Both of my Rob Gronkowski teams were one-and-done in the fantasy football playoffs.
In Week 14 I suggested streaming the following tight ends if you were a Gronk owner: Tony Scheffler (scored a TD), Greg Olsen (scored a TD), Jared Cook (scored a TD) and JerMichael Finley (crapped the bed). Unfortunately, I started Finley in one of my Gronk leagues and lost by less than a point.
I’d never owned Finley before in my life. I now hate him like those of you who have.
It looked like Cook was on his way to a big day for his owners. Scored an early touchdown, finished the day with double-digit fantasy points in most PPR leagues. But he is done for the year now with a rotator cuff injury, so there’s one less option out there for Gronk owners now.
Scheffler still is a decent play and relatively unowned. Brandon Pettigrew is banged up and may not play this week, so there could be even more targets coming his way. Again, I’m on board with #teamscheff.
For those in deeper leagues, Tony Moeaki has a nice matchup against Oakland. Dwayne Bowe has been shut down for the year in KC, so Moeaki could emerge as the team’s go-to receiver in the red zone. Dallas Clark also is a solid option against New Orleans.
If you have any other waiver wire questions/comments, hit me up on the Twitter @TheHazean. Otherwise, good luck in the playoffs!
