BOOTY CALL

(TE WAIVER WIRE WEEK 3-4)

 

By Muntradamus

 

BEAST DOME NATION.

Your TE Problems are finally solved for the Rest of the Season.

The TE position. A position where if your name was not Jimmy Graham or Julius Thomas, there was no reason to think twice about spending a high pick on you on draft day. With a lot of people avoiding the TE position all together, and then losing the UNICORN (Richard Rodgers) in the first half of the first game. After seeing 1 TE go down after another, the time has finally presented us with TEs that can be your go-to options for nearly the rest of the way. ¬†These 4 TEs below all hold potential to play like a Top 5 Talent on any Given Sunday. Only two of them I would trust with that statement. If you were trying to figure things out after the Jordan Reed injury in Week 1, or if you own Rob Gronkowski and are ready to sell high (You would be crazy if you didn’t). Maybe you just lost Dennis Pitta/Kyle Rudolph to a long-term injury. Maybe you want someone to backup Jordan Cameron, Vernon Davis, and Jason Witten until they get it together. Even if you have Niles Paul or Larry Donnell and are waiting for the next train to ride.

 

THIS IS THE LIST FOR YOU

Before you get too excited about Lorenzo Taliaferro (Mr. T) there is no reason to jump all over him. With Bernard Pierce likely coming back next week, as well as Justin Forsett still in the mix. This is at best a 3 way RB Monster like the Saints when Mark Ingram is healthy.

 

TE WAIVER WIRE (WEEK 4)

If you own a Texan whether it be Arian Foster/Andre Johnson/Ryan Fitzpatrick/Randy Bullock/Texans Defense. This is the order for you.

 

GARRETT GRAHAM – TE – HOU

Yahoo Owned %. 21%

Finally Garrett Graham is healthy again. He played in Week 2 making a beautiful catch on a ball thrown behind him. In Week 3, he was a major part of the passing game as the Texans were forced to throw the ball around with a late Arian Foster scratch. Garrett Graham is a great TE to add to PLAN B.EAST “DOME” to go along with Fitzpatrick/Arian/Andre J/Bullock/Texans D. You can ride or die with the Texans making it to the playoffs this season, even though it was bad week against the Giants. They are not the same team without Arian Foster.¬†

Most importantly, Ryan Fitzpatrick play supports the TE. He is a QB that keeps plays alive with his feet. Fitzpatrick made Scott Chandler a name you would consider in Fantasy Football, now a lot of people would question if he’s even playing this season if you were not a Bills Fan. He is. Garrett Graham is an underrated player who can make big plays, very athletic.

OWEN DANIELS – TE – BAL

Yahoo Owned %. 26%

Owen Daniels was once a consistent Top 10 TE. Even with a crowded TE situation in Houston where he had to compete with Garrett Graham and the occasional James Casey TD vulture, Owen Daniels always put up his numbers. With Dennis Pitta done for the year, Owen Daniels steps up in what is possibly his best situation yet in his NFL career. Finally no TE to compete with, as well as two WRs who would prefer to stay on the outside then get hit by a Linebacker. For Triple S (Steve Smith Sr.) he doesn’t mind, but the Ravens prefer keeping him in space. Owen Daniels will get his numbers, but at the age of 31 you have to think his gamechanging speed is on it’s last legs. He stole two goal line TDs from Pitta in Week 2, but those are goal line TDs. Daniels owners need those 50+ Yards, and he will get them. Owen Daniels is a good player to have the rest of the way on your team. Nice to be part of TEAM FLACCO.

ANDREW QUARLESS – TE – GB

Yahoo Owned %. 1%

All preseason long the Packers had us guessing at TE. Was it the “Unicorn” Richard Rodgers, or was Brandon Bostick going to hold the edge since he is the best option. No matter how well Andrew Quarless did during the preseason, the Richard Rodgers talent was too good to pass up and the Brandon Bostick potential to be the guy was too HUGE. We are now through 3 Weeks of the season, and the Packers made their decision. Andrew Quarless is the TE for GB and he can put up some big games this season, especially with the recent performances of Jarrett Boykin and Davante Adams who are dropping passes left and right.

Only downside to Quarless is he posses the same leash Jarrett Boykin and Davante Adams are currently under. The Packers are very deep at TE with Brandon Bostick and Richard Rodgers. With only a 1 TE set, Quarless has to continue to play at a high level to stay on the field the whole game.

Fantasy Football

JARED COOK – TE – STL

Yahoo Owned %. 17%

A lot of people writing Jared Cook with his slow start. Finally showed some life against the Cowboys with 7 receptions for 75 Yards, for the first time all season the Rams tried moving the ball downfield. Even got Kenny Britt involved in some deep throws. Jeff Fisher coached the Titans when Cook was a breakout star, and now coaching the Rams and seeing a season that is about to collapse. Jared Cook will be more involved down the field when Shaun Hill returns. If you are looking to give a WR another chance on your team, go after Kenny Britt. He is not even close to done.

    Munt, who do you like most out of Graham/Daniels/Quarless?

    • Muntradamus September 22, 2014   Reply →

      Give me Garrett Graham long-term with athleticism and Schedule. Especially if I am carrying another Texan on my team.

      If I want the highest upside player of the group, Andrew Quarless can put up big numbers as the potential #3 Option on the Packers. His leash is small, but his opportunity is there.

