Top 12 Targets Leaders

Player Team Week 13 Targets
1. Robert Woods Rams 19
2. Alshon Jeffery Eagles 16
T3. Christian McCaffrey Panthers 13
T3. Anthony Miller Bears 13
T5. Julian Edelman Patriots 12
T5. D.J. Moore Panthers 12
T5. Allen Robinson Bears 12
T8. Amari Cooper Cowboys 11
T8. Jack Doyle Colts 11
T8. Mike Evans Bucs 11
T8. Leonard Fournette Jaguars 11
T8. T.J. Hockenson Lions 11
T8. Jarvis Landry Browns 11
T8. James White Patriots 11

Robert Woods led the rejuvenation of the Rams’ offense with 13 receptions and 172 yards. While Seattle may be a tougher match up than Arizona, it may become a shoot-out and Woods could be in-store for another big day. Jeffery returned from his injury with a 9 for 137 game and a score as the cherry on top. As the go to guy for Wentz, Jeffery should be a no doubt plug and play receiver for teams. Christian McCaffrey was slowed by the Redskins’ defense on Sunday being held to only 102 yards from scrimmage. McCaffrey faces a tougher test in the Atlanta Falcons which he looks to get back into the end zone, which he hasn’t found in only three games this season.

The Patriots’ offense struggled Sunday night, but the one bright spot was Julian Edelman as he finished with a 6/106/1 stat line. Edelman was hyper targeted as Brady became frustrated with his newer receivers. D.J. Moore continues his year of consistency with 6/75/1 on Sunday. Moore has gotten 8+ targets in all but two games this season. As long as Kyle Allen is playing quarterback, Moore is a WR1.

Top 12 Touches Leaders                           

Player Team Week 13 Touches
1. Derrick Henry Titans 29
2. Chris Carson Seahawks 24
T3. Leonard Fournette Jaguars 23
T3. Joe Mixon Bengals 23
T5. Saquon Barkley Giants 22
T5. Devonta Freeman Falcons 22
T5. Melvin Gordon Chargers 22

T5. James White Patriots 22
T10. Bo Scarbrough Lions 21
T10. Christian McCaffrey Panthers 21
T10. Raheem Mostert 49ers 21

Derrick Henry led the league in touches for week 13 with 29 touches. Henry had 156 yards from scrimmage and his sixth touchdown in four games. Good news for Henry owners is that he faces Oakland in week 14. Monday night showed the end of the Chris Carson show in Seattle, but the closing act was still 109 yards and score. Expect it to be a time share going forward, but Carson is still a start-worthy player.

Fournette’s big game was helped with his career high in receptions with 9 catches and 91 yards from scrimmage. Fournette’s involvement in the passing game has boosted his value in fantasy. After starting the season off to a slow start, Joe Mixon found the end zone for the second time in three games and got 23 carries in the Bengals win. Dalton’s return helps Mixon’s value as he is able to sustain longer drives than Ryan Finley.

Anthony Miller had another monster game for the Bears. Miller is benefiting from Trubisky’s resurgence. Jack Doyle led the Colts in targets in week 13 as the wide receiving corps has been decimated to Doyle and Pascal leading the way. Doyle finished with 73 yards and a score while Pascal had 109 yards on 7 catches. Both are start-able options in week 14 as the only shows in town.

T.J. Hockenson started off his rookie season with a bang, but since has been full of disappointment. Hockenson’s season is now over as the Lions placed him on season-ending IR. Darius Slayton got to step into Golden Tate’s shoes as he deals with a concussion. Slayton only finished with 6 for 44, but with Tate coming back, Slayton’s value goes out the window.

49ers rode the hot hand with Raheem Mostert in Sunday’s game over Tevin Coleman. Mostert only had to beat out Coleman for touches in week 13, but Matt Breida should be back with the team to muddy the waters even more. Rashaad Penny shined with only 19 carries on Monday Night. He finished with 107 yards and two scores and moved himself into a time share with Chris Carson, but both should be start-able options in fantasy.

Barber may have gotten 17 carries, but they seem to be out of spite from Bruce Arians punishing Ronald Jones. Barber also got two scores, which could have been Jones’ as well. Don’t rely on Barber in week 14. With Conner out, Benny Snell got early work while Jaylen Samuels got third down work. Snell finished with 67 scrimmage yards and a score and could have a similar role against the Cardinals as Conner is out for week 14.
