Robert Tonyan (TE - GB)
Sun, Oct 10
Player Note on Robert Tonyan (TE - GB)
While Robert Tonyan is getting the snaps (https://flurrysports.org/2021-week-4-nfl-snap-counts/), his role does not benefit him for fantasy. The Packers' OL is beat up right now. For this reason, his first responsibility is to chip and/or stay to help out the tackle, which limits his receiving upside.
Cole Kmet (TE - CHI)
Sun, Oct 10
Player Note on Cole Kmet (TE - CHI)
After having the largest snap share amongst TEs last week (https://flurrysports.org/2021-week-4-nfl-snap-counts/) and Matt Nagy saying he needs to be more involved, Cole Kmet could be in for a breakout week against a Raiders defense that has allowed the TE1 to lead their past two opponents in receiving.
Brandon Aiyuk (WR - SF)
Wed, Nov 4
Player Note on Brandon Aiyuk (WR - SF)
Kendrick Bourne reportedly tested positive for COVID. His absence means the 49ers would rely heavier on the TEs and on Brandon Aiyuk. However, with Jaire Alexander likely to shadow Aiyuk, Shanahan may have to get the ball to his playmaker in more creative ways.
Kendrick Bourne (WR - SF)
Wed, Nov 4
Player Note on Kendrick Bourne (WR - SF)
Kendrick Bourne reportedly tested positive for COVID, so look elsewhere for a WR streamer this week. His absence means the 49ers would rely heavier on the TEs and on Brandon Aiyuk. However, with Jaire Alexander likely to shadow Aiyuk, Shanahan may have to get the ball to his playmaker in more creative ways.
Dallas Goedert (TE - PHI)
Sat, Oct 31
Player Note on Dallas Goedert (TE - PHI)
Dallas Goedert is expected to be active for SNF. If he's floating out there in your league, grab him, as he becomes a top-10 TE the rest of the way. Dallas surrenders the 10th-most points to TEs this season, and that is with playing Seattle, Arizona and Washington, so not exactly the cream of the crop. The TE position is featured in Philly, so look for a big day from Dallas against Dallas.
Davante Adams (WR - GB)
Wed, Oct 14
Player Note on Davante Adams (WR - GB)
Aaron Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee Show that Davante Adams is back, as expected, so start him as a WR1, per usual.
O.J. Howard (TE - TB)
Sun, Dec 29
Player Note on O.J. Howard (TE - TB)
Howard is seeing steady targets, but they have't resulted in a ton of success. That could change this week, with the Falcons being decent against the run. This could lead to Tampa passing even more near the goal line, and Howard is their best red zone weapon left. He is a low end TE1 this week, based on his potential in this matchup.
Jacob Hollister (TE - SEA)
Sun, Dec 29
Player Note on Jacob Hollister (TE - SEA)
Hollister had 62 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers the first time around and they have allowed the sixth-most points to the position over the past five weeks. With the Seahawks offense recently losing many of their weapons, Hollister could be a go-to guy for Wilson this week, making him a fringe TE1 with upside.
Greg Olsen (TE - CAR)
Sun, Dec 29
Player Note on Greg Olsen (TE - CAR)
Olsen caught 44 yards against the Saints the first time around, but with Will Grier now at QB, there is a greater range of outcomes. Olsen is a low upside play this week and there are probably better options available to you.
Kaden Smith (TE - NYG)
Sun, Dec 29
Player Note on Kaden Smith (TE - NYG)
Smith continues to see targets when Daniel Jones is at QB, making him a solid TE2 option this week.

C.J. Anderson (RB - FA) - C.J. Anderson signs with Panthers
Sat, May 12
Love love love this move for the Panthers. Don't let his recent production fool you, Anderson is a talented back and will be an upgrade from Jonathan Stewart. Last season, Stewart averaged about 13 rushes for 45 yards per game. I think Anderson can be closer to 60 per game with a couple more scores, though he could quickly turn into a headache to own depending on the game plan. I do, however, think the offense will be better, thus creating more opportunities.
Mark Ingram II (RB - NO) - Mark Ingram suspended four games for PEDs
Sat, May 12
Ingram will appeal this suspension, but we need to simply treat this thinking he serves the full four games. I'd say this pushes Ingram down to around the sixth round in drafts, after rookies Guice and Penny, and near other vets with workload questions, like Lamar Miller or Dion Lewis. It will be tough to draft him there, since a four-game suspension means he plays one game in the first six weeks. Yikes. Seems like an obvious buy-low in-season if the drafter is struggling.
