TE - FA
Week 6 Outlook
Brandon Bostick saw one target on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and was held without a catch.
Brandon Bostick, like pretty much all of the tight ends for the New York Jets, is essentially a blocker who happens to be eligible to catch passes on most downs. The Jets do not use their tight ends, and they especially do not use Bostick, who only has one catch and three targets through seven weeks.
Brandon Bostick finally got on the board for the year in Week 5, catching one pass for nine yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Brandon Bostick catching his first pass of the year in Week 5 should tell you everything you need to know. Bostick only played five offensive snaps on Sunday, and he is now third on the depth chart behind both Kellen Davis and Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
The Vikings signed TE Brandon Bostick on Wednesday. He was released by Green Bay on Monday after spending two seasons there, reeling in nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns.
He earned just 34 snaps in 2014 and was due just $585,000 with one-year left on his rookie deal this upcoming season. The Packers gave up on him despite his athleticism, but Minnesota wants to see what they have. The 26-year-old will be known for his mishandling on the key onside kick in the NFC Championship unless he turns it around. He will compete with Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford for a spot behind starter Kyle Rudolph.
Brandon Bostick went on twitter to announce that his time in Green Bay was over, and was thankful for the time spent in there. The official release was later confirmed.
Bostick came into the season the favorite by some experts to win the starting job in Green Bay in the absence of Jermichael Finley at TE. However, a series of injuries and inconsistent play topped off by the unfortunate onside kick drop in the NFC Championship game has left Bostick a free agent. He is still young and has shown flashes of talent, in the right situation he may still prove himself fantasy relevant. Unfortunately that will not be in Green Bay.
Brandon Bostick saw his first offensive snaps since Week 10 when he scored a touchdown before getting injured again. He finished with zero targets/receptions.
Bostick is not on your radar for fantasy and if you're in playoffs right now, then no Green Bay TE is on your radar. Bostick has speed though and can be a matchup nightmare. Before going out with a hip injury the Packers used him in some 3 TE sets with 2 running backs. He might be getting worked back into the offense just in time to add a new wrinkle for opposing defenses in (real) playoffs. Exciting to watch, but Bostick remains irrelevant in fantasy.
