Week 8: AFC Targets & Touches

Tuesday, October 30, 2018


Targets and Touches will only have players’ six most recent games, regardless if they were active or on a bye. The data will be in descending order of games played.

 

All targets and touches data is compiled from Pro Football Reference. Air yards data is sourced via Josh Hermsmeyer’s AirYards.com. Cornerback and routes run data is sourced via Pro Football Focus. The AFC will be released on Tuesdays, while the NFC is published on Wednesday.

 

The goal of these articles is to give you an idea of what the usage looks like for each player within their offenses, allowing you to spot any positive or negative trends regarding how a player is being used, and most importantly — letting the numbers tell the story.

 

Note: This data will stick to players averaging over one target/touch per game. Players are listed in order of target/touch leaders for their respective teams.


Editor's Note: If you love Fantasy Football you have to be playing on DRAFT. It's daily fantasy football snake drafts instead of salary caps.

Baltimore Ravens

Targets: Michael Crabtree (10, 8, 12, 9, 9, 5), John Brown (9, 7, 14, 3, 7, 7), Willie Snead (5, 7, 7, 10, 7, 11), Javorius Allen (7, 4, 2, 8, 3, 5), Alex Collins (4, 1, 4, 0, 4, 2)

 

Air Yards: John Brown (189, 205, 209, 53, 90, 108), Michael Crabtree (99, 71, 84, 142, 121, 104), Willie Snead (27, 52, 59, 123, 57, 96), Javorius Allen (4, 4, 1, -5, -5, 38), Alex Collins (1, 2, 8, 0, 7, 3)

 

Receiving Yards: John Brown (86, 116, 58, 28, 134, 28), Michael Crabtree (61, 29, 66, 93, 66, 31), Willie Snead (39, 56, 55, 60, 23, 54), Javorius Allen (36, 19, 17, 44, 18, 18), Alex Collins (6, 3, 7, 0, 10, 14)

 

Carries: Alex Collins (18, 11, 12, 19, 11, 11), Javorius Allen (6, 10, 8, 1, 3, 0), Lamar Jackson (0, 4, 3, 1, 3, 3)

 

RZ Targets: John Brown (0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 1), Alex Collins (1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0), Javorius Allen (1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1), Michael Crabtree (0, 1, 3, 1, 0, 0), Willie Snead (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0)

 

RZ Carries: Alex Collins (1, 2, 0, 3, 1, 2), Lamar Jackson (0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0), Javorius Allen (2, 4, 2, 0, 1, 0)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Brandon Carr (7-88, 2-16, 3-56, 1-17, 2-12, 1-19), Tavon Young (1-9, 2-39, 3-58, 1-18, 2-9, 1- -2), Jimmy Smith (X, X, 0-0, 2-40, 5-84-1, 5-58)

 

Observations: Javorius Allen has strictly morphed into a receiving back over Baltimore’s last three games, averaging 18 routes and 5.3 targets per in that stint. As shown above, he’s handled a lowly total of four carries in that stretch. Alex Collins’ role on early-downs and near the goal line has stayed constant, but both backs have been rendered to a singular role since UDFA Gus Edwards was promoted in Week 6. Edwards’ presence hasn’t been too significant, playing only 15 snaps in the last two games, but it’s been just enough to matter since this backfield was already an even split. Now add hybrid receiver-turned-receiving back Ty Montgomery to the mix and there's suddenly a caveat to rostering any of the four. Montgomery profiles similarly to (and perhaps better than) Allen, making the latter an outright drop this week. TyMont's presence isn't great for Collins, but I'm not suddenly parting with him, either. Baltimore's quietly averaged the fourth-highest run play rate (62%) inside the five-yard line and projects to face three rush defenses (at Falcons, at Chiefs, at Chargers) ranked in the bottom-third of Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric during the fantasy playoffs. If anything, gauge extremely low offers to Collins' owner knowing he'll either hit pay dirt or be expendable.

