2013 Fantasy Football: Week 7 Target Practice

Key: I – Player missed game or left game early due to injury. S – Player was suspended for game. A – Player was inactive. B – Bye week. Most notable players who missed a game due to injury or benching are marked with an S or A. If a lesser-known player (for example Kory Sperry) was inactive, etc., I just put a 0 in his weekly spot because I don’t know if that player was just inactive, hurt, etc. Ownership numbers will be listed in parentheses with ESPN first, then Yahoo!

Arizona

Jaron Brown: 2-0-2-2-0-1-2 (9) Jim Dray: 2-7-0-1-2-2-2 (16) Andre Ellington: 3-2-6-6-4-5-5 (31) Larry Fitzgerald: 14-5-6-9-6-12-5 (57) Michael Floyd: 6-7-6-10-7-6-10 (52) Brittan Golden: 0-0-0-0-0-3-0 (3) Rob Housler: 0-0-3-2-2-5-7 (19) Rashard Mendenhall: 1-2-1-4-2-1-0 (11) Patrick Peterson: 1-0-0-0-0-0-1 (2) Andre Roberts: 9-8-4-2-1-4-8 (36) Alfonso Smith: 1-0-1-1-3-1-4 (11) Kory Sperry: 1-0-0-0-0-0-0 (1) Stepfan Taylor: 0-0-1-0-0-0-0 (1)

Floyd (69, 61) led Arizona in targets again. He’s on pace for 73 catches and 950 yards, and the Cardinals are pretty much always throwing.

Atlanta

Kevin Cone: 0-0-0-0-1-B-0 (1) Drew Davis: 0-0-1-0-0-B-1 (2) Patrick DiMarco: 0-0-0-0-2-B-0 (2) Harry Douglas: 6-5-6-6-4-B-7 (34) Bradie Ewing: 1-0-0-0-0-B-0 (1) Tony Gonzalez: 6-8-5-14-14-B-4 (51) Steven Jackson: 8-2-I-I-I-B-I (10) Darius Johnson: 0-0-0-0-0-B-3 (3) Julio Jones: 9-15-12-13-11-B (60) Brian Robiskie: A-A-A-A-A-B-1 (1) Jacquizz Rodgers: 1-4-3-6-4-B-9 (27) Jason Snelling: 3-4-5-3-5-B-0 (20) Levine Toilolo: 0-0-1-2-2-B-0 (5) Roddy White: 2-3-4-9-4-B-I (22)

Douglas (37, 49) finished second in Atlanta targets this week, catching all seven balls thrown his way for 149 yards and a touchdown. The Falcons are really thin at receiver, so even when White returns Douglas should still see a good amount of targets. I’d want Floyd over him, though. Rodgers caught eight of nine targets and had two touchdowns. He didn’t do anything on the ground (8 for 16) and now has four touchdowns in the past two games despite averaging just 3.2 yards a carry. Try to trade him.

Baltimore

Billy Bajema: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Marlon Brown: 6-6-3-8-I-7-4 (34) Dallas Clark: 12-1-7-9-0-6-4 (39) Ed Dickson: 0-5-0-3-2-0-2 (12) Tandon Doss: A-A-A-9-5-6-3 (23) Jacoby Jones: 4-I-I-I-I-2-8 (14) Kyle Juszczyk: 0-0-0-0-1-0-0 (1) Vonta Leach: 4-0-2-2-1-2-1 (12) Bernard Pierce: 1-1-2-1-0-2-1 (8) Ray Rice: 11-3-I-1-7-4-5 (31) Torrey Smith: 8-13-9-12-9-4-6 (61) Brandon Stokley: 10-5-1-0-0-0-0 (16) Deonte Thompson: A-A-A-5-7-0-0 (12)

Jones led Baltimore in targets this week, but he only caught four of them. Clark has a score in two straight games, but he averaged just three yards a catch this week. Outside of Smith there’s not much to be interested here except in deep leagues.

