Pharaoh Brown Active Against Jets

Sunday, January 7, 12:21 PM

Despite being listed as questionable to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against the New York Jets on Sunday, New England Patriots tight end Pharaoh Brown (ribs) is active. It's notable mainly because starting tight end Hunter Henry (knee) will close out the year with his third straight absence. With Henry still out, the 29-year-old Brown should have a bigger role in the passing attack, although he's going to share valuable snaps with fellow tight end Mike Gesicki. At best, Brown will be a low-cost, touchdown-dependent, low-upside DFS play at the tight end position in a meaningless game. Brown hasn't caught more than two passes in any game this year and has a total of just 12 receptions for 208 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets all season.

Johnny Mundt Stays Busy In Loss To Lions

Monday, January 8, 1:23 PM

Minnesota Vikings tight end Johnny Mundt had an elevated role yet again in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with T.J. Hockenson (knee) out. The 29-year-old had season-highs in catches (five) and receiving yards (58) while drawing six targets. His 58 receiving yards finished second on the team behind receiver Justin Jefferson's 192 yards. In Week 17, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the year. Fellow tight end Josh Oliver also had two receptions for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss. Mundt will be venturing into free agency this March as he heads into his eighth season in the NFL. He'll be competing for a backup role with whichever organization he ends up signing with. Mundt had 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards and one touchdown in 17 games in 2023.
