[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="702"] Part of the reason Reggie Wayne is so valuable to fantasy owners is that he leads the league in targets.[/caption]

Since targets have become a stat, fantasy junkies have fallen in love with it, including us! But just because your favorite WR gets thrown to 12 times each week, that does not guarantee anything! That is why we calculated their Catch % for you!

Darren McFadden's receiving numbers a bit skewed because of a 13 catch Week 1 performance.  He has just 5 receptions since in 3 games and just 201 rushing yards including a 113 yard Week 3!  BOO!
