The data below shows the number of targets to each position by team, helping us see which teams are better at targeting specific positions.
You can check out my 2020 Projected Target Share by Player here.
The chart above shows the teams who threw the most targets to the WR position in 2019.
The charts below show the Percent of Total Targets to the WR position for each team and a WR Variance of Total Team Targets vs. WR Targets.
I’m not quite sure what to make of these charts for the WR position just yet. Obviously we want to target WRs who are on teams that frequently target the WR position like the Falcons, Rams, Bengals, Bucs and Cardinals. Perhaps the data collected here suggests which teams are most likely to carry at least 2 quality WR options for fantasy.
In the WR Variance chart, the teams on the far lower left are all low volume passing offenses, but have the ability to feature their star WRs in Marquise Brown, AJ Brown, Adam Thielen, Deebo Samuel and Terry McLaurin. Each of these WRs faces little competition behind them so they all have interesting ceilings for 2020.
The teams toward the top right of the WR Variance chart have to potential to carry multiple useful WRs for fantasy and include duos of Julio/Ridley, Kupp/Woods, Green/Boyd, Evans/Godwin, and Cooper/Gallup. I would recommend targeting all 10 of these WRs and typically prefer the one with the lower ADP of two.
To recap, this final chart below shows the RB, WR & TE positions by target %.
