In the table below you can find how many fantasy points (PPR) qualifying wide receivers scored on a per target basis.

While looking at this data is fun, keep in mind it is not 100 percent predictive of future success and will skew a little towards receivers with lofty touchdown totals.

To qualify, a receiver must have seen at least 65 targets during the 2015 season. The average points per target scored among the entire sample of 67 receivers was 1.73 points per target. Receivers that saw 100 or more targets averaged 1.80 points per target; while pass catchers that drew 130-plus targets averaged 1.78 PPR points per target.
