PRESQUE ISLE, Me. (WAGM) Week one of the NFL has come and gone. Some people look at their roster and believe they have a contender while others may not be feeling so confident. My first piece of advice: cool thy jets. It's a long season and I'll be with you every step of the way. For better, like Tyrod Taylor, or for worse, like Charles Clay. Let me be clear, the guys I throw out during this minute aren't the superstuds like Todd Gurley or Antonio Brown, they're guys you can probably pick up off your waiver wire and plug in your flex. Let's get after it.
At quarterback, I went with him last week and I'm sticking with him! Tyrod Taylor ladies and gentlemen, pick him up and start him against the Saints defense, which gave up 400 yards to Ryan Fitzpatrick last week. Taylor only threw for 197 in the rain against Pittsburgh, but he ran for 77 yards as well. Pick him up!
Running back is tough. Do you dive in on a guy like Phillip Lindsay who had a big game in week one? I say NAY! If you're going to target someone who may still be available, get TJ Yeldon. If Fournette's hamstring keeps him out of the lineup Sunday, Yeldon will be carrying the workload. He had the most targets in the passing game last week and rushed for a team leading 51 yards after Fournette went down. If Fournette plays, keep Yeldon around, something tells me this isn't the last of Fournette's injury woes.
As a Pats fan, it hurts me to have a Jet on this segment, but this dude could have a monster rest of the season. Quincy Enunwa, his name is fun to say and he's racking up targets in a Sam Darnold led offense. The Jets are easing Darnold into the offense and that means very few deep shots. Enunwa is a possession receiving beast, as long as he stays healthy, he should be in your starting lineups.
Ugh, tight end. Charles Clay, et tu brute! Zero points! I trusted you! No matter, we move on. Tight end this week, I'd go after Ricky Seals-Jones of the Arizona Cardinals. Jared Cook diced up the Rams defense last week to the tune of nine receptions and 180 yards and RSJ has the tools to do the same...as long as Sam Bradford can get him the ball. Good thing about tight end, only way I can go is up.
