Lets take a look at the Target Looks of all players, Wide Receiver Red Zone Targets, Running Back Red Zone Rushing Attempts and Tight End Red Zone Targets so far this season. These are all huge and yet rare Fantasy Football stats.
|Target Watch Through Week 8 – All Players||Targets|
Vincent Jackson remains on the top of the Target Chart so far this season after seeing 13 Targets in week 8. Rookie QB, Glennon, looks all over the field for Jackson regardless if he’s open or not. Jackson will continue to see tons of Targets. Harry Douglas led The League in Targets last week with 18. He caught 12 of them for 121 yards. Douglas remains a big PPR Play with the amount of Targets he’s receiving. Jordan Reed saw 14 Targets in Week 8, that makes 23 Targets in the last 2 games. He should be owned in all formats.

Not a big week for TE’s in the Red Zone, other than Jimmy Graham. Graham who played on a snap count all game caught both of his Red Zone Targets for 2 TD’s. Jimmy Graham only played 18 snaps in week 8 – those of you who started Graham, consider yourself lucky. Jordan Reed saw 14 Targets this week, only 1 was a Red Zone Target. Tim Wright saw 8 Targets, converting 1 for a Red Zone TD. Expect Wright to see an increase in Targets with Mike Williams now out for the season.
