Fantasy Football Week 2 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!

With Ray Rice, Reggie Bush & Steven Jackson potentially out Week 3, Bernard Pierce, Joique Bell and Jason Snelling / Jacquizz Rodgers could see a boost in targets this week.   Charles Clay now has back to back 5 reception games.  Is this a thing now?!  Probably not!

We all want Kenbrell Thompkins to become Tom Brady's favorite target with Danny Amendola out, but he catches just 29% of passes thrown his way!  If Andre Johnson does not play in Week 3, DeAndre Hopkins is in for a HUGE week!

Garrett Graham has taken 2 TDs away from Owen Daniels but you should NOT consider owning him in any league format.
