Fantasy Football PPR Target Report, Week 12: Tight Ends

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Which tight ends saw the most targets in Week 12? Read all about it in the Week 12 PPR Target Report.

If the Dallas Cowboys continue to fall behind big in games going forward, tight end Jason Witten will be one of the primary beneficiaries of the Cowboys' attempts to come from behind. Witten again saw double digit targets on Thursday, and is a Top 5 tight end going forward.

Let's take a look at the tight ends who saw the most targets in Week 12:

Hitting the Bullseye

Jason Witten, DAL

Witten was targeted 15 times on Thursday, catching nine passes for 74 yards and no scores. For the season, he has caught 82 of his 114 targets for 710 yards, but just one touchdown. He is one of the top targeted tight ends, but does seem to be forgotten in the red zone this season.

Brandon Pettigrew, DET

Pettigrew also saw 15 targets on Thursday, catching eight passes for 74 yards and no touchdowns. He has caught 54 of his 91 targets this season, good for 513 yards and two touchdowns. I thought he could be more of a red zone target in the dangerous Detroit Lions offense this season, but that has yet to be the case.

Missing the Mark

Dwayne Allen, IND

After seeing 11 targets last week, Allen was targeted six times by quarterback Andrew Luck, catching three balls for 36 yards and no scores on Sunday. Allen was filling in for injured teammate Coby Fleener. Allen now has 34 receptions for 385 yards and two scores on the season.

Jimmy Graham, NO

Graham was targeted six times by quarterback Drew Brees against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, catching just four balls for 33 yards and no touchdowns. Graham has now caught 55 of his 83 targets for 595 yards and eight touchdowns this season, and continues to be a must start in all leagues.

Vernon Davis, SF

Davis appeared to be back in the good graces of the 49ers offense after being targeted eight times in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears. His expanded role was short lived, however, as Davis saw just one target Sunday from quarterback Colin Kaepernick, finishing the game with no receptions. He is probably droppable at this point, unless you play in leagues that require a tight end.
