Kyle Rudolph continues to be a solid start. He’ll be without Percy Harvin for the rest of the season. Something that could hurt his stock.
1. Tony Gonzalez @ Panthers
2. Jimmy Graham @ Giants
3. Martellus Bennett vs Saints
4. Jermaine Gresham vs Cowboys
5. Aaron Hernandez vs Texans
6. Heath Miller vs Chargers
7. Jason Witten @ Bengals
8. Owen Daniels @ Patriots
9. Kyle Rudolph vs Chicago
10. Dennis Pitta @ Redskins
11. Brandon Pettigrew @ Packers
12. Jacob Tamme vs Raiders
Missing from this list is the tight end star of last week Brandon Myers. Myers has a tough Thursday night match up. Thursday nights have been sluggish for many players this season. I don’t like Myers this week. Always an okay PPR start. Don’t expect last week. On the other side I think Tamme can have a decent start. Oakland’s pourus defense should be torched by Manning.
I don’t think the loss of Percy Harvin will crush Kyle Rudolph’s numbers. The 50+ yards and a threat in the red zone area should be expected.
Aaron Hernandez and the Patriots welcome the Texans Monday night. He became a bigger part of the offense last week. He should be targeted early and often in this game. Edelman is out and makes getting Hernandez the ball a priority. Owen Daniels is a must start. Pats can be very susceptible to good tight end play. I’m looking for 80 yards and a possible TD.
Dennis Pitta is usually a much better start at home. Mostly due to Joe Flacco being a horror show on the road. I think Pitta can be a usable option in Washington.
If you need a pick up for this week. Tony Moeaki in Kansas City scored in the double digits with a TD. He hasn’t been seeing a ton of targets. But he’s been making the most of his opportunities. Another good week could be in store.
