Another week, another Thursday night snoozer. What’s the deal with this? I suppose the schedule-makers had no idea that Cam Newton was going to be a disappointment through the first half of the season or that Doug Martin was going to go down with a torn labrum in his shoulder or that Josh Freeman was going to stink it up so badly that even Tampa Bay didn’t want him, but man, these games have not been kind to the casual fan watching and they certainly haven’t been kind to the fantasy football world either. In fact, I’ve had people emailing me in search of a suggested replacement for their guy who does play in a Thursday night game. It’s apparently gotten that bad.
At the start of the season there was tremendous love for Jimmy Graham as he rarely fell out of the top-20 in any draft. After that there were a handful of vets – guys like Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, Vernon Davis and Rob Gronkowski – that many folks targeted at the tight end position. After that it was a rough free for all amongst proven but boring guys and youngster with a lot of talent as people often tried to fill the tight end position in the middle rounds. Through six weeks of the NFL season who were we right on at tight end and who did we miss on? I'll discuss that plus I'll throw out some observations from Week 6 as I take a look around the tight end position.
ADP Numbers – Were We Right?
Here are some ADP numbers from The National Fantasy Football Championship (12 team, PPR setup --- 99 drafts surveyed). How have the players performed relative to their draft day cost?
It's Week 6, and things are starting to crystallize in the world of fantasy football. Guys like Vick and Daniels can't stay healthy, what a shock. Guys like Brees and Romo continue to get it done, what a shock. Youngsters like Lacy and Cameron are establishing themselves as weekly starters. Which fellas on the gridiron have the best matchups for Week 6? So glad you asked as we've got a lot of information to share with you in your quest to emerge with the “W” in the sixth week of the NFL season.
It's already the third week of the NFL season. If you're 2-0 you feel great. If you're 1-1 you feel hopeful. If you're 0-2 your ready to blow your entire team up (I know some of you are staying the course even if the first two weeks didn't turn out well, but far more of you are cursing the players on your team and giving them the evil eye). Regardless of the spot you are in, here are some thoughts on players heading into Week 3. Which guys should you trust to as starters this week to keep the good times rolling or to turn around a rough start? Here are some thoughts.
