Fantasy Football Week 8 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!

Ellington had a big day and is sure to continue to pick up more touches week after week so get him on your roster!  Steven Jackson came back for Atlatna, limited touches, but enough to start the decline of Jacquizz.

Mike Williams is done for the season which should result in more targets for Vincent Jackson or the rise of TE Timothy Wright.  Kellen Clemens makes his WRs have no value in fantasy so say bye bye to Austin, Pettis and Givens.

Even with the rise of Eifert, Gresham managed to catch a TD in the Bengals beats down of the Jets.  If the Giants continue to win football games, you will see an increase in Myers production.
