Targets and Touches

Week 12 AFC Targets/Touches

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

From here on out, this column will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. The 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.

 

Just as a reminder, the NFC targets and touches report comes out every Wednesday.

 

Note: Both Week 13 Targets and Touches Reports will come out on Friday, December 4th next week.

 

Baltimore Ravens

 

Targets: Kamar Aiken (9, 8, 3, 6, 14, 8), Buck Allen (1, 3, 1, 4, 2, 6), Crockett Gillmore (0, 6, 7, 4, 4, 8), Maxx Williams (1, 4, 0, 0, 4, 4), Chris Givens (2, 2, 2, 4, 7, 7)

 

RB Touches: Buck Allen (8, 5, 4, 7, 6, 27)

 

Red zone Targets: Crockett Gillmore (0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 2), Kamar Aiken (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2), Javorius Allen (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Chris Givens (0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Maxx Williams (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Buck Allen (4, 1, 0, 1, 1, 2)

 

CBs Thrown At (via PFF): Jimmy Smith 11, 5, 5, 4, 7, 4 (Allowed: 8-92, 2-53, 4-33-2, 2-15, 4-27-1, 3-29) and Lardarius Webb 10, 3, 6, 8, 10, 3 (10-72-1, 1-5, 4-81, 8-58-1, 5-39-1, 0-0)

 

Analysis: Now down Joe Flacco (ACL) and Justin Forsett (broken arm) for the season after losing Steve Smith (Achilles’) and Breshad Perriman (knee), the Ravens offense is a complete injury-plagued mess. Interception-prone Matt Schaub will likely finish the year as the Ravens’ starting quarterback. Buck Allen is one of the top running back waiver adds for Week 12, but expectations need to be checked as the Ravens’ season has completely fallen apart.

 

Buffalo Bills

 

Targets: Sammy Watkins (0, 5*, 0, 8, 7, 6), Charles Clay (3, 13, 5, 1, 6, 3), LeSean McCoy (0, 4, 4, 2, 5, 10), Robert Woods (2, 6, 13, 1, 7, 9), Karlos Williams (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)

 

RB Touches: LeSean McCoy (0, 18, 20, 18*, 24, 26) and Karlos Williams (0, 0, 0, 9, 8, 6)

 

Red zone Targets: Charles Clay (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), LeSean McCoy (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Robert Woods (0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 0), Sammy Watkins (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: LeSean McCoy (0, 4, 1, 0, 0, 1), Karlos Williams (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Tyrod Taylor (0, 0, 0, 3, 1, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Stephon Gilmore 6, 8, 4, 6, 9,4 (2-20, 5-78-1, 3-50-1, 3-42, 4-42, 3-32-1), Ronald Darby 5, 7, 8, 6, 5, 5 (3-20, 6-53, 2-40, 5-53, 1-(-2), 3-41), Nickell Robey 4, 2, 1, 4, 6, 0 (3-28, 1-24, 1-5, 3-42, 4-84-2, 0-0)

 

Analysis: In his five games with at least 60% of the snaps (Week 1-2 plus 9-11), Sammy Watkins has seen 25% of Bills’ targets (6.4 per-game). Offensive coordinator Greg Roman has zero interest in scheming the ball to Watkins or drawing up plays to get him the ball in the red zone. Watkins has not seen a target inside of the 20-yard line all year.

Cincinnati Bengals

 

Targets: A.J. Green (8, 7, 17, 6, 7, 12), Tyler Eifert (12, 4, 8, 6, 7, 3), Jeremy Hill  (2, 1, 1, 1, 3, 0), Giovani Bernard (8, 2, 3, 1, 8, 10), Marvin Jones (8, 12, 5, 6, 9, 9), Mohamed Sanu (5, 4, 3, 3, 2, 3)

 

RB Touches: Jeremy Hill (9, 17, 16, 16, 10, 13) and Gio Bernard (20, 9, 3, 14, 13, 14)

 

Red zone Targets: A.J. Green  (0, 0, 4, 0, 0, 1), Tyler Eifert (2, 1, 0, 4, 1, 2), Mohamed Sanu (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1), Gio Bernard (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2), Marvin Jones (1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Jeremy Hill (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Jeremy Hill (2, 0, 1, 2, 0, 2), Gio Bernard (2, 3, 4, 1, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Dre Kirkpatrick 3, 11, 8, 6, 6, 3 (1-7, 7-82, 4-48, 3-19, 1-14, 3-62) and Adam Jones 6, 1, 1, 5, 6, 4 (0-0, 1-22, 3-25, 4-28-1, 2-41, 5-44) – Inactive in Week 11

 

Analysis: Jeremy Hill leads the league in rushing touchdowns from inside of the 5-yard line this year (6). No other running back or quarterback has more than five. If you’re still trotting Hill out there in season-long leagues, his touchdown prowess from in close is the only thing you can hope for at this point. Hill has averaged less than 4 yards per carry in 8-of-10 games this season.

