Targets and Touches

Week 14 AFC Targets/Touches

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

Targets and Touches will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. The data 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.

Baltimore Ravens

 

Targets: Kamar Aiken (3, 6, 14, 8, 10, 11), Buck Allen (1, 4, 2, 6, 5, 13), Crockett Gillmore (7, 4, 4, 8, 4, 1), Chris Givens (2, 4, 7, 7, 3, 8), Terrance West (0, 1)

 

RB Touches: Buck Allen (4, 7, 6, 27, 16, 29) and Terrance West (7, 9)

 

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

 

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

 

CBs Thrown At (via PFF): Jimmy Smith 5, 4, 7, 4, 2, 2 (Allowed: 4-33-2, 2-15, 4-27-1, 3-29, 2-26-1, 1-11) and Lardarius Webb 6, 8, 10, 3, 8, 3 (4-81, 8-58-1, 5-39-1, 0-0, 7-37, 3-51-1)

 

Analysis: In the two games Justin Forsett (broken arm) has missed, rookie Buck Allen has finished as the RB7 and RB1 in weekly PPR output. Allen’s 13 targets in Week 13 (along with James White and Bilal Powell) set single-game highs for the most targets in a game by a running back this season. Allen will be a back-end “RB1” (top-12) in PPR leagues for the remainder of the season simply because he’s such a massive asset in the passing game.

 

Buffalo Bills

 

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

 

RB Touches: LeSean McCoy (20, 18*, 24, 26, 22, 21) and Karlos Williams (0, 9, 8, 6, 2, 0)

 

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

 

Red zone Carries: LeSean McCoy (1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 7), Karlos Williams (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0), Tyrod Taylor (0, 3, 1, 0, 0, 4)

 

CBs Thrown At: Stephon Gilmore 4, 6, 9, 4, 8, 5 (3-50-1, 3-42, 4-42, 3-32-1, 5-80, 4-22-1), Ronald Darby 8, 6, 5, 5, 7, 10 (2-40, 5-53, 1-(-2), 3-41, 5-83-2, 7-99-2), Nickell Robey 1, 4, 6, 0, 3, 10 (1-5, 3-42, 4-84-2, 0-0, 2-0, 6-83)

 

Analysis: Here are Sammy Watkins' receiving stat-lines in the seven games he's played 60-plus percent of the Bills’ snaps: 0-0, 6-60-1, 8-168-1, 3-14, 3-39, 6-158-2, and 3-109-1. The overwhelming variance here can be explained by his up-and-down percent of team target shares in those seven games this year, which are in parentheses (15.8%, 26.7%, 66.7%, 26.9%, 16.7%, 26.3%, and 14.3%).

 

Cincinnati Bengals

 

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

 

RB Touches: Jeremy Hill (16, 16, 10, 13, 17, 22) and Gio Bernard (3, 14, 13, 14, 12, 6)

 

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

 

Red zone Carries: Jeremy Hill (1, 2, 0, 2, 1, 7), Gio Bernard (4, 1, 0, 0, 2, 1)

 

CBs Thrown At: Dre Kirkpatrick 8, 6, 6, 3, 11, 7 (4-48, 3-19, 1-14, 3-62, 6-34, 4-33) and Adam Jones 1, 5, 6, 4, 10, 3 (3-25, 4-28-1, 2-41, 5-44, 6-61, 3-19)

 

Analysis: Without Tyler Eifert (neck), the Bengals needed just 56 plays to score four offensive touchdowns and 37 total points against a burnable Browns’ defense. Over the past month (Week 10-13), Jeremy Hill has rushed for 58-244-3 (4.2 yards per carry) and three touchdowns, while adding 2.9 yards after contact per attempt (11th most out of 56 qualified running backs). Gio Bernard’s rushing line during that same time frame is sub-par: 29-96-0 (3.3 YPC) and 2.2 yards after contact per attempt (30th).

