Targets and Touches

Week 16 NFC Targets/Touches

by Graham Barfield
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

In case you missed it, the AFC Targets and Touches column can be found here.

 

Targets and Touches will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. The data will be in descending order of games played.

 

All targets and touches data is compiled from Pro Football Reference. Cornerback data is sourced via Pro Football Focus.

 

Note: if a player has an asterisk next to a number in their data set that indicates the player was injured during the game. Also, this data will stick to fantasy relevant players meaning that running backs and wide receivers that only see one target or touch per-game will not be included.

 

Author’s note: Week 17 Targets and Touches will come out as scheduled next week (AFC on Tuesday and NFC on Wednesday) but will not include team-by-team analysis for the final week of the season.

 

Arizona Cardinals

 

Targets: Larry Fitzgerald (15, 13, 14, 11, 6, 5), Michael Floyd (9, 0, 2, 12, 9, 8), John Brown (3, 3, 7, 8, 5, 9), David Johnson (1, 2, 4, 3, 7, 4), Andre Ellington (4, 2, 5, 0, 0, 0), Kerwynn Williams (0, 0, 1)

 

RB Touches: David Johnson (0, 4, 10, 24, 24, 33), Andre Ellington (8, 3, 8, 0, 0, 0), Kerwynn Williams (6, 6, 7)

 

Red zone Targets: John Brown (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 2), Larry Fitzgerald (1, 1, 2, 0, 0, 1), Michael Floyd (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), David Johnson (0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 0), Andre Ellington (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: David Johnson (0, 0, 3, 3, 2, 3) and Andre Ellington (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Patrick Peterson 1, 6, 1, 6, 7, 2 (0-0, 2-24, 0-0, 4-40, 1-7, 2-18) and Jerraud Powers 4 (3-44)

 

Analysis: If anyone had concerns over whether or not David Johnson could be the Cards’ lead back through the playoffs and for the future, those fears were squashed in Week 15. Johnson turned his absurd 33 touches into 229 yards of total offense and three touchdowns for a nuclear 44.9 PPR points on the road against Philadelphia. He’s now rushed for 78-399-4 (5.12 YPC) over the last month.

 

Atlanta Falcons

 

Targets: Julio Jones (17, 15, 7, 17, 10, 13), Devonta Freeman (10, 0*, 0, 11, 5, 10), Roddy White (2, 9, 8, 4, 5, 4), Tevin Coleman (0, 2, 2, 1, 1, 0), Jacob Tamme (10, 3, 6, 4, 5, 1)

 

RB Touches: Devonta Freeman (20, 3*, 0, 24, 15, 32) and Tevin Coleman (1, 17, 18, 4, 4, 4)

 

Red zone Targets: Julio Jones (3, 0, 0, 4, 1, 1), Roddy White (0, 2, 0, 1, 0, 0), Devonta Freeman (2, 0, 0, 0, 1, 2), Tevin Coleman (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Jacob Tamme (1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Devonta Freeman (1, 2, 0, 2, 1, 4) and Tevin Coleman (0, 6, 2, 2, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Desmond Trufant 3, 5, 5, 6, 2, 6 (2-21, 3-25, 4-27, 4-55, 0-0, 5-103-1) and Robert Alford 0, 2, 1, 3, 10, 4 (0-0, 1-8, 1-18, 2-28, 7-139-2, 0-0)

 

Analysis: There really isn’t much to parse through here. Note that Josh Norman held Julio Jones to 4-33 (on six of his 10 targets) in coverage in Week 14. The Falcons play the Panthers for the second time this season in Week 16.

