return from injury. Ertz can be dropped in all leagues.


San Francisco 49ers


Targets: Jeremy Kerley (6, 6, 9, 13, 7, 5), Torrey Smith (10, 4, 2, 1, 7, 2), Quinton Patton (6, 4, 3, 2, 7, 4), Garrett Celek (2, 4, 5, 6, 0, 3), Vance McDonald (2, 2, 0, 0, 2, 6), Carlos Hyde (3, 1, 1, 6, 0, 0), Shaun Draughn (1, 2, 1, 0, 1, 7), Rod Streater (2, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1), Aaron Burbridge (1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 2), Blake Bell (2, 1, 0, 2, 0, 0), Mike Davis (1, 0, 0, 0, 3, 0), DuJuan Harris (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)


Carries: Carlos Hyde (14, 21, 15, 22, 14, 0), Blaine Gabbert (3, 5, 12, 10, 0, 0), Shaun Draughn (9, 5, 2, 2, 1, 1), Colin Kaepernick (0, 0, 0, 0, 8, 9), Mike Davis (0, 0, 0, 2, 5, 7), DuJuan Harris (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 11)


RZ Targets: Jeremy Kerley (0, 1, 0, 3, 0, 1), Quinton Patton (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Shaun Draughn (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Torrey Smith (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Blake Bell (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Aaron Burbridge (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Carlos Hyde (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), DuJuan Harris (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Garrett Celek (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Mike Davis (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Vance McDonald (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Carlos Hyde (4, 8, 3, 4, 0, 0), Blaine Gabbert (1, 1, 2, 1, 0, 0), Shaun Draughn (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), DuJuan Harris (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Mike Davis (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Tramaine Brock 4, 6, 2, 9, 3, 7 (2-56, 3-80, 2-24-2, 2-50-2, 1-6, 3-22)


Observations:  If not for his rushing ability, Colin Kaepernick’s stat lines would look even worse than they already do. In the last two weeks, of QBs who have played at least 25 percent of their team’s snaps, Kap ranks 34th in completion percentage (52.7%.) It’s hard to trust any offensive piece on this team.



Seattle Seahawks


Targets: Doug Baldwin (6, 10, 4, 0, 5, 9), Jimmy Graham (4, 9, 8, 0, 9, 10), Jermaine Kearse (6, 2, 3, 0, 5, 4), Christine Michael (4, 3, 6, 0, 3, 3), Tyler Lockett (4, 0, 3, 0, 5, 2), Luke Willson (1, 3, 3, 0, 1, 0), Paul Richardson (6, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2), C.J. Spiller (0, 0, 3, 0, 6, 0), Thomas Rawls (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), C.J. Prosise (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3), Tanner McEvoy (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1), Alex Collins (0, 2, 0, 0, 1, 0), Nick Vannett (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


Carries: Christine Michael (10, 20, 18, 0, 18, 16), Russell Wilson (5, 1, 5, 0, 6, 1), Thomas Rawls (7, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Alex Collins (2, 4, 1, 0, 1, 1), C.J. Spiller (0, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0), Terrence Magee (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), C.J. Prosise (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Trevone Boykin (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Doug Baldwin (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Lockett (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Targets: Doug Baldwin (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jimmy Graham (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), C.J. Spiller (0, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0), Christine Michael (0, 1, 2, 0, 0, 0), Jermaine Kearse (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Tyler Lockett (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Thomas Rawls (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Christine Michael (2, 7, 2, 0, 4, 1), Alex Collins (0, 2, 0, 0, 1, 0), C.J. Spiller (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Thomas Rawls (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Trevone Boykin (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: DeShawn Shead 2, 8, 3, 4, 12, 10  (0-0, 7-111, 1-8, 1-7, 8-87, 5-71), Richard Sherman 1, 4, 3, 12, 7, 7 (1-2, 1-8, 2-13, 4-89-1, 5-92-1, 4-86), Jeremy Lane 10 (8-82)


Observations: This game turned into an onslaught of field goals (sort of) as Russell Wilson failed to score a TD against a smothering Cardinals defense. Jimmy Graham’s heavy volume continues with eight or more targets in each of the last four games. He’ll be an elite TE1 against the Saints.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers


