Targets and Touches will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. The data will be in descending order of games played. NFC will debut on Tuesday, and the AFC will be posted on Wednesday. You can read the NFC Targets and Touches for Week 9, here

 

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.

Buffalo Bills


Targets: Robert Woods (8, 10, 6, 6, 0, 7), Charles Clay (2, 7, 5, 7, 5, 6), Marquise Goodwin (5, 5, 6, 4, 7, 0), LeSean McCoy (4, 6, 2, 3, 0, 0), Walt Powell (5, 5, 1, 0, 4, 8), Justin Hunter (0, 0, 1, 2, 4, 5), Sammy Watkins (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Nick O’Leary (1, 2, 0, 2, 1, 1), Mike Gillislee (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 3), Brandon Tate (0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3), Greg Salas (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Reggie Bush (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 3), Jerome Felton (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 3)


Carries: LeSean McCoy (17, 19, 18, 19, 8, 0), Tyrod Taylor (9, 5, 5, 8, 7, 5), Mike Gillislee (3, 6, 2, 6, 5, 12), Jonathan Williams (3, 0, 0, 5, 0, 5), Reggie Bush (0, 0, 1, 2, 1, 2), E.J. Manuel (0, 0, 0, 3, 0, 0), Jerome Felton (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), Brandon Tate (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Robert Woods (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Charles Clay (1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 1), Robert Woods (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 2), Justin Hunter (0, 0, 1, 0, 2, 0), Marquise Goodwin (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Reggie Bush (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1), Greg Salas (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), LeSean McCoy (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Mike Gillislee (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Nick O’Leary (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Walt Powell (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: LeSean McCoy (2, 2, 4, 5, 1, 0), Tyrod Taylor (2, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1), Mike Gillislee (2, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1), Jonathan Williams (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Reggie Bush (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Stephon Gilmore 8, 2, 6, 2, 3, 5 (3-48, 1-6, 4-55, 1-53-1, 1-9, 4-105-1), Ronald Darby 2, 8, 4, 5, 5 (1-16, 7-87, 0-0, 5-98-1, 2-17)


Observations: Mike Gillislee had an exceptional game with 85 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. With Bills playing from behind for the majority of the game, his carries could’ve been much higher. LeSean McCoy is expected back next week, which would put Gillislee back into his bench role. Percy Harvin signed with the Bills Tuesday night, but shouldn’t be seen as a fantasy option.


Cincinnati Bengals


Targets: A.J. Green (11, 12, 8, 10, 8, 18), Brandon LaFell (3, 6, 11, 5, 5, 2), Giovani Bernard (5, 4, 6, 5, 2, 1), Tyler Boyd (4, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7), C.J. Uzomah (4, 5, 5, 2, 0, 0), Tyler Eifert (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 12), Jeremy Hill (0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1), Tyler Kroft (0, 0, 3, 2, 1, 1), James Wright (1, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0), Alex Erickson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Rex Burkhead (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)


Carries: Jeremy Hill (17, 21, 4, 13, 9, 20), Giovani Bernard (5, 10, 9, 15, 17, 11), Andy Dalton (6, 6, 6, 2, 0, 4), Rex Burkhead (0, 0, 0, 2, 4, 0), James Wright (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Brandon LaFell (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Boyd (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Targets: A.J. Green (1, 1, 0, 3, 0, 0), Brandon LaFell (1, 1, 2, 1, 0, 0), C.J. Uzomah (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Giovani Bernard (1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Tyler Boyd (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Eifert (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Jeremy Hill (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Kroft (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Jeremy Hill (3, 2, 0, 2, 0, 7), Giovani Bernard (2, 3, 0, 4, 1, 2), Andy Dalton (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1), James Wright (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At:  Adam Jones 10, 0, 5, 1, 2, 10 (8-108-1, 0-0, 4-45, 0-0, 1-17, 7-62), Dre Kirkpatrick 2, 7, 7, 7 (1-21, 6-51-1, 4-21, 6-87), Joshua Shaw 6 (5-40)


Observations: In Tyler Eifert’s second game back he played 84 percent of the snaps and was targeted 12 times. Eifert took advantage of those targets going 9-102-1. He ran 41 pass routes, the second-most among TEs in Week 8. Eifert appears back to full strength, and this should also help Andy Dalton’s touchdown upside for the remainder of the season.