 

Cleveland Browns – On Bye in Week 11

 

Targets: Travis Benjamin (12, 13, 8, 5, 6, 11), Gary Barnidge (10, 9, 7, 11, 7, 8), Duke Johnson (8, 4, 7, 2, 2, 4), Brian Hartline (3, 3, 3, 10, 0, 9), Isaiah Crowell (2, 2, 0, 2, 4, 2)

 

RB Touches: Isaiah Crowell (15, 13, 8, 11, 13, 7) and Duke Johnson (15, 12, 13, 3, 5, 8)

 

Red zone Targets: Gary Barnidge (1, 2, 0, 2, 1, 3), Travis Benjamin (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 3), Duke Johnson (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Brian Hartline (1, 1, 1, 3, 0, 4)

 

Red zone Carries: Isaiah Crowell (0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2) and Duke Johnson (1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Joe Haden 8, 6, 0, 5*, 5*, 0 – Inactive in Week 9-10 (3-34-1, 6-87, 0-0, 4-44, 5-123-2, 0-0) and Tramon Williams 5, 13, 2, 13, 7, 5 (3-59, 5-103-1, 1-20, 7-132, 5-69-1, 2-25)

Denver Broncos

 

Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (12, 12, 5, 11, 4, 0), Demaryius Thomas (8, 17, 11, 7, 10, 8), Ronnie Hillman (2, 5, 2, 0, 4, 1), C.J. Anderson (2, 4, 1, 2, 1, 2), Owen Daniels (5, 3, 3, 9, 5, 5), Vernon Davis (1, 4, 6)

 

RB Touches: Ronnie Hillman (8, 23, 20, 7, 11, 22) and C.J. Anderson (13, 17, 15, 8, 3, 14)

 

Red zone Targets: Demaryius Thomas (2, 0, 1, 2, 1, 1) Emmanuel Sanders (1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Owen Daniels (2, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Ronnie Hillman (2, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Vernon Davis (0, 1, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Ronnie Hillman (0, 1, 4, 1, 2, 4) and C.J. Anderson (3, 3, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Chris Harris Jr. 7, 4, 5, 5, 5, 2 (4-40, 2-11, 4-23, 5-91, 2-2, 2-14), Aqib Talib 7, 3, 7, 1, 4, 3 (6-70-1, 1-19, 3-44, 1-3, 0-0, 3-79), Bradley Roby 4, 4, 3, 5, 5, 3 (3-26, 2-25, 1-7, 4-23, 4-60, 1-2)

 

Analysis: Here’s the Broncos’ backfield split since their Week 7 bye: Ronnie Hillman (132 snaps, 58 rush attempts, 7 targets, 11 red zone carries) and C.J. Anderson (116 snaps, 35 rush attempts, 6 targets, 1 red zone carry). I do want to note here that Brock Osweiler has already been named the starter for Week 12 and his presence alone should only help the Broncos' offense going forward, especially once Emmanuel Sanders (ankle sprain) returns.

 

Houston Texans

 

Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (14, 15, 12, 11, 11, 12), Nate Washington (0, 0, 16, 6*, 5, 6), Cecil Shorts (0, 6, 0, 0, 7, 5), Alfred Blue (0, 1, 0, 5, 1, 3), Jonathan Grimes (4, 0, 1, 3, 1, 3), Chris Polk (3, 2, 3, 2, 0, 0)

 

RB Touches: Alfred Blue (7, 0, 3, 19, 13, 24), Chris Polk (3, 9, 7, 9, 4, 0), Jonathan Grimes (12, 0, 0, 2, 7, 9)

 

Red zone Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (0, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1), Cecil Shorts (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Nate Washington (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 2), Jonathan Grimes (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Alfred Blue (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 2), Chris Polk (2, 0, 1, 2, 1, 0, 0), Jonathan Grimes (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Johnathan Joseph 8, 9, 3, 8, 9, 4 (5-55-1, 5-54, 3-21, 5-42, 6-57, 2-13) and Kevin Johnson 7, 9, 3, 3, 5, 8 (3-33, 5-72, 3-73-2, 1-12, 4-37, 4-59-1)

 

Analysis: Every single week I am forced to find a new DeAndre Hopkins stat for the Texans’ section and that is fine by me because Hopkins doesn’t care who his quarterback is. He has now gone over 90 yards receiving in all but three games this year and has at least five receptions in each. Hopkins routinely whipped Darrelle Revis in Week 11, shredding him for 4-98-1 on six targets in Revis’ coverage. At just 23-years-old, there is a legitimate case to be made for Hopkins as the No. 1 or No. 2 dynasty asset behind Odell Beckham Jr.

