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.

Trey McBride Caps Off Outstanding Season With A Score

Monday, January 8, 1:11 AM

In the final chapter of Arizona Cardinal Trey McBride's breakout season, the second-year tight end showcased his prowess with three receptions on six targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-20 loss to the Seahawks. McBride's elevated usage, especially after Zach Ertz's injury in Week 7, turned him into quarterback Kyler Murray's go-to target, culminating in 69 receptions, 655 yards, and three touchdowns over the last 10 games. His performance against Seattle was no exception, as he secured the lone touchdown pass from Murray in the game. As fantasy managers look ahead to 2024, McBride's consistent production and chemistry with Murray make him a promising option in the often-scarce tight-end landscape.
