He just set the record for yards by a rookie tight end in a debut. Even if you don't start him he can't be on waivers now.

Hurting how? Who he/they be?


Reed and Herndon


I doubt that gets it done, but not sure I would offer anything higher either. I mean Reed isn't a bad option if he can stay on the field.

Maybe Shady for Hock depending on how you feel about that backfield

I'd like to hold Shady to see what I have first. I thought about Gordon hoping he bites on the name value. Not sure I want to wait him out!

oh, he is. if you've been paying any attention throughout the offseason, preseason, and week 1, every time he's afforded an opportunity to prove that he is the new gronk he steps up and delivers. then you sit back and go "yup. looks pretty gronk-y to me. yet again."

don't let loins bias and/or rookie TE bias prevent you from seeing that he's the real friggin' deal. he's breaking the mold and he's defying preconceptions. over and over and over again.

EDIT: as some sharks can confirm because they witnessed it firsthand, i wasn't sold on the pick when it went down. the pettigrew and ebron scars run very deep. but i've come around....because he's forced me to.

If Allen wasn't there, Hock was my #1 want there for the Jags. Dude is one of the best TE prospects I've seen in a while.

He wasn't even the best TE on the field at Iowa!!!

Edit: all around he was better than Fant, better blocker

he was also a more productive receiver. check the stats. fant being "better" than hock was all prognostication re: how they'd fare in FF as pros. that's it and that's all.

EDIT: hock will out produce fant. both this year and over their careers.