  

Buffalo Bills

Targets: Kelvin Benjamin (5, 6, 5, 6, 5, 7), Zay Jones (1, 7, 4, 8, 5, 8), LeSean McCoy (X, 6, 3, 5, 0, 8), Andre Holmes (4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 3), Charles Clay (3, 6, 1, 5, 5, 6), Chris Ivory (4, 0, 0, 1, 6, 2)

 

Air Yards: Kelvin Benjamin (50, 97, 88, 89, 81, 131), Zay Jones (11, 77, 49, 78, 34, 81), Andre Holmes (29, 16, 45, 42, 33, 62), Charles Clay (-1, 24, 10, 14, 41, 70), LeSean McCoy (X, -3, -6, 4, 0, 24), Chris Ivory (10, 0, 0, -1, 4, -3)

 

Receiving Yards: Zay Jones (17, 38, 20, 35, 27, 55), Andre Holmes (29, 8, 0, 20, 13, 45), Kelvin Benjamin (29, 34, 11, 43, 71, 45), Charles Clay (18, 40, 12, 20, 14, 36), LeSean McCoy (X, 13, 23, 21, 0, 82), Chris Ivory (70, 0, 0, 4, 21, 11)

 

Carries: LeSean McCoy (X, 5, 24, 16, 2, 12), Josh Allen (10, 5, 4, 4, X, X), Chris Ivory (20, 6, 14, 6, 16, 6)

 

RZ Targets: Kelvin Benjamin (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Andre Holmes (1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Charles Clay (2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), Zay Jones (0, 1, 1, 3, 1, 0)

 

RZ Carries: Josh Allen (4, 0, 2, 1, X, X), LeSean McCoy (X, 0, 3, 3, 0, 0), Chris Ivory (2, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Tre’Davious White (3-15, 5-89, 0-0, 2-27-1, 1-8, Not Available), Phillip Gaines (X, X, 1-23, 3-33, 0-0, Not Available), Ryan Lewis (3-24, 7-111, 3-43, 0-0, 0-0, Not Available), Taron Johnson (0-0, 3-25, 3-23, 1-12, 5-24-1, Not Available)

 

Observations: Monday night was only the third time LeSean McCoy’s logged a sub-70% snap rate this season, and it coincidently came only 24 hours after he was cleared from the league’s concussion protocol. In those three games, though, he’s averaged 21 touches and ranked top-five among 54 qualifiers with at least 20 routes run in PFF’s telling Yards Per Route Run (2.25) stat. Rather than reacting weekly to Buffalo’s foreseeable game script, it’s best to keep McCoy slotted as an RB3/FLEX as long as he's clear of the team’s injury report. Free agent acquisition Terrelle Pryor is worth a speculative add, too, given the lack of talent surrounding McCoy. It's in the realm of possibilities Buffalo's forced to utilize Pryor at every position (much like Cleveland did two seasons ago) if/when Nathan Peterman falters.

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals

Targets: A.J. Green (9, 8, 8, 10, 12, 14, 7), Tyler Boyd (7, 15, 7, 9, 4, 10), Joe Mixon (X, X, 4, 7, 5, 4), Giovani Bernard (9, 4, X, X, X, X), John Ross (7, 2, X, X, 1, X), C.J. Uzomah (2, 1, 2, 7, 2, 4)

 

Air Yards: A.J. Green (72, 146, 123, 135, 158, 125), Tyler Boyd (113, 56, 87, 67, 28, 82), John Ross (109, 44, X, X, 47, X), C.J. Uzomah (14, 6, 0, 68, 12, 31), Giovani Bernard (9, -14, X, X, X, X), Joe Mixon (X, X, 18, 38, -21, 2)

 

Receiving Yards: A.J. Green (69, 58, 78, 112, 85, 117), Joe Mixon (X, X, 22, 20, 1, 15), Tyler Boyd (132, 100, 44, 62, 27, 138, 76), Giovani Bernard (25, 27, X, X, X, X), C.J. Uzomah (19, 0, 43, 54, 13, 0), John Ross (16, 52, X, X, 0, X)

