Targets and Touches

Week 11 NFC Targets/Touches

by Graham Barfield
Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

In case you missed it, the AFC Targets and Touches column can be found here.

 

From here on out, this column will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. Targets and touches will be in descending order of games played.

 

All targets and touches data is compiled from Pro Football Reference.

 

Note: if a player has an asterisk next to a number in their data set that indicates the player was injured during the game. Also, this data will stick to fantasy relevant players meaning that running backs and wide receivers that only see one target or touch per-game will not be included.

Arizona Cardinals

 

Targets: Larry Fitzgerald (9, 7, 10, 5, 11, 15), Michael Floyd (7, 3, 8, 4, 8, 9), John Brown (10, 4, 14, 6, 0, 3), Chris Johnson (3, 0, 1, 0, 1, 2), David Johnson (10, 0, 1, 2, 2, 1), Andre Ellington (0, 0, 2, 4, 1, 4)

 

RB Touches: Chris Johnson (19, 11, 15, 18, 30, 25), David Johnson (7, 3, 4, 5, 3, 0), Andre Ellington (0, 3, 3, 6, 3, 8)

 

Red zone Targets: John Brown (1, 1, 3, 2, 0, 0), Larry Fitzgerald (1, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1), Michael Floyd (0, 0, 3, 1, 1, 1), David Johnson (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Chris Johnson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: Chris Johnson (4, 1, 1, 4, 5, 1), David Johnson (1, 2, 1, 1, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Jerraud Powers 3, 4, 14, 2, 1, 4 (1-14, 3-36-2, 8-119, 2-18, 1-6, 3-82-1), Tyrann Mathieu 5, 10, 5, 8, 8, 7 (4-56-1, 5-33-2, 2-86-1, 4-21, 4-26-1, 3-33), Patrick Peterson 2, 6, 6, 5, 5, 1 (1-(-1), 4-48, 2-26, 3-41, 4-38, 0-0)

 

Analysis: Michael Floyd has eight or more targets in three of his last four games. His PPR wide receiver finishes during that four game span: WR25, WR21, WR16, bye, and WR2. With Floyd’s emergence, it’s probably time to ramp down expectations for John Brown. Both Brown and Floyd run routes on the outside and will cannibalize each other a bit in terms of production in the near- and long-term.

CBs Thrown At: Josh Norman 8, 2, 2, 7, 5, 3 (2-31, 2-(-2), 1-3, 3-29, 2-49, 2-9), Bene Benwikere 5, 3, 8, 7, 12, 3 (4-39, 1-2, 7-62, 6-69-1, 5-51-2, 3-38), Charles Tillman 3, 6, 5, 7, 10, 4 (2-15, 2-17, 2-17, 3-44, 5-99, 3-53)

 

Analysis: Since the Panthers’ open date in Week 5, Jonathan Stewart has handled 61.5% of Carolina’s carries inside of the 20-yard line and has five straight games with at least 20 carries. In Week 1-4, Stewart handled 28.6% of the Panthers’ red zone carries and averaged 14.75 rush attempts per-game.

 

Correction: The Week 10 NFC Targets/Touches column had Jonathan Stewart with six targets in Week 10. That has since been corrected to two.

Analysis: Since Matt Forte (MCL) went down with an injury, Jeremy Langford has played 74% and 68.2% of the Bears’ offensive snaps and has handled 38-of-60 (63.3%) team carries in two games. Matt Forte averaged 83.3% of snaps pre-injury and handled 68.3% of team carries.

RB Touches: Darren McFadden (10, 14, 31, 26, 27, 20)

 

Red zone Targets: Dez Bryant (0, 1, 1), Jason Witten (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0), Cole Beasley (1, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0), Terrance Williams (5, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Darren McFadden (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Darren McFadden (3, 0, 1, 3, 1, 4) – No Red zone Carries in Week 10

 

CBs Thrown At: Brandon Carr 8, 1, 5, 7, 4, 7 (8-57-1, 1-16, 4-73, 4-45, 4-17, 3-43) and Morris Claiborne 11, 4, 2, 4, 5, 4 (7-67, 4-120-1, 0-0, 3-35, 2-36, 2-37)

 

Analysis: Via the RotoViz Game Splits App, Dez Bryant has now played in 11 career games without Tony Romo. In such games, he’s averaged 4.1 receptions, 51.9 yards, and 0.55 touchdowns on 7.8 targets per-game. With Romo at the helm in 68 total games, Dez has averaged 5.2 receptions, 74.4 yards, and 0.75 touchdowns on 8.2 targets per-game. Welcome back, Tony.

