If we learned anything from Robert Woods’ 12-catch, 150-yard performance on Thursday night, it must be patience. Watching your top picks struggle for your fantasy football teams can be one of the most frustrating things to do, especially when it’s happening to more than one player on your roster.
Woods was one of the big offenders, but he was far from alone as both DK Metcalf and Tyrek Hill had big recent games to assuage their owners. But not every slow starter is going to bounce back when you want it, so while you wait for Alan Robinson and Miles Sanders to wake up, maybe a few sleeper tight ends can help ease your pain and boost your weekly score. can.
Not often you stumble upon a strong, yet under-the-radar player who is expected to see massive amounts, but that could be exactly Washington’s Ricky Seals-Jones as he replaces the injured Logan Thomas. You might even be able to count on the fact that he’ll see 100 percent snaps and an average of five goals per game, as Thomas observed before the injury.
With role players like Curtis Samuels and Dimi Brown nursing injuries and potential rain in the forecast that could shorten a passing attack, Seals-Jones could complement Terry McLaurin, Washington’s widely needed move.
If you’re not going to let Urban Mayor Madness affect the way you see Jaguars this weekend, new acquisition Dan Arnold could also be your tight end in shiny armor. DJ Chark Jr.’s injury has allowed Lavisca Shenault Jr. to move into the role of outside receiver who, in turn, frees snaps from the slot as well as targets for the tight end.
Gadget players like Tavon Austin or Jamal Agnew aren’t going to move coverage or gain position on those shorter, lower passageways, but you put a big, wide-bodied, 6-foot-6, 240-pound Arnold in the middle Is. area, and you have some serious mismatches in coverage. He could also be a strong red-zone target against this soft Tennessee secondary.
It can be incredibly frustrating as you wait for high-end talent to finally arrive, but taking a few of these deep dives to help increase your weekly scoring can soften the blow and maybe give you some wins. can also be found. Last week, thanks to Dawson Knox, Dalton Schultz and Mo-Allie Cox, we saw a substantial increase in tight end scoring. If you can get through this week’s part with a micro-discount claim, you may finally be the one to dance the touchdown.
