Here we are going to take a closer look at the target breakdown for running backs in week 4.  With the NFL going to a more “air raid” approach dual threat running backs are becoming more popular across the NFL and a more viable option in fantasy football. Below I have a list of the RB’s who got 5+ targets this week . I gathered each players number of receptions and then divided it by the number of targets he received to get a 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.

We had 15 running backs get 5+ targets this week. Once again Jamaal Charles led the way with 11 targets, catching 5 of them for 62 yards. So far this season Jamaal Charles leads all running backs with 35 targets. Darren Sproles had himself a very productive game catching 7 of his 8 targets for 114 yards and that also was enough to give him a RB high of 14.3 YpT. 

Below you will find week 4′s list. Hope you enjoy!
