I do like Alie-Cox to become a more consistent target and a good TE1 as the season goes on, and I expect he'll be my starter most weeks after this one.


You like Schultz over Jimmy Graham?

I do.
The Colts have a good defense and Foles, while better than Trubisky, is still a bad QB.
After 3 weeks - and the small sample size argument, as well as the fact that they haven't played a team with a good TE have some merit - Indy has allowed the fewest fantasy points to TEs, and the Browns have allowed the third most. I expect the Cowboys to easily move the ball against Cleveland, and feel good about Schultz being a beneficiary of that.

so you're expecting Dak to throw for another 400 yards this week?

Between that defense being really bad and Dak saying this, I expect Dak to throw for 400 yards every week :lol:

He might, but he doesn't have to throw for 400 for Schultz to top 70 and a score, and I expect that to be more than Graham gets this week.

I think he does. Prescott completed 37 passes last week and threw for 472 yards. Schuultz had 4 receptions for 48 yards; accounting for 11% of his receptions and 10% of his passing yards. He's not an especially talented TE competing for targets with 3 WR1s

When that pie shrinks, he's likely to be the last man out in that offense.

As for him vs Jimmy G I don't have a comment.. but I'm not starting him ahead of MAC personally -- a TE that has led his team in production the past 2 weeks and is going to be heavily relied upon outlet vs CHI's fierce pass rush.

Yes, he's probably the 4th receiving option, with three excellent ones ahead of him, most weeks.
I'm not betting on big volume every week. I'm betting he'll get enough volume and be a good redzone option THIS week in a high scoring game against a team that sucks at covering TEs.

He'll be the 5th option when they go 3 wide. Don't forget Zeke.

I hope you're right, but you have more faith in CLE's offense than I do :lol:

It's a mix between faith in Cleveland's offense (Chubb and, hopefully, Hunt) and lack of faith in Dallas's defense. The Cowboys will get some sacks and force some turnovers, but I don't expect them to keep the Browns out of the endzone all afternoon.

Hey, that's my line! ;)

If KC/Pats game is off I think I'm gonna have dump Jonnu for MAC. Have Kelce and can't justify carrying 3 TE's. Someone please make me feel better about this. Jonnu's target share has to go down when AJB comes back anyway, right?

edit: tough call 3 TE for one week is not bad, but if you do not have anyone else to drop

AJB return should harm Jennu. That isn't controversial. Someone in my league in similar spot had to drop him. I would like to hold him if possible and I plan to claim him in my league.

Thanks, make me feel better. :)

I sent out a bunch of trades involving Jonnu so here's to hoping someone bites.
