WR Targets: Larry Fitzgerald and DeAndre Hopkins Lead The Way

WR Targets takes you behind the scenes with the most advanced target information, including receiving fantasy points over expectation (reFPOE), air yards, receiver air conversion ratio (RACR), and weighted opportunity rating (WOPR). Did you know that 14 wide receivers saw double-digit targets in Week 10? Larry Fitzgerald and DeAndre Hopkins tied for the most with 14. Both WRs have played 95 percent or more of the offensive snaps, are currently in the top five in PPR formats, and have posted positive receiving fantasy points over expectation (reFPOE), which suggests they are outperforming their volume. Fitzgerald and Hopkins are talented enough to rise above poor quarterback play.

WR Targets

We’ll pick up the analysis from last week as you prepare to attack the waiver wire for Week 11. This week, we will continue to leverage numerous resources, including Josh Hermsmeyer’s Air Yards.1
  1. WOPR is a weighted combination of the share of team targets a player receives and the share of team air yards. RACR or Receiver Air Conversion Ratio is an efficiency metric that rolls up catch rate and yards after the catch into one number. It can also be thought of as the number of receiving yards a player creates for every air yard thrown at him.  (back)