Buffalo

Scott Chandler: 6-6-6-3-6-4-3 (34) Tashard Choice: 0-1-1-0-0-3-1 (6) Marcus Easley: 0-0-0-0-1-0-0 (1) T.J. Graham: 1-3-5-3-4-6-2 (24) Fred Jackson: 5-6-5-0-6-5-5 (32) Steve Johnson: 6-10-13-6-3-I-13 (41) Marquise Goodwin: 1-0-0-0-0-3-0 (4) Chris Hogan: 0-0-0-0-5-3-0 (8) Lee Smith: 0-0-0-2-1-0-1 (4) CJ Spiller: 6-5-1-0-0-2-3 (17) Frank Summers: 0-2-0-0-0-0-0 (2) Robert Woods: 2-6-10-8-14-6-4 (50)

Johnson’s 13 targets were by far the most for Buffalo. He caught six for 61 yards, so it’s good to see he’s still being targeted and producing even with a new quarterback. If you lost a wide receiver recently, hit up Johnson’s owner and see if you can get him at a good price. He should be able to produce consistently as long as he’s healthy.

Carolina

Kenjon Barner: 0-0-0-B-2-0-0 (2) Armanti Edwards: 0-2-0-B-2-0-0 (4) Ted Ginn: 1-8-4-B-5-3-2 (23) Domenik Hixon: 0-0-1-B-0-0-0 (1) Brandon Lafell: 0-6-5-B-9-4-4 (28) Greg Olsen: 10-8-8-B-6-4-4 (40) Steve Smith: 8-11-7-B-10-7-6 (49) Mike Tolbert: 1-3-0-B-1-3-0 (8) DeAngelo Williams: 3-0-2-B-3-5-1 (14)

Smith caught five of six targets and was ruled down at the half-yard line on one, so he was very close to having another touchdown. He was targeted in the red zone at least twice, which is a good sign.

Chicago

Joe Anderson: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Earl Bennett: 1-2-3-4-3-2-4 (19) Martellus Bennett: 6-9-5-12-5-7-3 (47) Michael Bush: 1-0-1-0-0-2-0 (4) Tony Fiammetta: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Matt Forte: 6-11-4-6-6-6-3 (42) Alshon Jeffery: 8-5-8-11-13-5-7 (57) Steve Maneri: 0-0-1-0-0-0-0 (1) Brandon Marshall: 10-10-8-14-5-11-10 (68) Dante Rosario: 0-0-0-0-1-0-0 (1) Marquess Wilson: 0-0-0-0-0-0-1 (1)

Jeffery was extremely productive after Jay Cutler left Sunday’s game. Jeffery caught all four of his passes for 105 yards with Luke McCown in the game, and all four were extremely nice plays – a 20-yard screen, deep passes of 28- and 20-yards caught in traffic, and a 35-yarder that Jeffery broke at least two tackles during. Cutler’s out for a few weeks, but the Bears will be throwing a good amount because their receivers are just too good not to.

Cincinnati

Gio Bernard: 2-2-4-7-3-7-6 (31) Tyler Eifert: 5-5-2-5-7-3-4 (31) A.J. Green: 13-14-8-15-8-11-8 (77) BenJarvus Green-Ellis: 1-1-0-0-1-1-0 (4) Jermaine Gresham: 5-9-5-5-4-4-5 (37) Marvin Jones: 2-4-4-3-2-5-6 (26) Mohamed Sanu: 5-8-5-6-2-6-2 (34) Dane Sanzenbacher: 0-0-0-1-0-1-1 (3) Alex Smith: 0-1-0-0-0-0-0 (1) Brandon Tate: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1)

Jones is virtually unowned, but he’s averaging 55 yards in the last three weeks as well as a nice 18.5 yards a catch.

