4. Monday morning stretch
On the Colts’ final drive, needing a touchdown to win, Andrew Luck chipped away at the field bit by bit trying to stretch the clock, 5-10 yards at a time. Needing a Hail Mary touchdown on the final play, backup Jacoby Brissett was brought in to attempt the pass, which shows that Frank Reich is not comfortable with Luck throwing his arm out, or Luck didn’t think he could wing it that far or maybe, Luck is not 100 percent. Either way, get ready for the media to question this drive from every angle possible to see if there’s smoke. At the very least, it makes you wonder if we’ll see those Luck to T.
Y. Hilton bombs we were all hoping to see throughout the season.
5. Tight Ends are not worthy, are not worthy
Tight end continues to be a fantasy position that’s tough to figure out. For example, Evan Engram has been a disappointment, and just suffered a knee injury, Greg Olsen is out for an extended period of time. Owners are grasping at straws, hoping that Tyler Eifert (6 catches for 74 yards in Week 3) can be healthy long enough and be productive enough to stream. The truth is, very few tight ends have made impacts besides the usual suspects. So Week 3 has produced a bunch of names we need to consider.
• Dallas Goedert – Philadelphia (7 catches for 73 yards and 1 TD) was more productive than Zach Ertz. It goes to show just how bad the WR position is in Philly for Carson Wentz to go two deep in their tight ends. The rookie could have value until other Eagles receivers get healthy.
• Jason Croom – Buffalo (1 catch for 26 yards and 1 TD) will consider this an anomaly, since it’s one catch and one target, while Charles Clay had three targets and two catches. Perhaps Croom was who was taking reps with Josh Allen with the second team? Put Croom on the watchlist for now.
• C.J. Uzomah – Cincinnati (2 catches for 19 yards and 1 TD) Similar to Goedert, Uzomah got the actual score despite Eifert’s production. He has often filled in for Eifert, but Tyler Kroft also got a catch. Not high on the targets, we will consider Uzomah a goal line vulture threat.
• Rhett Ellison – NY Giants (3 catches for 39 yards and 1 TD) filled in for Engram after he went down. Depending on the severity, could be a TE2 option.
