Brandon Myers leads league in targets in Week 9, fantasy value up

Thearon W. Henderson

Brandon Myers saw plenty of looks from Carson Palmer against the Buccaneers. We break down the fantasy implications.

With the Raiders in constant comeback mode against the Buccaneers, Carson Palmer threw 61 passes on Sunday. He constantly looked for Brandon Myers, who racked up a league-high 13 targets in Week 9.

Myers finished with eight receptions for 59 yards and two touchdowns, marking easily the best outing of his career.

Fantasy Impact: Myers first career touchdown came at the start of the fourth quarter, only to lead to a second several minutes later. Of course you shouldn't get used to numbers like this, since Palmer won't be throwing 61 times a week, but it is a positive sign to see Myers finally put points on the board.

With 50 targets on the season, Myers ranks second behind Denarius Moore. His value is going up, but he still needs to prove he can be consistent before you're set on starting him every week.