Cleveland

Gary Barnidge: 1-0-0-1-1-3-1 (7) Travis Benjamin: 8-0-0-1-1-2-0 (12) Davone Bess: 10-8-10-6-5-3-6 (48) Jordan Cameron: 13-7-11-12-5-6-9 (63) Josh Gordon: S-S-19-9-6-9-6 (49) Marqueis Gray: 0-0-0-0-0-0-1 (1) Tori Gurley: 2-0-0-0-0-0-0 (2) Greg Little: 10-12-8-2-5-5-9 (51) Willis McGahee: A-A-A-0-2-1-1 (4) Chris Ogbonnaya: 3-0-5-5-2-12-2 (29) Bobby Rainey: 0-0-1-2-1-0-0 (4) Fozzy Whittaker: 0-0-0-0-0-0-5 (5) Trent Richardson: 6 5 (Week 3 trade)

Gordon only had two catches, but was blanketed most of the day by a good Green Bay secondary. However, he had three targets in the end zone and two more within the red zone. The Browns have no running game, so Gordon’s targets will keep coming. Don’t panic.

Dallas

Miles Austin: 12-4-5-I-I-4-3 (28) Cole Beasley: 0-0-1-3-4-5-7 (20) Dez Bryant: 8-13-6-9-10-8-16 (70) Gavin Escobar: 2-1-2-0-3-0-1 (9) James Hanna: 0-5-0-0-1-1-0 (7) Dwayne Harris: 3-0-1-2-2-0-0 (8) DeMarco Murray: 10-6-3-5-1-2-I (27) Joseph Randle: 0-0-0-0-0-2-4 (6) Phillip Tanner: 1-0-0-0-0-0-2 (3) Terrance Williams: 4-3-0-8-4-2-7 (28) Jason Witten: 9-8-6-10-10-5-6 (54)

Beasley is mostly unowned too, but his targets have increased lately and he’s caught at least four passes for 44 yards in each of the last three games. I know it’s not much, but he can be had in almost any deep league. Williams (50, 49) has scored in three straight and has at least 71 yards in three of his last four.
Denver

Montee Ball: 0-2-0-0-0-2-0 (4) Andre Caldwell: 1-1-0-2-0-0-0 (4) Eric Decker: 7-13-8-7-8-7-13 (63) Joel Dreessen: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Virgil Green: 0-1-2-1-0-0-0 (4) Ronnie Hillman: 2-1-1-3-4-2-1 (14) Knowshown Moreno: 3-3-2-1-5-10-6 (30) Jacob Tamme: 0-0-1-0-0-0-1 (2) Demaryius Thomas: 11-6-11-10-6-5-9 (58) Julius Thomas: 7-9-4-4-12-7-6 (49) Wes Welker: 11-8-8-9-6-8-12 (62)

 

Detroit

Joique Bell: 6-8-5-4-4-2-4 (33) Ryan Broyles: I-I-3-1-2-2-4 (12) Nate Burleson: 6-8-9-I-I-I-I (23) Reggie Bush: 8-4-I-6-6-6-5 (35) Kris Durham: 2-2-3-4-8-13-8 (40) Pat Edwards: 3-0-0-0-5-3-0 (11) Joseph Fauria: 3-0-3-0-0-3-4 (13) Calvin Johnson: 9-8-13-10-I-8-15 (63) Kevin Ogletree: (Acquired from Tampa Bay, Week 5) A-A-A-A-3-2-2 (7) Brandon Pettigrew: 4-6-2-7-5-4-7 (35) Tony Scheffler: 1-0-2-2-7-0-0 (12)

Durham (unowned) finished second in targets here and caught five of them for 41 yards. Unimpressive, but his numbers have been steady recently.

Green Bay

Jarrett Boykin: 0-0-0-B-0-6-10 (16) Randall Cobb: 12-10-11-B-8-4-I (45) Jermichael Finley: 8-7-1-B-6-7-5 (34) Johnathan Franklin: 0-0-3-B-0-1-1 (5) James Jones: 2-12-8-B-6-1-I (29) Eddie Lacy: 2-I-I-B-1-1-7 (11) John Kuhn: 1-0-0-B-0-2-1 (4) Jordy Nelson: 10-4-9-B-7-10-6 (46) Andrew Quarless: 0-3-5-B-0-0-1 (9) Jeremy Ross: 0-0-2-B-0-0-0 (2) James Starks: 1-5-0-B-0-0-0 (6) Ryan Taylor: 0-0-3-B-1-0-0 (4) Myles White: 0-0-0-B-0-0-2 (2)

Boykin (1, 30) wasn’t too flashy Sunday, but he caught eight for 103 yards. He had a 21-yarder wiped out due to a hold and was tackled at the 1 on another catch. On his touchdown his defender slipped, which allowed him in the end zone so I guess it all evens out. As long as he’s starting he’s going to be worth playing.

