Targets Per Snap Weeks 6 to 1 2017

Targets Per Snap Weeks 6 to 1 2017 analysis starts with a landscape view of each team’s total number of players targeted by the week. 

How player concentrated are each team’s targets?

Interestingly, in the following table, the least concentrated targeting team was PIT and the most targeting team was CLE. I used this data to look for adding players or in trades.

The teams at the top of the table are distributing their targets to fewer players. Finding a 2 or 3 deep player there may be more valuable than commonly thought!


Targeting Concentration Per Team- #Players Targeted




Total Weekly Team Targets per Snap.

The top teams in numbers of Targets/Snap are LAC, NE, ATL, PIT, ARI, NYG and CHI

The Bottom Boys are IND, BUF, DEN, WAS, TEN, HOU and CIN

Combining Concentration and Target per Snaps give you an insightful view of each teams targeting plans each week.

Players from the Bottom Teams had better be efficient and score more.

Team Targets per Snaps Averages for Weeks 1 to 6 and Change.

Most FF players focus on the WR but the differences come out in the RB and TEs usages by teams.

Running Backs

LAC, ARI, NO, CHI, NE, JAX, and NYJ are the top RB users. The Deeper RB Players on those teams depth charts can have value vs the Bottom teams of TEN, IND, DEN, ATL, CIN, and HOU.


I present a big landscape view of RB Targets/Snaps of Weeks 6 to 4 vs Week 1 to 3. Bye weeks are considered and using averages satisfies that issue!

JAX, LAC, NYJ, MIA and DEN RB Targeting has nicely increased!

However, CHI, GB, DET, SF, OAK, LAR, and PHI have dropped to league bottom! Beware of RBs from these Teams in PPR especially. What has happened to them? Caution!


Tight Ends

The top teams are NYG, MIN, GB, OAK, and NE! Be thoughtful for bye week replacements. Its a tough year for TEs so far! This data can help you out!

Note all the buzz over Evan Engram in NYG! The top team in targets per snap for TEs! Rudolph is also back as MIN is doing well. NE GB OAK BUF and KC are all doing well in the TE targeting!  Like O’Leary in BUF as a play until Clay is back! 


WAS, ATL DEN, and TEN are improving in Weeks 4 to 6 and NYG, DAL, CH, and GB are declining from Weeks 1 to 3! Use thoughtfully!


Wide Receivers 

The best teams for WRs by targets per snap are ATL, PIT, TB, SF, LAR, and NE!

NYG with the injuries implies Shepard has high expectations and Lewis there as well. One of the new faces can also have an impact! Be awake! 

Interesting names at the bottom. WAS, IND, and BUF jump out to me as bottom teams as their WRs highly drafted have underperformed!


PIT, BAL, CIN and WAS have been recently improving!   MIA, ATL, PHI NYG, and KC have not been!