 

Indianapolis Colts

 

Targets: T.Y. Hilton (9, 9, 15, 7, 6, 4), Donte Moncrief (3, 11, 6, 7, 4, 8), Frank Gore (0, 3, 8, 3, 3, 5), Andre Johnson (7, 6, 4, 8, 3, 2), Dwayne Allen (1, 3, 1, 3, 3, 1), Coby Fleener (3, 6, 5, 11, 6, 5), Ahmad Bradshaw (1, 2, 1, 2, 4)

 

RB Touches: Frank Gore (22, 15, 14, 25, 29, 19) and Ahmad Bradshaw (5, 2, 8, 7, 13)

 

Red zone Targets: T.Y. Hilton (2, 2, 3, 0, 0, 0), Andre Johnson (3, 0, 0, 2, 0, 0), Donte Moncrief (0, 1, 2, 0, 0, 3), Dwayne Allen (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Frank Gore (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Coby Fleener (1, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0), Ahmad Bradshaw (0, 0, 0, 0, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: Frank Gore (4, 2, 0, 0, 5, 0) and Ahmad Bradshaw (1, 0, 0, 3, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Vontae Davis 5, 4, 5, 10, 5, 11 (3-28-1, 1-10, 3-27, 3-46-1, 4-12-1, 6-108), Greg Toler 9, 9, 8, 10, 8 (6-102, 4-74, 5-103, 5-115-1, 6-49), Darius Butler 12, 1, 3, 4, 4, 6 (1-6, 1-19, 2-23, 3-14-1, 3-34, 5-43-1)

 

Analysis: Via the RotoViz Game Splits App, here are Donte Moncrief’s per-game averages with Matt Hasselbeck starting: 4 receptions, 39.7 yards, 0 touchdowns on 6.7 targets per-game. T.Y. Hilton’s per-game averages with Hasselbeck are only a tick better; he’s averaging: 4.7 receptions, 58.7 yards, 0 touchdowns on 8.7 targets per-game.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Targets: Allen Robinson (9, 12, 9, 11, 11, 7), Allen Hurns (6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 4), T.J. Yeldon (6, 0, 3, 3, 6, 4), Julius Thomas (2, 13, 5, 8, 5, 8)

 

RB Touches: T.J. Yeldon (0, 21, 17, 6, 23, 17)

 

Red zone Targets: Allen Robinson (2, 0, 1, 0, 4, 0), Allen Hurns (1, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), T.J. Yeldon (2, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Julius Thomas (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: T.J. Yeldon (1, 0, 3, 1, 2, 2)

 

CBs Thrown At: Aaron Colvin 0, 5, 8, 8, 3, 9 (0-0, 4-41, 4-35, 6-64, 3-30-1, 5-51) and Davon House 6*, 15, 4, 7, 12, 2 (2-24, 10-138-2, 2-24, 4-75-1, 6-89-1, 1-9)

 

Analysis: T.J. Yeldon (68.4%) is currently third behind Adrian Peterson (71.2%) and Latavius Murray (69.3%) for the highest percentage of team carries in the league. The only issue is Yeldon only has 50% of the Jags’ carries inside of the 20-yard line, 35.3% inside of the 10, and just 20% inside of the 5.

 

Still, positive regression could be coming for Yeldon – he’s the only running back (of 18 qualifying) to have 50-plus percent of his teams’ red zone carries and not have a red zone rushing touchdown. The other 18 backs with 50-plus percent of red zone carries have at least two rushing touchdowns inside of the 20-yard line.

