The Holy Grail- Week 8 TEs

A picture of Washington Redskins TE Fred Davis...

Big things the rest of the season!

Teams on bye week: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Raiders, Jets, Buccaneers

MUST START

1 Graham @STL – Great matchup , great player , great stats  , move on.

2 Gates @KC – Word is the foot responded well which is great to hear since he came back and scored. Great matchup this week puts him at 2 on my list.

3 Witten @Phi – The Eagles had 2 weeks to prep for this game. Romo is going back to the rib support jacket and that means more conservative play calling from the Cowboys. Murray will get his share and Witten will be the security blanket that Romo has come to know and love.

4 Aaron Hernandez @Pit – He is a freak at the position , a hybrid WR/TE and that makes him an exciting start each week. He does get nicked up a bit here and there , but right now he is healthy and playing and if it’s PPR he is a surefire must start.

5 Fred Davis @ Buf – The Bills have a hard time covering anybody. With Moss , Cooley and Hightower all seriously injured , Davis may end up with 15 targets this game.

6 Vernon Davis vs Cle – He looks to get back on track this week after a needed break. He tends to follow up down weeks with good weeks. The Browns are not this good vs the pass , so something has to give. Start him with confidence this week.

7 Daniels vs Jax – AJ will be a GTD and my gut feeling is that he is not going to suit up. Daniels has been consistently average this season and is due for  TD. Dickson was open all over the field last week , but Flacco missed him a ton. Schaub is better than Flacco so start Daniels and feel good about it.

8 Gronk @Pit – You can argue that he is too low , and that may be the case , but in reality after the first few must starts everyone is about the same value. Davis and Daniels get the nod for me because they have better matchups and less competition for some QB love in PPR settings.

The Holy Grail- Week 3 TE’s

LEADING YOU TO THE PROMISED LAND EACH WEEK!

MUST STARTS

1 Witten vs Wash – He is dominating in yards and catches and this is PPR. Austin is out , Dez is banged up , this guy just keeps on chugging.

2 Gates vs KC – Okay well I am not the only guy that ate crow last week when it came to Gates. I know he is banged up , but you trust your studs , and he is a stud.

**EDIT: Gates inactive this week , adjust your rosters accordingly and obviously BENCH him as this ranking was for an active player**

3 Vernon Davis vs Cin – Has been a disappointment thus far. Had a meeting with Harbaugh and as I said last week about my sleeper play in Hixon “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” Should produce nicely this week.

4 Finley vs Chi – Due for a couple TDs , Chicago will have a hard time covering him.

5 Gronkowski vs Buf – Should KILL them with Hernandez out.

6 Graham vs Hou – Looks good so far , getting a decent amount of work , and in a high scoring game should produce big numbers , a 30 point week is coming soon , don’t have him on your bench when it happens.

7 Daniels vs NO – The breakout is coming , I would love to see him and Graham go off this week

The Holy Grail – Week 2 TE’s

I HAVE THE TE POSITION ON LOCK DOWN – READ TO WIN THE GAME!

MUST STARTS

1 Gates vs NE – Gates is the supreme TE in all the land. The Alpha , the Omega , the Kama Sutra? ANYWAY , has a great matchup with NE , which threatens to be a shootout. Fasano , who is not an Alpha Mega Sutra TE of fantasy dominated the matchup last week , expect Gates to be great.

2 Finley vs Car – Heap did not take advantage of a cushy matchup vs Car last week. But I believe Finley will explode this game. Rodgers should have looked his way more often , but Nelson picked up the slack and Jennings was on fire. Finley will show you this week why he is a stud and why you spent a 5th round pick on him in your PPR drafts.

3 Witten vs SF – Witten was solid as always vs a better defense than SF. Dez is banged up , Miles Austin should also have a very nice day , expect top end TE1 numbers from this fantasy football warrior.

4 Vernon Davis vs Dal – At home , should have to play catchup and is the only legit #megabeast in the passing game for SF. I am UNDAUNTED by his pedestrian showing last week. Vernon will be nice this week , he has to in order for them not to be embarrassed.