 

Cleveland Browns

 

Targets: Travis Benjamin (8, 5, 6, 11, 13, 2*), Gary Barnidge (7, 11, 7, 8, 11, 8), Duke Johnson (7, 2, 2, 4, 6, 4), Brian Hartline (3, 10, 0, 9, 12, 11), Isaiah Crowell (0, 2, 4, 2, 0, 1)

 

RB Touches: Isaiah Crowell (8, 11, 13, 7, 7, 12) and Duke Johnson (13, 3, 5, 8, 12, 9)

 

Red zone Targets: Gary Barnidge (2, 0, 2, 1, 3, 1), Travis Benjamin (1, 1, 0, 1, 3, 3), Duke Johnson (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1), Brian Hartline (1, 1, 3, 0, 4, 1) – No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

Red zone Carries: Isaiah Crowell (1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2) and Duke Johnson (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2) – No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

CBs Thrown At: Joe Haden 8, 6, 0, 5*, 5*, 0 – Inactive in Week 9-10, 12-13 (3-34-1, 6-87, 0-0, 4-44, 5-123-2, 0-0), Tramon Williams 2, 13, 7, 5, 4, 4 (1-20, 7-132, 5-69-1, 2-25, 3-67, 4-122-1), Charles Gaines 6 (4-48-1)

 

Analysis: We’ll make quick work here: Johnny Manziel is expected to start over Austin Davis in Week 14 at home against the 49ers. Travis Benjamin (shoulder) should be good to go for this coming week; he averages 6.2 targets per-game with Manziel under center (versus 10 targets per-game without Manziel). Gary Barnidge averages 6.5 targets per-game with Manziel (versus 9 looks per-game when Manziel does not play).

 

Denver Broncos

 

Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (5, 11, 4, 0, 9, 8), Demaryius Thomas (11, 7, 10, 8, 13, 6), Ronnie Hillman (2, 0, 4, 1, 1, 1), C.J. Anderson (1, 2, 1, 2, 4, 1*), Owen Daniels (3, 9, 5, 5, 6, 3), Vernon Davis (1, 4, 6, 2, 3)

 

RB Touches: Ronnie Hillman (20, 7, 11, 22, 15, 19) and C.J. Anderson (15, 8, 3, 14, 19, 8)

 

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

 

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

 

CBs Thrown At: Chris Harris Jr. 5, 5, 5, 2, 3, 2 (4-23, 5-91, 2-2, 2-14, 3-26, 1-10), Aqib Talib 7, 1, 4, 3, 3, 6 (3-44, 1-3, 0-0, 3-79, 1-5, 4-41), Bradley Roby 3, 5, 5, 3, 5, 2 (1-7, 4-23, 4-60, 1-2, 4-36, 1-16)

 

Analysis: C.J. Anderson (ankle) left after just seven carries against San Diego in Week 13 and Ronnie Hillman subsequently turned his 19 carries into just 56 yards. Anderson has sharply out-played Ronnie Hillman since Brock Osweiler took over the starting quarterback job in Denver, turning his 34 carries into 214 yards (6.3 yards per carry), two touchdowns and 3.9 yards after contact per attempt versus Hillman’s 54-217-1 (4.0 YPC), and 2.3 yards after contact per attempt. During that three game span (Week 11-13), 47.1% of Anderson’s carries have gone for 5 or more yards while just 31.5% of Hillman’s attempts have done as much.

 

Houston Texans

 

Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (12, 11, 11, 12, 8, 9), Nate Washington (16, 6*, 5, 6, 4, 11), Cecil Shorts (0, 0, 7, 5, 4, 10), Alfred Blue (0, 5, 1, 3, 1, 0), Jonathan Grimes (1, 3, 1, 3, 1, 2), Chris Polk (3, 2, 0, 0, 1, 1)

 

RB Touches: Alfred Blue (3, 19, 13, 24, 17, 4), Chris Polk (7, 9, 4, 0, 7, 13), Jonathan Grimes (0, 2, 7, 9, 8, 7)

 

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

 

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

 

CBs Thrown At: Johnathan Joseph 3, 8, 9, 4, 5, 2 (3-21, 5-42, 6-57, 2-13, 4-24, 1-53) and Kevin Johnson 3, 3, 5, 8, 8, 5 (3-73-2, 1-12, 4-37, 4-59-1, 4-53, 3-58-2)

 

Analysis: I’ve honestly run out of things to say about the Texans for fantasy purposes, outside of DeAndre Hopkins. Here was Houston’s running back snap split in Week 13 against the Bills: Chris Polk (30), Jonathan Grimes (27), Alfred Blue (9), and “Akeem Hunt” (5). Beyond Hopkins, you’re on your own starting a Texan in the fantasy playoffs.