 

Carolina Panthers

 

Targets: Greg Olsen (8, 6, 9, 12, 4*, 8), Jonathan Stewart (0, 1, 4, 3, 1, 0), Ted Ginn (8, 8, 0, 10, 3, 14), Devin Funchess (2, 8, 4, 3, 5, 7), Fozzy Whittaker (2), Cameron Artis-Payne (2)

 

RB Touches: Jonathan Stewart (21, 22, 22, 24, 24, 11*), Cameron Artis-Payne (16), Fozzy Whittaker (4)

 

Red zone Targets: Greg Olsen (1, 2, 2, 0, 1, 1), Ted Ginn (0, 2, 0, 1, 0, 3), Devin Funchess (0, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3), Jonathan Stewart (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Jonathan Stewart (7, 4, 3, 5, 3, 0), Cam Newton (2, 1, 1, 3, 0, 0), Mike Tolbert (1, 3, 0, 0, 0, 1), Cameron Artis-Payne (1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Josh Norman 3, 5, 6, 5, 6, 8 (2-9, 4-33, 2-16, 2-30, 4-33, 5-28-1) and Charles Tillman 3 (2-37-1)

 

Analysis: Here was the Panthers backfield snap split without Jonathan Stewart (foot) in Week 15: Cameron Artis-Payne (32), Fozzy Whittaker (26), and Mike Tolbert (23). It’s early in the week, but it looks like J-Stew is trending towards another missed game in Week 16 as he recovers from his sprained foot. Artis-Payne will likely lead the committee again in Week 16 against Atlanta if Stewart misses.

 

Chicago Bears

 

Targets: Alshon Jeffery (4, 0, 11, 12, 9, 5*), Matt Forte (0, 0, 1, 5, 2, 7), Jeremy Langford (9, 6, 3, 3, 7, 3), Zach Miller (5, 6, 7, 1, 6, 6)

 

RB Touches: Matt Forte (0, 0, 16, 25, 11, 14) and Jeremy Langford (27, 16, 13, 14, 14, 12)

 

Red zone Targets: Alshon Jeffery (3, 1, 0, 2, 1, 2), Matt Forte (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Jeremy Langford (0, 1, 4, 0, 2, 1), Zach Miller (1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Matt Forte (0, 0, 5, 2, 2, 1) and Jeremy Langford (5, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Kyle Fuller 8, 5, 2, 5, 5, 2 (1-1, 2-22-1, 0-0, 2-18, 4-66, 2-22) and Tracy Porter 3, 4, 11, 5, 5, 1 (1-6, 1-48, 2-14, 2-82, 4-56, 1-15-1)

 

Analysis: Limited by hamstring/calf ailments, Alshon Jeffery only played 46.2% of snaps in Week 15 against the Vikings. These re-occurring lower extremity issues have robbed Jeffery of a monster season. Matt Forte and Jeremy Langford split snaps (30:29) nearly perfectly and both will be on the low-end RB2 radar in championship week against the Bucs’ stout run defense.

 

Dallas Cowboys

 

Targets: Dez Bryant (12, 9, 8, 7, 6, 9), Jason Witten (5, 3, 6, 9, 9, 5), Terrance Williams (3, 4, 7, 3, 5, 5), Cole Beasley (1, 3, 7, 3, 4, 7), Darren McFadden (4, 3, 6, 1, 2, 3), Robert Turbin (2, 1, 2, 0, 0)

 

RB Touches: Darren McFadden (20, 32, 14, 15, 9, 18) and Robert Turbin (8, 3, 8, 7, 3)

 

Red zone Targets: Dez Bryant (1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3), Jason Witten (0, 0, 1, 0, 2, 0), Cole Beasley (0, 0, 3, 1, 0, 2), Terrance Williams (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Darren McFadden (1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Darren McFadden (0, 1, 2, 4, 1, 2) and Robert Turbin (1, 0, 1, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Brandon Carr 7, 4, 4, 3, 4, 10 (3-43, 1-15, 3-59, 2-30, 3-25, 7-81-1) and Byron Jones 8 (5-43)

 

Analysis: Dez Bryant was targeted on 7 of Kellen Moore’s 25 dropbacks (28%) in Week 15 after Matt Cassel was benched. Moore will start again in Week 16. Heading into Week 15, Dez was averaging 22.3% of team targets in the three prior weeks.

