Welcome to the 2012 National Football Post Target Report. The purpose of the following chart is to provide a comprehensive breakdown of the most targeted pass-catchers from the 2011 NFL season.
A target consists of a pass is thrown to a player, whether completed or not. For example, if Drew Brees overthrows Marques Colston on a deep bomb down the right side of the field, that is considered a target even though the pass was not completed.
YPR: Yards per reception
Rec/Gm: Receptions per game
25+: Receptions of 25 or more yards
YAC: Yards after catch
YAC Avg: Average gained after reception
