Gary Barnidge ($6400) Browns @ Seahawks – Barnidge has at least 5 catches and 50+ yards the last four weeks and is the only consistent receiving option in Cleveland no matter which quarterback is currently starting. The Seahawks defense has come alive the past few weeks and really only show weakness in one single area, covering the tight end. Barnidge’s price is up there among the top tight ends but if the Browns do anything offensively this week it will be in the middle of the field.
Rob Gronkowski ($8500) Patriots vs. Titans – Gronk looked healthy in his return from a knee injury last week and immediately found the end zone. The Titans are in the bottom five for points allowed to tight ends and now face the best in the game at a time that Brady really needs him. The Patriots continue to lose players to injury and Brady will look towards Gronk as much as he can until Julian Edelman returns. Gronk is hard to pay up for but this seems like an easy week to target him.