Houston

Owen Daniels: 7-5-9-11-9-I-I (43) Arian Foster: 8-4-2-8-5-7-0 (34) Garrett Graham: 5-5-0-6-5-4-8 (33) Ryan Griffin: A-A-A-1-0-3-0 (4) DeAndre Hopkins: 6-13-7-3-4-5-4 (42) Lestar Jean: 0-0-0-0-0-2-2 (4) Andre Johnson: 16-13-6-12-10-8-6 (71) Greg Jones: A-A-A-1-1-2-0 (4) Keshawn Martin: 0-2-3-6-1-2-0 (14) DeVier Posey: 0-0-4-0-2-1-2 (9) Ben Tate: 2-4-4-1-2-4-3 (20)

Looks like Johnson (four for 89) should be OK to start even with Case Keenum starting.

Indianapolis

Vick Ballard: 2-0-0-0-0-0-0 (2) Ahmad Bradshaw: 1-3-4-I-I-I-I (8) Donald Brown: 0-0-1-2-2-2-3 (10) Jack Doyle: 0-0-0-0-0-0-2 (2) Coby Fleener: 1-8-2-7-3-6-5 (32) Stanley Havili: 0-0-1-2-0-1-2 (6) Darrius Heyward-Bey: 4-5-5-6-6-2-7 (35) T.Y. Hilton: 5-12-4-9-6-8-11 (55) Robert Hughes: 0-0-0-0-2-0-0 (2) Dominique Jones: 0-2-0-1-0-0-0 (3) Trent Richardson 0-0-3-1-1-2-0 (7) Reggie Wayne: 8-8-7-11-9-8-8 (59) Griff Whalen: 0-3-0-0-0-0-0 (3) Dwayne Allen: 2 0 0 (out for season)

Fleener caught all five targets for 38 yards, and with Wayne out for the year now he should see more targets and become more reliable.

Jacksonville

Justin Blackmon: S-S-S-S-9-20-9 (38) Mike Brown: 3-0-0-0-0-5-8 (16) Stephen Burton: 0-3-9-0-0-0-0 (12) Jeremy Ebert: 0-0-0-3-2-0-0 (5) Justin Forsett: 5-0-0-0-0-3-1 (9) Clay Harbor: 1-4-1-8-5-3-0 (22) Maurice Jones-Drew: 2-1-5-1-3-2-2 (16) Marcedes Lewis: 0-0-0-0-0-0-3 (3) Allen Reisner: 5-2-1-1-0-0-0 (9) Denard Robinson: 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Ace Sanders: 9-7-3-8-1-3-0 (31) Cecil Shorts: 11-14-15-12-10-1-13 (76) Will Ta’ufo’ou: 1-0-1-0-1-3-0 (6) Jordan Todman: 4-0-0-0-0-0-0 (4) D.J. Williams: 0-0-1-0-1-0-0 (2) Stephen Williams: 0-0-0-0-0-2-0 (2)

Brown caught five for 120, but Blackmon and Shorts are still the only ones you want.

Kansas City

Donnie Avery: 5-4-7-10-4-4-4 (38) Dwayne Bowe: 6-8-3-7-6-4-9 (43) Kevin Brock: 0-0-1-2-2-1 (6) Jamaal Charles: 6-10-8-11-9-9-4 (57) Knile Davis: 1-0-0-0-1-1 (3) Anthony Fasano: 5-2-0-0-o-I-5 (12) Cyrus Gray: 1-0-0-0-0-0 (1) Chad Hall: 0-0-1-0-4-0 (5) Junior Hemingway: 1-0-1-0-1-1 (4) A.J. Jenkins: 0-0-2-0-1-1 (4) Dexter McCluster: 5-4-4-5-3-5-5 (31) Sean McGrath: 0-4-4-5-6-3-2 (24) Anthony Sherman: 4-0-2-1-2-0-4 (13)

Bowe’s five for 66 represent his best weekly reception and yardage totals for this year.

