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.