Indianapolis Colts

 

Targets: T.Y. Hilton (15, 7, 6, 4, 12, 5), Donte Moncrief (6, 7, 4, 8, 9, 1), Frank Gore (8, 3, 3, 5, 3, 5), Andre Johnson (4, 8, 3, 2, 3, 3), Dwayne Allen (1, 3, 3, 1, 4, 1), Coby Fleener (5, 11, 6, 5, 3, 8), Dan Herron (3)

 

RB Touches: Frank Gore (14, 25, 29, 19, 21, 16) and Dan Herron (5)

 

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

 

Red zone Carries: Frank Gore (0, 0, 5, 0, 2, 3)

 

CBs Thrown At: Vontae Davis 4, 5, 10, 5, 11, 5 (1-10, 3-27, 3-46-1, 4-12-1, 6-108, 2-30), Greg Toler 9, 8, 10, 8, 9 (4-74, 5-103, 5-115-1, 6-49, 6-93-1), Darius Butler 1, 3, 4, 4, 6, 6 (1-19, 2-23, 3-14-1, 3-34, 5-43-1, 3-37)

 

Analysis: Colts’ head coach Chuck Pagano said Frank Gore was “beat-to-crap” last week before Week 13. Injured or not, Frank Gore hasn't averaged greater than 4 yards per carry in a game since Week 7 and he's averaged below 4 YPC in 8-of-12 games in his age-32 season. Still, Gore has remained a low-ceiling “RB2” (top-24) since Week 7 with PPR weekly ranks of: RB26, RB16, RB14, RB24, RB42, and RB15.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Targets: Allen Robinson (9, 11, 11, 7, 12, 15), Allen Hurns (8, 8, 9, 4, 9, 0), T.J. Yeldon (3, 3, 6, 4, 5, 4), Julius Thomas (5, 8, 5, 8, 11, 5)

 

RB Touches: T.J. Yeldon (17, 6, 23, 17, 13, 19)

 

Red zone Targets: Allen Robinson (1, 0, 4, 0, 3, 5), Allen Hurns (1, 0, 1, 0, 3, 0), T.J. Yeldon (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Julius Thomas (0, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: T.J. Yeldon (3, 1, 2, 2, 0, 4)

 

CBs Thrown At: Aaron Colvin 8, 8, 3, 9, 5, 1 (4-35, 6-64, 3-30-1, 5-51, 3-49, 1-17) and Davon House 4, 7, 12, 2, 6, 5 (2-24, 4-75-1, 6-89-1, 1-9, 4-41-1, 3-75-1)

 

Analysis: After Allen Robinson’s 10-153-3 (on 15 targets) explosion in Week 13, I’ll just leave you with these per-game receiving averages from RotoViz’s 14TeamMocker: "Allen Robinson in his age-22 (2nd season): 10.3 targets, 5.4-90-0.9 touchdowns per-game; Josh Gordon in his age-22 (2nd season): 10 targets, 6.2-117-0.6 touchdowns per-game."

