Week 4 Fantasy PPR Rankings: Tight end

first_imgA highly drafted veteran and a potential breakout rookie tight end are proving that for all their respective talent, they might be iffy fantasy options. As you can see in our Week 4 TE PPR rankings, Jared Cook and T.J. Hockenson are falling fast and squarely on the start ’em, sit ’em bubble, but as is always the case, there are other waiver wire pickups and matchup-based sleeper tight ends to move up and take their places.Cook looks especially tough to start right now. He was targeted twice in Week 3 and has five catches through three games. We still think of him as a touchdown and down-the-field threat, but with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, Cook just isn’t a reliable fantasy option, especially in PPR. Then in Detroit, after a monster Week 1, Hockenson has had back-to-back one-catch games. It’s not crazy to expect a rookie tight end to be boom-or-bust all season, so his value definitely takes a hit in PPR. WEEK 4 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 4 brings with it the advent of bye weeks, and there’s only one to be concerned about at tight end: George Kittle. He obviously shouldn’t be dropped, so you may need to find another TE on the waiver wire and deal with rostering two tight ends for the week. One option, still available in more than half of Yahoo leagues, is Seattle’s Will Dissly.Dissly has had two-straight games of at least five catches, 50 yards and a score for the Seahawks. This week, he gets to face a Cardinals defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Dissly has a safe PPR floor with the amount Russell Wilson has looked his way, and he also has a high ceiling this week against a porous defense.WEEK 4 DFS LINEUPS:DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPWe’ve dropped O.J. Howard down our PPR rankings a bit from standard despite an encouraging Week 3 that saw him rack up 60 yards on three catches. It’s still concerning that he’s seen a total of nine targets through three games, including none in Week 2. Until the Bruce Arians-led offense in Tampa Bay wants to involve Howard more, his PPR ceiling will be limited as a touchdown- and big-play dependent option.One other name that could be singled out for deep-league owners is James O’Shaughnessy. He’s averaging four targets per game and has unseated Geoff Swaim as the top tight end in Jacksonville. With Gardner Minshew looking like a competent NFL quarterback, O’Shaughnessy should have a decent floor each week.WEEK 4 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiverReminder: Check back for updates during the week.

Gardner Minshew gets weird nickname from Leonard Fournette; group records ‘Minshew Mania’ video

first_imgFew NFL fans had heard of Gardner Minshew II before this season, but the Jaguars’ unlikely hero is fast becoming one of the best stories of the year.The rookie quarterback out of Washington State rallied the team to a 26-24 victory in Denver on Sunday, just his latest heroics since taking over for the injured Nick Foles in the season opener. Just check out how he dodges several pass rushers to keep a play alive before firing a touchdown pass in the third quarter. Jaguars’ Jalen Ramsey (back) inactive vs. Broncos, ending streak of 51 straight games MINSHEW MAGIC!@GardnerMinshew finds @track_chaser for the TD.#DUUUVAL pic.twitter.com/eqQfYsH1fG— #DUUUVAL (@Jaguars) September 29, 2019After the game, Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette — who had a great afternoon himself with 225 yards rushing — shared a nickname for Jacksonville’s new hero.”His name is ‘Jock Strap King,'” Fournette said, referencing a tale he told recently about how Minshew stretches in his, well, jock strap, in the locker room. Related News Jalen Ramsey trade rumors: Jaguars turned down two first-round picks for star cornerbackcenter_img The “Minshew Mania” hype surrounding the young quarterback inspired a Jacksonville-based music trio, Sister Sound, to record a video about him: “We went from, ‘Hey, what are we gonna do?’ to ‘Hey, give me some more Minshew.'”Minshew has completed 69% of his passes this season for 905 yards, with seven touchdowns, one interception … one bad nickname and a fun music video. And then, after giving Minshew that nickname more befitting of a high school player, Fournette shared some genuine praise for the rookie.”He’s stronger than you think,” Fournette said. “I don’t know if the mustache gives him power or what.”last_img read more

Myles Garrett regrets swinging helmet at Mason Rudolph: ‘I made a mistake, I lost my cool’

first_imgBrowns head coach Freddie Kitchens and quarterback Baker Mayfield were scathing of Garrett, who addressed the incident himself post-game.’THAT’S ASSAULT’: NFL players react to Myles Garrett’s helmet-swinging attack”I made a mistake, I lost my cool and I regret it,” Garrett told reporters. “It’s gonna come back to hurt our team. The guys who jumped in to the scrum… I appreciate my team having my back but it should never get to that, it’s on me.”“He understands what he did. He understands what he did is totally unacceptable.” — Kitchens on Garrett— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) November 15, 2019When asked if the incident overshadowed Cleveland’s win, Garrett said: “A win is a win. I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happens in eight seconds.” Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said he made a mistake and regrets it after his ugly hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.Garrett, an NFL Pro Bowler in 2018, ripped off Rudolph’s helmet before swinging it and hitting the Steelers QB in the head late in Cleveland’s 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh’s Maurkice Pouncey then aimed kicks and punches at Garrett in shocking scenes in Cleveland on Thursday. Pittsburgh’s Rudolph also spoke to the media afterwards and he hit out at Garrett.”Not in my years. I thought it was cowardly and pretty bush league,” Rudolph said when asked if he had seen anything like that in football. “… I’m fine and good to go.”Pressed on whether Garrett should be suspended, Rudolph replied: “I don’t know what the rules are. I know it’s bush league and he is a total coward. … It’s OK, I’ll take it. I’m not going to back down from no bully. We will see what happens.”last_img read more

Ron Francis says he told Carolina Hurricanes ownership about Bill Peters’ alleged physical abuse

first_imgFormer Carolina Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis claimed in a statement Saturday that he did tell former team owner Peter Karmanos about Bill Peters’ alleged physical abuse of two players during a game.Francis, who served as GM in Carolina from 2014-18, wrote that he took immediate action to address the reported incident — which former NHLer Michal Jordan brought to light amid a debacle that led to Peters’ resignation as Calgary Flames head coach — and that nothing else occured between the players and Peters during his time with the club. MORE: How Calgary Flames reacted to Bill Peters’ resignationJordan, 29, wrote on Twitter that Peters once kicked him in the back during a game and punched a different Carolina skater in the head, an account that current Hurricanes head coach Rob Brind’Amour corroborated to the media on Nov. 27.”When I was general manager in Carolina, after a game, a group of players and hockey staff members made me aware of the physical incidents involving two players and Bill Peters,” Francis wrote in the statement. I took this matter very seriously.”I took immediate action to address the matter and briefed ownership …”Statement from Ron Francis: pic.twitter.com/2UVFGuOECH— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) November 30, 2019Karmanos, who sold majority ownership of the franchise to Tom Dundon in 2018, told the Seattle Times earlier this week he had no knowledge of the incident and that he would have fired Peters “in a nanosecond” if he had known. “I’m pretty upset,” Karmanos added, saying that Jordan opted to leave the Hurricanes organization for the KHL despite being offered a contract after the 2015-16 season. “And I have my calls in to Ronnie as well. I think he’s the one who’s going to have to tell people what he did when he found out that the coach had done these things.’’Both Peters and Francis left the Hurricanes organization within a matter of days in April 2018 as Dundon asserted control over the team. Francis is now the general manager of the NHL’s Seattle expansion team that begins play in the 2021-22 season. For that reason, the Hall of Famer said it would have been inappropriate to comment on Peters while another team — the Flames — conducted an investigation into Peters’ past conduct.The Athletic’s Sara Civian reported that she had been told Francis wanted to release a statement earlier this week but could not. Francis also said that he will not comment on the matter further.last_img read more