 

Carries: Joe Mixon (X, X, 22, 11, 13, 21), Giovani Bernard (12, 15, X, X, X, X)

 

RZ Targets: A.J. Green (2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1), John Ross (1, 0, X, X, 0, X), Joe Mixon (X, X, 1, 0, 1, 1), Tyler Boyd (1, 3, 0, 2, 0, 1), C.J. Uzomah (1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1), Giovani Bernard (0, 1, X, X, X, X)

 

RZ Carries: Joe Mixon (X, X, 2, 2, 1, 3), Giovani Bernard (3, 2, X, X, X, X)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: William Jackson (1-27, 7-111-1, 2-17, 0-0, 1-9, 4-119-1), Dre Kirkpatrick (5-58-2, 1-30-1, 0-0, 2-52, 2-63, 5-67), Darqueze Dennard (2-28-1, 5-99, 4-37, 4-67, X, X), Darius Phillips (0-0, 0-0, 0-0, 2-1, 3-22, 7-68)

 

Observations: More than anything, this space has become a weekly support group for everyone still trotting out C.J. Uzomah on Sundays. Elite usage was again there as he played 65-of-66 snaps and ran a route on 31 of Andy Dalton’s 38 dropbacks, but Uzomah saw just four targets and unfortunately hauled in none of them. You’re not going to find a more aggravating TE1 who’s on the field more, as proven by his top-five mark in routes run (126) the past four weeks.

 

Cleveland Browns

Targets: Jarvis Landry (15, 10, 10, 9, 15, 12), David Njoku (2, 7, 11, 12, 6, 0), Rashard Higgins (3, 5, 4, X, X, X), Duke Johnson (2, 6, 1, 5, 4, 3), Antonio Callaway (10, 9, 5, 10, 2, 6), Damion Ratley (0, X, X, 8, 3, 4), Nick Chubb (0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 3)

 

Air Yards: Jarvis Landry (127, 83, 99, 69, 185, 100), David Njoku (23, 51, 87, 63, 56, 0), Rashard Higgins (34, 61, 75, X, X, X), Antonio Callaway (185, 138, 55, 130, 21, 33), Duke Johnson (5, 53, 9, 40, 5, -5), Damion Ratley (0, X, X, 108, 13, 68), Nick Chubb (0, 0, 0, 0, 14, 10)

 

Receiving Yards: Jarvis Landry (103, 34, 69, 11, 97, 39), Rashard Higgins (32, 61, 66, X, X, X), Antonio Callaway (20, 54, 22, 9, 14, 36), David Njoku (36, 52, 69, 55, 52, 0), Duke Johnson (24, 45, 7, 73, 23, 16), Damion Ratley (0, X, X, 82, 23, 21), Nick Chubb (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 10)

 

Carries: Nick Chubb (2, 3, 3, 3, 18, 18), Duke Johnson (2, 2, 5, 2, 1, 2)

 

RZ Targets: Jarvis Landry (3, 2, 1, 2, 4, 2), Antonio Callaway (0, 2, 0, 0, 0, 1), Duke Johnson (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Rashard Higgins (0, 0, 1, X, X, X), David Njoku (0, 0, 0, 2, 1, 0), Damion Ratley (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0)

 

RZ Carries: Nick Chubb (1, 0, 0, 0, 3, 2), Duke Johnson (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Denzel Ward (2-9, 1-28, 5-60, 2-46-1, 4-36, 5-37-1), T.J. Carrie (4-31, 3-41, 6-62, 5-51, 3-28, 5-58, 4-37), E.J. Gaines (0-0, 3-42, 5-51, 1-44, X, X)

 

Observations: David Njoku’s zero targets took the cake as Sunday’s most stunning usage note. He was in on 53-of-64 snaps for Cleveland, but inexplicably failed to see a single look. What’s more is that Duke Johnson’s role has somehow stayed complacent since the Carlos Hyde deal, hitting rock-bottom as he matched his season-low in touches (4) Sunday. Duke’s averaged only 4.5 touches on 43.7% of snaps in two games behind rookie Nick Chubb. If you haven’t dropped him yet, Johnson is worth holding onto for one more week if only to see if his usage increases with new OC Freddie Kitchens at the helm.

