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!

Bradshaw has never been known as a pass catcher, and just once in his career caught more than 34 passes, but last night on Monday Night Football Andrew Luck found him twice out of the backfield, in the red zone, for TDs.  His career total reception TDs jumped from 3 to 5.

I had to go double check that Maclin Catch% but its correct.  Nick Foles has targeted Maclin on nearly 27% of his throws!  Quick has caught 30% of the Rams completions.
