2015 Fantasy Football: Week 7 Target Report

The target list is comprised of players making the standard rule of seven or more targets each week. You will notice TTL and AVG, which represents how many total targets (TTL) and the average number of targets (AVG) a player receives each week. I also put a short summary on how each player on this target list is performing.

Week 7 brought us some newcomers to this list. Players such as Robert Woods and Chris Hogan 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, and Keenan Allen is third. Players such as Danny Amendola and Zach Ertz are starting to impress, and some are just flat out inconsistent. Welcome back to the list Nate Washington, Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Reed, Darren Sproles, and Ted Ginn. Congrats to those that haven’t left the list this season: Brandon Marshall, Jordan Matthews, and T.Y. Hilton. All numbers are brought to you by  FantasyPros.
