Finally, there was some life!

Now don’t get too excited, it wasn’t great by any means. But someone finally was able to make some legitimate plays at this position (outside of the two happenstance Quarless TDs this year).

Richard Rodgers showed up for only the second time this year, grabbing 4 catches for 58 yards against New Orleans. It didn’t have a big impact in the game, but if he is out there making catches and getting open, it could mean good things for him doing so in situations that matter.

I’m definitely not all-in – or even close – with any of these guys, but Rodgers has been stepping up with his blocking ability and seeing more time on the field. More time out there could lead to more opportunities, and possibly more games akin to the Saints game.

Lucky for him, he is also matched up against the other team he made any noise against: Chicago. He made a huge deep catch in the first matchup, and I could see him getting used to exploit the middle of the field again here on a few occasions.

In a week when a lot of teams with startable TEs are on bye weeks (Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Gates, Dwayne Allen), this could be a potential pickup who may be getting involved in the offense at the perfect time of the year to help out fantasy players.

Prediction: 50 yards, TD (Rodgers); 10 yards (Quarless); 0 yards (Bostick)
Verdict: Bye-Week Flyer (Rodgers); Do Not Start (Quarless/Bostick)
