KFFL Target Data

Bull's eye

The New Orleans Saints trampled the Dallas Cowboys. Not surprising, but the distribution of attention reflects potential trends to come. It all stems from Jimmy Graham, of course. Though you can't bench Graham in 99 percent of leagues, his plantar fasciitis will pester him the rest of the way; he played only 33 of the club's 83 offensive snaps.

New Orleans Saints RB Darren Sproles
Sproles back in business

Graham's careful handling should mean Darren Sproles sustains something close to the 12-utilization workload from Week 10. Marques Colston's knee looked healthy in his eight-target effort, meaning Kenny Stills (four) and Lance Moore (two) owners hope Sean Payton and company continue to hold back Graham.

Mark Ingram will be a hot pickup, but most of his stellar work came as the Saints were pulling away against a heavily depleted front seven. He's beaten out Khiry Robinson for the third RB spot, which could mean a more entrenched goal-line presence. However, Thomas and Sproles are no strangers to that gig, and Ingram's weekly potential there will depend on how much they need to use their top two late in games.

Hot-hand sitch with Bernard Pierce would limit ceiling.

WW: With Mike James (fractured ankle) on the shelf, Bobby Rainey and Brian Leonard will form a committee for the already Doug Martin-less Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both looked decent Monday night against a lowly Miami Dolphins run D. Leonard had 23 utilizations Monday night, but that probably was a result of him being ready as next man up. The 5-foot-8 but hard-running Rainey showed some skills later in the game and has a more complete feel to him. Leonard is your preferred target, but don't be surprised, if they don't bring in someone else, in Rainey putting a big dent in Leonard's opps.
