Opportunity Scores for WRs & TEs Through Week 5

October 12, 2022

This past week there was a lot of consistency on the left side of the graph and a bit of movement on the right side, both for WRs and TEs. As we progress forward with this article and analysis I am going to be posting my previous weeks targets and any new players I feel like are worth watching. We are still seeing players get opportunities that weren’t there at the start of the year so keeping up on this and building your hypothetical bench and looking at players to trade for is crucial to your season’s success.

Alright let’s review last week and see if anyone is falling off the list.

Week 5 players we were watching:

Brandon Aiyuksolid yardage on only four targets
Zay Jonessaw 8 targets but the Jaguars offense just couldn’t get it together in this one, honestly very surprising
Josh Reynoldshad a great game with 10 targets and was just shy of 100 receiving yards
Adam Thielenpretty disappointing game considering everyone around him got a touchdown and he only saw four targets
Mack Hollinsfour targets and zero stats to show for it, he did get an endzone target so there’s hope yet
Donovan Peoples-Jonesdecent week for DPJ, he had 50 yards on 7 targets
Juwan Johnsonin a game setup for him to have a solid role he did nothing, maybe this changes when Winston is back

Players I’m watching in Week 6:

Here’s the players I’m watching/interested in from last week:
• Brandon Aiyuk
• Zay Jones
• Josh Reynolds
• Adam Thielen
• Juwan Johnson – only if Winston is back

Here’s the players I’m watching/interested in Week 6:
• DK Metcalf – I still feel like he has managers spooked from his bad start, I’d be checking his trade cost in every league
• Rondale Moore – he’s going to be integrated back into this offense, this is the week we could see him post solid numbers
• Jakobi Meyers – we honestly be too late on Meyers, he’s quietly posted great numbers when on the field, I’d be looking to acquire him as the only viable option in the New England passing game.
• Daniel Bellinger – his target depth is only going to get better and I think you can do a lot worse
• Cade Otton – welcome to the club, if he’s the starting TE on the Bucs and he has Brady’s trust he’s more valuable than everyone else on the end of the graph
