Week 6 Rankings
Mike Gesicki Note

There may not be a more frustrating player to rank every week, as it seems Gesicki plays well in the games we least expect, while bombing in the ones we expect explosions. After two weak games with one catch for 15 yards in each of them against teams that struggled with tight ends, Gesicki goes and catches five passes for 91 yards against a 49ers team that had allowed just four tight ends to top 32 yards in their previous 20 games. This matchup is kind of the in-between, as the Jets have allowed the 15th-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, but on a per-target basis, they've allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per opportunity. There have been three relevant tight ends they've played through five weeks, and they've totaled: Jordan Reed 7/50/2, Mo Alie-Cox 3/50/1, and Noah Fant 5/35/0. They were all highly efficient, so as long as Gesicki gets targets, he should produce in a big way. The three targets in both Week 3 and Week 4 are extremely concerning, but let's not pretend there are many tight ends who don't have questions. But here's the thing: Not many of the other ones have the upside that Gesicki does. Start him as a TE1 this week and let's hope I don't jinx him.
