However, there exists a flip side of that coin. Many of these breakouts will wind up as one-hit wonders (Steve Slaton says hi), leaving you with nothing more than some temporary production and a bitter taste in your mouth when you were counting on them as core components of your team moving forward. Knowing when to cash out on a player who gained a significant amount of value is every bit as important as identifying him in the first place.
As always, 2016 was no different in providing us with several of these “gatecrashers.” After combing through the PPR Top-50 lists, I’ve created lists of players who, to varying degrees, came out of nowhere to crash the fantasy party. From here, it’s time to determine how they should be valued moving forward.
I got started with the wide receivers, and then continued with the running backs (Parts One and Two). Now it’s time to move onto the inglorious tight end position! Please note that due to the lack of scoring at the position, I’ll only consider the Top-30 PPR scorers here.]]>

We covered 33 rookies throughout the season, including two tight ends. Let’s put a bow on the season by taking one more look at those pass catchers’ first shot playing on Sundays. As well as a quick glimpse into their futures.
Jerell Adams, TE NYG
Season Stats: 16 receptions, 122 yards, one touchdown
Adams caught the eye of some dynasty owners during his rookie season, catching 16 passes for 122 yards and a score and earning more and more playing time for the Giants as the season went on.
Armed with good size (6’-5”, 247 pounds) and above average speed, Adams outplayed Will Tye and Larry Donnell for much of the season but that’s really not saying much. Due to rounded-off routes and limited burst out of his breaks, he struggled to get open in man coverage and appeared to give up on routes from time to time.
Despite making a few plays as a rookie, Adams doesn’t profile as a starting NFL tight end, let alone a useful fantasy asset. New York is a prime landing spot for one of the top tight ends in the 2017 NFL draft and if the Giants take one, Adams will instantly become a special teams player.
Although he shouldn’t be dropped just yet, Adams should be on the roster bubble during the off-season.
Hunter Henry, TE LAC
Season Stats: 36 receptions, 478 yards, eight touchdowns
Despite sharing time with veteran Antonio Gates for much of the season, Henry had an impressive rookie campaign. Catching 36 passes for 478 yards and an eye-popping eight touchdowns, he proved himself as a seam stretcher with the ability to make contested grabs – particularly around the goal line. His big frame along with his athleticism and soft hands make him an ideal red zone target.]]>
Although corner is one of the most important positions in the modern, pass-heavy NFL, it’s probably the least appreciated of all in dynasty. We owners tend to ignore it until we absolutely have to pay attention and stream options carelessly instead of planning. What I want to do here is establish a very simple process to getting some production out of your corners without it becoming a back-breaking task.
Often fantasy players are guilty with corners of relying on tells that aren’t great indicators.
1.) Player Name – D’Onta Foreman
2.) College – Texas
3.) Height/Weight – 6’1″, 249 lbs
4.) Birth date – 4/24/96 (20)
5.) Class – Junior
6.) College stats – 2015: 95 attempts, 681 yards and five touchdowns; 2016: 323 attempts, 2028 yards and 15 touchdowns]]>
I recently conducted five mock drafts (another sign of the growing interest in the format) to gather super-flex dynasty ADP. I wanted to dig into the top 100 players in an effort to spot the key differences between typical 1QB leagues and these where owners have the option to start a pair of signal callers each week.]]>