Miami

Charles Clay: 6-7-6-6-6-B-3 (34) Michael Egnew: 0-0-1-0-1-B-0 (2) Brandon Gibson: 10-2-8-8-5-B-8 (41) Brian Hartline: 14-8-6-4-7-B-11 (50) Rishard Matthews: 0-0-4-2-0-B-1 (7) Lamar Miller: 1-2-3-3-0-B-3 (12) Dion Sims: 0-0-1-1-0-B-0 (2) Marcus Thigpen: 0-0-0-2-1-B-0 (3) Daniel Thomas: 1-1-1-1-2-B-1 (7) Mike Wallace: 5-11-5-7-16-B-10 (54)

Gibson (1, 4) caught his first two touchdowns this season Sunday and has been pretty consistent the entire year.

Minnesota

John Carlson: 1-2-2-2-B-2-2 (11) Jerome Felton: 0-0-0-0-0-0-2 (2) Toby Gerhart: 0-0-2-1-B-2-3 (8) Greg Jennings: 7-6-6-4-B-10-10 (43) Zach Line: 1-0-1-0-B-I Cordarrelle Patterson: 1-2-4-2-B-2-6 (17) Adrian Peterson: 4-2-6-1-B-4-4 (21) Kyle Rudolph: 4-6-8-2-B-11-9 (40) Jerome Simpson: 8-5-8-11-B-7-9 (48) Joe Webb: 0-0-1-1-B-4-1 (7) Jarius Wright: 2-2-4-1-B-2-5 (16)

Seeing the amount of targets Jennings, Simpson and Rudolph received Mondy in Josh Freeman’s first Minnesota start could make one giddy thinking about future production. But Jennings’ 10 targets only led to four receptions, and Simpson and Rudolph only caught a third of their intended targets. Freeman had 33 incompletions, a staggering number. There’s simply no way I’d feel comfortable starting any non-Peterson Viking.

New England

Danny Amendola: 14-I-I-I-9-4-I (27) LeGarrette Blount: 0-1-0-0-0-1-0 (2) Brandon Bolden: 0-0-6-1-0-3-3 (13) Josh Boyce: 2-0-1-3-0-0-0 (6) Austin Collie: I-I-I-I-I-2-5 (7) James Develin: 0-1-0-1-0-0-0 (2) Aaron Dobson: 0-10-10-3-4-10-7 (34) Julian Edelman: 9-18-7-9-7-11-7 (68) Rob Gronkowski: I-I-I-I-I-I-17 (17) Michael Hoomanawanui: 2-0-2-0-2-4-0 (10) Matthew Mulligan: 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Stevan Ridley: 0-0-0-2-0-1-2 (5) Zach Sudfeld: 1 I 2 (Released)  Kenbrell Thompkins: 14-7-7-11-4-6-5 (54) Shane Vereen: 10-I-I-I-I-I-I (10)

With Gronk back Edelman finished tied for second in targets here. He’s probably still startable in most leagues, but in shallower leagues you’ve probably got a better option(s).

