WR Super Chart: Week 7 (Fantasy Football)

Oct 18, 2018

Welcome to the Week 7 Fantasy Football Super Chart series of the 2018 NFL season, covering the wide receiver position. The Super Chart is an all-in-one spreadsheet that breaks down significant stats, trends, and numbers from the previous week and year-to-date. The main purpose of the Super Chart is to help you determine your starting lineup, waiver wire pickups, and much more by using various forms of stat-driven data. Tracking critical information such as target shares, catch rates, fantasy points per target, and weekly matchups can help you identify breakout candidates by noticing trends before other managers in your league.

Please take a moment to review each category and what it means. If you are already familiar with all of the terms and categories, feel free to skip ahead to view the Super Chart for Week 7.

Weekly Fantasy Points/Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG)
The first stat that we track is simple, yet important. The Super Chart is sorted by Fantasy Points Per Game, but also includes fantasy point totals from the previous week.

Weekly Targets/Weekly Target %
A closer look at the total number of targets for every fantasy-relevant receiver, as well as the total percentage of targets that player accounted for.

YTD Targets/YTD Targets %
We not only track weekly target percentages but also year-to-date targets. This will help determine consistency and potential breakout candidates.

Weekly/YTD Receptions
PPR formats have taken over the fantasy football landscape and tracking receptions is an important part of finding consistent success. There are plenty of underrated fantasy receivers that lack upside but can net you a safe eight to 10 points when you need it.

YTD Catch Rate
Year-to-date catch rate is the percentage of targets that were caught.

Next Week Opponent
This is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a look ahead to the upcoming matchup with the opposition’s rank against WRs in fantasy. The 32nd ranked fantasy defense is a favorable matchup, while the 1st ranked defense is the most difficult.

# of 100 Yard Games
Some leagues offer bonus points at 100 yards receiving, and it’s also a great way to track a receiver’s consistency.

Fantasy Points Per Target
Lastly, fantasy points per target can help you identify explosive players who can put up big numbers with more opportunity.

The Super Chart is packed with so much information that we can only fit so much into the article. To view the Super Chart in its entirety, please click here.

Quick Hits

  • After scoring 35.2 FPs on Monday night, Davante Adams leapfrogged four players to the number two overall spot in Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG) among all WRs.
  • Adam Thielen is number one in FPPG, YTD Targets, Target Share, Receptions, and 100-Yard Games. He’s the clear-cut WR1 in fantasy at the moment.
  • Cole Beasley has emerged as the Dallas Cowboys number one receiver after being targeted on 41 percent of Dallas’ pass attempts in Week 6, which was the second highest percentage behind Thielen, of course.
  • Only four players have a target share of 30 percent or higher so far this season: Thielen, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham, and Corey Davis.
  • Michael Thomas leads the way with a 94 percent catch rate. However, keep an eye on Arizona rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk. Kirk ranks second in that department (min. 20 targets) with a catch rate of 81 percent.
  • Doug Baldwin ranks tied for 95th in FPPG with 6.3, despite having his best outing of the season in Week 6. He is a fantastic buy-low option as we get closer to the second half of the NFL season.
