Advanced Targets - Week 11
Welcome to a Thanksgiving version of Advanced Targets where Justin Blackmon owners are thankful for Chad Henne, Andre Johnson owners are thankful for the Texans’ defensive meltdown, and Calvin Johnson owners are thankful that Megatron is once again the transcendent player in the game.
We start with a look at the rest of the players who saw double digit targets in Week 11.

Andre1500 was the answer to his own eponymous question in Week 11. Ice Cold blazed to the top of the yards per route leaderboard with his career game. Now averaging 2.74 yards per route, he’s ahead of the efficiency pace from his 1500-plus yard seasons of 2008 and 2009. Receivers tend to fall off very quickly in their early 30s, but Johnson has a size/speed profile that matches the few who’ve had longer peaks.