 

Kansas City Chiefs

 

Targets: Jeremy Maclin (12, 4*, 0, 5, 6, 6), Travis Kelce (6, 7, 6, 8, 9, 7), Charcandrick West (2, 2, 5, 6, 5, 2*), Albert Wilson (0, 6, 6, 4, 4, 4), Spencer Ware (0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

RB Touches: Charcandrick West (8, 10, 24, 23, 29, 13) and Spencer Ware (0, 2, 2, 2, 12)

 

Red zone Targets: Jeremy Maclin (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 2), Travis Kelce (1, 1, 0, 2, 0, 1), Charcandrick West (0, 0, 1, 3, 0, 0), Albert Wilson (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Charcandrick West (0, 2, 7, 3, 2, 5) and Spencer Ware (0, 0, 0, 0, 5)

 

CBs Thrown At: Marcus Peters 12, 10, 9, 5, 7, 7 (9-86-1, 4-46, 6-125, 3-40-1, 1-17, 4-40) and Sean Smith 7, 4, 8, 9, 8, 1 (4-68, 4-76, 4-49-1, 5-76, 2-19, 1-6)

 

Analysis: When Charcandrick West went down with a hamstring injury, Spencer Ware came in relief and went for 11-96-2 rushing (8.7 yards per carry) against a Chargers’ run defense that is completely in shambles. Chiefs coach Andy Reid called West “day-to-day” with the hamstring strain after Week 11. Ware makes for an attractive waiver wire add this week just given the opportunity he may have and the fact that we aren’t sure how severe West’s injury is at this point.

 

Miami Dolphins

 

Targets: Jarvis Landry (4, 5, 8, 13, 12, 7), Lamar Miller (3, 3, 5, 7, 8, 3), Jordan Cameron (8, 2, 5, 1, 3, 5), Rishard Matthews (6, 3, 12, 4, 6, 3), Kenny Stills (2, 0, 7, 5, 4, 2), Jay Ajayi (0, 0, 2)

 

RB Touches: Lamar Miller (21, 17, 14, 17, 22, 9) and Jay Ajayi (5, 6, 6)

 

Red zone Targets: Lamar Miller (0, 0, 0, 1, 2, 0), Jarvis Landry (1, 1, 0, 0, 2, 0), Jordan Cameron (2, 0, 0, 1, 1, 2), Rishard Matthews (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Kenny Stills (0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Lamar Miller (0, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1) and Jay Ajayi (1, 1) – No Red zone Carries in Week 11

 

CBs Thrown At: Brent Grimes 3*, 10, 9, 6, 5, 5 (5-73, 4-44, 4-52-1, 5-143-1, 3-32) and Jamar Taylor 5, 9, 8, 1, 2, 5 (3-43, 6-103-1, 3-36, 0-0, 1-9, 5-98-1)

 

Analysis: With Tony Romo and their clocking-grinding offense back in place, Miami ran just 41 plays at home against Dallas in Week 11. Game-script and pace simply were not on Lamar Miller’s side as he finished the game with just nine touches. Miller isn’t completely phased out of the ‘Fins attack when they are trailing, however. 73.1% (30-of-41) of Lamar Miller’s targets have come when Miami is playing from behind. Miller gets the Jets on the road in Week 12, but their schedule lightens up considerably after this coming week as Miami plays four of their next five games at home (against Ravens, Giants, Colts, and Patriots) including a Week 15 matchup on the road against San Diego.

 

New England Patriots

 

Targets: Rob Gronkowski (5, 16, 9, 5, 7, 7), Danny Amendola (9, 9, 1, 5, 11, 12), Brandon LaFell (8, 7, 9, 6, 8), Scott Chandler (3, 1, 2, 3, 3, 2), LeGarrette Blount (1, 0, 1, 0, 2, 2), James White (5, 0, 1, 3)

 

RB Touches: LeGarrette Blount (17, 3, 18, 29, 21, 17) and James White (5, 3, 2, 4)

 

Red zone Targets: Rob Gronkowski (0, 7, 0, 1, 1, 1), Scott Chandler (0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0), Danny Amendola (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), LeGarrette Blount (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Brandon LaFell (0, 1, 2, 1, 1), James White (0, 0, 0, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: LeGarrette Blount (0, 0, 1, 7, 8, 2) and James White (0, 0, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Malcolm Butler 13, 9, 8, 5, 10, 9 (7-83-1, 5-82, 6-61, 3-15, 3-92-1, 6-92) and Logan Ryan 10, 6, 10, 9, 4, 5 (6-73, 4-23, 5-54, 5-88, 3-39, 1-4)

 

Analysis: Since Julian Edelman left in the early 2nd quarter of Week 10, Danny Amendola has 29.2% (19 targets total) of Tom Brady’s passing targets. Rob Gronkowski has 21.5% of targets (14 total) and Brandon LaFell has 20% (13 total).


