I wasn’t expecting week 1 every week. I just wanted a bad Delanie Walker game out of him.

You can pick a different tight end if it suits you better

If you put the microscope on any player then you will find evidence like that. The difference is a rookie has not had an opportunity to develop a track record. And the microscope is being applied because of what he did week 1, the unrealistic expectations that followed, and that he didn't do anything the last 2 weeks.
Rookies are not consistent. The ones that are? Unicorns. Expect them not to be though.

Make whatever excuses you want to make for his lack of production. The problem is that he is lacking production.
I don't see how anyone continues to start him at this point. Whether you hold on to him or not depends on individual league settings.
