The following is a list of the Week 13 leaders in looks and touches. It defines those running backs and receivers who received the most attention this past weekend.

Touches is defined as the number of times a running back carried or caught the football.
Looks is defined as the number of times a player was the intended target of a pass.

Touches
Le'Ron McClain received the lion's share of the touches for Baltimore for the second consecutive week, turning a season high 25 carries into 86 yards (no catches). McClain has averaged 87 yards on 21.5 carries over the past two weeks (no catches); Ray Rice, the Ravens' second-most utilized back over the past two weeks, has averaged 52 yards (24 rushing, 28 receiving) on 13 touches (9 carries, 4 catches).

Peyton Hillis has emerged in the Broncos' backfield and … wait for it … could remain the featured back moving forward. Over the past three weeks, the rookie has averaged 98 yards (82 rushing, 16 receiving) and 1.3 TD on 18 touches (16 carries, 2 catches).

The platoon watch notes when a team's RB2 is given at least half as many touches as the RB1, regardless of the reason. Platoon watch for Week 13 included: Baltimore (Le'Ron McClain 25, Ray Rice 15), Dallas (Tashard Choice 12, Marion Barber 11), Green Bay (Ryan Grant 12, Brandon Jackson 12), Indianapolis (Joseph Addai 16, Dominic Rhodes 13), Jacksonville (Maurice Jones-Drew 15, Fred Taylor 10), Miami (Ronnie Brown 15, Ricky Williams 12), New England (Kevin Faulk 13, Sammy Morris 11), New Orleans (Pierre Thomas 12, Reggie Bush 8), NY Giants (Brandon Jacobs 21, Derrick Ward 15), Oakland (Justin Fargas 19, Darren McFadden 10), Pittsburgh (Willie Parker 16, Mewelde Moore 14), Seattle (Julius Jones 11, Maurice Morris 9) and Tennessee (LenDale White 23, Chris Johnson 18).

Yards-per-touch leaders for Week 13 (minimum 10 touches) included: Kevin Faulk (9.31, 13 for 121), Thomas Jones (8.83, 18 for 159), and Marshawn Lynch (7.94, 17 for 135). The bottom three: Cedric Benson (1.5, 12 for 18), Kevin Smith (2.38, 13 for 31), and Clinton Portis (3.08, 12 for 37).

Looks
Look no further than teammate Davone Bess if you need some help making up for the loss of Greg Camarillo. Bess was targeted 10 times in Week 13 (6 catches, 84 yards) and has 19 targets in the past two games (11 catches, 171 yards).

If someone else in your league hasn't already done so, then you need to act on Domenik Hixon being the beneficiary in the Plaxico Burress fracas. Hixon was targeted nine times in Week 13, resulting in five catches for 71 yards, and he's totaled 17 looks, 11 catches and 128 receiving yards over the past two games.

Under-the-radar names among the league leaders in looks per game over the past three weeks: Josh Reed (8.5), Davone Bess (8), Deion Branch (8), Jabar Gaffney (7.3), Dane Looker (6.7), Devin Hester (6.7), Domenik Hixon (6.3) and Shaun McDonald (6).

Notable names not among the Week 13 looks leaders: Donnie Avery (3), Marion Barber (1), Chris Chambers (3), Dallas Clark (3), Warrick Dunn (1), Anthony Gonzalez (2), Marvin Harrison (3), Vincent Jackson (2), Michael Jenkins (3), Chris Johnson (2), Muhsin Muhammad (3), Bo Scaife (1), Vincent Shiancoe (3) and Brian Westbrook (3).
