Advanced Targets - Week 8 Wrap
Advanced 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.
Each week I like to focus on slightly different elements in the Advanced Targets portfolio. After a weekend which featured many of the best and most thrilling fantasy performances of the year, we should start with the top performers from an efficiency perspective. Martavis Bryant (3.95 yprr) and Donte Moncrief (3.42) were both mentioned a week ago as players with exciting peripherals. These two rookies were the top size/speed prospects from the 2014 class but each fell in the draft due to a sizable production red flag (Bryant’s was overall age-adjusted production while Moncrief impressed early before authoring a final year swoon). They’re quickly putting those concerns to rest as they find themselves in tremendous fantasy situations at the pro level. It will certainly help the Indianapolis passing attack if Reggie Wayne’s shoulder injury provides an excuse for expanding Moncrief’s role at the veteran’s expense.