New Orleans

Travaris Cadet: 0-0-0-0-0-1-B (1) Jed Collins: 0-0-1-1-5-1-B (8) Marques Colston: 6-7-8-8-2-3-B (36) Jimmy Graham: 7-16-15-4-11-6-B (59) Mark Ingram: 0-1-0-0-0-0-B (1) Robert Meachem: 0-0-2-1-1-1-B (5) Lance Moore: 4-4-3-I-I-I-B Darren Sproles: 6-8-6-8-3-12-B (43) Kenny Stills: 5-0-2-6-2-3-B (18) Pierre Thomas: 4-5-6-6-9-1-B (31) Nick Toon: 0-0-0-2-1-4-B (7) Ben Watson: 3-0-2-2-1-4-B (12)

New York Giants

John Conner: 0-0-0-0-0-0-5 (5) Michael Cox: 0-0-0-0-0-0-2 (2) Victor Cruz: 8-11-8-16-12-5-7 (67) Larry Donnell: 0-3-0-0-0-1 (4) Peyton Hillis: 0-0-0-0-0-0-6 (6) Henry Hynoski: 1-0-1-0-0-0 (2) Brandon Jacobs: 0-1-0-1-3-2 (7) Jerrel Jernigan: 0-0-1-0-3-0 (4) Louis Murphy: 0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Brandon Myers: 9-10-6-1-5-1-3 (35) Hakeem Nicks: 8-7-1-9-12-8-10 (55) Rueben Randle: 6-9-4-4-13-5-3 (44) Da’Rel Scott: 8-4-3-2-A-2 (19 Bear Pascoe: 0-2-2-1-0-2-2 (9) David Wilson: 1-1-0-3-1-I (5)

Nicks caught just two of 10 targets while dealing with a jammed finger he suffered in Week 2. He almost hauled in a touchdown, but remains scoreless on the year. Look elsewhere for production until he picks it up. Randle caught his fourth touchdown in three games Monday and caught all three of his targets. He’s a strong play for Week 8 against Philly, whom he torched for 96 yards and two touchdowns two weeks ago.

New York Jets

Tommy Bohanon: 2-0-1-3-0-0-0 (6) Jeff Cumberland: 0-0-3-1-4-5-7 (20) Clyde Gates: 4-8-1-3-1-7-0 (24) Mike Goodson: S-S-S-S-2-1  Alex Green: 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Stephen Hill: 9-8-6-1-2-8-5 (39) Santonio Holmes: 3-6-10-5-II-I (24) Chris Ivory: 2-0-0-I-0-0-2 (4) Jeremy Kerley: 4-0-5-5-6-7-10 (37) David Nelson: A-A-A-A-2-1-7 (10) Ben Obomanu: 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Bilal Powell: 5-5-3-5-2-3-2 (25) Konrad Reuland: 1-0-0-0-0-2-0 (3) Kellen Winslow: 8-6-0-9-1-A-A (24)

Kerley (3, 8) led the Jets in targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns Sunday, and has at least four catches and 65 yards in three of his last four.

Oakland

Brice Butler: 1-3-4-3-1-1-B (13) Jacoby Ford: 2-2-1-0-2-2-B (9) Andre Holmes: 0-0-0-0-0-1-B (1) Rashad Jennings: 0-2-2-8-0-2-B (14) Jeron Mastrud: 1-0-0-2-0-2-B (5) Darren McFadden: 5-4-1-0-I-3-B (13) Denarius Moore: 7-2-11-6-8-10-B (44) Jamize Olawale: 0-0-0-1-2-0-B (3) Marcel Reece: 2-0-5-2-3-3-B (15) Mychal Rivera: 3-3-3-6-3-3-B (21) Jeremy Stewart: 0-0-0-1-1-0-B (2) Rod Streater: 8-4-4-3-3-7-B (29)

Philadelphia

Jason Avant: 3-7-8-4-7-6-12 (47) Bryce Brown: 0-1-0-3-2-2-1 (9) Brent Celek: 3-1-5-6-3-1-4 (23) Zach Ertz: 3-2-1-2-3-6-5 (22) James Casey: 0-1-0-1-0-0-0 (2) Riley Cooper: 6-3-7-2-1-6-7 (32) DeSean Jackson: 9-15-7-6-12-6-8 (63) Damaris Johnson: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Jeff Maehl: 0-0-0-2-0-1-4 (7) LeSean McCoy: 1-6-1-3-8-2-7 (28) Chris Polk: 0-0-0-2-0-0-0 (2)

Even if Nick Foles misses a game or two with his concussion and Matt Barkley starts Jackson is still start-worthy. Don’t bench your studs unless you’ve got comparable options.

