Fantasy Football PPR Target Report, Week 10: Wide Receivers

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

Check out which wide receivers were targeted the most in the PPR Target Report for Week 10.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has received criticism for targeting wide receiver Victor Cruz a bit too much recently, so he switched things up in Week 10 by targeting Hakeem Nicks a season-high 14 times on Sunday. The increase in targets didn't help the struggling Manning as the Giants were blown out in Cincinnati, 31-6.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is certain to be the No. 1-ranked wide receiver heading into 2013 fantasy drafts after scoring a touchdown in his eighth straight game on Sunday. Green caught seven of his 10 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown, and now has 58 receptions on the year for 820 yards and nine touchdowns on 92 targets. Green is the no-doubt No.1 fantasy wide receiver going forward this season.

Now let's take a look at the wide receivers who received the most targets in Week 10:

Hitting the Bullseye

Calvin Johnson, DET

Johnson finally received a touchdown pass from Matt Stafford at quarterback on Sunday. Johnson had a huge game, catching 12 of his 13 targets for 207 yards and a score. He has now caught 60 of his 95 targets for 974 yards and two touchdowns on the year. He is on pace for over 100 receptions, and now has 100 or more yards receiving in four of his nine games this season. He remains a WR1 in all formats.

Roddy White, ATL

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan targeted Roddy White 13 times on Sunday, with White catching seven of those targets for 114 yards and no touchdowns. White now has 54 receptions for 823 yards and four touchdowns on 80 targets thus far in 2012. White remains a WR1 in all formats.

Danario Alexander, SD

Alexander caught five of his seven targets for 134 yards, which includes an 80-yard touchdown on the San Diego Chargers' first offensive play of the game. Alexander has played just three games this season, but has quickly established a rapport with quarterback Philip Rivers, catching eight of this ten targets for 195 yards and a score. Alexander will be a highly sought after wide receiver on the waiver wire this week.

Demaryius Thomas, DEN

Thomas caught nine of his 11 targets for 135 yards and no scores in the Denver Broncos' thrashing of the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. He has caught 54 of his 76 targets for 891 yards and four touchdowns thus far, and has five games of 100-plus yards receiving. Thomas is a borderline WR1, top-end WR2 in all leagues.

Cecil Shorts & Laurent Robinson, JAX

If the Jacksonville Jaguars continue to play like this, they will be playing from behind quite a bit, making both Shorts and Robinson potential must-starts in three wide receiver leagues going forward. Shorts and Robinson were targeted 13 times and 15 times respectively in Thursday night's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Missing the Target

Julio Jones, ATL

Jones was injured in Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, but did return to the game in the second half. He was targeted just five times, catching four of Matt Ryan's passes for 75 yards and no scores. Jones disappointed fantasy owners as he did not reach the end zone for a second straight game, and third time in his last four outings.