 

Denver Broncos

Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (8, 7, 14, 10, 7, 4), Demaryius Thomas (5, 7, 6, 4, 6, 7), Courtland Sutton (3, 6, 6, 4, 3, 4), Phillip Lindsay (2, 2, 4, 7, 1, 3), Jeff Heuerman (4, 7, 4, 6, X, 5), Devontae Booker (7, 2, 6, 3, 1, 4), Royce Freeman (1, 0, 4, 0, 0, X)   

 

Air Yards: Emmanuel Sanders (35, 58, 99, 70, 106, 52), Demaryius Thomas (54, 49, 124, 64, 41, 90), Courtland Sutton (38, 92, 44, 17, 72, 78), Jeff Heuerman (12, 52, 15, 43, X, 62), Phillip Lindsay (0, 0, -3, 1, -6, -11), Royce Freeman (3, 0, 0, 0, 0, X), Devontae Booker (30, -4, 3, 6, -2, -3)

 

Receiving Yards: Emmanuel Sanders (96, 38, 45, 72, 115, 102, 57), Demaryius Thomas (63, 24, 105, 57, 42, 30), Courtland Sutton (37, 51, 18, 58, 28, 78), Phillip Lindsay (0, 10, 20, 48, 6, 17), Jeff Heuerman (7, 57, 18, 23, X, 4), Devontae Booker (34, 9, 59, 14, -1, 23), Royce Freeman (5, 0, 16, 0, 0, X)

 

Carries: Phillip Lindsay (4, 12, 12, 4, 14, 18), Royce Freeman (13, 8, 5, 9, 13, X), Devontae Booker (5, 1, 0, 2, 0, 9)

 

RZ Targets: Emmanuel Sanders (0, 0, 3, 1, 0, 0), Demaryius Thomas (0, 0, 0, 2, 0, 2), Jeff Heuerman (2, 1, 1, 3, X, 4), Devontae Booker (1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0), Courtland Sutton (0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 0), Phillip Lindsay (0, 0, 2, 0, 0, 1)

 

RZ Carries: Phillip Lindsay (0, 3, 3, 1, 2, 2), Royce Freeman (3, 2, 0, 1, 1, X), Devontae Booker (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Chris Harris Jr. (2-13, 6-47, 1-12, 2-25, 5-44, 1-6), Bradley Roby (3-33-1, 3-24, 3-125-2, 3-45, 3-17, 7-111-1), Adam Jones (1-6, 4-12, 0-0, X, X, X), Tramaine Brock (1-1, 0-0, 0-0, 0-0, 1-21, 0-0)

 

Observations: Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker worked as Denver’s only two backs sans Royce Freeman (ankle). Lindsay was taken off special teams with the sole purpose of handling more backfield work, and he did so to the tune of 21 touches on 41 (56%) snaps. Booker got 13 touches on 32 (44%) snaps, totaling 18 routes to Lindsay’s 17, as well. Booker admittedly looked spry and did just enough to warrant deep-league PPR FLEX appeal if Freeman remains out, but this is obviously Lindsay’s job to keep. Courtland Sutton had totaled more receiving and air yards than Demaryius Thomas on half the targets (13 to 7) the past two games, and was already operating as the team's No. 2 wideout prior to the latter being dealt. Thomas' departure also vacates eight red zone targets (including three inside the 10) and 19% of Denver's targets as a whole. Sutton won't shore up all that available opportunity, but second-year UDFA Tim Patrick has run double-digit routes just once this season. The impressive 84th-percentile SPARQ rookie will have every chance to thrive as the team's sole downfield burner, and need be owned wherever available. He's also a Week 9 cash game lock across DFS sites given his comical pre-trade salary. 