 

Detroit Lions

 

Targets: Calvin Johnson (11, 7, 9, 7, 10, 9), Eric Ebron (3*, 0, 0, 5, 5, 8), Golden Tate (4, 18, 9, 6, 7, 4), Ameer Abdullah (5, 2, 4, 0, 2, 1), Theo Riddick (5, 13, 6, 4, 7, 3), Joique Bell (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 3), Lance Moore (3, 3, 8, 6, 3, 6)

 

RB Touches: Ameer Abdullah (15, 7, 17, 8, 1, 6), Joique Bell (0, 0, 0, 5, 7, 16), Theo Riddick (6, 10, 10, 6, 11, 6)

 

Red zone Targets: Calvin Johnson (1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 0), Ameer Abdullah (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Golden Tate (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 1), Theo Riddick (0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 0), Lance Moore (0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), Eric Ebron (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Joique Bell (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Ameer Abdullah (1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 0), Theo Riddick (0, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Nevin Lawson 6, 16 (5-20, 7-57) and Darius Slay 5, 2, 6, 5, 3, 1 (3-26, 2-25, 2-22, 4-51, 1-7, 0-0)

 

Analysis: Here are the Lions’ running back snaps split since “Jim Bob Cooter” took over as Detroit’s offensive coordinator: Theo Riddick (56), Joique Bell (56), and Ameer Abdullah (17). Here’s the total opportunity split: Riddick (8 carries, 9 targets), Bell (21 carries, 4 targets), and Abdullah (6 carries, 3 targets). Outside of Riddick in PPR leagues, you're on your own starting Lions' running backs in fantasy.

 

Green Bay Packers

 

Targets: Randall Cobb (8, 6, 5, 9, 12, 10), Davante Adams (0, 0, 0, 2, 11, 21), Eddie Lacy (3, 1, 2, 2, 1, 0), James Jones (6, 3, 5, 2, 6, 2), Richard Rodgers (6, 8, 5, 4, 9, 5), James Starks (2, 6, 2, 2, 8, 7)

 

RB Touches: Eddie Lacy (19, 14, 6, 13, 5*, 0) and James Starks (11, 8, 11, 7, 16, 21)

 

Red zone Targets: Randall Cobb (3, 0, 0, 0, 3, 0), James Jones, (0, 0, 2, 0, 1, 1), Davante Adams (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Eddie Lacy (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Richard Rodgers (1, 0, 1, 0, 2, 1), James Starks (0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Eddie Lacy (1, 2, 0, 1, 2, 1) and James Starks (1, 1, 0, 3, 0, 2) – No Red zone attempts in Week 10

 

CBs Thrown At: Sam Shields 5, 4, 7, 14, 0*, 3 (4-61, 1-7, 1-10, 9-117, 0-0, 3-36), Casey Hayward 2, 6, 7, 10, 0, 4 (1-1, 2-5, 4-54, 7-135, 0-0, 2-7-1), Damarious Randall 8, 2, 7, 6, 8, 5 (4-70, 2-28, 4-40, 5-72, 4-88-1, 4-53)

 

Analysis: Davante Adams saw 21 targets in Week 10. His 79 receiving yards on those targets was the lowest yardage total in a game where a receiver saw 20-plus targets since 1992.

 

Minnesota Vikings

 

Targets: Stefon Diggs (9, 9, 9, 12, 5, 2), Mike Wallace (10, 9, 5, 4, 6, 2), Kyle Rudolph (4, 5, 2, 2, 2, 4), Jarius Wright (0, 3, 6, 2, 3, 2), Adrian Peterson (6, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3)

 

RB Touches: Adrian Peterson (16, 27, 22, 22, 31, 29)

 

Red zone Targets: Kyle Rudolph (1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 2), Adrian Peterson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Jarius Wright (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1), Mike Wallace (2, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1), Stefon Diggs (2, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Adrian Peterson (0, 5, 3, 0, 3, 3)

 

CBs Thrown At: Xavier Rhodes 5, 9, 5, 9, 2, 6 (4-72, 4-70-1, 4-40-1, 6-45-1, 1-10, 5-44-1), Terence Newman 7, 5, 0, 9, 4, 11 (4-63, 2-11, 0-0, 6-76, 3-79, 4-26), Captain Munnerlyn 5, 4, 6, 4, 7, 6  (4-36, 2-1, 3-55, 4-33, 4-16, 4-57)

 

Analysis: After seeing at least 9 targets in his first four games, Stefon Diggs has just seven targets total in the Vikings’ last two games. Attached to a low-volume passing attack with a quarterback that has attempted 35 or more passes in just two of nine games this year, Diggs was due for some negative regression. Now that we’ve seen his floor in the last two weeks, I do think Diggs is likely going to see more than 3.5 targets per-game for the remainder of the season but the ceiling he attained during that four week stretch may have just been an aberration, not a trend.

