Fantasy Football: Final 2010 Targets and Touches

I'd love to tell you not to worry, that the beer will be flowing, Cheetos-fingers will be glowing, Lindsay Lohan will still be ho-ing, and that there will be NFL football come September.

But I can't.

I simply don't trust the owners' and players' ability to play nice, much less be able to let go of their narcissistic pride in order to get on with it and give the FANS what they deserve: a fair deal (and a 2011 fantasy football season, of course).

That said, assuming Roger Goodell and the owners pull their collective heads out of their lying, greedy, conniving, slippery rich asses and get that deal done, you'll want to be ready for your fantasy draft.

One way of doing that is to know which guys are going to have the ball in their hands the most because really, the only way your guy can get fantasy points for you is if they have the pigskin enough to do so.  This is where the final 2010 targets and touches come into play.

Arian Foster had the most touches for running backs in 2010 and (not so) coincidentally, ended up with the most fantasy points.  Roddy White had the most targets for wide receivers and ended up first in receptions, second in receiving yards and third in fantasy points.  Jason Witten was first in tight end targets and yup, you guessed it, came in with the most fantasy points as well.

Did I mention that targets and touches were important?
