This article is going to help you break down which players to target by going over the touches and targets of each team.

Cardinals Week 7 passing targets

David Johnson has become a true work horse back and a superstar right before our eyes. Johnson has to be on your radar each and every week moving forward no matter the match-up as he is going to get a ton of touches and is a match-up proof.

Falcons Week 7 passing targets

Even though Tevin Coleman had the better day fantasy wise, Devonta Freeman is the back you want moving forward. He continues to get the bulk of the carries and has a very favorable schedule for the rest of the season.

Ravens Week 7 passing targets

For as long as Steve Smith is out Mike Wallace will be one of your best values at wide receiver as he should continue to see double-digit targets each week.

Bills Week 7 passing targets

The Bills are a mess to predict on offense right now and I will be avoiding them until I know LeSean McCoy is 100% healthy.

Bears Week 7 passing game targets

I am ignoring the Bears this week as they played most of this week from behind and with a third string quarterback under center.

Targets

Bengals Week 7 passing targets

While Jeremy Hill had a huge game this week I am not reading too much into his performance as he was still out touched by Gio Bernard in a game that Hill should have gotten the bulk of the carriers. Gio is still my favorite back on this team and will be until Hill starts to out touch him.

Lions Week 7 passing targets

With back-to-back big weeks it is safe to say Golden Tate is back. With all the injuries to the Lions, Tate has really stepped up and gotten the ball on quick routes. I expect Tate to continue to see this kind of production moving forward even when the Lions start to get players back in the coming weeks.

Packers Week 7 passing targets

Davante Adams continues to have a huge bounce back year and looks to be a great WR3 for the rest of the season. Keep an eye out on Knile Davis this week as he will have a full week of practice under his belt and should get more touches after only being on the Packers for about two days before the start of this game.

Jaguars Week 7 passing targets

Looking over the Jaguars touches and targets over the past couple of weeks and it is clear that is a team that you want no part off right now. They are a mess on offense and you cannot predict who is going to get the majority of their targets or touches.

Chiefs Week 7 passing targets

It is clear to me that Jamaal Charles is not healthy right now and until further notice like I mentioned last week Spencer Ware needs to be on your radar in favorable match-ups.

I think it is safe to say that Jay Ajayi is not only the Dolphins go to back for the rest of the season but that he is also the real deal after another 200 yard rushing performance.

Saints Week 7 passing targets

Michael Thomas looks to have taken over as Drew Brees favorite target. He has lead the Saints in total targets over the past three weeks and has lead the team in red-zone targets throughout the season. While Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead will continue to have good games in the Saints pass happy offense, Thomas looks like your safest Saint wide out moving forward.
