The Top 54 WR targets for Week 2.

1-10

1. Vincent Jackson (15)
2. Miles Austin (15)
3. Jeremy Maclin (15)
4. Steve Johnson (14)
5. A.J. Green (14)
6. Steve Smith (13)
7. Kenny Britt (13)
8. David Nelson (13)
9. Wes Welker (11)
t-10. Nate Washington (11)
t-10. Brandon Marshall

Analysis: A.J. Green showed a ton of confidence and skill gaining 124 yards on 10 catches with a sweet TD.  David Nelson, a Fantasy Football sleeper, enjoyed his breakout performance by catching the winning TD in Buffalo’s comeback win (10 catches for 83 yards).  Then, you have two Titans … we know Britt was a steal, but Nate Washington posted his second straight solid day and seems to be the #2 receiving option.

12-22

12. Deion Branch (10)
13. Austin Collie (10)
14. Mike Thomas (10)
15. Santana Moss (9)
16. Andre Johnson (9)
17. Nate Burleson (9)
18. Larry Fitzgerald (9)
19. Devin Hester (9)
20. Jerome Simpson (9)
21. Mike Wallace (9)
22. Eric Decker (9)

Analysis: Austin Collie back on the radar with ten targets after being the odd man out last week.  Look for his production to increase.  Branch knows that offense and gets open. Another sleeper, Eric Decker, had his breakout performance too with Lloyd inactive and Royal getting hurt.  Jerome Simpson is not being forgotten about by Dalton, who keeps improving every game.  Hester was targeted a bunch, but only caught one ball.  Burleson led the Lions in targets.  Looks like the Jaguars are going with the rookie.

23-39

23. Reggie Wayne (8)
24. Jabar Gaffney (8)
25. Greg Jennings (8)
26. Derek Hagan (8)
27. Dwayne Bowe (8)
28. Percy Harvin (8)
29. Julio Jones (8)
30. Denarius Moore
31. Anquan Boldin (7)
32. Calvin Johnson (7)
33. Ted Ginn (7)
34. Legedu Naanee (7)
35. Brian Hartline (7)
36. Andre Roberts (7)
37. Preston Parker (7)
38. Titus Young (7)
39. Dane Sanzenbacher (7)

Analysis: Another one of my sleepers, Denarius Moore, made the most out of his opportunity with DHB and Ford out…hauling in a 50-yard TD over two defender to cap a 146 yard day.  His role will increase but Ford is important to the offense, meanwhile Hagan stepped up for HeyBey and could win that job sooner.  Moore a top pickup. Gaffney had decent production again, 5-62, working with his former teammate.  Rookie Titus Young garnered some targets, more than the TEs, and gaining 89 yards.  Forgotten prospects Preston Parkers looks to have found a role with TB, catching six for 98.  Rookie Danzenbacher was born for the slot, but Bennett occupies that position.

40-54

40. Hines Ward (6)
41. Antonio Brown (6)
42. Ben Obomanu (6)
43. Early Doucet (6)
44. Mohamed Massaquoi (6)
45. Johnny Knox (6)
46. Donald Jones (6)
47. Lee Evans (5)
48. Josh Morgan (5)
49. Pierre Garcon (5)
50. Brandon LaFell (5)
51. Greg Little (5)
52. Davone Bess (5)
53. Dexter McCluster (5)
54. Donte’ Stallworth (5)

Analysis: Ward and Brown got the same amount of targets which is interesting considering that game was not close. McCluster has WR eligibility in ESPN league and should be in a committee at RB, must make a claim for him!  Little was targeted 5 times and could start creeping in on that #1 role already.  LaFell has made a nice improvement this season, but is behind the TEs and Smith on the pecking order.

Absent: Santonio (4), Williams (4), Moore (4) Roddy (3), DeSean (2), Plaxico (2), Ocho (2), Nelson (2)
