Over their last two games, Gesicki has totaled eight targets and turned them into 5/91/0. Meanwhile, Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe have combined for eight targets and turned them into 7/88/3. This is not great news. What is great news is that it's not likely to keep up. In those two games, Gesicki has run 50 routes, while Shaheen has run 14, and Smythe has run just four of them. Still, Gesicki's fantasy finishes have been maddening: 24, 2, 15, 45, 7, 76. That's extremely boom-or-bust, and now having a rookie quarterback under center isn't likely to help his consistency, as they're likely to go a bit more run-heavy. One bit that you should know is that Gesicki has been working with the scout team all year, so he should have chemistry with Tagovailoa from day one. The Rams aren't a team who's been great against tight ends, allowing both George Kittle and Tyler Kroft to finish as top-two options against them. Targets have been funneled to them due to their cornerback talent, and that's led to a league-leading 64 targets against them. They're allowing a pedestrian 1.61 PPR points per target, so it hasn't been a smash spot without a lot of volume, but Gesicki should be in the TE1 conversation this week.
