Week 17 Target WatchSaturday, December 29, 2012
Joique Bell may be one of those players you picked up and dropped more than once in your PPR leagues this season. He flashed ability and opportunity, but it never stayed consistent. Even in PPR leagues your running back has to score touchdowns and Bell's three on the season didn't cut it.
Ray Rice's overall touches and numbers are down this season in comparison to last. The two coincide enough that it looks like Rice hasn't lost anything, but that the Ravens just want to keep him fresh. That makes sense in real life at times, but makes us fake football players cry ourselves to sleep every night.
C.J. Spiller's numbers have gone up a bit since Fred Jackson was injured again. We want Spiller to touch the ball 20 times a game, but in real football that may not be what's best for him. But I do think he should at least be getting more targets to help him get out into space, which is better on his small frame that 10-15 runs between the tackles a game.
LeSean McCoy hit the target bonanza last week and showed why he is a top fantasy running back as long as he's on the field.
