Fantasy Football Week 5 Targets Leaders

Since targets have become a stat, fantasy junkies have fallen in love with it, including us! But just because your favorite WR gets thrown to 12 times each week, that does not guarantee anything! That is why we calculated their Catch % for you!

Darren McFadden's receiving numbers a bit skewed because of a 13 catch Week 1 performance.  He has just 5 receptions since in 3 games and just 201 rushing yards including a 113 yard Week 3!  BOO!

This seems like it is going to be Owen Daniels year and he should pass the 5 TD mark for the first time in his career!
