Week 6: Tight Ends

Gary Barnidge’s butt catch was one for the ages.  He continues to produce.  Kyle Rudolph and Greg Olsen are back from the bye week.  Tyler Eifert had a great week against Seattle.  He remains a must start in Buffalo.  Gates returned to old form Monday night.

5. Martellus Bennett

Tyler Eifert dominated Kam CHancellor at home last week.  Olsen should be Cam Newton’s priority target.   Both Eifert and Olsen remain must starts.  Antonio Gates made an immediate impact Monday night. He caught 9 of 11 targets and scored twice.  I expect another high volume of targets in green bat.  When Culter is behind center Bennett is targeted a lot.  24 times the last two games combined.

Breakout Tight End Gary Barnidge has had a career year.  McCown and the Browns throw a lot and Barnidge has worked himself into a prominent role.  Jimmy Graham has been disappointing.  Kack home Wilson is going to need him against the 4-0 Panthers.  Travis Kelce started out well in the first half.  Then the Chiefs offense went into neutral after Jamaal Charles’s injury.  Tamme suited up week 5 after being out with a concussion and was a big factor in the Atlanta passing game.  He caught 8 balls and could be needed again if Julio Jones’s hamstring is still bothering him.  Eric Ebron retuned to practice.  He missed last week game after being hurt in Seattle.
