Rob is say to be out for this game. Who would you rather pickup from below?

 

Dwyane Allen, Ben Waston, Jets Jenkins, Jason Witten or Eric Ebron?

ASJ and it's not all that close really. McCown loves his TEs and the Browns are giving up a lot of points to them this year. ASJ could also turn into a reliable starter in the event Gronk misses more time.

Yeah I've made other plans... If you're looking for a quick and dirty add off the WW, Austin Sefarion-Jenkins is like 90% available, has a plus matchup, and has been getting 5-6 targets in the last couple of games. 

 

If u have instant pickups u might be able to do something but many leagues have overnight waivers or faab.  Those owners are screwed unless u are carrying a second good te.

We've got waivers but they don't lock until kickoff... seems like that is the most common setup? Never played in FAAB before but from what I understand don't you still get a free agency period?

You can put Kelce in there as well. So tempted to pickup Allen. Tampa Bay has good corners and vulnerable the short passing routes with most their starting LB out.

Has Allen even caught a pass this year? Brady will completely fade the TE tonight.

Nope.  U bid every day and overnight whoever wins gets the player.  Instant pickups are hard because people who have more free time have a big advantage.  I prefer overnight so u can find time to decide who to bid on, but in this situation u are screwed

thing is, do you really want to bet your money on a TE that has zero catch on the year aka Allen or grab one of those 3-4 targets per game dudes aka Miller? I'd say go with a guy like Miller, less of a gamble

I get that but that’s essentially what a handcuff is, that you gamble on the replacement to assume the starters duties or to at least seize the opportunity. Obviously he’s going to have 0 catches on the season with a healthy gronk. But Allen has proved in the past to be more than capable of receiving.

I’m not touching Dwayne Allen, starting at a bagel until Thursday is a terrifying possibility. Prob going to roll with ASJ.

Thoughts on Allen as a spot starter?

Wouldn't be surprised if he goes all night without a catch. Also wouldn't be surprised if he goes 5 catches for 48 yards and 2 TDs because, well, Brady.

Jets vs. Browns may be the most unwatchable game of the year. ASJ may get couple looks but unsure he will find the end zone. Allen don't have a catch this year but Patriots historically are fantasy TE goldmine AKA Martellus Bennet last year, who isn't doing anything in GB this year.

So did he hurt his thigh yesterday, where is this injury coming from?

HOW DARE YOU! :P

 

Jets haven't actually looked horrible this year on offense. Also I recall reading that Dwayne Allen looked bad all preseason and camp so IDK... seems like a risky start to me.
