Target Analysis

Target Report Updated: Tuesday, December 28, 2010 @ 10:15am eastern.

The target analysis is here to educate our readers on which NFL pass-catchers around the league benefit the most from an abundance of opportunities. Targets are the number of times a pass is thrown at a player. For example, if Peyton Manning overthrows Reggie Wayne on a deep bomb down the field, that is considered a target even though the pass was not completed.

The following is a list of the 100 most targeted pass-catchers (wide receivers, tight ends, running backs) following the conclusion of Week 16 in the NFL.

Targets: Total number of passes thrown at the receiver.

Rec: Receptions