 

Houston Texans

Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (10, 12, 13, 6, 8, 7), Will Fuller (11, 5, 3, 3, 6, 6), Ryan Griffin (4, 1, 9, 5, X, X), Lamar Miller (6, 0, 0, 3, 3, 2), Keke Coutee (X, 15, 7, 5, 3, X), Alfred Blue (0, 1, 3, 8, 3, 0)

 

Air Yards: DeAndre Hopkins (116, 182, 201, 56, 93, 74), Will Fuller (185, 33, 8, 77, 104, 83), Ryan Griffin (48, 1, 61, 39, X, X), Lamar Miller (35, 0, 0, 17, -11, 3), Keke Coutee (X, 51, 60, 27, 12, X), Alfred Blue (1, 3, 8, 23, 0, 0)

 

Receiving Yards: DeAndre Hopkins (86, 169, 151, 63, 50, 82), Will Fuller (101, 49, 15, 33, 68, 124), Ryan Griffin (44, 12, 65, 0, X, X), Lamar Miller (41, 0, 0, 25, -1, 0), Keke Coutee (X, 109, 51, 33, 3, X), Alfred Blue (0, 4, 0, 73, 17, 0)

 

Carries: Lamar Miller (10, 14, 0, 15, 22, 18), Deshaun Watson (5, 6, 10, 2, 7, 1), Alfred Blue (4, 13, 20, 7, 8, 15)

 

RZ Targets: DeAndre Hopkins (1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 2), Will Fuller (2, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1), Ryan Griffin (1, 0, 4, 1, X, X), Alfred Blue (0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0), Keke Coutee (X, 1, 1, 1, 0, X)

 

RZ Carries: Lamar Miller (2, 4, 0, 1, 2, 4), Deshaun Watson (2, 1, 5, 0, 0, 0), Alfred Blue (0, 1, 4, 1, 0, 2)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Jonathan Joseph (4-53, 9-155, 1-8, 4-51, 6-52, 0-0), Kareem Jackson (1-30, 1-13, 1-11, 2-15, 6-51, 5-61), Aaron Colvin (5-57, 10-111, 0-0, 0-0, 0-0, 0-0), Shareece Wright (2-27, 7-60-1, 2-43, 2-17-1, X, X)

 

Observations: Prior to Houston’s last two games, Lamar Miller was strictly a usage-based RB1 that hadn’t eclipsed 70 yards since Week 2. In his last two, though, he’s handled 40 backfield carries for 233 yards (5.82 YPC) on 63% of Houston’s snaps. His on-field reps likely would have increased had the Texans not led 42-23 late in the fourth quarter Thursday, allowing Alfred Blue to close the game with eight touches on the team’s throwaway drive. Miller’s admittedly benefitted from Houston’s protective approach of late, scaling back Deshaun Watson’s pass attempts to 25 > 24 > 20 over the last three games to ensure his lungs don’t cave in, but Warren Sharp’s dynamic Strength of Schedule fortuitously indicates Houston faces an easier slate of run defenses to close the year. With no reported return date set for D’Onta Foreman (Achilles’, PUP) yet, Miller’s worth acquiring at cost with the outlook he reaches his ceiling more frequently during the latter half of the season. Keke Coutee's outlook took a hit when the Texans acquired Demaryius Thomas, but not all hope is lost. Coutee's floor is still safe given his shallow route tree and 5 aDOT, while Thomas will try and work downfield as a (very) poor man's Will Fuller (torn ACL). Thomas' quality of targets will undoubtedly increase going from Case Keenum to Watson, but it's worth noting 78.5% (44-of-56) of DT's targets were deemed catchable by PFF, leading to a self-inflicted 13.6% drop rate. Only Michael Crabtree's averaged a higher drop rate (17.3%) among the 27 receivers with at least 50 targets this year.

