On the topic of Gronk I think his injury history now takes him out of the discussion as a first round selection in coming years. He's moving towards late 2nd round early 3rd instead of late 1st early 2nd.

If healthy he gives a team an incredible position advantage but is it worth the risk? The Patriots no longer try to involve a non-Gronk TE game to game as a focus. Even though Bennet is more than capable.

You take the Redskins for example and Jordan Reed has his own injury risks but you know when he's healthy he's elite and if he's injured Vernon Davis is still going to be a target monster in the #1 TE role. That's not the case with the Pats.

Next year I'd rank Reed as TE1 but you have to handcuff with Davis. Followed by Olsen, Gronk, Walker and then the rest.

im not sure i put olsen that high. cam newton is somewhere between this season and last season; however, too much variability. especially with kelvin benjamin healthy since he will compete for redzone targets.

i think graham and eifert deserve to be in the discussion

New all-time low for me in fantasy sports. Missing the playoffs on season-long tiebreaker of total points for: 1241-1240.9. **** this.

That might be the first story that tops my game that I lost from Rex Grossman during the "they are what we thought they were" game taking my win going into Monday night to a loss.

I disagree on Graham and Eifert. Not consistent enough. Kelce is a guy I overlooked but again consistency. Olsen has been TE1 or close to it this entire season even with Benjamin there.

SHUT UP I HATE YOU



no, McKinnon has been very frustrating. And it annoys me how they use him too. They keep throwing him between the tackles which is obviously not his bread and butter instead of putting him in space on the outside.

But still, the fact that they think Asiata is worthy of a roster spot is mind bottling

Asiago is the king of vulture TDs, right? If so, he's technically, probably more roster-able than McKinnon in most fantasy formats...even though he's not NFL caliber...

Just for kicks...Luck vs Houston or Palmer vs. Miami in a QB friendly league that rewards big plays.

Yeah, looked like a rough week for a lot of teams out there...I might be the only team in my main league to get over 100 this week...I already have over 150 with Odell Beckham still to go...this will open up a 3-game lead between me and second place to close out the regular season...

Notably absent from my team: Jerrick MacKinnon...

Probably not. My roster isn't bad enough to have to rely on part-time and/or "situational" players...*hiss*
