WR Super Chart: Week 9 (Fantasy Football)

Nov 1, 2018

Welcome to the Week 9 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 9.

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

  • Marvin Jones and Sammy Watkins led all WRs with 30.7 fantasy points in PPR formats in Week 8. However, both players are still ranked outside of the top 30 at the halfway mark of the season.
  • Adam Thielen posted his eighth straight 100-yard game. Odell Beckham has the second most with five.
  • San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne led all WRs with a 36 percent target share in Week 8. He hauled in seven receptions on 10 targets and could be a deep waiver wire sleeper, as he is suddenly emerging as one of C.J. Beathard’s favorite targets.
  • Week 8 could end up being the turning point to Larry Fitzgerald’s season. The veteran wide receiver recorded 100 yards receiving for the first time this season while being targeted on 30 percent of Josh Rosen’s pass attempts.
  • Only three receivers have compiled 90 or more targets so far this season: Thielen (96), Jarvis Landry (94), and Beckham (91).
  • Michael Thomas remains head and shoulders above his competition with a 91 percent catch rate. His production has slowed a little bit, but his chemistry with Drew Brees is clearly still intact.
