Fantasy Football: Week 6 Targets

October 18, 2011 at 1:14 pm Leave a comment

Listing the top targeted players in the NFL during Week Six with some commentary and also explaining the numbers.  My recommendations at the bottom for who you should pickup or try to trade for.

  • 1. Michael Crabtree
  • 2. Brandon Pettigrew
  • 3. Aaron Hernandez
  • 4. Mike Williams
  • 5. Greg Little
  • 6. Darren Sproles
  • 7. Marques Colston
  • 8. Fred Davis
  • 9. Pierre Garcon
  • 10.  Arian Foster
  • 11. Jimmy Graham
  • 12. Jabar Gaffney
  • 13. Nate Burleson
  • 14. Kellen Winslow
  • 15.  Wes Welker

The supposed “diva” himself, led all WRs vs. that suspect but improved Detroit secondary, while Vernon Davis only got 2.  With Braylon and Josh out, he will continue to be the most targeted player especially when Vernon is asked to block all day.  Pettigrew and Hernandez have established themselves as the secondary option behind Calvin and Welker who were both double teamed all afternoon.  The rookie Greg Little has emphaised out of the bye and was one inch away from a big day, but 7 points was still serviceable.  Gaffney saw a spike in targets because the Eagles do a great job against #1 WRs.  Garcon is averaging over 100 yards and a touchdown in his last 3 games…clearly the #1 now. 

  • 16. Greg Jennings
  • 17. Miles Austin
  • 18. Greg Olsen
  • 19. Stevie Johnson
  • 20. Brandon Gibson
  • 21. Danario Alexander
  • 22. Greg Salas
  • 23. Anquan Boldin
  • 24. Calvin Johnson
  • 25. Brent Celek
  • 26. Jerome Simpson
  • 27. Percy Harvin
  • 28. Darrius Heyward-Bey
  • 29. Kevin Walter
  • 30. Benjamin Watson

Darrius Heyward-Bey keep improving.  Unrealistically many expected him to produce right away as a top 10 pick, but it was always gonna take the former track star time to improve his game and he certainly has…best Oakland WR to own, although Boller will limit the offense.  StL WRs take a hit after their best game with the acquisition of Brandon Lloyd.  Really like his upside and Salas since the Rams schedule gets much easier after the midway point of the season.  Walter is the safer option between him and Jones but they are desperation plays and Johnson could be back soon.  Simpson flashed his talent again against a weak Indy secondary that is a good matchup for most, if not all, #1 WRs and now good WR2. 

  • 31. Mercedes Lewis
  • 32. Mario Manningham
  • 33. Jahvid Best
  • 34. Dez Bryant
  • 35. Reggie Wayne
  • 36. Steve Smith
  • 37. Jeremy Shockey
  • 38. Visante Shancoe
  • 39. Bernard Berrian
  • 40. Devin Hester
  • 41. Jacoby Jones
  • 42. Matt Forte
  • 43. DeSean Jackson
  • 44. Ray Rice
  • 45. Jeremy Maclin

Lewis is finally getting the targets, but not the catches.  Manningham reasserted himself, playing and producing more than Cruz.  Hester made a nice play this weekend and although hit or miss might be he best FFB WR for the Bears.

  • MoMass
  • Hakeem Nicks
  • Rob Gronk
  • A.J. Green
  • Santana
  • Dallas
  • Jenkins
  • Heath Miller
  • Fred Jax
  • Collie
  • Hartline
  • Mike Thomas
  • Mike Wallace
  • Benn
  • Gresham
  • Nelson
  • Kendricks*
  • Driver
  • Branch
  • SJax
  • Roddy

Roddy drew two big PI calls that drove Fantasy Football owners crazy.  Steven Jackson looks like his old self.  Lance Kendricks finally has gained some confidence and hopefully he is over the drops, and ready to be a consistent option with the addition of Lloyd.  Benn continues to make big plays but is too hit or miss.  Mike Thomas is the #1 but the upside of that offense is limited and will always draw the #1 CB.  Dallas Clark ain’t dead yet and is still a fine player.  Moss will probably miss Grossman, at least a little.
