RB Jamaal Charles: 16
11 receptions, 71 yards
Charles is second among all running backs with 16 targets, trailing only Matt Forte (17). Everything we thought about Charles -- him becoming a big role in the passing game -- is absolutely true. At this pace, Charles would have over 80 receptions this season. Most people predicted 55-60 receptions.
WR Dwayne Bowe: 14
8 receptions, 86 yards
As expected. Who else was going to be the top WR target? Bowe was the easy choice. He has caught a touchdown but he has yet to "take over" a game. Slow and steady.
WR Donnie Avery: 9
4 receptions, 49 yards
Avery is on pace for 32 receptions this season. The work of the No. 2 receiver was a thing before the season. My guess is that he has more than 32 receptions this season.
WR Dexter McCluster: 9
5 receptions, 57 yards
DMC is on pace for 40 receptions this season. That's the range I would've put him in before the season. I'd like to see a little more work out of him moving forward.
TE Anthony Fasano: 7
4 receptions, 34 yards
Before the season I would've put Fasano behind D-Bowe in receptions. Not the case through two games. In fact, tight ends have just eight of Alex Smith's 42 completions.
FB Anthony Sherman: 4
4 receptions, 44 yards
Eleven yards per reception for your fullback? Not bad. Sherman has been better than I thought he would.
TE Sean McGrath: 4
2 receptions, 31 yards
Now this is interesting. Travis Kelce has not been playing. And now Anthony Fasano is banged up. McGrath could be headed for a much bigger workload in Week 3.
WR Junior Hemingway: 2
2 receptions, 13 yards
One of those receptions is a touchdown. All he does is catch touchdowns!
RB Cyrus Gray: 2
1 reception, 6 yards
He saw some third down work in the first game.
RB Knile Davis: 1
1 reception, 5 yards
He stepped in when Jamaal went down in Week 1.
