Hunter Henry Is Now a Patriot, but Has New England’s Spending Spree Actually Crushed His Fantasy Value?

After a wild day of spending on the first day of free agency, the New England Patriots were at it again on Tuesday. This time, they inked Hunter Henry, formerly of the Los Angeles Chargers, to a three-year, $37.5 million contract. But while the 2020 Patriots offense lacked weapons, does the crowded nature of the 2021 team make it hard to trust Henry in fantasy…...

Jonnu Smith Lands With a Patriots Team That Needs a Lot of Help, But Can They Launch Him in Fantasy?

The New England Patriots have signed former Tennessee Titans tight end Jonnu Smith to a four-year, $50 million deal that includes $31.25 million fully guaranteed. While this move will certainly bolster their offensive arsenal, does it make Smith a top-tier fantasy option at the TE spot? It would be fair to say that the Patriots needed more production from their tight ends in 2021 than…...

Jalen Reagor’s Rookie Campaign Was Disappointing, But You’re Probably Too Low on Him in 2021

Wide receiver is a position that the Philadelphia Eagles have struggled to get production from in recent years. You have to go back to 2014 for the last time an Eagles wideout — Jeremy Maclin — crested 1,000 receiving yards. But they have certainly tried to find playmakers at the WR spot over the years. A year after re-acquiring DeSean Jackson and drafting J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, neither of…...

Brandon Aiyuk’s Rookie Comps Suggest a Breakout Is Coming, but Are There Enough Targets to Go Around in San Francisco?

Back in March 2020, a revered and much-respected writer for RotoViz[1]This writer looks a bit like me, and even lives in my house. wrote that Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk could be the Deebo Samuel of the 2020 NFL Draft. As if to amplify this comparison, the same team that drafted Samuel in 2019, the San Francisco 49ers, took the plunge and spent the…...

Justin Jefferson’s Rookie Comps Are Elite, but Is There Value at His Current Price?

Before the 2020 NFL Draft, many NFL analysts, pundits, and prognosticators believed the Philadelphia Eagles would spend their first-round pick on a wide receiver. A large chunk of this group also believed that the player they would choose would be LSU WR Justin Jefferson. The Minnesota Vikings were also sure of this, as evidenced by their joy when the Eagles instead selected TCU speedster, Jalen…...

Clyde Edwards-Helaire Disappointed in 2020, But His Rookie Comps Include Second-Year Breakout Stars

One of the goals of the fantasy manager is to obtain players who form part of potent offenses. So when the Kansas City Chiefs spent a first-round draft pick on LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire last year, hopes were understandably high that the player would be an asset to fantasy managers as early as his rookie season. While he had his moments, there seemed to…...

J.K. Dobbins Could Be the Next Nick Chubb, but Is That Enough to Make Him a Good Value?

When the NFL’s most prolific rushing attack adds an explosive rookie running back with an early-round draft pick, people have the right to get excited. This was certainly the case in 2020 when the Baltimore Ravens selected J.K. Dobbins in the second round of the NFL Draft. Dobbins had his moments in his first season. But just how good a year was it? Dobbins is…...

Is James Robinson Destined to Follow in Leonard Fournette’s Footsteps?

The Jacksonville Jaguars were expected to struggle offensively in 2020. However, the prospect of their lead running back capturing a massive opportunity share made that player something of a dark horse fantasy pick. These hopes seemed to have been dashed somewhat when the player expected to fill the role, namely Leonard Fournette, was released just prior to the season. But the prophecy ended up coming…...

Should the Dolphins Move on from Tua? Just How Scared Should Fantasy Owners Be?

For a long time, Tua Tagovailoa was seen as the belle of the 2020 NFL Draft ball. A prize that would make earning the first overall pick in the draft something to aim for, rather than be ashamed of. For much of the early 2019 campaign, the Miami Dolphins seemed well placed to take the honors in the #TankForTua sweepstakes. But his hip injury, and…...

Is Joe Burrow the Next Carson Wentz or the Next Ryan Tannehill?

As the dust begins to clear following the 2020 NFL season, and we start to fall in love with a whole new rookie class, it is important that we do not simply forget the players who were the apples of your eye a year ago. With this in mind, we have come to the time of the year where the RotoViz crew looks back on…...

Week 17 Tight End Plays for DFS

For the majority of people, the fantasy football season is over. The title has been awarded, the consolation bowls begrudgingly fought over, and the excuses for failure have been coming thick and fast. Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the runners up, and up your game in 2021 everyone else. I have a problem that prevents me from stopping doing things when I should. I…...

It’s Now or Never: The Tight End Report – Week 16

The final week of the 2020 NFL Fantasy Football season is upon us. Unless you play in Week 17, in which case I really can’t help you. All the lineup decisions, the waiver claims, and the trades have all led to this moment – the championship game. If you have navigated the weird and wild season that we have experienced and made it to your…...

The Tight End Report – Week 15

It was another week in which multiple tight ends made their presence felt in fantasy football. After 18 players posted 10 or more PPR points in Week 14, 16 managed that feat this week. Alas, not all of them will be able to help fantasy managers this week. But there are three players available on waiver wires across the globe that you should consider plugging…...

It’s Dalton Schultz Time . . . Again: The Tight End Report – Week 14

Week 13 was bonkers, just for the sheer number of tight ends that made their presence felt on fantasy rosters. We had 18, yes 18 TEs break double-figures in fantasy points this past week. And there is still a game left to play! Wow! Below is a positive treasure trove of information about the performances of tight ends from Week 13. The biggest performers, the…...

Let’s Have Fun(yan) with Tonyan: The Tight End Report – Week 13

Week 12 is still not over, incredibly. The Ravens and Steelers are still waiting to face off in a game that should have been played last Thursday. But while they keep us waiting, the rest of the NFL world goes on spinning around. Below is a positive treasure trove of information about the performances of tight ends from Week 12. The biggest performers, the guys…...

Giving Thanks: What are the RotoViz Writers Thankful for in 2020?

As we approach the holiday season in what has been a difficult and trying year, it is important for everyone to focus on the good things in life. So much time in 2020 has been devoted to the bad, both in the real world and in the NFL. With this in mind, the writers at RotoViz got their heads together (in a socially distant manner,…...

Reed All About It: Tight End Streaming Options for Week 12

It’s Thanksgiving week, and time is precious for everyone as we enter the holiday season. We are tasked with making the most of each and every special moment afforded to us as we drag ourselves closer to a year that has been trying for everyone. With this in mind, the usual tight end report has been trimmed down for this week. I shall be back…...

It’s Rudolph SZN Again: The Tight End Report – Week 11

Another week and another batch of weird names scoring touchdowns at the tight end spot. We knew it was going to be rough heading into the week without Travis Kelce, but when names like Colin Thompson and Pharaoh Brown start scoring, you know it’s going to be an epic week of toxic confusion for the position. As usual, we have three streaming options that you…...
