Dallas Goedert Posts Another Disappointing Performance

Sunday, October 1, 8:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught two of four targets for 25 yards during the team's 34-31 overtime win over the Washington Commanders. While the matchup was terrible on paper for the 28-year-old tight end, 2023 has not been a fun ride overall for fantasy managers. Goedert has caught 13 of 19 targets for just 88 yards through four games, averaging just 6.8 yards per reception. For context, the sixth-year tight end caught 16 of 20 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown through the first four games last season. The matchup for Goedert doesn't get any better next week, as the Rams' defense is top-tier against fantasy tight ends thus far in 2023. It would be best to look for a different option until the Eagles can find a way to involve their talented tight end properly.

Sam LaPorta Puts Up 56 Yards In Win

Thursday, September 28, 11:47 PM

Detroit Lions tight end Sam LaPorta caught four of his five targets for 56 yards in the Thursday Night Football win over the Green Bay Packers. It wasn't a massive boom performance for the rookie tight end, but it should keep fantasy managers in PPR leagues afloat ahead of the full Week 4 slate. LaPorta has seen at least five targets in all of his contests, which is more than can be said about a large chunk of the available tight ends on the waiver wire. He is a must-start in all matchups after being the fantasy TE2 through the first three weeks of the season.
