There will be a lot of tight ends not playing this upcoming week, but most of them will not be missed by fantasy football owners. While another four teams will be off during Week 8, the only tight end fantasy footballers will need a replacement for is Atlanta’s Austin Hooper, and he has only become... Read More

Fantasy football owners are going to be hurting during Week 7. There will be no Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks or Oakland Raiders to use in fantasy lineups this week since the four teams are on bye. Fantasy owners will need to find replacements for Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown,... Read More

There will be a lot of familiar tight ends missing this week. Fantasy football owners will be without Jimmy Graham, Jared Cook, Vance McDonald and Jesse James for Week 7 due to four teams being in bye, so waiver wires will be seriously scoured in leagues for available tight ends. The problem is that there... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is no Dan Marino, but Brock Osweiler might be the second coming after torching the Chicago Bears for 380 yards and three touchdown tosses. Tight end Nick O’Leary caught four passes for 49 yards and a score in his first game with the... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Denver’s pass offense still revolves around its receivers, but tight end Jeff Heuerman has been targeted 17 times over the past three games in the wake of Jake Butt’s torn ACL. Heuerman has a big body that can be valuable in the red zone when... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Arizona Cardinals tight end Ricky Seals-Jones has been a mild disappointment this season as his 15 receptions for 192 yards and a touchdown have done no fantasy favors for those who own him. The good news is that in his three of his past... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  I love old folks. I love my stepgrandmother. She is 92 years young and does not look a day over 70, and she has more sense and vigor than many of my much-younger friends. Maybe this is why I have an affinity for Washington... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  We were wrong in thinking that Tyler Kroft was going to overtake C.J. Uzomah as Cincinnati’s top tight end in the aftermath of Tyler Eifert’s season-ending injury. Silly me not knowing Kroft would break his foot and Uzomah would put blocking on the back burner to try and... Read More

The byes are here, but so are the booms and busts! Drew Brees will not be breaking any more records this week as he and his New Orleans Saints are on bye, along with Matthew Stafford and his Detroit Lions. So do not look for Tre’Quam Smith or Kerryon Johnson to make the columns as... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 57% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  You never know this season which pass catcher Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will make his top target. One week it is Pro Bowler Julio Jones. The next week it is talented rookie Calvin Ridley. Then Ryan will spend a game dumping countless passes off to his running backs.... Read More

Normally, this week is probably not the week that millions of fantasy football players would be scouring their league waiver wires for tight ends. The Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints are the only two teams on bye, and neither have a tight end fantasy owners will miss much. But as you are probably aware,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you thought Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was closer to retirement than the end zone entering the 2018 campaign, you have probably been convinced otherwise by now. Gates is not his same self from his prime when he gave fantasy owners 900... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst finally made his debut after missing the first four games with a foot injury. He only had one catch for seven yards and still has to leapfrog Maxx Williams and Mark Andrews on the depth chart. However, if you have time to... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  Seattle Seahakws tight ends have been going down faster and harder than Lindsey Vonn goes down a ski slope. Nick Vannett is the defacto starter for now with Will Dissly out for the season. Vannett caught four passes for 43 yards this past weekend, but just... Read More

I am entering Week 5 with a lot of confidence and motivation coming on the heels of my Week 4 predictions. I was right about almost everything in my last column! Chris Hogan, Quincy Enunwa and Javorius Allen were non-factors, while Sterling Shepard and Tyler Eifert (before his catastrophic ankle injury) had great games. Only... Read More

Finding a tight end on waiver wire in your fantasy football league has gotten a little more important this week. Chicago’s Trey Burton and Tampa Bay’s O.J. Howard are on bye, and Cincinnati’s Tyler Eifert is out for the season after catastrophically breaking his ankle. Those are three pretty big names at the tight end... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 42% of Leagues ANALYSIS:  The most valuable tight end fantasy-wise on the Steelers changes back and forth more often than my wife changes the décor in our living room. Right now it seems that Vance McDonald has an edge on Jesse James after his second straight solid outing. After... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After starting the season with two reception-less games, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate has now caught touchdown tosses in back-to-back weeks. O.J. Howard might be Tampa Bay’s top tight end, but Brate is showing he has value, too, and could have... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: You have to feel for Tyler Eifert. He has arguably been the unluckiest tight end in the NFL over the past four years due to the major injuries he has suffered, with his latest being the worst of them all. You should not... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 8% of Leagues ANALYSIS: With Evan Engram week-to-week with a knee injury, New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison is now Eli Manning’s second-best safety valve behind rookie tailback Saquon Barkley. Ellison caught three passes for 29 yards this past week after having 39 yards and a touchdown the week before.... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets tight end Jordan Leggett now appears to be Sam Darnold’s favorite tight end after the rookie quarterback found Leggett in the back of the end zone against Jacksonville. Chris Herndon appeared to have been a good option, but Leggett now appears to... Read More

Week 3 of the NFL season was a crazy train even Ozzy Osbourne could not have kept on the tracks. Minnesota lost to Buffalo, Jacksonville lost to Tennessee, New England lost to Detroit, and the Cleveland Browns won their first game since the iPhone X came out! The NFL looks like it is going to... Read More

If you are a Jordan Reed owner, you probably need a tight end this week. Washington is one of the first two teams (along with Carolina) on bye this season, so the Reed owners out there are going to have to scour their league’s waiver wire this week for a replacement if they chose not... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Arizona Cardinals tight end Ricky Seals-Jones had been Seals-subpar (seven catches for 36 yards) during the first two weeks when quarterback Sam Bradford could not hit the broad side of a continent with his passes. Seals-Jones finally got on the scoreboard this past Sunday when... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison is a block-first tight end who was only drafted in NFC East-only fantasy leagues before the season. With Evan Engram going down with a possibly semi-serious knee injury, though, Ellison is the next man up for the Giants... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Rams head honcho and offensive mastermind Sean McVay has been about as interested in getting his tight ends involved in the offense as President Trump has been interested in making amends with Hilary Clinton. That said, tight end Tyler Higbee had two receptions... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The 38-year-old Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates looked like he was 100 years old during the first two games while getting back in football shape after missing training camp, yet he must have taken a swig from the Fountain of Youth... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The revolving door at tight end for Baltimore the past couple seasons has made fantasy owners dizzy. Maxx Williams, Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gillmore and Dennis Pitta have all done disservices to fantasy players in one way or another. So it is refreshing to have Mark... Read More

Forget about the busts and booms everyone in fantasy football knows about! What about those busts and booms flying under the radar? There are a plethora of players who fit the under-the-radar profile this week. It is still early enough in the season where certain players are not getting the pub (negatively or positively) they...

Two weeks down, and 15 weeks to go for fantasy football owners to find their starting tight end. The Greg Olsen and Delanie Walker owners who were unable to fill their tight end voids last week have another opportunity to this week. If you are in the market for a new tight end for your...
