Fantasy Football Target Watch – Week 15

To account for byes and missed time, the stats below are presented as per-game numbers. The far-right column shows the differential between recent target market share1 and earlier season share.2

Keep in mind that because this article publishes Monday, Washington and Carolina have yet to play their Week 15 game. Their data reflects Weeks 13 and 14 only.

Jerick McKinnon saw nine targets in Adrian Peterson’s return Sunday, with Peterson himself seeing just one and Matt Asiata seeing one as well. McKinnon has seen a whopping 21 targets over the past three weeks, a huge increase over the 2.2 per game he was averaging from Weeks 1-12.

Lance Dunbar has seen seven targets over the past two weeks, and had a touchdown reception called back by a holding penalty last night on Sunday Night Football. He’s had a disappointing season coming off a knee injury that was ultimately more severe than first reported, but he makes for an interesting dynasty stash as a pass-catching specialist who is set to be an unrestricted free agent after the season. He caught 21 passes in the Cowboys’ first three games in 2015 before the injury.

T.J. Yeldon leads all backs in target market share over the past three weeks, a rare feat this season for anyone not named David Johnson or Le’Veon Bell. He caught five of Blake Bortles’ putrid 12 completions Sunday.

Ladarius Green left Week 15 with a concussion, but not before seeing eight more targets. He’s averaged 8.3 per game over the past three games, which is high-end TE1 volume. Green has an extensive history of concussions, so this is a situation to monitor.

Cameron Brate has seen 22 targets over the past three weeks, the same amount as Mike Evans. He makes for a good Week 16 play in a projected shootout at the Superdome in New Orleans.

Kyle Rudolph has averaged 10 targets per game over the past four weeks, a significant increase from the 6.8 per game he saw over the season’s first 10 games.

Matt Barkley has targeted the WR position heavily since taking over as the Bears starting QB. Alshon Jeffery saw nine targets in his return to action yesterday, but Cameron Meredith and Deonte Thompson both exceeded him, with 13 and 10 respectively. All three had strong fantasy days.

The Bears draw Washington next week, meaning Jeffery could draw a lot of Josh Norman. There is value in the Bears’ receiving corps right now, and Jeffery doesn’t appear to have completely sucked all the available targets up.

In Julio Jones’ absence, Aldrick Robinson churned out a 100-yard outing and Taylor Gabriel scored again, but they saw just five and six targets respectively. Interestingly, both totals were good for market shares over 20 percent, as Atlanta threw just 24 times compared to 41 rush attempts in a game with heavy positive game script against the 49ers’ bad rush defense. Carolina is a plus matchup for Atlanta WRs in Week 16, but monitor Jones’ status.

Julian Edelman has seen 11 or more targets in five straight games, and posted a very respectable line against Denver’s elite secondary in Week 15. He’s a must-start against the Jets, who he went for 8-83 against in Week 12.

Jarvis Landry has been all over the map this season. He posted his fourth 100-yard effort in Week 15 on just four targets, his second-fewest in any game this year. He started the season with four straight games in double digits for targets, then was in single digits for seven straight while Jay Ajayi emerged. He followed that up with 11 catches for 87 yards on 14 targets against the Ravens — a very Landry-esque line — but has now posted back-to-back 100-yard efforts on a total of 10 targets in the two games since. His YPT in those two games were 17.17 and 27, far exceeding his previous season high of 10.38. My best guess is his volume stays low and the YPT drops as well against the Bills, making him a difficult Week 16 start.