  • carl edwards September 22, 2014   Reply →

    Hey Munt, how do we feel about Foster long term? Blue was drafted and he won’t come off of him….see what we can get for him as long as it’s top 5? Also, I’m in Win now mode as I’ll be 0-3 if Cutler scores more than 20 tonight. So is Ball tradable. or do we wait until his schedule softens? wk seven and after….

  • Matt September 22, 2014   Reply →

    Sell high on gronk? Are you high? Guys playin like half the snaps right now and still producing. Hes only gonna get healthier/play more snaps as the season progresses. Sell high? Guys a BUY LOW if anything. BEAST ON.

    • Muntradamus September 22, 2014   Reply →

      Gronk is one big hit away from missing the entire season. He is clearly not 100% and playing on his Knee injury and taking more shots to his arm is not going to keep him healthier moving forward.

      Right now you can package Gronk and a RB to get a star Buy Low in Montee Ball. Gronk is turning into Bubba Franks. Goal Line TD or nothing type of TE.

  • Onesidebadass September 22, 2014   Reply →

    What about a replacement for McCown? Cousins is gone and I have Brady as my backup but he has not been looking so good. Would you grab someone along the lines of Eli with his cake matchups coming up, Fitzpatrick to stack with my Andre, or do you like the upside of Bridgewater or Bortles? I loved what I saw from Bortles in the preseason but I’m in dire need of 15+ points from my QB.

  • Michael September 22, 2014   Reply →

    A guy in my league is offering me Romo, julian edleman and I can probably get Pierre thomas from him too….for my Drew Brees and Steve Smith Sr. Should I do it, it’s a PPR league. With the trade my team would look like this:

    Romo
    Foster
    Pierre Thomas
    Khiry Robinson
    Mark Ingram
    Ben Tate
    Carlos Hyde

    Roddy White
    Julian Edleman
    Golden Tate

    Munt,
    I have Foster and Bullock, is
    G.Graham > Gates?
    Fitzpat > Russell Willson?

    • Muntradamus September 22, 2014   Reply →

      Gates is better than Graham.

      Wilson is better than Fitzpatrick.

      Bullock only good when Arian is there, Texans offense is not the same without him. They should roll next week. Personally if you want a better chance of winning games, more often than not you should roll with Fitz over Wilson. I would try to trade Russell now, very overrated fantasy QB.

    • Anonymous September 22, 2014   Reply →

      And is B.Tate > T.Quizz?

      • Muntradamus September 22, 2014   Reply →

        Go T.Quizz. Failed on goal line chances on Sunday, he will always get his as he is the future for the Colts.

          Thanks Munt, keep up the quality material and Beast!

  • mike8278 September 22, 2014   Reply →

    What about Kelce?

    • Muntradamus September 22, 2014   Reply →

      KC Offense is horrible. Good week from Kelce, but besides Charles/Knile this is a fantasy team to avoid on offense. Week 2 he was saved by an incredible no look catch.

  • Kumis September 22, 2014   Reply →

    Hey Munt, I need a defense with the Denver bye this week. Who do you think I should drop? Trich, Witten, Greene or Austin? Thanks!

    • Muntradamus September 23, 2014   Reply →

      Out of that group. Miles Austin is the most replaceable.

  • shawn September 23, 2014   Reply →

    Ertz, graham, or daniels. drop ertz for graham or daniels munt?

    • Muntradamus September 23, 2014   Reply →

      Give me Garrett Graham. Ertz has way too many people to compete with for targets, including another TE.

  • Anonymous September 23, 2014   Reply →

    Thanks Munt! Exactly what I needed with Reed/Cook at TE. Graham/Daniels are available and I’m dropping Cook. Fitz is a tough QB and should play well from here on.

    Keep it up!

  • Robsta September 23, 2014   Reply →

    Thanks Munt! This article is exactly what I needed with Reed/Cook at TE. I’m dropping Cook for Graham/Daniels. Fitzpatrick plays tough and should be solid.

    Keep it up!

  • khiyasu September 23, 2014   Reply →

    Hey Munt, I have:

    Cutler RG3
    Foster Ball SJax Hyde Blue
    Marshall Andre Maclin SSS Evans Gordon
    Reed

    Drop Evans for GGraham?
    Also, would you send Steve Smith for TQuizz for RB depth?

    Thanks

  • C Spit September 23, 2014   Reply →

    I need a RB to replace A Foster or Knile Davis in case they don’t start. Steven Jackson and Deangelo Williams are on the wire. Is Hyde droppable? Also should I roll with Miami or Detroit DEF?

    • adam September 23, 2014   Reply →

      Add S.Jax 100%! Keep Hyde, he’s on the verge of a breakout. What’s your roster like C Spit

      • C Spit September 23, 2014   Reply →

        A Rodgers
        A Foster
        R Bush
        K Davis
        Roddy White
        Pierre Garcon
        Golden Tate
        Marques Colston
        Zach Ertz
        NE Def
        C Hyde
        J Gordon

        We can only keep 4 on the bench

        • adam September 23, 2014   Reply →

          I would drop K.Davis for S.Jax.

          Also, I’d drop Z.Ertz and add Garrett Graham.

          • adam September 23, 2014  

            But definitely drop1 of your defense

  • vancoonsie September 25, 2014   Reply →

    Picked up Graham for Pita, was sitting on L Green. Should I drop Green for Quarless?