Targets: Mike Evans (17, 13, 11, 12, 0, 13), Adam Humphries (8, 12, 4, 2, 0, 3), Cameron Brate (4, 10, 8, 3, 0, 3), Vincent Jackson (9, 6, 5, 5, 0, 0), Charles Sims (5, 8, 3, 0, 0, 0), Jacquizz Rodgers (1, 1, 2, 6, 0, 1), Russell Shepard (2, 2, 0, 0, 0, 6), Brandon Myers (0, 3, 0, 1, 0, 0), Doug Martin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Alan Cross (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0), Antone Smith (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Cecil Shorts (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Freddie Martino (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Jacquizz Rodgers (2, 5, 6, 30, 0, 26), Charles Sims (9, 13, 15, 0, 0, 0), Doug Martin (7, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jameis Winston (3, 4, 5, 4, 0, 1), Peyton Barber (0, 0, 0, 3, 0, 12), Adam Humphries (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Antone Smith (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Russell Shepard (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Mike Evans (2, 2, 0, 3, 0, 2), Cameron Brate (0, 5, 1, 0, 0, 1), Vincent Jackson (0, 3, 0, 1, 0, 0), Brandon Myers (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Russell Shepard (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2), Jacquizz Rodgers (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Adam Humphries (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Carries: Jacquizz Rodgers (0, 1, 0, 2, 0, 5), Charles Sims (1, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0), Jameis Winston (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0), Doug Martin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Peyton Barber (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)


CBs Thrown At: Vernon Hargreaves 9, 4, 7, 6, 8, 4 (6-90, 3-44, 4-44, 5-48, 6-70, 2-16), Brent Grimes 3, 11, 2, 12, 2, 5 (1-5-1. 7-95-1, 1-8, 6-88-1, 1-13, 3-32), Jude Adeji-Barimah 1 (1-15)


Observations: Mike Evans’ target share shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, especially with Vincent Jackson out of the picture. Without Jackson, Adam Humphries, Cecil Shorts and Russell Shepard all shared snaps in Week 7, with Humphries playing the most at 51 percent. However, Shepard was the main beneficiary after catching five of his six targets for 77 yards and a touchdown. Shorts was not targeted once. Jacquizz Rodgers now has 56 carries in his two games as their starting RB. He’s set to be an RB1 against the Raiders next week.  


Washington Redskins


Targets: DeSean Jackson (5, 8, 2, 7, 9, 8), Pierre Garcon (7, 7, 5, 7, 11, 5), Jordan Reed (7, 7, 10, 11, 0, 0), Jamison Crowder (8, 7, 3, 3, 4, 9), Chris Thompson (4, 2, 4, 4, 3, 7), Vernon Davis (5, 0, 1, 4, 4, 6), Matt Jones (1, 2, 2, 2, 0, 0), Josh Doctson (5, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Ryan Grant (1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 2), Niles Paul (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Rashad Ross (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Rob Kelley (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


Carries: Matt Jones (13, 17, 22, 14, 16, 10), Chris Thompson (2, 6, 3, 2, 9, 12), Rob Kelley (0, 4, 1, 3, 5, 4), Kirk Cousins (2, 3, 0, 1, 2, 3), Jamison Crowder (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


RZ Targets: Jamison Crowder (1, 3, 0, 1, 1, 0), Pierre Garcon (2, 1, 1, 1, 4, 0), Jordan Reed (2, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0), DeSean Jackson (0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0), Josh Doctson (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Vernon Davis (1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 0), Chris Thompson (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Rob Kelley (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Ryan Grant (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Matt Jones (3, 2, 6, 2, 2, 2), Rob Kelley (0, 2, 1, 0, 1, 0), Chris Thompson (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Kirk Cousins (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Kendall Fuller 6, 5, 5 (6-31, 3-70, 4-50-1), Bashaud Breeland 5 (3-38)


Observations: Chris Thompson led the Redskins with 12 carries after Matt Jones lost a fumble. He also saw seven targets in the passing game. Thompson is shaping up to be in the RB2 range in PPR leagues. Jay Gruden mentioned Jones could see his carries reduced with his fumbling issues. Vernon Davis appears to be a viable streaming option for as long as Jordan Reed is out. Davis caught all six of his targets for 79 yards.
