Week 16: NFC Targets & Touches

Updated On: December 25, 2019, 1:09 pm ET

Fantasy football is, at its core, an exercise in risk analysis. Points are our currency and every article we digest, every podcast we engorge ourselves in, every box score we study is aimed at shining a light on safe, bankable volume we can rely on. That’s the purpose served by Targets and Touches, a thorough and exhaustively researched window into which players are making their respective teams tick. This is a weekly fixture here at Rotoworld, informed by data from Airyards.com, Pro Football Focus and Pro-Football-Reference.

Before we open Pandora’s box, please note that stat lines are arranged with the most recent game first while “X” signifies a player’s absence. To make the info more accessible, I also cut out much of the clutter, removing players averaging fewer than one target or carry, anyone already ruled out for the year and other fluff (fullback and receiver carries, for instance) that won’t factor in our decision-making. Each players’ stats will only include the past five games. Anything more would be overkill. 

CHRISTMAS ADDENDUM: No analysis this week. You know how it is—Christmas commitments and such—but thank you all for joining me on this 16-week rollercoaster. And for those who tuned into my Wednesday night Twitch streams and Friday Instagram Q&As throughout the season, just know I couldn’t have done it without you. Happy Holidays from your favorite fantasy writer (if I’m not your favorite I’d still settle for top five)! Now let’s get to the numbers.