 

New Orleans Saints

 

Targets: Brandin Cooks (9, 5, 13, 8, 10, 8), Mark Ingram (3, 3, 2, 5, 5, 4), Marques Colston (5, 0, 3, 9, 3, 5), C.J. Spiller (4, 5, 6, 4, 2, 2), Ben Watson (5, 12, 5, 10, 5, 5), Willie Snead (11, 5, 7, 8, 10, 1)

 

RB Touches: Mark Ingram (14, 23, 16, 20, 26, 7) and C.J. Spiller (6, 7, 10, 6, 3, 10)

 

Red zone Targets: Brandin Cooks (1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1), Mark Ingram (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Willie Snead (2, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Marques Colston (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Ben Watson (2, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Mark Ingram (1, 5, 3, 3, 4, 0) and C.J. Spiller (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Brandon Browner 7, 5, 4, 8, 10, 1 (5-54, 4-47-1, 2-27-1, 6-55, 7-85, 1-8-1) and Delvin Breaux 7, 6, 10, 10, 8, 2 (6-58, 2-20, 4-150-2, 9-138-3, 3-32-1, 1-78-1)

 

Analysis: Brandin Cooks' wide receiver finishes (PPR) this year are as follows -- Week 1-7: WR46, WR47, WR28, WR68, WR8, WR55, WR25 and Week 8-10: WR6, WR19, and WR3. This difference – in large part – is simply due to the fact Cooks has finally started to score touchdowns (he has five touchdowns his last three games). Cooks was basically unusable for a large portion of the Saints’ first seven games and has suddenly surged over the past three weeks despite seeing no increase in volume. Heading into their open date, I think it's clear Cooks is back on the WR2 (top-24) radar but I wouldn't look for this sharp increase in scoring to continue over the long-term without more targets.

 

New York Giants

 

Targets: Odell Beckham (11, 8, 6, 9, 17, 12), Shane Vereen (8, 4, 3, 9, 4, 4), Rueben Randle (6*, 6, 5, 9, 5, 4), Larry Donnell (7, 5, 5, 1*, 0, 0), Rashad Jennings (4, 3, 0, 3, 1, 3), Andre Williams (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1) Dwayne Harris (8, 4, 2, 7, 3, 9), Orleans Darkwa (1, 0*, 0, 0)

 

RB Touches: Rashad Jennings (15, 16, 5, 12, 13, 13), Shane Vereen (13, 5, 5, 10, 10, 6), Andre Williams (3, 5, 4, 5, 8, 2), Orleans Darkwa (8, 4, 6, 5)

 

Red zone Targets: Odell Beckham (4, 1, 0, 3, 1, 1), Larry Donnell (2, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Rueben Randle (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Shane Vereen (1, 0, 0, 2, 1, 1), Dwayne Harris (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 3)

 

Red zone Carries: Rashad Jennings (2, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Andre Williams (0, 2, 0, 0, 2, 1), Shane Vereen (0, 2, 0, 1, 0, 3), Orleans Darkwa (1, 2, 1) – No Red zone Carries in Week 10

 

CBs Thrown At: Prince Amukamara 10, 4, 8, 9, 5 (7-52, 3-49, 4-54, 4-58, 3-16-1) – Inactive in Week 6-10 (Pectoral tear) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie 5, 5, 6, 7, 11, 7 (3-19, 5-62, 2-38, 4-31, 4-26, 5-62)

 

Analysis: Odell Beckham’s wide receiver finishes so far this year (PPR): WR45, WR6, WR16, WR59, WR4, WR17, WR50, WR1, WR16, and WR9. He’s on pace for 101 receptions, 1,381 yards, and 12.8 touchdowns in 16 games after ripping off 91-1305-12 in 12 full games in 2014.

 

Philadelphia Eagles

 

Targets: Jordan Matthews (8, 7, 11, 7, 12, 5), Zach Ertz (3, 7, 7, 8, 6, 10), Darren Sproles (3, 2, 2, 10, 3, 6), DeMarco Murray (2, 8, 4, 4, 7, 8), Nelson Agholor (4, 1*, 0, 0, 0, 4), Ryan Mathews (0, 3, 1, 3, 1, 3)

 

RB Touches: DeMarco Murray (10, 27, 26, 20, 24, 28), Darren Sproles (4, 6, 3, 8, 7, 8), Ryan Mathews (5, 11, 10, 9, 11, 10)

 

Red zone Targets: Jordan Matthews (0, 2, 0, 1, 2, 1), DeMarco Murray (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Zach Ertz (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Nelson Agholor (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Darren Sproles (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Ryan Mathews (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: DeMarco Murray (1, 5, 1, 3, 2, 5), Ryan Mathews (0, 2, 1, 0, 2, 3), Darren Sproles (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Byron Maxwell 6, 0*, 4, 5, 6, 6 (6-75 0-0, 2-39, 4-38. 3-18, 3-68) and Nolan Carroll 9, 9, 11, 8, 7, 5 (5-49, 6-79, 6-113, 5-39, 5-84, 3-28)