 

Kansas City Chiefs

 

Targets: Jeremy Maclin (0, 5, 6, 6, 11, 10), Travis Kelce (6, 8, 9, 7, 7, 3), Charcandrick West (5, 6, 5, 2*, 0, 3), Albert Wilson (6, 4, 4, 4, 3, 3), Spencer Ware (0, 0, 0, 1, 3, 2)

 

RB Touches: Charcandrick West (24, 23, 29, 13, 0, 11) and Spencer Ware (2, 2, 2, 12, 22, 9)

 

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

 

Red zone Carries: Charcandrick West (7, 3, 2, 5, 0, 1) and Spencer Ware (0, 0, 0, 5, 1, 3)

 

CBs Thrown At: Marcus Peters 9, 5, 7, 7, 7, 14 (6-125, 3-40-1, 1-17, 4-40, 2-24, 9-92) and Sean Smith 8, 9, 8, 1, 10, 6 (4-49-1, 5-76, 2-19, 1-6, 6-126-2, 3-48-1)

 

Analysis: Here is the full opportunity breakdown between the Chiefs running backs this week -- Charcandrick West: 64.8% snaps, 11 touches, one red zone carry; Spencer Ware: 35.2% snaps, 9 touches, and 3 red zone carries. While it seems West has the clear lead on the playing time front, Spencer Ware will still cut into West’s workload on a weekly basis. I’m hesitant to say West is the better play overall to close out the season in PPR-leagues due to his passing game ability, but Ware getting the bulk of the red zone carries certainly harms West’s floor and ceiling. Both backs are probably best suited as low-end “RB2” (top-24)/flex options during the fantasy playoffs.

 

Miami Dolphins

 

Targets: Jarvis Landry (8, 13, 12, 7, 16, 5), Lamar Miller (5, 7, 8, 3, 4, 2), Jordan Cameron (5, 1, 3, 5, 3, 3), Jay Ajayi (0, 0, 2, 6, 0), DeVante Parker (0, 0, 0, 0, 10, 5)

 

RB Touches: Lamar Miller (14, 17, 22, 9, 8, 21) and Jay Ajayi (5, 6, 6, 7, 4)

 

Red zone Targets: Lamar Miller (0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0), Jarvis Landry (1, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2), Jordan Cameron (0, 0, 1, 1, 2, 0), DeVante Parker (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1) – No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

Red zone Carries: Lamar Miller (2, 1, 3, 1, 0, 0) and Jay Ajayi (1, 1, 0, 1) – No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

CBs Thrown At: Brent Grimes 9, 6, 5, 5, 12, 6 (4-52-1, 5-143-1, 3-32, 9-131-2, 5-56) and 7 (Week 10), 11 (4-35-1, 6-97)

 

Analysis: With Rishard Matthews (ribs) out indefinitely, rookie DeVante Parker was in on 43 of Miami’s 49 total plays in Week 13 against the Ravens. He finished second only to Jarvis Landry in routes run (19) on the 'Fins. With Matthews on the sideline, Parker should be owned in all fantasy leagues for the stretch playoff run and is in a great Week 14 spot against the Giants, who have allowed a top-13 PPR wide receiver in four of their last five games and have allowed six top-13 PPR scorers total during that span (Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks, Mike Evans, Danny Amendola, Brandon Marshall, and Eric Decker).

 

New England Patriots

 

Targets: Rob Gronkowski (9, 5, 7, 7, 10*, 0), Danny Amendola (1, 5, 11, 12, 0, 13), Brandon LaFell (7, 9, 6, 8, 9, 9), Scott Chandler (2, 3, 3, 2, 11, 7), LeGarrette Blount (1, 0, 2, 2, 0, 0), James White (5, 0, 1, 3, 5, 13)

 

RB Touches: LeGarrette Blount (18, 29, 21, 17, 9, 13) and James White (5, 3, 2, 4, 5, 12)

 

Red zone Targets: Rob Gronkowski (0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0), Scott Chandler (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 1), Danny Amendola (0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 3), LeGarrette Blount (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Brandon LaFell (1, 2, 1, 1, 0, 1), James White (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 1)

 

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

 

CBs Thrown At: Malcolm Butler 8, 5, 10, 9, 6, 5 (6-61, 3-15, 3-92-1, 6-92, 5-89, 3-30-1) and Logan Ryan 10, 9, 4, 5, 9, 3 (5-54, 5-88, 3-39, 1-4, 2-40, 2-18)

 

Analysis: Per Rich Hribar, over his past three games, Danny Amendola has seen 26.2%, 30.8% and 22.8% of the Patriots’ targets, finishing as the PPR WR12, WR6 and WR12. With Rob Gronkowski (knee) out indefinitely, Scott Chandler turned his seven targets in Week 13 into 4-61-1 and a TE5 (PPR) performance. He’ll be on the “TE1” (top-12) radar until Gronkowski is fit to return.