New York Jets

 

Targets: Brandon Marshall (9, 7, 18, 8, 10, 10), Eric Decker (7, 12, 7, 9, 11, 11), Bilal Powell (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 7), Chris Ivory (3, 2, 5, 3, 3, 1)

 

RB Touches: Chris Ivory (23, 17, 18, 26, 21, 9) and Bilal Powell (5, 0, 0, 0, 0, 9)

 

Red zone Targets: Brandon Marshall (0, 1, 2, 2, 3, 0), Eric Decker (1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 1), Chris Ivory (0, 2, 1, 1, 0, 0), Bilal Powell (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Chris Ivory (4, 3, 1, 5, 4, 0) and Bilal Powell (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

CBs Thrown At: Darrelle Revis 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 9 (2-8-1, 3-47, 4-34, 2-50, 3-14, 5-114-1), Buster Skrine 5, 3, 2, 8, 1, 0 (3-28, 3-31, 2-11-1, 7-98-1, 1-0, 0-0), Antonio Cromartie 7, 6, 6, 9, 5, 6 (5-64-1, 2-26, 3-32, 7-140-2, 3-77-1, 2-44)

 

Analysis: Here are Chris Ivory’s home/road splits this year – road (5 games): 16.6 carries, 63.4 rushing yards, and 0.2 rushing touchdowns per-game; home (4 games): 20.3 carries, 90.5 rushing yards, and 0.8 rushing touchdowns per-game. The only time Chris Ivory has cleared 60-plus yards rushing on the “road” was Week 4 against the Dolphins, but that game was across the pond in London. Ivory’s rushing yardage totals when the Jets actually play on the road this year are as follows: 14-47 (Week 2 at IND), 17-41 (Week 7 at NE), 15-17 (Week 8 at OAK), and 8-36 (Week 11 at HOU).

 

Oakland Raiders

 

Targets: Amari Cooper (4, 6, 9, 13, 9, 4), Michael Crabtree (9, 8, 12, 12, 5, 11), Latavius Murray (4, 1, 2, 2, 5, 0), Mychal Rivera (3, 3, 0, 3, 7, 3), Clive Walford (1, 2, 3, 5, 4, 3)

 

RB Touches: Latavius Murray (16, 16, 21, 19*, 17, 13)

 

Red zone Targets: Amari Cooper (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 1), Michael Crabtree (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), Mychal Rivera (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Clive Walford (0, 0, 0, 3, 1, 1)

 

Red zone Carries: Latavius Murray (3, 3, 2, 1, 0, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: D.J. Hayden 8, 13, 7, 15, 4, 5 (5-78, 10-75, 5-45-1, 11-136-1, 3-38, 5-72) and David Amerson 9, 5, 13, 14, 0, 6 (6-66, 4-47, 7-76, 9-174, 0-0, 2-24)

Analysis: Chargers’ target share since Keenan Allen (kidney) went down for the season: Stevie Johnson (25%), Antonio Gates (19.4%), Danny Woodhead (16.7%), Dontrelle Inman (13.9%), and Javontee Herndon (12.5%).

 

Here's Philip Rivers' weekly finishes before Keenan Allen's injury: QB7, QB24, QB24, QB1, QB9, QB2, QB4, and QB7. In the two games without Allen, Rivers has finished as the QB19 and QB27. Obviously that is just a two game sample, but with no Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates dealing with knee/hip issues, and virtually no run game to speak of, Rivers' fantasy ceiling may be zapped.

 

Tennessee Titans

RB Touches: Antonio Andrews (10, 10, 19, 20, 11, 17) and Dexter McCluster (8, 11, 7, 10, 7, 4*), David Cobb (4)

 

Red zone Targets: Kendall Wright (4, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0), Delanie Walker (0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 3), Harry Douglas (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Dorial Green-Beckham (2, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2), Dexter McCluster (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0) – No Red zone Plays in Week 10 and 11

 

Red zone Carries: Antonio Andrews (4, 2, 1, 0, 1, 3) and Dexter McCluster (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2) – No Red zone Plays in Week 10 and 11

 

CBs Thrown At: Coty Sensabaugh 2, 8, 9, 4, 4, 7 (1-13, 5-46, 7-101-1, 1-9, 2-27, 5-77) and Perrish Cox 3, 4 (3-100-1, 4-68)

 

Analysis: The Titans haven’t ran a play in the red zone in two weeks and they currently rank 30th in offensive points per drive (1.49) ahead of only San Francisco (1.26) and St. Louis (1.30). It’s amazing that Marcus Mariota even ranks 18th in fantasy points per-game (16.8) in spite of the atrocious state of the Titans’ “coaching staff.”
