Week 8: Snaps and Targets

We look at who played last week, how often and how many passes came their way Profiled players include Matt Forte, LeSean McCoy, Jacquizz Rodgers, Dwayne Bowe, and Harry Douglas.

Gronkowski returned with a bang, catching eight passes for 114 yards. His 17 targets were the single-game high for a tight end this season and tied for fifth-most at any position. The narrative suggested Gronkowski would emerge as Tom Brady's top target, and the numbers support it. Expect big things the rest of the season.

Reed caught nine passes on nine targets last week for 134 yards. Just three players have caught every pass thrown their way for more yardage in a game this season – Harry Douglas, Donnie Avery and Antonio Gates. Reed's output has steadily increased the last few weeks, so this seems promising, especially considering Reed's positive reputation as a pass catcher.
