Now, I consider myself somewhat of a fantasy football statistician. I want to peep you on the next big market inefficiency: guys with SJ in their initials. Here are three guys available in over 50% of Yahoo! leagues who could help you out this week at tight end (especially if you’re a Rob Gronkowski owner). The third guy, as of writing this, was available in 90% of Yahoo! leagues. By the time you read this, don’t be surprised if that’s much higher. Also I made up his middle initial to make this work, and I refuse to check to see if I am right or wrong about it.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins at Denver (50% owned)
My Large Adult Son, ASJ, has disappeared lately. He was a PPR monster for a while as he was the unluckiest touchdown guy ever. This week, with Robby Anderson banged up, he should be getting a big amount of targets back. The Broncos have allowed the second-most fantasy points to tight ends this season, including touchdowns to TEs in three of the last four games (and six of their last eight, too).
Ricky Seals-Jones versus Tennessee (34% owned)
The other *SJ this week that you can get to start for you is Ricky “Who is Ricky Seals-Jones” Seals-Jones. RSJ has three touchdowns in three games with Blaine Gabbert under center for the Cards, and averages 56.6 yards per game in the same span. That’s not a bad starting point. The Titans are a good matchup lately, as well. They’ve given up three straight 8+ fantasy point days to three of the most marginal tight end talents you can imagine (Jesse James, Jack Doyle and Stephen Anderson). Speaking of Stephen Anderson…
Stephen J. Anderson versus San Francisco (10% owned)
Twelve targets. Twelve! Targets! Seemingly out of nowhere, Stephen Anderson, a converted WR, became one of the focal points of the Texans offense. He turned those targets into 79 yards and a score. The Niners are middle-of-the-road on the season against tight ends, but that is from some early season dominance. They stink out loud against the position now, having allowed touchdowns to tight ends in six of the last seven games.
