I’m turning to Brandon again here, because all I know about AJ is that I want to carry her around in my pocket and occasionally feed her candy, and that just sounds incredibly perverted. As per Mr. Stroud: “Promising young talent, not really there yet but worth investing in.” Value is the key here, as any one of these guys, while a risk for goose eggs, could become a star.
11) Jermaine Gresham – With Chad Ochocinco shopping for roommates in Foxboro, Gresham is probably Cinnci’s best receiving option now. Hell, he probably would be even if Ocho stayed. But will Andy Dalton have the time and fortitude to throw to him enough? My Magic 8 Ball says to ask again later.
12) Rob Gronkowski – With the New England Patriots, you have to choose between Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Gronk has been hitting on Kate Upton via Twitter, which means that he doesn’t give a f*ck, thinks he’s awesome and I like those two reasons enough. Meanwhile, Hernandez is a Gator and that’s good for no one.
13) Brent Celek – Every season, Celek seems like he should be an elite tight end. But he also has to share catches with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy maclin, Jason Avant, and LeSean McCoy. The guy is feast or famine.
14) Brandon Pettigrew – I really like Pettigrew this year. I have nothing to back that up with other than my gut, and my gut hasn’t been able to choose what I want for lunch today, so take that for what it’s worth.
15) Dustin Keller – Between weeks 2 and 4 last season, Keller was an all-time fantasy god. Outside of that? Worthless.
16) Tony Moeaki – One of my waiver wire picks to replace Winslow, Moeaki had a decent enough rookie year. People have been comparing him to Tony Gonzalez, based on nothing more than the Chiefs uniform, and mainly because people are stupid. However, in his second year and with a maturing offense, he could be good for some steady numbers, with some big games mixed in.
17) Jacob Tamme – If you’ve filled your starting spots and you’re at that point that you want to start grabbing sleepers in the later rounds, then Tamme is a good backup TE option. I wouldn’t take him as a starter, but he has great replacement value.