Pittsburgh

Le’Veon Bell: I-I-I-5-B-3-1 (9) Antonio Brown: 7-9-13-12-B-11-7 (59) Jerricho Cotchery: 7-9-4-6-B-0-4 (30) Jonathan Dwyer: 0-0-3-0-B-0-0 (3) David Johnson: 1-1-3-1-B-0-0 (6) Will Johnson: 0-0-1-0-B-3-1 (5) Felix Jones: 0-0-2-1-B-1-1 (5) Heath Miller: I-I-4-8-B-7-4 (23) Derek Moye: 0-1-0-0-B-0-2 (3) David Paulson: 0-4-2-0-B-0-1 (7) Isaac Redman: 3-2-0-0-B-0-0 (5) Emmanuel Sanders: 12-10-8-8-B-6-2 (46) Larod Stephens-Howling: 3-0-0-0-B-0-0 (3) Markus Wheaton: 0-0-1-5-B-0-0 (6)

Miller (21, 59) caught his first 2013 touchdown Sunday and has at least a touchdown or 70 yards in each of his last three. He’s Big Ben’s No. 2 receiver.

San Diego

Keenan Allen: 0-3-1-6-9-12-6 (37) Ronnie Brown: 2-1-0-0-3-0-0 (6) Vincent Brown: 4-7-3-9-9-4-2 (36) Malcom Floyd: 5-6-I-I-I-I (11) Antonio Gates: 4-10-7-10-10-8-6 (55) Ladarius Green: 0-0-2-0-1-1-3 (7) Ryan Mathews: 2-1-0-4-0-1 (8) Le’Ron McClain: 0-0-1-0-0-1-0 (2) John Phillips: 0-0-0-1-0-0-1 (2) Eddie Royal: 6-8-2-3-8-0-4 (33) Danny Woodhead: 3-9-8-7-9-5-4 (45)

Allen had three end-zone targets, two of which were tough but catchable. But the rookie still tied for San Diego’s lead in targets and averaged over 22 yards a catch. Better days are ahead.

San Francisco

Jon Baldwin: A-A-A-2-2-2-0 (6) Anquan Boldin: 17-4-8-7-6-8-6 (56) Garrett Celek: 0-0-2-0-0-0-0 (2) Vernon Davis: 9-5-I-4-6-11-8 (45) Anthony Dixon: 0-0-0-0-0-1-0 (1) Frank Gore: 2-3-4-2-0-0-3 (14) Kendall Hunter: 0-0-1-1-0-1-0 (3) Vance McDonald: 2-2-3-2-0-1-2 (12) Bruce Miller: 2-5-1-3-1-2-1 (15) Marlon Moore: 0-1-0-A-0-1-0 (2) Quinton Patton: 0-0-1-1-0-0-0 (2) Kyle Williams: 6-6-6-1-0-2-1 (22)

Seattle

Doug Baldwin: 8-1-2-4-9-4-1 (29) Derrick Coleman: 3-0-0-1-0-1-1 (6) Kellen Davis: 0-0-2-0-0-1-1 (4) Jermaine Kearse: 2-0-1-1-1-3-3 (11) Marshawn Lynch: 3-3-0-3-2-5-3 (19) Zach Miller: 4-4-3-3-0-0-7 (21) Sidney Rice: 3-5-5-5-4-4-4 (30) Golden Tate: 7-2-7-5-11-7-7 (46) Robert Turbin: 2-1-1-0-0-2-0 (6) Stephen Williams: 1-0-0-1-0-0-0 (2) Luke Willson: 0-1-5-0-4-3-2 (15)

Tate’s owned in over 70 percent of leagues, but part of me wonders why that number is so high. If he wasn’t in Seattle that number would be fine, but on such a defense- and run-dominant team the chances are targets/catches are limited. See if there’s a better option out on the wire.

