FF Targets – Tight End

HIGH_HEAT2[300x250]

Up until last year, The tight end position was a FF scarcity position. If you didn’t draft Antonio Gates, Jason Witten, or Dallas Clark, you were stuck with Alge Crumpler or Heath Miller. This year is much different. You can make the case to draft a TE in the 1st Round.

 

Here are some Tight Ends to target this year, followed by a great Steak Fajita Marinade & Recipe.

 

Rob Gronkowski, Patriots

The Gronk is the best TE in all of football. I drafted him in the 9th round last year. This year, you can bet he gets drafted within the top 20. If he falls below that, you better pick him and consider yourself lucky.

 

Jimmy Graham, Saints

If you can’t get the big gronkowski, get the next best thing. Brees and Brady love to go to these guys in the red zone, and getting consistent points out of your TE slot is worth the high draft pick.

 

Antonio Gates, Chargers

He has plenty of upside. Because he is a household name, you may not get him where he deserves to be drafted, the middle rounds.

 

Aaron Hernandez, Patriots

The only issue is if there are enough balls to go around in the patriots offense. Aaron will catch his fair share and is a lock to start every week, especially in a PPR league.

 

Vernon Davis, 49ers

This guy is borderline unguardable. Age and injuries are starting to catch up with him, but you cannot go wrong to wait and draft him as your TE1.

 

Jermichael Finley, Packers

Just because of Rodgers throwing him the ball makes him TE1 worthy.

 

Fred Davis, Redskins

My league is made up of players in the DC Metro Area. All of them know this guy by now, and most of them are Redskins fans. I do not see him dropping to where I feel comfortable drafting him. If he does, I am sure to draft him.

 

Kyle Rudolph, Vikings

The second year player is a nice option in the Vikings offense. If you don’t get one of the big 3, wait and grab.

 

Coby Fleener, Colts

He may not be your in your starting lineup this year, but if you are in a keeper league, you have to draft him. He was Luck’s safety valve at Stanford, and will be again in Indy. Who know’s? you might have some great weeks with him come playoff time.

Beef Fajitas & Marinade

 

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups light soy sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
8 tablespoons ( 1/2 cup) fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons ground ginger

(3) skirt steaks (about 3/4-inch thick) 4 to 6 ounce portions
warm flour tortillas
John’s Pico de Gallo

 

PREPARATION:

Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and onion powders, lemon juice and ginger in jar; shake to mix well and dissolve sugar.

Let marinade stand in sealed jar overnight. Reserve about 1 cup.

Pour remainder over beef and marinate, covered, 2 hours or overnight in refrigerator.

Remove beef from marinade and grill over very hot coals for a short time; it should take only about 10 minutes per steak if meat is 3/4-inch thick or less.

Brush meat with reserved marinade two or three times while cooking.  Chop meat with a cleaver into bite-size pieces.

Fold into warm flour tortillas and serve with pico de gallo.

Makes about 1 quart marinade.

The secret to tender fajitas is a hot fire and short cooking time.

Meat should be no more than 3/4-inch thick.

Flank steak, boneless sirloin, tenderized round steak,  or boneless chicken breasts or chunks may be substituted for skirt steak.
