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!

With Ryan Mathews suffering a concussion this week, Danny Woodhead is a nice addition for Week 6 for those of you losing Lamar Miller to the BYE week.

I would have recommended Robert Woods had the Bills not lost EJ Manuel. You can still use him in deeper leagues with BYE weeks for Roddy White, Julio Jones, Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.  My favorite option at the moment is Austin Pettis who scored twice Week 5.  I picked him up after Week 4 and reap the benefits.  You should give him a go!
