As many of us know by sifting through the waiver wire (and many of us not being Gronk owners), the troublesome times of being a “1-B” tight end owner have become very apparent. For soothe! The streaming tight end Acropolis of Justice has arrived and peered it’s shallow head. Alas, it is Sir Eric of Ebron riding on his trusty steed of Cooter. It’s funny I wrote that without any implications of it being sexually charged in any manner, and when I reread it out loud in front of my church choir, it elicited several “lord have mercies!” and a few “oh my’s!” It’s Fantasy Football, fellow church pundits. There is no sexual being in the house of Jay(Wrong), because the path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by pass-catching tight ends. And you will know my name is the Lord when I strike my YAC on thee. So I am glad that religiousness is all omnipresent up in here, because last week instead of getting Wilson’d, I should have Nae-Nae’d and said Conley… my bad. Alex Smith is the Judas of fantasy quarterbacks, and my coin said tails to his Conley heads. I will atone thee this week with the bye week and future tight end love through my tagging of Eric Ebron as the salvation of the usually blah-flotilla known as the fantasy TE. Intrigued? Of course you are, I just used 3-4 hidden quotes directly from the bible in that first paragraph. Seek further for the divinity of knowledge within!

What is not to like about Eric Ebron? He has the full support of the newly minted J.B. Cooter behind him. He’s from a neighboring hood of mind known as Newark. He’s in a pass-heavy offense that has yet to find it’s way under a regime that has been since shown the door. That endorsement is good news for Megatron owners, or if you don’t own Calvin Johnson, this is the last time you can to attempt to buy low. So the TE position has been a huge blah-fest, it’s like going to Jamaica and not partaking in the local vegetation. Just awful display of human sensibility. So as you look at the blank void left in your TE spot this week from the bye week of the Ertz, Reed and Clay Foundation of Fantasy Blandness, look at the Lions tight end who is owned in a mere 24% of ESPN leagues, (before waivers obviously happened). If he is available in your league and you have someone either on bye or is basically failing to meet the grade fantasy-wise, it’s time to make a switch, and a switch possibly for the rest of the year.
So what can Ebron do for you this week to help solidify your fantasy team from being torn to shreds in comparison to the fantasy/waiver darling of TE’s in Gary Barnidge? Invest in Ebron. I know it sounds like the company that tanked and swallowed most of its investors with it. This is fake, fantasy, the pretend version of football. It is like Freddy Kruger of stats, just don’t fall asleep, or for that matter, pee the bed, because that’s just gross. So Ebron faces off against the Chiefs this week, and for the most part, they aren’t great against opposing TE’s, yielding 7 pass attempts and over 50 yards a game. Ebron is no normal Nancy, he wears special doll clothes and is in a higher-powered offense than most. We really haven’t seen it much this year as the old regime was stale. The previous game was a Northeast classic against one of the best teams against a tight ends, and he managed 5 catches on all 5 targets for 89 yards and 1 TD. Those numbers alone are great for a weekly streamer, but Ebron is putting his foot in the ground and making his name like Redman or the Outsidaz. He is going to be a “1-A” tight end the rest of the way… book it. And that’s the bottom line cause the Smoke show says so! Smokey’s prediction: 7 Targets 6 Receptions, 76 Yards 1 Touchdown.