Observations: Eric Ebron had buoyed Jack Doyle’s (hip) absence the past five games into elite tight end usage and an ensuing top-three ranking on the year. With Doyle back in the lineup Sunday, though, Ebron’s previous averages of 10 targets and 37.8 routes plummeted to three and 10. Ebron was inevitably in on just 18% of the Colts’ offensive snaps, too, whereas he was previously playing 75% as the team’s interim starter. With Doyle (6/70/1 Sunday) presumably healthy, Ebron need be downgraded to a boom-bust touchdown-dependent TE1 (as opposed to one guaranteed volume). In his last two games, Marlon Mack ranks second among all running backs in carries (44) and fantasy points (59), trailing only Adrian Peterson (50 carries) and Todd Gurley (62 points) in those respective categories. Only one week after posting career-highs in snap rate (56%) and touches (21) against the Bills, Mack outdid himself with career-highs (again) in snap rate (62.8%), carries (25), and total touches (27) versus the Raiders. Running behind an O-line currently ranked top-five in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards metric, Mack’s arguably a borderline RB1 (barring continued injuries) the rest of the way.

Air Yards: Donte Moncrief (31, 46, 186, 49, 64, 90), Keelan Cole (56, 8, 113, 49, 72, 22), Dede Westbrook (27, 53, 50, 63, 13, 31), T.J. Yeldon (11, -3, 29, -5, 6, -1), Leonard Fournette (X, X, 1, X, X, X), James O’Shaughnessy (-6, 5, 58, 55, X, X), Carlos Hyde (X, X, X, X, X, 4), D.J. Chark (4, 0, 86, 28, 51, 30)

 

Receiving Yards: Keelan Cole (40, 15, 70, 41, 21, 18), Dede Westbrook (31, 130, 55, 38, 17, 31), Donte Moncrief (16, 109, 76, 0, 76, 54), T.J. Yeldon (46, 48, 69, 29, 40, 83), Leonard Fournette (X, X, 5, X, X, X), James O’Shaughnessy (0, 28, 27, 29, X, X), Carlos Hyde (X, X, X, X, X, 0), D.J. Chark (0, 6, 68, 0, 31, 41)

 

Carries: T.J. Yeldon (7, 18, 10, 8, 12, 2), Leonard Fournette (X, X, 11, X, X, X), Blake Bortles (5, 3, 4, 4, 6, 8), Carlos Hyde (X, X, X, X, X, 6)

 

RZ Targets: T.J. Yeldon (0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0), Donte Moncrief (0, 0, 3, 0, 0, 1), Keelan Cole (0, 1, 2, 0, 2, 0), Dede Westbrook (0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 3), D.J. Chark (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1), Carlos Hyde (X, X, X, X, X, 1)

 

RZ Carries: T.J. Yeldon (0, 5, 0, 0, 0, 1), Leonard Fournette (X, X, 2, X, X, X), Blake Bortles (0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1)

 

CB Catches-Yards-Touchdowns Allowed: Jalen Ramsey (1-6, 2-15, 3-59, 1-1, 3-50-1, 3-31), D.J. Hayden (X, X, X, X, X, X), A.J. Bouye (5-58, 1-6, 4-32, 5-63, 6-68, X), Tyler Patmon (1-7, 5-49, 3-49, 2-17, 1-3, X)

 

Observations: Even with Carlos Hyde active, T.J. Yeldon started and played 37 snaps to Hyde’s 28. The latter out-carried Yeldon 6-2 on the day but was eventually game-scripted off the field. Both project for diminishing roles behind Leonard Fournette after the bye. The Jaguars’ receiver usage will also be worth monitoring post-bye, as Keelan Cole was replaced by rookie D.J. Chark following his second lost fumble of the year. Chark (4/41) saw just five targets on the day, but notably worked in three-wide sets and ran the third-most routes (41) behind Dede Westbrook (49) and Donte Moncrief (47). Cole finished with 10 routes on 15 snaps.
