Fantasy Football PPR Target Report, Week 12: Running Backs

Andy Lyons

Which running backs were targeted the most in Week 12? Read all about it in the Week 12 PPR Target Report.

Oakland Raiders running back Marcel Reece is becoming the top targeted running back in the NFL, and he has the Oakland defense to thank, as the Raiders are always playing from behind. Carson Palmer continues to give Reece plenty of looks, and Week 12 was no different.

Let's take a look at the running backs who received the most targets in Week 12:

Hitting the Bullseye

Marcel Reece, OAK

Reece was targeted eight times by quarterback Carson Palmer on Sunday, catching four balls for 29 yards and no scores. Reece added 75 yards on the ground, as well. He has been targeted 22 times over the last three games, catching 15 passes, but has yet to reach paydirt via the air. Reece is a flex option in most leagues, and an RB2 in deeper leagues.

Darren Sproles, NO

Sproles was the New Orleans Saints' most targeted receiver on Sunday. Drew Brees targeted him nine times, and Sproles caught seven balls for 65 yards and no touchdowns. Sproles had missed three straight games, so Brees appeared to want to get him as many looks as possible in the Saints passing game Sunday.

Missing the Mark

C.J. Spiller, BUF

Spiller was targeted just 3 times in the Buffalo Bills' aerial attack on Sunday, catching just one ball for minus-4 yards. He did rush for 107 yards on 14 carries, however, so he did provide value Sunday for fantasy owners. Spiller is in a timeshare in Buffalo's offense, so his targets may be limited going forward.
