Advanced Targets – Week 11 Wrap


Randall CobbAdvanced Targets goes behind the scenes and provides snap and pass route splits in addition to target numbers. Yards per route (YPRR), targets per snap (TA/SN), targets per route (TA/PR), and pass routes per snap (PR/SN) are exclusive PFF metrics that will help inform your start/sit, waiver wire, and trade decisions in a way no other service can.

The two most efficient players in Week 11 were Mike Evans and A.J. Green. Evans did his damage – 209 yards and 2 touchdowns – on only 27 routes. A lot can happen between now and the end of their rookie contracts, but if the 2014 Draft were held today, Evans would be the clear choice as the top receiver. The “unique talent” argument in favor of players like Sammy Watkins and Odell Beckham is based primarily in aesthetics or whimsy, not results, or perhaps more importantly, the likelihood of future results.

Player Routes TD TD/Route
Evans 296 7 0.024
Benjamin 389 8 0.021
Watkins 392 5 0.013
Beckham 243 3 0.012

Evans and his counterpart in Carolina are doing exactly what their height/weight profiles suggest.
