29 Writers Vote for the 2017 Target Leaders – Avoid

We asked the RotoViz staff to rank their top-five picks to lead the NFL in targets for 2017. Since leading the league in targets requires elite talent and favorable circumstances, the results aren’t particularly shocking, nor should they be. But we did have plenty of dissent at the top and a few dark horses definitely crept in. Twenty-nine writers offered contributions to this series. In Part 1, we looked at the long shot selections. In Part 2, we looked at the favorites. In this edition, we’ll examine the high-profile guys our writers think you should avoid this season.

Which WRs Are Receiving Too Much Hype?

When we asked our writers to name the WRs who are receiving too much target hype, the resulting list include a passel of big names and even a few trendy sleepers. Quincy Enunwa, Pierre Garcon, Amari Cooper, Alshon Jeffery, and Emmanuel Sanders all made the list, while individual writers were even skeptical of Julio Jones and Antonio Brown. Each of those players received a single vote, but seven WRs found themselves in the sights of multiple rankers.

  1. Great piece. tho im having trouble figuring out who/when to take. ive seen warnings on drafting based on projections only cuz of the boom-bust types we like. Shawn, will u be writing a list of WRs you like the most? or a draft ranking? and maybe when u typically begin grabbing Rbs or TEs...cooper/Hopkins/baldwin? etc.
