Here we are going to take a closer look at the target breakdown for the wide receivers in week 3.  Sure if you get 10+ targets in a game it’s a great thing, but what you do with those targets matters the most to us fantasy owners. Below I have a list of the WR’s who got 8+ targets last week. I gathered each players number of receptions and then divided it by the number of targets he received to get the players catch rate percentage. Then to get a closer look I took the players receiving yards and divided that number by his number of targets to find out who makes the most out of the amount of targets they get.

This week we had 37 wide receivers with 8+ targets in the NFL. The average Yards per Target (YpT) was 8.1.In his first game back from suspension Josh Gordon led the league with 19 targets, catching 10 of them for 146 yards giving him 7.7YpT.  Eric Decker made the most of of his 8 targets catching all 8 of them for 133 yards which equals out to a weekly high of 16.6YpT. Also having strong weeks were Santonio Holmes (15.4YpT) and Antonio Brown (15.1 YpT)

On the other side Greg Little is showing very little ability to do anything after he catches the ball. He was the lowest on the list this week  hauling in just 3 of his 8 targets for 19 yards giving him a 2.4 YpT. On the season he’s currently the only wide receiver who has over 20 targets (30) and under 100 yards receiving.

Below you will find week 3′s list. Hope you enjoy!