 

Detroit Lions

 

Targets: Calvin Johnson (9, 9, 14, 8, 5, 1), Eric Ebron (8, 2, 3, 2, 5, 5), Golden Tate (4, 11, 8, 10, 10, 6), Ameer Abdullah (1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2), Theo Riddick (3, 6, 5, 6, 11, 2), Joique Bell (3, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3)

 

RB Touches: Ameer Abdullah (6, 13, 17, 13, 9, 11), Joique Bell (16, 7, 9 10, 9, 10), Theo Riddick (6, 11, 7, 6, 10, 4)

 

Red zone Targets: Calvin Johnson (0, 0, 4, 1, 1, 0), Ameer Abdullah (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 1), Golden Tate (1, 2, 3, 1, 3, 2), Theo Riddick (0, 0, 3, 0, 1, 0), Eric Ebron (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Joique Bell (2, 5, 3, 0, 0, 3), Ameer Abdullah (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 2), Theo Riddick (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Nevin Lawson 16, 7, 5, 6, 5, 10 (7-57, 4-40, 5-47, 2-9, 4-33, 9-115-2) and Darius Slay 1, 4, 3, 2, 4, 11 (1-7, 0-0, 1-8, 2-20, 0-0, 2-35, 8-94)

 

Analysis: Golden Tate has now out-targeted Calvin Johnson in three straight games and Johnson has just two catches in his last two. I won’t speculate if Johnson is dealing with an injury or if Father Time has simply caught up to him, but he’s just not the same player we’re accustomed to seeing. Subsequently, Tate has finished as the WR5 and WR13 (PPR) over the past two weeks.

 

Green Bay Packers

 

Targets: Randall Cobb (10, 9, 7, 5, 12, 7), Davante Adams (21, 4, 11, 7, 3, 8), Eddie Lacy (0, 2, 5, 1, 1, 0), James Jones (2, 11, 6, 3, 7, 9), Richard Rodgers (5, 5, 7, 8, 2, 4), James Starks (7, 1, 5, 7, 4, 1)

 

RB Touches: Eddie Lacy (0, 23, 21, 6, 25, 11) and James Starks (21, 9, 11, 14, 15, 10)

 

Red zone Targets: Randall Cobb (0, 4, 1, 1, 0, 1), James Jones, (1, 1, 2, 0, 0, 0), Davante Adams (0, 0, 2, 2, 0, 3), Eddie Lacy (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Richard Rodgers (1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1), James Starks (0, 0, 4, 1, 1, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Eddie Lacy (0, 0, 0, 1, 4, 3) and James Starks (0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Sam Shields 0*, 3, 7, 5, 9, 4 (0-0, 3-36, 6-45, 3-26, 6-56-1, 2-11) – Inactive in Week 15, Casey Hayward 4, 7, 8, 3, 3, 9 (2-7-1, 6-43, 6-63, 2-21, 3-32, 3-42), Quinten Rollins 7, 4, 11 (4-58, 2-19, 6-70)

 

Analysis: There isn’t much to review through here. Randall Cobb has posted just one top-24 (“WR2”) PPR scoring week in his last six games and both Eddie Lacy and James Starks will have a tough time on the ground during championship week. Arizona has permitted just 53-193-1 (3.64 YPC) to Todd Gurley, Adrian Peterson, and Eagles running backs over their past three contests.