Cleveland Browns


Targets: Terrelle Pryor (14, 9, 6, 13, 4, 13), Duke Johnson (7, 8, 3, 6, 5, 8), Gary Barnidge (6, 7, 8, 5, 7, 7), Andrew Hawkins (4, 3, 7, 4, 4, 8), Ricardo Louis (4, 5, 5, 9, 3, 7), Isaiah Crowell (1, 4, 3, 2, 4, 2), Corey Coleman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Malcolm Johnson (1, 1, 1, 0, 2, 0), Rashard Higgins (1, 0, 1, 1, 2, 1), Jordan Payton (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Randall Telfer (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2), Seth DeValve (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Connor Hamlett (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Isaiah Crowell (15, 15, 13, 9, 12, 11), Duke Johnson (10, 9, 4, 4, 6, 4), Terrelle Pryor (4, 1, 2, 1, 0, 0), Cody Kessler (2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 0), Kevin Hogan (0, 0, 0, 0, 7, 0), Josh McCown (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3), Robert Griffin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Andrew Hawkins (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Charlie Whitehurst (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Malcolm Johnson (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Andrew Hawkins (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 4), Terrelle Pryor (0, 1, 0, 3, 0, 0), Duke Johnson (2, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Gary Barnidge (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Ricardo Louis (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Rashard Higgins (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Connor Hamlett (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Corey Coleman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Isaiah Crowell (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Carries: Isaiah Crowell (1, 2, 1, 2, 4, 3), Duke Johnson (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Cody Kessler (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Josh McCown (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Malcolm Johnson (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Terrelle Pryor (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At:  Jamar Taylor 5, 6, 9, 5, 5, 7 (2-48, 5-37, 6-54, 3-25-1, 5-124-2, 3-79), Tramon Williams 3, 3 (1-15, 2-19), Tracy Howard 2, 1 (2-12, 0-0), Joe Haden 7 (3-55)


Observations: There wasn’t much volume for the RBs as Josh McCown threw 49 times against the Jets. The Jets have been a funnel defense for most of the year, with a strong run defense, but one of the worst pass defenses in the league. Terrelle Pryor bounced back nicely seeing 13 targets from McCown and catching six passes for 101 yards and a two-point conversion. Gary Barnidge and Pryor have been the clear favorites in the passing game, but with Corey Coleman cleared to play, the target distribution may be more spread out.


Denver Broncos


Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (13, 13, 9, 6, 8, 10), Demaryius Thomas (7, 7, 7, 10, 10, 10), C.J. Anderson (4, 1, 4, 5, 0, 0), Jordan Norwood (2, 2, 3, 7, 2, 3), Devontae Booker (1, 1, 6, 2, 2, 6), Virgil Green (0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 6), Bennie Fowler (1, 3, 2, 7, 1, 1), John Phillips (4, 0, 1, 3, 0, 0), Jordan Taylor (0, 1, 0, 3, 0, 1), Andy Janovich (1, 0, 1, 0, 2, 0), Cody Latimer (1, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jeff Heuerman (1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Kapri Bibbs (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: C.J. Anderson (14, 19, 11, 10, 16, 0), Devontae Booker (4, 7, 6, 5, 17, 19), Trevor Siemian (3, 0, 0, 1, 1, 3), Paxton Lynch (0, 3, 6, 0, 0, 0), Kapri Bibbs (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 2), Andy Janovich (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Jordan Norwood (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Juwan Thompson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)


RZ Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (5, 2, 2, 0, 2, 2), Demaryius Thomas (2, 2, 1, 3, 2, 0), Devontae Booker (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 3), C.J. Anderson (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Jordan Norwood (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Virgil Green (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Bennie Fowler (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Cody Latimer (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), John Phillips (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: C.J. Anderson (2, 4, 0, 2, 4, 0), Devontae Booker (0, 1, 1, 0, 5, 7), Andy Janovich (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Trevor Siemian (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Juwan Thompson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Kapri Bibbs (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Bradley Roby 2, 7, 3, 4, 2, 9 (1-14, 4-37, 2-26, 2-33, 2-12, 2-34), Lorenzo Doss 7 (2-29-1), Chris Harris Jr. 3, 8, 5, 3, 7, 6 (2-14, 4-48, 2-18. 3-20-1, 4-11, 3-53)


