Guess who's back in the headlines in Fantasy? The same tight end who sent everyone flocking to the waiver wire after his five-catch, 85-yard, touchdown-scoring performance in Week 5 and his seven-catch, 61-yard, touchdown-scoring performance in Week 8. The
But here's the problem: Aside from those three games -- which are pretty well spaced apart, you'll notice -- he has a total of six catches for 38 yards.
So should we be flocking to the waiver wire to add him again? A tight end doesn't score two touchdowns every week, you know.
Yeah ... but Wright doesn't do anything, not even catch a pass, every week. Why would that change now? The proper response to this performance is indignation that those two touchdowns didn't go to someone else. Don't make it anything more.
Maybe for some PPR owners,
To be more specific, during a five-game stretch spanning Weeks 4-8, he averaged 4.6 catches for 41.4 yards. And considering he had a nine-catch, 91-yard performance mixed in there, you can imagine how yucky the other four were.
But in three games since, he has averaged 8.3 catches for 76.0 yards, looking more like the player we saw the first three weeks of the season. His performance Week 12 against Detroit was especially encouraging. He was targeted 15 times, catching 11 passes for 89 yards.
Now, if you play in a standard Fantasy league, the occasional 80-yard game isn't going to do much for you, but if you play in a PPR league, a consistent 5-10 catches, which Edelman has gotten back to delivering recently, is a pretty big deal. Time to get him active again.
This take on both
But I'm certainly not counting on it.
Facing the league's No. 1 run defense, Blount was really good Week 12 against Detroit, rushing 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns only three days after signing with the Patriots. Granted, he was with them last year and knows the offense, but still, bonus points for the quick turnaround.
Belichick loved giving him the ball at the goal line last year and clearly doesn't owe Gray anything. Gray was clearly a right-place-at-the-right-time guy, getting a starter's workload in an offense where he could do no wrong only because Stevan Ridley suffered a season-ending injury. And he blew it.
Let's hold on to him one more week just to be sure, but you wouldn't want to start Gray in Week 13. And if Blount is available in your league, pick him up.
Gostkowski converted field goals of 35 and 43 yards. He finished 2 for 2 with four extra points on the day. He has converted 26 of 27 field goal attempts this season.
Edelman came down with four receptions for 10-plus yards, including a 16-yard grab in the second quarter. He came down with 11 of the 15 passes thrown his way for 89 yards. He has 695 yards with two touchdowns on the season.
He'll look to keep rolling Week 13 against Green Bay.
