Target Time: Week 4
By Jeff Brubach
The NFL season is now four weeks old and the target totals are piling up for the usual suspects in fantasy football land, but Week Four gave us some new faces on our weekly Top Five list of most targeted players. Four weeks of data has also provided more extensive information on which NFL defenses are surrendering the most fantasy production to opposing offenses. Alternatively, we are beginning to get a solid idea of which teams have horrendous defensive units (New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers, I’m looking in your direction) that require their offenses to utilize the air attack in weekly comeback attempts. While these scenarios can certainly fluctuate weekly, it helps us to get a feel for which players are in for healthy target totals all season long. Let’s now take a look at the most targeted players from Week Four, along with some additional players with notable target totals.
