Jahnke: 32 Fantasy Football Stats To Know

NFL players typically find fantasy success by a combination of two things happening: 1. They get the opportunity to succeed, and 2. They make the most of those opportunities. It sounds simple, but we're here for the fantasy stats, not to roster talent or potential. We need our players to get work and score points.

So these are a couple of the things I focus on while preparing my weekly fantasy football rankings. Here are 32 interesting statistics — one for each NFL team — I found while preparing my fantasy rankings for Week 2.

Buffalo Bills Rookie Zack Moss had eight red zone carries and two red zone targets. Those were both the third-most for running backs. He only converted one of those into touchdowns this week but should continue seeing plenty of touchdown opportunities.

Miami Dolphins Wide receiver Preston Williams led the team with six targets. In the nine games he’s been healthy in his NFL career, he has 13 more targets than DeVante Parker and more than double the targets of any other Dolphins player.