St. Louis

Tavon Austin: 7-12-7-8-6-1-5 (46) Stedman Bailey: 0-0-1-0-0-0-0 (1) Jared Cook: 10-6-7-9-3-2-7 (43) Benny Cunningham: 0-0-3-1-0-0-0 (4) Chris Givens: 3-8-8-8-7-4-2 (40) Cory Harkey: 0-0-1-0-2-1-2 (6) Lance Kendricks: 4-3-5-1-6-2-3 (24) Mike McNeill: 0-1-0-0-0-0-0 (1) Isaiah Pead: S-4-7-S-1-0-0 (12) Austin Pettis: 6-11-5-9-5-1-4 (41) Brian Quick: 2-1-4-3-2-2-6 (20) Daryl Richardson: 6-6-0-2-1-1-1 (17) Zac Stacy: 0-0-0-0-1-2-4 (7)

Stacy has three straight productive games and caught all four of his targets Sunday. With Sam Bradford out for the year the Rams should rely more on the run game, but how effective it is remains to be determined. Stacy should be owned in all leagues, but he’s now just a flex-play.

Tampa Bay

Nate Byham: 1-1-1-0-B-0-0 (3) Tom Crabtree: 0-0-0-0-B-1-2 (3) Jeff Demps: 0-0-0-1-B-2-0 (3) Vincent Jackson: 13-11-6-11-B-14-22 (77) Mike James: 0-0-0-1-B-0-3 (4) Brian Leonard: 1-0-2-2-B-1-2 (8) Erik Lorig: 0-0-1-2-B-0-0 (3) Doug Martin: 6-1-6-4-B-4-3 (24) Kevin Ogletree: 2-3-6-9 (Acquired by Detroit) Chris Owusu: 0-0-0-0-B-4-3 (7) Eric Page: 0-0-5-0-B-0-0 (5) Tiquan Underwood: A-A-A-A-B-4-1 (5) Mike Williams: 8-6-9-6-B-I-5 (34) Timothy Wright: 0-0-2-6-B-9-3 (20)

Martin is out indefinitely so James should see the majority of touches at RB.

Tennessee

Jackie Battle: 0-0-0-0-2-0-1 (3) Kenny Britt: 2-9-5-I-6-1-2 (25) Justin Hunter: 0-0-2-1-3-1-2 (9) Chris Johnson: 0-1-2-2-5-4-4 (18) Collin Mooney: 0-0-0-1-0-0-0 (1) Michael Preston: 0-0-1-0-0-0-0 (1) Darius Reynaud: 0-0-0-0-0-0-2 (2) Craig Stevens: 1-0-0-0-0-0-0 (1) Delanie Walker: 4-2-8-4-6-5-5 (34) Nate Washington: 7-5-10-8-8-4-10 (52) Damian Williams: 2-0-2-7-2-5-3 (21) Kendall Wright: 4-11-6-9-8-8-12 (58)

Wright (35, 29) ranks sixth in wide receiver targets in the last four weeks, and in the last six weeks he has at least five catches and 54 yards in every game with his most recent game, nine catches for 98 yards, his best.

Washington

Fred Davis: 4-2-0-1-B-0-0 (7) Pierre Garcon: 11-13-13-7-B-15-8 (67) Leonard Hankerson: 7-3-7-7-B-6-5 (35) Roy Helu: 2-1-3-3-B-6-2 (17) Josh Morgan: 5-6-2-1-B-1-0 (15) Alfred Morris: 1-2-1-0-B-1-0 (5) Santana Moss: 9-5-9-3-B-3-2 (31) Niles Paul: 0-0-1-3-B-0-0 (4) Logan Paulson: 0-3-6-2-B-0-1 (12) Jordan Reed: 6-3-6-I-B-6-9 (30) Aldrick Robinson: 2-2-2-0-B-0-2 (8) Darrel Young: 1-0-0-2-B-0-0 (3)

Reed (3, 25) led Washington in targets this week and caught all nine of his for 134 yards. The youngster has generated a lot of recent buzz and he’s played his way into a low-end TE1 now.
