Week 10: Snaps and Targets
Green led the NFL with 19 targets in Week 9, the third-highest total anyone has posted this season, and turned those into 11 catches for 128 yards. In the previous couple weeks, he'd produced big numbers even with a merely solid number of targets. But when his targets venture into the elite range, which they have on occasion, he's that much better.
Cotchery led the Steelers with seven catches and three receiving touchdowns last week, and his 96 receiving yards were two shy of a team high. But I'm not convinced he's any different than the player who combined for 80 receiving yards and no touchdowns in the previous two weeks. Even while posting his impressive numbers against the Patriots, Cotchery still ranked fourth on the Steelers in catches. That's a sign this production is not sustainable.
