Fantasy Football Quandary – Are Targets a Vital Statistic?

It appears to be the in vogue measurement in the NFL is the quantity of focuses on a player gets. Just, it’s the occasions the ball is tossed to a player. Clearly it’s significant that a player gets tossed to set up numbers, however is it being over-advertised?

Here are the main 12 designated WRs (Statistics starting at 10/16/09):

Andre Johnson – 52

Nate Burleson – 49

Steve Smith (NYG) – 49

Randy Moss – 48

Notice that five of the top designated WRs don’t appear.

The following four most elevated scoring WRs are DeSean Jackson, Mike Sims-Walker, Santana Moss, and Percy Harvin, which makes them the thirteenth sixteenth positioned dream WRs.

Jackson, Sims-Walker, and Harvin don’t rank among the main 30 designated WRs. Santana Moss is 22nd.

Steve Smith (CAR), Wes Welker, Torry Holt, Anquan Boldin, Justin Gage, Eddie Royal, Mark Clayton, Mushin Muhammad, Bryant Johnson, Bernard Berrian, Louis Murphy, and Patrick Crayton are among the main 30 designated WRs at this point they aren’t among the best 30 dream scoring WRs. That is a faltering 40%.

While it is a helpful measurement, don’t take an excessive amount of confidence in it. The main measurement for a WR is TDs. It is no fortuitous event that the main ten scoring WRs all have 3 or 4 TDs up until now. Clearly a nearby second is yardage. That is the place where the scoring comes from.

PPR associations add a point for each gathering, however I am passionately against PPR associations. It exaggerates ownership collectors and dupes profound dangers. For the existence of me I can not sort out why somebody would concur that 3 gets for 15 yards ought to be more important than 1 30 yard get. That is an alternate conversation for an alternate day.