 

New York Jets

 

Targets: Brandon Marshall (18, 8, 10, 10, 11, 13), Eric Decker (7, 9, 11, 11, 9, 12), Bilal Powell (0, 0, 0, 7, 5, 13), Chris Ivory (5, 3, 3, 1, 2, 5)

 

RB Touches: Chris Ivory (18, 26, 21, 9, 23, 15) and Bilal Powell (0, 0, 0, 9, 7, 14)

 

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

 

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

 

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) – Inactive in Week 12-13, Buster Skrine 2, 8, 1, 0, 12, 7 (2-11-1, 7-98-1, 1-0, 0-0, 9-119, 4-52), Antonio Cromartie 6, 9, 5, 6, 8, 5 (3-32, 7-140-2, 3-77-1, 2-44, 2-43-1, 1-11)

 

Analysis: Brandon Marshall (70 targets) is second only to Antonio Brown (71) in targets since Week 8 and he has 2-plus red zone targets in 5 of last 6 games. He gets the Titans secondary in Week 14, which was just set on fire by Blake Bortles (24-of-36 passing, 322 yards, and five touchdowns) and Allen Robinson (10-153-3). Giddy up.

 

Oakland Raiders

 

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

 

RB Touches: Latavius Murray (21, 19*, 17, 13, 23, 24)

 

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

 

Red zone Carries: Latavius Murray (2, 1, 0, 1, 3, 4)

 

CBs Thrown At: T.J. Carrie 8, 0, 0, 8, 4, 3 (4-65, 0-0, 0-0, 6-88, 2-33, 3-36) and David Amerson 13, 14, 0, 6, 10, 8 (7-76, 9-174, 0-0, 2-24, 2-41, 6-39)

 

Analysis: In parentheses are Amari Cooper (WR25, WR90, WR16, and WR44) and Michael Crabtree’s (WR35, WR33, WR40, and WR27) weekly PPR finishes over the Raiders last four games. Oakland sees Denver in Week 14 and the Broncos have allowed just four top-24 weekly performances to opposing wide receivers this year.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

 

Targets: Antonio Brown (8, 11, 23, 14, 12, 11), Martavis Bryant (8, 9, 7, 10, 13, 8), Heath Miller (2, 13, 6, 7, 6*, 0), DeAngelo Williams (2, 4, 4, 2, 7, 6), Markus Wheaton (4, 2, 4, 2, 13, 6)

 

RB Touches: DeAngelo Williams (5, 13, 29, 18, 17, 31)

 

Red zone Targets: Heath Miller (0, 1, 0, 3, 0, 0), Antonio Brown (0, 4, 2, 3, 0, 3), Martavis Bryant (2, 2, 1, 4, 1, 2), Markus Wheaton (0, 1, 2, 0, 1, 2), DeAngelo Williams (0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 2)

 

Red zone Carries: DeAngelo Williams (2, 0, 9, 3, 4, 3)

 

CBs Thrown At: William Gay 6, 3, 2, 8, 4, 3 (3-18, 2-23, 2-35, 6-66, 3-37, 2-36), Ross Cockrell 6, 8, 6, 4, 10, 5 (3-68, 4-22-1, 4-40-1, 3-84, 9-125-1, 2-14), Antwon Blake 13, 10, 15, 4, 7, 3 (9-163-1, 7-79, 9-107-1, 3-41, 5-110-3, 2-29)

 

Analysis: Here are Antonio Brown’s weekly PPR ranks when Ben Roethlisberger starts: WR4, WR2, WR13, WR24, WR1, WR1, WR44, and WR2; here are Martavis Bryant’s: WR42, WR34, WR3, WR20, and WR11. Their matchup with Denver looms large in Week 15, but if any wide receiver duo can manage usable production against the Broncos’ stout corners, it would be Brown and Bryant.

