Top Catches to Targets Post Week Six

Top Catches to Targets Post Week Six


Keenan Allen
The Chargers rookie has not been playing like one over the course of the last couple of games. He is getting open and Philip Rivers is firing the ball his way a bunch. Monday he was the possession receiver the Chargers needed as he caught nine of twelve passes.

Brandon Marshall
Marshall is still targeted in bunches by quarterback Jay Cutler. For Thursday’s game he had nine catches on eleven targets. Brandon appears to be using his size to shield defenders and catch the football in traffic. I’m waiting to see the big plays that we have become accustomed to seeing from Marshall. His hip may be slowing him down a bit but it’s not to the extent that you should be worried.

Josh Gordon
It’s hard to fathom a Cleveland Brown receiver being a top ten to fifteen wide receiver, but Gordon has been consistent enough to garner the fantasy attention. He has been a flat out steal for those that drafted him late pending his suspension or picked him up off waivers after his first breakout game. Sunday he had seven catches on nine targets.

Kyle Rudolph
Matt Cassel made Kyle Rudolph look like the dump off running back as outlets to Cassel’s throws Sunday. Getting the ball to Rudolph was about the only thing that Cassel did right Sunday. It’s obvious holding back a decision on quarterback won’t involve Cassel, only Freeman or Ponder. Rudolph will help Josh Freeman or Ponder.

Antonio Brown
The Steelers offense showed signs of recovery against the Bears. They just couldn’t fight back from a deficit to complete the comeback. Minnesota they also struggled with turnovers. Against the Jets they came to life

DeSean Jackson
Jackson made a statement that he wouldn’t have a problem against the Buccaneers secondary….and he didn’t. He caught all six of his targets while scoring two touchdowns. He continually beat the Buccaneers with crossing patterns that exposed the safeties both times.

Justin Blackmon
Blackmon put on a show against the Denver Broncos that will go unnoticed because of another bad loss by the Jaguars. In two games, Blackmon has jumped right up in the statistical category of season leaders at the receiver position. A remarkable achievement considering he was suspended the first four games. Fourteen catches on twenty targets for 190 yards will put you on the top twelve wide receiver fantasy map.

Others: Victor Cruz 4 catches/5 targets, Jordan Cameron 5 catches/6 targets, Kris Durham 8 catches/11 targets, Heath Miller 6 catches/7 targets, Tandon Doss 4 catches/6 targets, Andre Johnson 7 catches/8 targets, Aaron Dobson 6 catches/10 targets, Vernon Davis 8 catches/11 targets.