 

Minnesota Vikings

 

Targets: Stefon Diggs (2, 9, 4, 6, 7, 4), Mike Wallace (2, 2, 0, 3, 5, 3), Kyle Rudolph (4, 9, 10, 4, 6, 2), Jarius Wright (2, 5, 2, 2, 6, 3), Adrian Peterson (3, 2, 4, 4, 1, 0)

 

RB Touches: Adrian Peterson (29, 15, 31, 12, 24, 18)

 

Red zone Targets: Kyle Rudolph (2, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Adrian Peterson (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Jarius Wright (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Mike Wallace (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Stefon Diggs (0, 0, 1, 0, 2, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Adrian Peterson (3, 1, 2, 0, 2, 2)

 

CBs Thrown At: Xavier Rhodes 6, 3, 4, 3, 8, 8 (5-44-1, 3-50, 3-25, 2-14, 4-43, 4-40), Terence Newman 11, 7, 5, 7, 1, 6 (4-26, 3-54-1, 2-29, 6-61-1, 0-0, 6-44-1), Captain Munnerlyn 6, 8, 8, 2, 6, 4  (4-57, 4-40-1, 6-54-1, 2-16, 6-83-1, 3-19)

 

Analysis: On Wednesday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Adrian Peterson (ankle) “should be good to go” against the Giants in Week 16. The Giants run defense has tightened a bit over the last three weeks, but they still have allowed 57-243-2 (4.26 YPC) to Chris Ivory/Bilal Powell, Lamar Miller, and Panthers backs. Peterson should be fired back up as a top-3 running back play during championship week.

 

New Orleans Saints

 

Targets: Brandin Cooks (10, 8, 8, 10, 5, 13), Marques Colston (3, 5, 4, 3, 8, 4), C.J. Spiller (2, 2, 3, 2, 3, 5), Ben Watson (5, 5, 9, 8, 11, 12), Willie Snead (10, 1, 7, 0, 8, 11), Tim Hightower (1, 4)

 

RB Touches: Tim Hightower (29, 16) and C.J. Spiller (3, 10, 3, 1, 6, 4)

 

Red zone Targets: Brandin Cooks (0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 2), Willie Snead (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Marques Colston (0, 0, 2, 0, 3, 1), Ben Watson (0, 0, 3, 1, 1, 6)

 

Red zone Carries: Tim Hightower (6, 4) and C.J. Spiller (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Brandon Browner 10, 1, 7, 10, 4, 0 (7-85, 1-8-1, 4-49, 5-60-2, 2-25, 0-0) and Delvin Breaux 8, 2, 2, 4*, 1, 5 (3-32-1, 1-78-1, 1-1, 1-0, 0-0, 5-31-2)

 

Analysis: Drew Brees is “day-to-day” with a torn plantar fascia (foot). He can reportedly play in Week 16 against the Jags’ if he can’t suffer any further injury. Pending more Brees news, I should note that no tight end has more targets than Ben Watson (40) since Week 12. He also leads the Saints in percentage of team targets during that span (22.5).

 

New York Giants

 

Targets: Odell Beckham (17, 12, 18, 11, 10, 9), Shane Vereen (4, 4, 5, 3, 2, 10), Rueben Randle (5, 4, 6, 6, 6, 5), Rashad Jennings (1, 3, 3, 2, 2, 3), Andre Williams (1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0) Dwayne Harris (3, 9, 5, 2, 5, 3), Will Tye (6, 7, 8, 4, 5, 8)

 

RB Touches: Rashad Jennings (12, 13, 13, 8, 24, 17), Shane Vereen (10, 10, 6, 6, 2, 12), Andre Williams (5, 8, 2, 2, 3, 6)

 

Red zone Targets: Odell Beckham (1, 1, 0, 0, 3, 2), Rueben Randle (1, 0, 2, 2, 1, 0), Shane Vereen (1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 3), Dwayne Harris (0, 3, 0, 0, 1, 0), Rashad Jennings (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Will Tye (1, 0, 0, 0, 2, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: Rashad Jennings (0, 0, 0, 1, 3, 1), Andre Williams  (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Shane Vereen (3, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Prince Amukamara 9, 5, 3, 6, 5, 9 (3-16-1, 2-25, 6-80-1, 4-82-1, 4-43) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie 11, 7, 4, 6, 9, 11 (4-26, 5-62, 3-38, 4-49, 5-35, 5-79-1)

