Without a doubt, receivers are having a bigger impact than ever in fantasy football. With rules favoring the passing game, some of the biggest numbers are coming from wide outs. With so many running backs being handled by committee, it’s almost a necessity to fill your flex position with a receiver. Good luck to those in the playoffs and those making a final push.
A week ago, 13 wide receivers were targeted in double digits and we took note. Week 12 saw an amazing 18 reach the milestone. What does this mean? We’re not sure, but it certainly strengthens the belief that the passing game should be strongly considered for the flex position. The usual suspects populate the big time targets but some newcomers as well!
