Target Time: Week 8
By Jeff Brubach
Week 8 was highlighted by one of the finest wide receiver performances the NFL has ever seen, as Calvin Johnson treated fantasy owners to a heaping pile of fantasy points and a stern reminder of why he was worth the early draft pick this season. Megatron wasn’t the only wide receiver making noise in Week 8, as the continued absence of Matt Ryan’s top targets in Atlanta opened the door once again for Harry Douglas to shine. This week’s Top Five list also includes a tight end not named Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, or Jordan Cameron, which is quite impressive. Put that bowl of Halloween candy down, turn the porch light off and let’s check out the five most targeted receiving options from Week 8, as well as some other notable target totals in the world of fantasy football.
