Week 11 is wrapped and you’re here for the Weekly Target Report. As usual, let’s start by checking in on the season target leaders. Keenan Allen’s big performance this week (see below) propelled him past Stefon Diggs for the season lead with 112 targets. They’re currently the only two players in the NFL with triple-digit targets. Allen (11.2) also overtook Davante Adams (11.1) in targets/game.

The most targeted tight ends in the NFL faced off Sunday night and Travis Kelce maintained his slight target lead over Darren Waller. The two are in a target tier of their own. Kelce is the only tight end over 90 targets, Waller is the only over 80, and no other tight end is over 70.

Despite the down performance this week (see below), Alvin Kamara is still easily the most-targeted running back in the league. His 81 targets are 15 more than current runner-up J.D. McKissic. Beyond those two, no other running back has surpassed 60 targets.

Now onto the most intriguing target performances of Week 11.

Keenan Allen – 19 targets, 16 rec

As mentioned in the introduction, Keenan Allen is the current target king of the 2020 season and it comes on the back of his second 19-target outing of the season, which translated to a career-high 16 receptions. What’s more impressive is that he’s taken over the lead even though he saw just two targets in Week 5 before leaving the game after just 12 snaps. If you remove that game he jumps up to a ridiculous 12.2 targets/game.

Diontae Johnson – 16 targets, 12 rec

Johnson has now seen double-digit targets in six of his nine games played this season, including four of his last five. Over that five-game span, he’s averaged 11 targets/game and seen a healthy 25% target share with the pass-happy Steelers. He’s played 144 fewer snaps this season than teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster but has seen five more targets than his fellow wideout. It’s clear that Johnson has become to top target in Pittsburgh.

Tyreek Hill – 14 targets, 11 rec 

Hill has been a target monster the past two weeks with a league-high 32 targets. He’s currently the WR2 in fantasy football in both total points and points/game, trailing only Davante Adams in both categories. He’s on pace for 138 targets, one more than his career-high, but still has four fewer targets on the season than his tight end teammate Travis Kelce.

Michael Thomas – 12 targets, 9 rec

Welcome back to Michael Thomas, all it took was *checks notes* Taysom Hill replacing Drew Brees at quarterback? With Hill at the helm, a healthy Thomas saw his most targets since Week 16 of the 2019 season. His 12 targets accounted for an outrageous 52% of Hill’s pass attempts in the game. If their connection stays strong Thomas managers may finally get consistent fantasy production out of last season’s WR1.

Russell Gage – 12 targets, 7 rec

Gage matched his season-high with 12 targets, which he initially set all the way back in Week 1. His targets have been trending up lately; over the last three weeks, he’s seen 3, 6, and now 12 targets. With Julio Jones’s hamstring health once again in question, Gage is a candidate to see an increased target share again.

Larry Fitzgerald – 10 targets, 8 rec

It used to be a regular occurrence, but Thursday night’s Week 11 game against Seattle marked Fitzgerald’s first double-digit target game since Week 2 of 2019, which feels like about a decade ago. While he isn’t the fantasy stud he used to be, he’s quietly averaging a respectable 6.5 targets/game over Arizona’s last six games. 

James White – 9 targets, 6 rec

White’s nine targets in Week 11 tied his season-high that he set back in Week 6. Those two weeks also just so happen to be the only weeks this season he’s been a top-20 fantasy running back. He also saw the field for a season-high 57% of the Patriots offensive snaps, corresponding to Rex Burkhead’s exit with what could be a season-ending knee injury. White looks to be the lone pass-catching back for New England against Arizona in Week 12.

J.D. McKissic – 4 targets, 3 rec

McKissic finally came back down to Earth after combining for 29 targets the previous two weeks. He still out-targeted fellow running back Antonio Gibson and saw a decent 16% target share but Washington simply didn’t need to pass the ball much once the Bengals lost Joe Burrow.

Jarvis Landry – 2 targets, 2 rec

Remember when Jarvis Landry was an absolute target hog? He averaged 142.8 targets/season over his first six seasons; he’s currently on pace for 91 this season in Cleveland’s offense. But wait, it gets worse. Landry has never missed a game in his six-plus year professional career and Week 11 was the first time since Week 1 of 2014, his first career game, that he saw fewer than three targets in a game.

Alvin Kamara – 1 target, 0 rec

After last week Kamara was on pace to tie Christian McCaffrey’s single-season running back record of 142 targets. One game into the Taysom Hill experience and he’s now on pace for “only” 130 on the season. It’s just one game, but it’s understandable if Kamara fantasy managers are slightly concerned, especially considering it was the first game of his career that he was held without a single reception.
