2015 Fantasy Football: Week 5 Target Report

Week 5 brought us some newcomers to this list. Players such as Richard Rodgers got an opportunity due to injuries while others made another week happen as they have all season. You don’t have to go far to see DeAndre Hopkins as a primary example of that situation. Hopkins is far above almost anyone in targets this season. Julio Jones is second, and he is 12 behind Hopkins. Players such as Willie Snead and Gary Barnridge are starting to impress, and some are just flat out inconsistent. All numbers are brought to you by  FantasyPros.
