Adam Thielen, Odell Beckham, and Zach Ertz have had different seasons on many levels. Theilen has been getting the most attention after having seven-straight games of 100 or more receiving yards to start the season.
Ertz has quietly put together the most productive seven-game start for any tight end in NFL history without many people noticing while Odell Beckham has been productive, despite some folks thinking he's had a down year with the lack of touchdowns thus far.
While these players do have perceived differences, they also have one very important thing in common -- those three players are the only ones who have been targeted at least nine times in every game this season.
There are only three players witha t least 9 targets every week this year. Only one of those players (Odell Beckham Jr.) is on the main DFS slate this week.— PFF Fantasy Football (@PFF_Fantasy) October 27, 2018

Fantasy football is all about opportunity, especially when it comes to pass catchers. While each of these offenses has underperformed, and gone through their fair share of untimely struggles, trying to get the ball to these players has remained a constant focal point.
