The Target Report: WRs

Targets are passes thrown to - including receptions, incompletions, interceptions, passes defended, etc. A high target number can signal a QB's go-to guy, and can indicate that receptions may be on the way, even if they aren't showing up in the box score this week. However, it should be noted that receptions are the best indicator of future receptions.

Here we present you with the target leaders by position from last week, and detailed target stats for the past two weeks combined. The Target Report is designed to help you find possible break-out candidates, expecially in PPR formats.
