Targets per game surprises

Alshon Jeffery is receiving the most targets per game over the last 4 weeks in the Bears offense… quite a change from a year ago when Marshall saw the vast majority of looks in the passing game.

Mike Wallace is nearly averaging 10 targets per game, but that is small consolation for fantasy owners, as he hasn’t been doing much with those looks.

Dez Bryant… wow, just 2 targets in the Cowboys last game against the Saints.  Expect those numbers to bounce back coming out of Dallas’ week 11 bye.

Who would have guessed that Keenan Allen (SD) is averaging as many targets per game as Marvin Jones (CIN) and David Nelson (NYJ)?  All 3 players are drawing, on average, 7.3 targets per game.
