Here we are going to take a closer look at the target breakdown for the tight ends in week 10. 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 TE’s who got 6+ 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 a season low 11 tight ends with 6 or more targets in the NFL. Coby Fleener & Tyler Eifert led the way with 10 targets a piece although neither did much with their opportunities as Fleener had 4 catches for 33 yards and Eifert had 3 catches for 55 yards.
With teammate Kyle Rudolph out because of injury John Carlson looks to be making the most of his time as he was this weeks number 1 scoring fantasy tight end catching all 7 of his targets for 98 yards and 1 TD. Carlson has been target 13 times now in the past two weeks since Rudolph has gone down and may be a guy you have to take a look at if your struggling for tight end production.
If you watched the Sunday Night game between the Saints and Cowboys then you were as puzzled with Jimmy Grahams limited snap count as I was. A week after playing basically a whole game Graham was limited to 33 snaps, even sitting out sometimes when the Saints were in the red zone. He finished the day catching all 5 of his targets for 59 yards, which was good enough to make a him a top 10 tight end play for the week but was still very “un”-Graham like. Going forward even if Graham continues to see his snaps limited you have to start him on a weekly basis.
Below you will find week 10’s list. Hope you enjoy!