Observations: In his first start for the Broncos, Devontae Booker gave every DFS owner a heart attack when he briefly exited the game with shoulder injury. Luckily, he returned and played 83 percent of the snaps in, carrying the ball 19 times and caught five of six targets. Booker is running more tests on his shoulder, be he is expected to be cleared for Week 9. He’s a clear RB1 against the Raiders.


Houston Texans


Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (8, 6, 9, 15, 12, 7), Will Fuller (7, 9, 6, 0, 7, 4), C.J. Fiedorowicz (1, 5, 8, 7, 7, 7), Ryan Griffin (10, 5, 6, 5, 5, 3), Lamar Miller (5, 3, 3, 4, 4, 3), Jaelen Strong (4, 6, 9, 2, 2, 0), Braxton Miller (0, 0, 1, 4, 0, 3), Stephen Anderson (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Jonathan Grimes (4, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Ervin (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 0), Alfred Blue (0, 1, 0, 0, 3, 0), Jay Prosch (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Lamar Miller (21, 19, 8, 24, 11, 17), Alfred Blue (2, 3, 6, 2, 11, 9), Brock Osweiler (1, 1, 0, 2, 3, 3), Jonathan Grimes (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Jay Prosch (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Braxton Miller (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Ervin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Braxton Miller (0, 0, 0, 3, 0, 1), DeAndre Hopkins (0, 0, 2, 1, 0, 1), C.J. Fiedorowicz (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 2), Will Fuller (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Lamar Miller (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Ryan Griffin (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Stephen Anderson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Alfred Blue (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Jaelen Strong (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jonathan Grimes (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyler Ervin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Lamar Miller (0, 1, 0, 3, 1, 3), Brock Osweiler (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 2), Alfred Blue (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 3), Braxton Miller (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: A.J. Bouye 4, 3, 10, 8 (3-41, 2-20, 6-38, 4-26), Kareem Jackson 5, 10 (4-54-1, 8-42), Jonathan Joseph  3 (2-22)


Observations: Brock Osweiler failed to exploit a mediocre Lions’ defense without their best corner in Darius Slay. Osweiler attempted 29 passes and threw his only TD pass to C.J. Fiedorowicz. Fiedorowicz now has seven or more targets in the last four games. CJF’s volume puts him in the TE1/TE2 realm.


Indianapolis Colts


Targets: T.Y. Hilton (11, 10, 11, 9, 12, 6), Jack Doyle (6, 1, 3, 4, 10, 3), Phillip Dorsett (4, 3, 3, 5, 0, 5), Frank Gore (3, 6, 2, 1, 5, 3), Dwayne Allen (5, 4, 6, 2, 0, 0), Josh Ferguson (4, 10, 4, 0, 0, 0), Chester Rogers (2, 3, 6, 4, 3, 0), Donte Moncrief (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 9), Robert Turbin (0, 3, 0, 4, 1, 3), Erik Swoope (0, 0, 0, 3, 5, 3), Devin Street (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 3), Quan Bray (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Frank Gore (21, 16, 14, 22, 17, 9), Andrew Luck (0, 4, 5, 7, 5, 9), Robert Turbin (4, 1, 0, 3, 2, 2), Josh Ferguson (1, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0), Donte Moncrief (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Phillip Dorsett (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Quan Bray (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Jack Doyle (0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 1), T.Y. Hilton (2, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Phillip Dorsett (0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0), Dwayne Allen (1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0), Frank Gore (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Chester Rogers (0, 0, 2, 1, 0, 0), Donte Moncrief (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Robert Turbin (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Erik Swoope (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Frank Gore (2, 2, 0, 3, 4, 1), Robert Turbin (1, 1, 0, 2, 1, 0), Andrew Luck (0, 1, 0, 2, 0, 0), Josh Ferguson (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Vontae Davis 7, 7, 6, 8, 5, 2 (5-55, 4-26, 3-37, 4-31, 4-40, 1-14-1), Patrick Robinson 7, 6 (2-13, 3-40)


Observations: Jack Doyle saw three targets in a tough matchup against the Chiefs. He still spent the same amount of snaps in route (32) as Week 7, but Donte Moncrief is certainly going to siphon of volume from Doyle. Moncrief didn’t appear to be limited as he played 89 percent of the snaps and was targeted a team-high nine times.