 

Analysis: At press time, Odell Beckham is suspended in Week 16 for his conduct on the field against Josh Norman in Week 15. If Beckham misses against the Vikings, I won’t trust Rueben Randle to pick up the slack. He’s repeatedly failed to live up expectations in situations he should theoretically succeed in. Will Tye’s last four PPR finishes are as follows: TE12, TE11, TE10, and TE7. He’s been a solid floor play over the past month and could unlock a ceiling if Beckham does miss Week 16.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

 

Targets: Jordan Matthews (5, 4, 5, 6, 5, 11), Zach Ertz (10, 4*, 0, 4, 7, 13), Darren Sproles (6, 7, 6, 6, 3, 4), DeMarco Murray (8, 5, 0, 0, 2, 0), Nelson Agholor (4, 4, 2, 2, 6, 1), Ryan Mathews (3, 0, 0, 0, 2, 2)

 

RB Touches: DeMarco Murray (28, 17, 14, 8, 13, 2), Darren Sproles (8, 9, 6, 19, 9, 9), Ryan Mathews (10, 0, 0, 0, 15, 12)

 

Red zone Targets: Jordan Matthews (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), DeMarco Murray (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Zach Ertz (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 2), Nelson Agholor (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Darren Sproles (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Ryan Mathews (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: DeMarco Murray (5, 0, 2, 1, 0, 0), Ryan Mathews (3, 0, 0, 0, 2, 1), Darren Sproles (0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3)

 

CBs Thrown At: Byron Maxwell 6, 3, 9, 5, 8, 6 (3-68, 3-51, 4-46, 3-37, 3-90-1, 5-92) and Eric Rowe 10, 12, 5, 4* (7-86-2, 4-42, 2-26, 2-18)

 

Analysis: Outside of mentioning that Zach Ertz is fifth among all tight ends in percentage of team targets (23.5) over the past month, I really don’t have anything to say here. I’m not chasing the ghost of Jordan Matthews’ lost season in championship week.

 

San Francisco 49ers

 

Targets: Anquan Boldin (0, 7, 11, 13, 3, 10), Torrey Smith (4, 3, 3, 3, 2, 5), Vance McDonald (5, 4, 7, 3, 0, 4), Blake Bell (3, 3, 3, 8), Shaun Draughn (5, 11, 5, 6, 3, 2)

 

RB Touches: Shaun Draughn (20, 20, 20, 18, 13, 10*)

 

Red zone Targets: Anquan Boldin (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1), Torrey Smith (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Shaun Draughn (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0), Vance McDonald (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), Blake Bell (0, 0, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Shaun Draughn (3, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Tramaine Brock 5, 2, 7, 6, 2, 4 (2-14, 2-16, 5-74, 2-40, 1-0, 3-58) and Jimmie Ward 9, 7, 3, 4, 0, 3 (6-36, 7-91-1, 2-41, 2-8, 0-0, 1-2)

 

Analysis: The ‘Niners were 76.1% pass heavy in Week 15 against the Bengals, allowing Anquan Boldin to have his third double-digit target game in the last four weeks. Shaun Draughn (knee) left early in Week 15, but his knee ailment “isn’t serious.” If he’s active, he’ll be a low-end floor “RB2” (top-24) play against Detroit. The Lions have held enemy backs to 3.66 yards per attempt over their past five affairs.

