We are back once again with our weekly look at the wide receivers who saw the most targets in the last week of NFL action.
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 13
Regular readers of this article will remember that after Week 9 I noted that Mike Evans was setting a career pace in terms of production. This pace has slowed considerably since then.
Sunday was a rare good game for Alshon Jeffery, although he wasn’t able to push the Eagles onto victory over the Miami Dolphins. It has been an up-and-down fantasy season for Jeffery. But maybe his Week 13 deeds can be the catalyst for a strong finish.
It may hurt their chances of “winning” the first overall pick. But the Bengals made the decision to go back to Andy Dalton this past week. Dalton led his side to a victory over Washington whilst feeding his best playmaker Tyler Boyd. Boyd and his owners (if anyone of them have made it to their playoffs) will certainly benefit from the ending of the Ryan Finley era in the coming weeks.
Week 13 was also a monster day for Robert Woods. He became the second player this season to see 19 targets in a game. He commanded a whopping 44% of the Rams targets against the Cardinals. Woods was able to post superb fantasy numbers despite once again failing to find the end zone. If Woods was to not play again this season, he would own the fourth-most receiving yards in a scoreless season in NFL history. It would also be the second-most since the 2000 season 1.
