2015 Fantasy Football: Week 9 Target Report

The target list is comprised of players with seven or more targets in Week 9. 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 summary on how each player on this target list is performing.

Week 9 brought us three newcomers to the target list in the names of Cole Beasley, Dorial Green-Beckham, and James Starks.  Others made another week happen as they have all season. You don’t have to go far to see Antonio Brown as a primary example of that situation. Brown hit the jackpot with 23 targets but lost Ben Roethlisberger in the process. Julio Jones, who is now first in targets, is now seven ahead of DeAndre Hopkins who had a bye. Demaryius Thomas is third.

Players such as Mike Evans, and Martavis Bryant, and Michael Crabtree are starting to impress, and some are just flat out inconsistent. Welcome back to the list Emmanuel Sanders, Steve Johnson, and Bryan Walters. Congrats to those that haven’t left the list this season: Brandon Marshall and Demaryius Thomas. T.Y. Hilton hit the rail after only getting six targets. All numbers are brought to you by FantasyPros.
