Target Practice, Week 7 

Welcome to Target Practice, Week 6.

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.

Vincent Jackson leads all receivers with 22 targets, and he’s making a strong connection with first year QB, Mike Glennon for Tampa Bay, who’s QB rating continues to improve each week.  With the Doug Martin injury, Glennon has one less weapon, so Vincent Jackson should continue to be a top target.

Rob Gronkowski made his triumphant return to the Patriots; although, it was a loss to the New York Jets.  He picked up right where he left off being one of the top TE targets in the league coming in with 17 targets.

Other studs Dez Bryant ate up a weak Philly secondary with 16 targets and Calvin Johnson picked up another 15 targets against a stout Cincy defense.

Other players with double digit targets:

13: Eric Decker, Steve Johnson, Cecil Shorts    12: Jason Avant, Wes Welker, Kendall Wright   11: Brian Hartline, T.Y. Hilton

10: Jarret Boykin, Michael Floyd, Greg Jennings, Jeremy Kerley, Brandon Marshall, Hakeem Nicks, Mike Wallace, Nate Washington

Good luck in Week 8!
