Target Practice, Week 5 

Welcome to Target Practice – Week 5

With all of the pass heavy offenses in the new look “NFL”, it’s important to see who is getting the most targets.  There could be some emerging players on this list that you can pick up before the rest of your league knows about them.

This list only covers players who have 8+ Targets, and we’ll be tracking how many 8+ target games each player has throughout the season.

We have a Mike Wallace sighting as he tops the Target Practice list in Week 5.  This is only the second time he’s made the list with 8+ targets, and many fantasy owners will be happy to see him get increased targets.  Hopefully, this will be something he can continue in future weeks.

A trifecta of budding stars follow Mike Wallace with Alshon Jeffery, Robert Woods, and Rueben Randle.  Robert Woods is entirely a rookie; however, the other two have shown flashes in the past, but they are certainly growing into the Giants/Bears offense, respectively.

Other Double digit performers:

14: Tony Gonzalez  12: Victor Cruz, DeSean Jackson, Hakeem Nicks, Julius Thomas

11: Julio Jones, Golden Tate, Jimmy Graham

10: Dez Bryant, Cecil Shorts, Andre Johnson, Steve Smith, Jason Witten, Antonio Gates

Good Luck in Week 6!
