Fantasy Football Week 7 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!

Fred Jackson will be out for a while with a groin injury, and the Buffalo Bills lost C.J. Spiller for the rest of the season, due to a broken collarbone.  Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown will fill in for Kyle Orton's Bills.  18 of Jackson's 42 targets (43%) have come in Orton's 3 starts.  Orton will dump it off to his backs, so both Dixon and Brown will be good PPR options.

Julio Jones might lead the NFL in targets, and is 3rd in the NFL in receiving yards, but the Atlanta Falcons (cough Matt Ryan cough) offense has destroyed some fantasy owners this season.  14 players have as many TDs as Jones/White combined (5)!  Ryan has thrown a single TD in 4 starts this, 3 in each of the other three games.

I drafted Jimmy Graham with my first round pick in multiple leagues.  I wish I picked Julius Thomas instead!  Larry Donnell might be high on this list, but his fantasy value is LOW, even after gaining 90 yards on 7 catches (2 fumbles lost).  It's time to move on, we just hope you didn't do anything crazy to make him your lone TE!