Jacksonville Jaguars


Targets: Allen Robinson (11, 10, 0, 6, 8, 15), Allen Hurns (8, 4, 0, 11, 7, 11), Marqise Lee (7, 6, 0, 6, 8, 3), Julius Thomas (5, 0, 0, 4, 7, 6), T.J. Yeldon (3, 5, 0, 2, 2, 4), Marcedes Lewis (3, 2, 0, 1, 3, 6), Chris Ivory (1, 1, 0, 2, 4, 1), Arrelious Benn (0, 2, 0, 1, 2, 1), Rashad Greene (0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0), Ben Koyack (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 5), Bryan Walters (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2), Denard Robinson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Corey Grant (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Neal Sterling (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: T.J. Yeldon (6, 14, 0, 6, 6, 3), Chris Ivory (12, 8, 0, 11, 5, 4), Blake Bortles (3, 7, 0, 3, 5, 4), Denard Robinson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Allen Robinson (3, 2, 0, 1, 3, 2), Allen Hurns (1, 1, 0, 2, 0, 3), Marqise Lee (2, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0), Julius Thomas (0, 0, 0, 0, 3, 1), Marcedes Lewis (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1), Bryan Walters (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Arrelious Benn (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Corey Grant (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Denard Robinson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Rashad Greene (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), T.J. Yeldon (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: T.J. Yeldon (1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Chris Ivory (1, 0, 0, 3, 1, 0), Blake Bortles (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1)


CBs Thrown At: Jalen Ramsey 5, 6, 9, 9, 1, 2 (3-25-1, 4-15, 7-107-1, 4-73, 0-0, 2-63), Prince Amukamara 2, 7, 9, 2 (1-5, 3-57, 7-89-1, 2-17), Aaron Colvin 3 (2-33)


Observations: With Blake Bortles throwing 54 times, there was little volume for T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory as they combined for seven carries. Allen Robinson saw 15 targets but struggled to garner much production. Bortles and ARob have both struggled this season. Robinson is tied for the most drops in the league (7) on 39 catchable targets. This gives Robinson a league-high 17.95 percent drop rate.

RZ Targets: Travis Kelce (3, 3, 0, 0, 0, 2), Jeremy Maclin (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 4), Chris Conley (2, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1), Tyreek Hill (1, 2, 0, 0, 0, 1), Albert Wilson (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Charcandrick West (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Demetrius Harris (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Spencer Ware (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Jamaal Charles (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Ross Travis (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)

CBs Thrown At: Marcus Peters 11, 5, 7, 6, 3, 4 ( 5-98-1, 2-17, 5-86, 3-32, 3-24, 2-20), Steven Nelson 2, 9, 3, 4, 10, 5 (1-20, 1-9, 2-42-1, 3-38, 9-106, 2-23-1), Phillip Gaines 6 (2-18)


Observations:  This was an odd week for the Chiefs. Alex Smith suffered a possible concussion, came back to the game, only to leave again with an actual concussion. Then Spencer Ware also left with a concussion. Charcandrick West handled the majority of the work 14 carries. West may draw the start in Week 9 if Ware isn’t cleared from his concussion. Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce were each targeted 10 times. Maclin saw his first touchdown since Week 1. All of the Chiefs pass-catchers may take a hit of Nick Foles is deemed the starter.

CBs Thrown At: Malcolm Butler 5, 6, 3, 7, 11, 8 (9-157, 1-3, 3-24, 2-26, 3-17-1, 5-94, 2-15), Logan Ryan 2 (1-12)


Observations: Since Tom Brady’s return, Rob Gronkowski has run the third-most (119) pass routes among TEs since Week 5, and ranks sixth in TE targets in that same span. In the last four games, LeGarrette Blount is averaging 18.25 carries/game and has stumbled for five touchdowns in four games with Tom Brady this season.