 

Analysis: If Jordan Matthews’ owners need just a glimmer of hope after a disappointing season to-date, when targeted by Mark Sanchez in 2014, Matthews averaged 4.2-66.6-0.67 receiving on 6.1 targets per-game versus 4-39-0.29 on 6.9 targets per-game without him. I’m not holding my breath for a late season resurgence from Matthews, but I definitely don’t think Sam Bradford’s (concussion, shoulder) absence is the death knell for Matthews yet.

CBs Thrown At: Richard Sherman 3, 6, 4, 0, 5, 8 (1-9, 2-21, 5-60, 3-51, 0-0, 1-15, 5-67-1) and Cary Williams 8, 7, 7, 1, 1, 6 (4-28, 5-73-1, 5-77, 1-27, 1-3, 3-53-1)

 

Analysis: Don’t put too much weight into Marshawn Lynch’s eight touches in Week 10. Seattle had to go 65.4% pass heavy (averaging just 52% pass on the year) versus Arizona in comeback mode. On that note, from 2013-2015 when Seattle is favored at home by six or more points, Marshawn Lynch averages 1.07 rushing touchdowns per-game (0.5 rush touchdowns out of the home split). Seattle is currently installed as 12.5-point home favorites over San Francisco in Week 11. This is a monster bounce-back spot for Lynch.

 

St. Louis Rams

 

Targets: Todd Gurley (0, 5, 3, 5, 3), Tavon Austin (7, 5, 7, 7, 7, 4), Jared Cook (6, 6, 4, 3, 3, 3), Kenny Britt (1, 4, 2, 2, 0, 3), Brian Quick (0, 3, 1, 1, 3, 7), Wes Welker (6)

 

RB Touches: Todd Gurley (21, 30, 23, 23, 27, 15) and Tavon Austin (2, 3, 1, 3, 8, 3)

 

Red zone Targets: Tavon Austin (2, 3, 0, 0, 0, 1), Jared Cook (2, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Todd Gurley (1, 0, 0, 1, 0), Kenny Britt (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Brian Quick (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Wes Welker (1)

 

Red zone Carries: Todd Gurley (3, 2, 3, 0, 2, 4) and Tavon Austin (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Trumaine Johnson 9, 6, 7, 11, 6, 3 (7-84, 5-71-1, 7-65, 6-56, 2-8, 2-11), Janoris Jenkins 9, 1, 5, 6, 6, 3 (6-62, 0-0, 3-17, 2-11, 4-75, 2-11), Lamarcus Joyner 6, 9, 4, 3, 3, 2 (5-63, 6-97-1, 3-21, 2-15, 1-7, 2-10)

 

Analysis: Sure, veteran free agent Wes Welker saw six targets in Week 10. He also only played 11-of-65 snaps. One thing I do want to mention here: Nick Foles has been benched at least for the near-term in favor of Case Keenum. Foles has essentially been a bottom-5 starter all year, throwing for over 200 yards just twice. Keenum certainly can’t hurt the Rams’ offense at this point.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

 

Targets: Mike Evans (8, 5, 12, 9, 19, 13), Vincent Jackson (15, 3, 2*, 0, 0, 0), Charles Sims (5, 4, 3, 4, 2, 5), Doug Martin (5, 3, 3, 1, 4, 4)

 

RB Touches: Doug Martin (25, 27, 22, 24, 13, 22) and Charles Sims (9, 16, 12, 9, 9, 7)

 

Red zone Targets: Mike Evans (2, 1, 1, 1, 3, 2, 1), Vincent Jackson (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Charles Sims (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Doug Martin (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Doug Martin (2, 5, 3, 4, 4, 1) and Charles Sims (1, 3, 4, 1, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Sterling Moore 7, 9 (4-46, 5-50), Jude Adjei-Barimah 7, 7 (5-38, 5-47), Alterraun Verner 0, 4, 1, 8, 6, 2 (0-0, 4-64, 1-19, 6-49, 3-21, 2-14)

 

Analysis: Vincent Jackson (knee) looks like he’s going to miss his third straight game in Week 11, which means we can dial up Mike Evans’ volume once again. In the five games Jackson has been active, Evans has averaged nine targets per-game versus 13.7 targets per-game without Jackson in the lineup.

Analysis: Here’s a great stat from Rich Hribar’s Week 11 Sheet: since DeSean Jackson returned, Jordan Reed has 16.9 percent of the team targets. Reed had 24.4 percent prior (to Jackson's return).
