Luke Musgrave Quiet In Divisional Round Loss

Sunday, January 21, 10:08 AM

Green Bay Packers tight end Luke Musgrave caught three of four targets for 14 yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The rookie actually had fewer targets than backup and fellow rookie Tucker Kraft but ended the night with more receiving yards. It brings an end to a solid rookie campaign from Musgrave. While he missed a six-game stretch at the end of the year due to a kidney laceration, the 23-year-old stepped right back into the starting role when he returned and immediately impacted the team's Wild Card win over the Dallas Cowboys. With so many mouths to feed in Green Bay, Musgrave will be tough to trust in fantasy as the lone option for any manager. However, he will remain a weekly streaming candidate off the waiver wire and carries more value in dynasty formats as a part of one of the best up-and-coming offenses in the league.

Brock Bowers Has To Earn A Starting Role

Wednesday, July 10, 1:31 PM

The Las Vegas Raiders did select rookie tight end Brock Bowers with the 13th overall pick in April, but he will have to earn a starting role in 2024. Bowers has a dynamic skill set as a pass-catcher and can line up as an in-line tight end, outside receiver or inside as a slot receiver. He has good hands, athleticism and speed, and is adept at picking up yards after the catch. The downside is that he's a little undersized at 6-foot-3, 243 pounds and was a questionable blocker in college at Georgia. Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy's run-first scheme asks a lot out of TEs in the run game, so Bowers will have to make strides there to stay on the field and hold off last year's second-rounder, Michael Mayer. Mayer isn't as explosive as Bowers, but he made substantial growth as a blocker last year and is a talented receiver in his own right. If they both stay healthy, Bowers has the much higher fantasy ceiling.