 

San Diego Chargers ­­

 

Targets: Antonio Gates (0, 5, 11, 3, 6, 9), Danny Woodhead (12, 3, 10, 2, 6, 7), Stevie Johnson (8, 4, 10, 8, 10, 0*), Ladarius Green (9, 1*, 0, 3, 1, 6), Melvin Gordon (0, 6, 3, 1, 5, 1), Dontrelle Inman (2, 2, 5, 5, 9, 2*), Malcom Floyd (3, 6, 1, 0, 4, 4)

 

RB Touches: Melvin Gordon (7, 23, 14, 16, 19, 13) and Danny Woodhead (16, 5, 12, 7, 10, 6)

 

Red zone Targets: Antonio Gates (5, 0, 0, 1, 0, 3), Stevie Johnson (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 4), Ladarius Green (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Danny Woodhead (1, 3, 0, 2, 0, 3), Malcom Floyd (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0), Dontrelle Inman (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2)  -- No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

Red zone Carries: Danny Woodhead (5, 0, 0, 3, 0, 1) and Melvin Gordon (1, 0, 2, 0, 0, 5) -- No Red Zone Plays in Week 13

 

CBs Thrown At: Jason Verrett 4, 9, 4*, 7, 9, 8 (3-93-2, 6-90, 1-47, 6-35, 4-76, 4-22-1), Brandon Flowers 5, 6, 6, 3, 10, 1 (3-21, 6-81, 5-45, 3-52, 5-42, 1-21), Patrick Robinson 3, 4, 0, 3, 7, 5 (2-15, 2-13, 0-0, 3-28, 5-29-1, 3-16)

 

Analysis: I’m sort of left grasping at straws here, if I'm being honest. Stevie Johnson (groin) left Week 13 early without seeing a target while Dontrelle Inman (neck) had to be carted off of the field. Danny Woodhead hasn’t had a top-24 (“RB2”) performance since Week 9 while Melvin Gordon has turned his 41 carries since the Chargers Week 10 bye into just 152 yards (3.7 yards per carry).

 

Tennessee Titans

 

Targets: Kendall Wright (7, 0, 0, 0, 7, 4), Delanie Walker (6, 8, 5, 10, 8, 12), Harry Douglas (6, 5, 3, 5, 8, 3), Dorial Green-Beckham (2, 9, 2, 6, 5, 6), Dexter McCluster (6, 4, 5, 2, 0, 0), Antonio Andrews (3, 2, 0, 2, 2, 1), David Cobb (0, 1, 0)

 

RB Touches: Antonio Andrews (19, 20, 11, 17, 12, 14), Dexter McCluster (7, 10, 7, 4*, 0, 0), David Cobb (4, 3, 13)

 

Red zone Targets: Kendall Wright (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1), Delanie Walker (0, 3, 0, 0, 0, 2), Harry Douglas (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0), Dorial Green-Beckham (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), Dexter McCluster (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0)

 

Red zone Carries: Antonio Andrews (1, 3, 0, 0, 2, 5), Dexter McCluster (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0), David Cobb (0, 0, 2)

 

CBs Thrown At: Coty Sensabaugh 9, 4, 4, 7, 6, 9 (7-101-1, 1-9, 2-27, 5-77, 4-41-2, 6-71-2) and Perrish Cox 3, 4, 10, 9 (3-100-1, 4-68, 5-28-1, 6-63-3)

 

Analysis: In a sign of (hopefully) the future, Dorial Green-Beckham turned his six targets into 5-119-1 against the Jags’ in Week 13. Still, outside of Delanie Walker, no one in the Titans’ pass catching corps is trustworthy for fantasy purposes. It's worth noting David Cobb received 30 snaps (Antonio Andrews had 40) against the Jaguars, but neither is remotely close to start-worthy in the fantasy playoffs.
