We all now how good of a season Rob Gronkowski ($8,000) is having, but maybe we are over-looking another tight end. Check this out:
Those numbers are essentially identical between these two Tight Ends. Both had had their BYE week and still lead the league in TE targets. Both have a bunch of catches and the most touchdowns. The player on bottom is Rob Gronkowski. The player on top is Greg Olsen ($6,500). The point is that Olsen is having a very similar year to Gronk and can save you $1,500 less. He’s also in a better matchup against GB who’s allowed the 8th most points to opposing TEs this season.
If you’re looking for a valuable cash game player, look no further than Delanie Walker ($4,200). He has returned at least 3x value in all but one game this season and has succeeded under multiple QBs. He’s the top target for whoever will start at QB this week for the Titans and he will face the 27th ranked defense in New Orleans.
I am begging…BEGGING for Austin Seferian-Jenkins ($2,800) to suit up this week. He’s been practicing last week and this week and this might be the first time we see him in action since Week 2. He has so much upside (31 points in Week 1) and would be a steal at only $2,800. No team has given up more points to opposing TEs than the Giants. The icing on the cake would be for ASJ to suit up and Vincent Jackson to miss another game (currently questionable) as that would thrust ASJ into the #2 target in this offense.
A very think position, as usual, for the tight ends. Commentary based on DraftKings strategy and scoring.
