Here we are going to take a closer look at the target breakdown for running backs in week 8. 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.
This week we had 12 running backs in the NFL with 5+ targets. Reggie Bush led the way this week with 9 targets, catching 8 of them for 30 yards.
Knowshon Moreno again showed to be a big asset in the passing game catching all 6 of his targets for 89 yards. Going forward with production like this in the passing game Moreno will continue to be a must start and is looking like the draft day steal of the year.
Below you will find week 8’s list. Hope you enjoy!
