Fantasy Football PPR Target Report, Week 10: Running Backs

Thearon W. Henderson

Check out which running backs were targeted the most in the Week 10 PPR Target Report.

Last season, there were three running backs with over 600 receiving yards. This season, we may not see one running back go over that mark. Right now the running backs with the most receiving yards are as follows:

Marcel Reece, OAK: 33 receptions for 328 yards

Darren Sproles, NO: 39 receptions for 323 yards

Joique Bell, DET: 30 receptions for 307 yards

Ronnie Brown, SD: 35 receptions for 298 yards

C.J. Spiller, BUF: 28 receptions for 297 yards

This is just another sign that more and more teams are using their wide receivers and tight ends in their aerial attacks, and saving their running backs for what most of them do best, which is running the ball.

Let's take a look at the running backs who were targeted the most in Week 10:

Hitting the Bullseye

Joique Bell, DET

With the Detroit Lions down a few scores on Sunday, Bell was more active in the offense out of the backfield. He was targeted eight times by quarterback Matt Stafford, catching seven passes for 44 yards and no touchdowns. Bell has 14 receptions for 113 yards over his last three games.

Marcel Reece, OAK

Reece should continue to get plenty of targets with the Oakland Raiders defense unable to stop anyone at the moment. Reece caught seven of his nine targets for 56 yards and no scores in the Raiders' 55-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Over his last two games, he has 15 receptions for 151 yards, so he has some value in flex leagues.

Missing the Target

Chris Johnson, TEN

When you saw the Tennessee Titans score 34 points, you may have thought that quarterback Jake Locker threw the ball around a bit, but that was not the case. Johnson was targeted just two times on Sunday, catching one pass for eight yards. Fortunately for fantasy owners, Johnson has returned to his old form and has rushed for over 100 yards and a touchdown three times in his last four games.
