Greg Olsen came up big in the Monday nighter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Olsen saw 13 targets and was able to reel in 9 of them for 181 yards. It seemed like Tampa’s defense had no answer for Olsen while he quickly became Derek Anderson’s go to receiver. He had a career high in receiving yards and looked to be an elite tight end. Although he wasn’t able to pull down a touchdown due to a terrible decision by Anderson, he was able to have an extremely productive night. Fantasy owners should feel confident about Olsen’s production going forward.
Martellus Bennett has already began reaping the benefits of the return of Brady. I predicted earlier this season that the addition of Bennett would play big dividends for owners. During week 5 against the Browns, Bennett reeled in 67 yards and three touchdowns. The two tight end set is back in New England and it was very dangerous back when Brady previously had Gronk and Aaron Hernandez. Tom Brady has already found a rhythm with Bennett, and looks like they will hook up more in the future. Of course, there is a little bit of concern about targets and catches with Gronk being the number 1 tight end option but as of right now, Bennett is a must start.
Zach Ertz had three targets for three catches and 37 yards and zero touchdowns. Ertz is coming back from injury and did not play the past 2 games. Philadelphia seemed to distribute the ball in their offense and are slowly working Ertz into things. He has a favorable match up against the Washington Redskins in Week 6.
Waiver Wire: Charles Clay – Clay is one of the primary targets in the Buffalo Bills’ offense as Sammy Watkins has again caught a full dose of the injury bug. He caught five passes for 73 yards in the win over the Rams. In Week 6 he is going against a very suspect San Francisco secondary which the Bills can take advantage of.
DFS: Delanie Walker, He is going to have a great game against a Cleveland Browns’ defense that is a mess. Walker has not seen many targets on the past few weeks but that is due to injury. Against Miami in week 5, he had 66 yards for 1 touchdown. There is a ton on potential for Walker to have a huge game as he is one of Marcus Mariota’s go to targets.