New York Jets

RZ Carries: Matt Forte (2, 1, 1, 0, 7, 5), Ryan Fitzpatrick (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Bilal Powell (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Darrelle Revis 6, 2, OUT, 5, 5, 16 (5-45, 2-17, OUT, 4-40, 1-11, 10-122), Marcus Williams 4, 3, 9, 4, 5, 7 (2-29, 3-36-1, 6-127-1, 4-34, 2-49, 4-20), Darryl Roberts 4 (1-1)


Observations: Matt Forte’s heavy workload continued for the second straight week with 27 total touches. It wasn’t the most efficient day (3.28 YPC), but the volume is the important factor. Forte’s snap count did drop from 84 percent to 59 percent from Week 7 to Week 8. However, he had a high touch percentage in Week 8, touching the ball on 63 percent of his snaps.


Oakland Raiders


Targets: Amari Cooper (9, 6, 12, 13, 5, 15), Michael Crabtree (11, 12, 7, 4, 11, 16), Seth Roberts (6, 3, 3, 6, 9, 7), Clive Walford (3, 4, 0, 2, 2, 4), Latavius Murray (1, 2, 0, 0, 5, 7), Jalen Richard (1, 3, 7, 3, 1, 2), DeAndre Washington (1, 3, 6, 1, 2, 0), Andre Holmes (1, 0, 3, 2, 1, 1), Mychal Rivera (0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 3), Jamize Olawale (1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2), Lee Smith (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Taiwan Jones (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Johnny Holton (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Latavius Murray (10, 8, 0, 0, 18, 11), DeAndre Washington (6, 5, 9, 10, 5, 5), Jalen Richard (6, 2, 8, 4, 1, 5), Derek Carr (1, 3, 2, 3, 4, 1), Jamize Olawale (1, 1, 6, 0, 3, 1), Johnny Holton (1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 1), Taiwan Jones (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Michael Crabtree (0, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2), Seth Roberts (1, 1, 1, 0, 2, 1), Amari Cooper (0, 0, 2, 1, 1, 1), Andre Holmes (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Latavius Murray (0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 1), Clive Walford (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Jalen Richard (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Mychal Rivera (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1), Jamize Olawale (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Latavius Murray (0, 1, 0, 0, 5, 0), DeAndre Washington (0, 0, 2, 1, 0, 0), Jamize Olawale (0, 0, 1, 0, 2, 0)


CBs Thrown At:  David Amerson 11, 6, 5, 6, 4, 11 (4-38, 3-61-1, 4-148-1, 5-57, 3-31, 6-67), D.J. Hayden 8, 6 (6-66, 2-18)


Observations: The Raiders’ passing game had a massive Sunday as Derek Carr threw for 513 yards and four touchdowns. Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper combined for 31 targets, 20 receptions,  281 receiving yards and one touchdown. The “running game” leaves much to be desired for the Raiders. Latavius Murray is the only RB on the roster with stand-alone value, but he’s a mid-range RB2 at best.


Pittsburgh Steelers – Bye Week


Targets: Antonio Brown (18, 5, 11, 8, 11, 0), Le’Veon Bell (0, 6, 11, 7, 13, 0), Sammie Coates (4, 8, 11, 4, 1, 0), Jesse James (4, 2, 8, 3, 2, 0), DeAngelo Williams (7, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Eli Rogers (5, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0), Xavier Grimble (0, 2, 2, 3, 5, 0), Darrius Heyward-Bey (1, 1, 0, 2, 7, 0), Markus Wheaton (5, 1, 3, 0, 0, 0), Cobi Hamilton (0, 0, 0, 2, 6, 0), David Johnson (0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0), Fitzgerald Toussaint (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

CBs Thrown At: Ross Cockrell 8, 2, 4, 11, 7, 1 (3-40, 2-20, 4-44, 7-96-1, 3-18, 1-5), William Gay 7, 8, 9, 1, 6, 1 (4-48, 6-43-1, 5-52, 0-0, 4-62, 1-3)


Observations: Bye Week.  


