The wide receivers in Week 10 certainly enjoyed a large workload, didn’t they? Seventeen wide receivers saw at least 10 targets, with nine of the players in question commanding a 30% target share within their own offenses. If there is one curiosity that emerged from this week, it is that in spite of so many players seeing so many targets, 11 of the players failed to score a touchdown.
Here’s the full list of WRs who commanded at least 10 targets in the last week of NFL action.
Double-Digit Targets in Week 10
Remember when Keenan Allen was on pace for an all-time great WR season after three weeks? Yeah, things sure have changed since then.
D.K. Metcalf commanded double-digit targets for the first time in his career against the 49ers on Monday Night. The Seahawks rookie is the best performing first-year WR through the opening 10 weeks of the season. If Tyler Lockett is forced to miss extended time following the Seahawks bye, Metcalf could well be a league winner.
The verdict may still be out on Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, especially given his love of fumbling. But the early indications are that the Giants may have found him a playmaker in fellow first-year WR Darius Slayton. The two are forging quite an efficient partnership, as the image below shows.
Davante Adams and Robert Woods, despite both clearing 500 yards receiving on the year, are both still searching for their first touchdowns of the season. If they didn’t play another game in 2019, they would own the seventh and eighth-best single-season yardage totals with zero trips to the end zone since 2010. But both players trail Mike Williams, who has 585 scoreless yards in 2019. His is the 4th highest yardage tally.1

- The image from the Screener shows a single touchdown for Dwayne Bowe in 2014. Believe me, as a Bowe owner that year, he did, in fact, score zero times.