 

Seattle Seahawks

 

Targets: Doug Baldwin (10, 6, 8, 7, 9, 6), Tyler Lockett (1, 5, 3, 7, 7, 7), Fred Jackson (0, 2, 2, 2, 4, 3), Jermaine Kearse (2, 5, 5, 1, 8, 8), Bryce Brown (1), Christine Michael (0)

 

RB Touches: Christine Michael (16), Bryce Brown (9), Fred Jackson (0, 6, 3, 3, 8, 2)

 

Red zone Targets: Doug Baldwin (0, 2, 1, 2, 4, 4), Fred Jackson (0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 0), Jermaine Kearse (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Tyler Lockett (0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Christine Michael (2), Bryce Brown (3), Fred Jackson (0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Russell Wilson (0, 1, 0, 2, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Richard Sherman 8, 4, 10, 3, 2, 2 (1-15, 5-67-1, 2-19, 3-24, 1-6, 1-31, 0-0) and Jeremy Lane 7, 6 (4-58, 4-25-1)

 

Analysis: Here was the Seahawks running back snap split in Week 15 against the Browns: Christine Michael (25), Bryce Brown (23), and Fred Jackson (13). I will note that 11 of Michael’s 16 carries came in the second half while the ‘Hawks were nursing a lead – but, Pete Carroll reiterated on Monday that Seattle will remain a running back by committee with Marshawn Lynch (core muscle injury) is on the shelf. Michael seemed to emerge from the committee and it’s worth noting Seattle’s Week 16 opponent (Rams) have allowed the fourth most rushing yards to opposing backs over the past five weeks (612). I’m not saying you can trust Michael in the fantasy championship -- but in a year chock full of running back apocalypses – Michael may literally be one of the only decent options fantasy owners have this week.

 

St. Louis Rams

 

Targets: Todd Gurley (3, 0, 2, 0, 2, 2), Tavon Austin (4, 5, 6, 3, 5, 3), Jared Cook (3, 6, 6, 9, 1, 6), Kenny Britt (3, 5, 11, 6, 5, 2), Brian Quick (7, 0, 6, 6, 0, 0), Wes Welker (6, 4, 3, 3, 2, 0)

 

RB Touches: Todd Gurley (15, 25, 10, 9, 17, 23) and Tavon Austin (3, 1, 4, 2, 4, 4)

Red zone Carries: Todd Gurley (4, 3, 1, 1, 3, 6) and Tavon Austin (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Janoris Jenkins 6, 3, 9, 6, 10, 5 (4-75, 2-11, 5-41, 4-29-1, 7-102-1, 3-60), Trumaine Johnson 5, 10 (2-18, 5-73), Lamarcus Joyner 2, 5, 0, 8, 7,5 (2-10, 4-51, 0-0, 5-22, 4-28, 3-37)

 

Analysis: The only thing that needs to be left in the Rams section this week is this: 62% of Todd Gurley’s total attempts (130-of-210), 58.4% of his rushing yardage and seven of his 9 rushing touchdowns have come when the Rams are either tied or playing with a lead. The Rams face the Seahawks on the road in Week 16.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

 

Targets: Mike Evans (13, 7, 10, 7, 4, 17), Charles Sims (5, 4, 3, 3, 8, 3), Doug Martin (4, 1, 3, 2, 3, 2), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (6, 6, 6)

 

RB Touches: Doug Martin (22, 27, 15, 26, 12, 19) and Charles Sims (7, 13, 7, 9, 11, 10)

 

Red zone Targets: Mike Evans (1, 2, 1, 1, 0, 0), Charles Sims (1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), Doug Martin (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Austin Seferian-Jenkins (1, 0, 4)

 

Red zone Carries: Doug Martin (1, 6, 1, 6, 1, 1) and Charles Sims (1, 0, 1, 2, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Sterling Moore 9, 8, 6, 11, 7, 2 (5-50, 6-53-1, 5-101-1, 4-28, 4-46, 2-24), Jude Adjei-Barimah 7, 5, 11, 3, 7, 2 (2-13, 8-71-1, 3-34, 7-109-1, 2-77-2), Johnthan Banks 1 (1-15)

 

Analysis: Mike Evans is the only receiver or tight end to have 100-plus targets on the season but fewer than four receiving touchdowns (Evans has 3). The average touchdowns scored among the 29 WRs or TEs to have 100-plus targets this year is 7.24. Positive regression is due to hit Evans in the near future, especially with Vincent Jackson (knee) likely done for the year.