San Diego Chargers


Targets: Travis Benjamin (7, 7, 11, 5, 5, 9), Tyrell Williams (9, 8, 6, 3, 10, 6), Antonio Gates (0, 0, 5, 6, 10, 9), Dontrelle Inman (4, 11, 3, 1, 6, 7), Melvin Gordon (7, 7, 1, 2, 7, 7), Hunter Henry (5, 7, 4, 8, 3, 4), Dexter McCluster (3, 3, 0, 2, 2, 1), Danny Woodhead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Keenan Allen (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Derek Watt (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1), Griff Whalen (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1), Kenneth Farrow (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Sean McGrath (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: Melvin Gordon (16, 19, 16, 27, 22, 23), Danny Woodhead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Kenneth Farrow (0, 0, 0, 2, 2, 3), Philip Rivers (1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Dexter McCluster (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), Kellen Clemens (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Derek Watt (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Travis Benjamin (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: Antonio Gates (0, 0, 1, 2, 3, 3), Tyrell Williams (2, 2, 0, 2, 1, 0), Hunter Henry (0, 2, 1, 2, 2, 2), Dexter McCluster (3, 2, 0, 1, 1, 0), Travis Benjamin (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1), Melvin Gordon (1, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0), Danny Woodhead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Dontrelle Inman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Griff Whalen (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: Melvin Gordon (3, 6, 4, 5, 4, 4), Danny Woodhead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Kenneth Farrow (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Dexter McCluster (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At:  Casey Hayward 1, 5, 9, 7, 13, 9 (0-0, 4-44, 6-83-1, 4-21, 7-82, 5-80), Brandon Flowers 8 (2-44)


Observations: Hunter Henry’s target share and snap counts have taken a hit in nearly every game since Antonio Gates has been getting healthier.  Although, they have each received nine red zone targets in the last six weeks. Travis Benjamin is getting a second opinion on his sprained PCL. If he were to miss time, Tyrell Williams’ volume would see a major uptick. The Chargers get the Titans in Week 9.


Tennessee Titans


Targets: Tajae Sharpe (7, 7, 4, 3, 6, 1), Delanie Walker (0, 8, 8, 2, 8, 5), Rishard Matthews (8, 2, 4, 3, 7, 4), DeMarco Murray (5, 2, 6, 2, 5, 2), Andre Johnson (3, 5, 4, 0, 2, 0), Kendall Wright (0, 3, 1, 9, 4, 5), Derrick Henry (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 5), Harry Douglas (4, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Anthony Fasano (0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 0), Phillip Supernaw (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 1), Jace Amaro (4, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jalston Fowler (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


Carries: DeMarco Murray (16, 25, 27, 21, 25, 21), Derrick Henry (10, 3, 7, 2, 1, 16), Marcus Mariota (3, 4, 7, 7, 2, 3), Matt Cassel (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Kendall Wright (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Tajae Sharpe (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


RZ Targets: DeMarco Murray (1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 2), Delanie Walker (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), Rishard Matthews (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1), Tajae Sharpe (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Andre Johnson (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Harry Douglas (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Derrick Henry (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Anthony Fasano (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Jalston Fowler (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)


RZ Carries: DeMarco Murray (2, 6, 3, 4, 5, 4), Derrick Henry (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 7), Marcus Mariota (0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 1), Tajae Sharpe (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)


CBs Thrown At: Jason McCourty 6, 3, 3, 10, 4, 14 (2-26, 1-6, 2-61, 6-52, 2-57-1, 9-98), Brice McCain 0, 5, 4, 8 (0-0, 4-44-1, 2-29, 6-76-2), Antwon Blake 9 (5-45)


Observations: Derrick Henry’s 16 carries may look nice in the box score, but the game script had an influence on his workload as the Titans were up 27-0 at halftime. Tajae Sharpe saw a single target in this game. Kendall Wright leads Titans’ WRs in targets with 18 in the last three weeks. Delanie Walker is the only pass-catcher I’d feel comfortable with as an every-week starter.
