Dynasty: Dallas Goedert, TE Philadelphia Eagles


Recommended Posts

Im looking to grab him again (dropped him to make room after the injury)...as I have been playing musical TE all year.  Currently on Fant (after screwing up and giving up on Gronk a bit early and now regretting it and missing out on picking him back up).

The problem is being gunshy on some drops.  My depth is good...and holding only one handcuff at this point (B. Hill cuffing my Gurley).  Hard to drop a guy I know would be in line for the bulk of carries there as I have dropped some cuffs for depth and because of byes or other injuries and the next week the injury happens and I miss out on the pick back up.

So do I drop Hill...or one of my several WR3s parading as a WR 2 for me (Higgins, Chark, Parker, Fulgham).   Hill would be the easy drop for me in a way...if I had Chubb back already (who I just traded for).  As then I would have the depth at RB (Jacobs, Gurley, RoJo, Chubb, Lindsay)...and maybe Im overthinking it that Hill would even be the guy...hell, I don't know anymore this year.

Damn this is as AC as it gets.

The answer is yes, pick him up if he is still somehow on wires.

More of a complaint...yeah...I will probably pick him up...yes he is on the wire as injuries and bye weeks and shorter benches mean most do not have backup TEs on their roster

Hopefully they sit him through the bye week. No need to rush him back, the Cowboys are going to struggle for 10+ points this week.

Yeah, as much as I would love to have him back for this week, I would much rather have him get 100% for the stretch run. Even if he does play this week, it would likely be on a limited/snap count so he could be a dicey start regardless.

Will be active tomorrow. Now the question is how much he’ll play (limited snap count, etc.). Still, the matchup doesn’t get much better than Dallas.

Unless ya have Kelce or Kittle or Andrews as well, ya have to play him! I am putting him in over Engram if he is active

Yeah, I was slated to start a gimpy Fant at this point, so I’ll take my chances with Goedert. He must be close to 100%, otherwise you’d think Philly would sit him. They don’t need him tomorrow so he must be good to go.

Wow I'm torn now. Juicy Dallas matchup can go two ways: blowout then sit or limited pitch count cuz of a twinge....I've got jonuu  to start or Fant/burton to start. Obviously the ceiling is high with Goedert but the floor is much lower. Maybe I'm over thinking...

Doing the same...he was still on the wire (I think most thinking he would not be back til after the bye).  I let go of my depth in a concussed Lindsay to grab Goedert..

Wow as much as I am hurting at TE in the league where I have him and as much as I know this is somehow an important division game for Philly, I'd really they rather just sit him.  4 weeks is really pushing it for a HAS alone much less one with a fractured tibia involved too.  With the bye week coming up and Richard Rodgers playing pretty well the last couple weeks this just seems like a dangerous move.

It has been 5 weeks.

I agree they should have this game easily won and now reason to risk him with the bye week but since they activated him with that knowledge it might just be as simple as he's just to healthy to justify not activating.

Watched film of him running routes this week and he looked fine. I don't think they would activate him and make roster cuts if they didn't plan on using him in the game. Big-time upside, and he's going right in to my starting line-up.

That sucks a lot as my TE already played and I would have dropped him and rolled with Goedert, had there been any suggestion that playing was a possibility.  Everywhere I looked (and I tried) the talk was post bye.   I had a hard decision on waivers and this would have made things SO much easier.  Aarggh.  Fantasy Football.

I have Jonnu as well.  Think I will still go with him given the Cin matchup.  Tempted to start Goedert and Jonnu has been disappointing lately but it’s hard to tell how much Goedert plays.  Jonnu seems like the safer play although a lower ceiling

I’m not even sure I can name the Panthers or Falcons starting TE.

That's the info I was searching for, how he actually looked.

I will just say if you feel good about his health he's a must start . I get they could get a lead early and take the foot off the gas but would people who own a Kittle or Kelce type sit them if they just got activated from IR and was playing? I'm thinking no and IMO that's pretty close to the company a healthy Dallas Goedert has for me right now.

This is what a lot of people were saying about Saquon coming back from his HAS last year too (and of course remember the infamous dancing video with Saquon). It's just so so common for guys to come back in less than 6 weeks from this injury and end up playing poorly most of the rest of the year. 

I realize not all injuries are the same but CMC picked up a HAS a week earlier than Goedert and still isn't back yet, and that was without a tibia fracture on top of it and without a bye next week that could really give him the extra time to get it all sorted out.

Hayden Hurst has actually been solid and performed as well as any TE outside of Kelce, Kittle, Waller.  Just needed the roster spot with a combo of byes and injury.

And I'm high on Goedert.

I'm an Eagles fan, and there hasn't been a game this year where they could take their foot off of the gas. That's something I wouldn't bet on! ha!

I think the best move for the team would have been to let him get another couple weeks rest, but I guess he showed enough in practice this week that it just didn't seem necessary.

My other option is Gesicki, and I traded away Andrews knowing I would be riding Goedert the rest of the season, so keep that in mind.

Did not expect this news.  Ugh.  After last week, I picked up Rodgers everywhere I could.  I wonder if this makes him irrelevant?  May just roll with Rodgers regardless, and hope there's enough to go around, fantasy-wise.

This was from  Profootballdoc on 10/28 and it does lower my expectations a little for this week:

Dallas Goedert Progressing in Return from IR

Dallas Goedert was seen back at practice today and he was moving relatively well. By limited video he was running with a slight hitch in his gait on his injured left ankle.  He is still progressing much better than expected and while he could see limited duties this week he will be likely be full go for week 9(whoever wrote that obviously did not know the bye week)

I didn't see a hitch in his gait, and literally no beat writers in Philly mentioned a hitch in his gait.

With that said, if you have other quality options it wouldn't hurt to wait and see.

Also, the video I watched was from Thursday's practice (10/29)

Same boat.  Not sure what to do.

Stunned that he's playing... I already started Hayden Hurst so right now it's a matter of putting him in my 2nd flex... I have Joshua Kelly @ Denver, Sterling Sheperd vs. Tampa Bay, and Trey Burton @ Detroit. They could blow out Dallas w/o Goedert and I'm worried they only play him limited snaps, but at least I can wait on the decision since I have late game options.

Profootballdoc said the same thing about Miles Sanders before he came back in week 2.   I didn't see a hitch at all there either.  When Sanders returned, there he looked 100%.

I'm shocked as well but he has to be real close to 100% if not 100% to be going out there imo.

Biggest challenge here is it’s the sunday night game.  Probably need some insurance either with rodgers or Schultz.  Probably not worth trying to get a tb or nyg backup te.

I have Gronk too so I'm set.  However, I still think Gronk is the better play this week.

I’ve also got Gronk. Thinking of starting Dallas and Gronk now. Would be starting Dallas over claypool or john brown. 

Dallas AND Gronk?  Interesting.  I'd have to bench someone like Jefferson, Zeke, or Gio so don't think so.  I did take a hit with Moore on Thursday so need to figure out best upside which is probably Goedert actually...

This might be an ignorant question, but does activating him mean he's 100 percent playing Sunday night? They made corresponding moves to get him on the roster, correct? So he wouldn't suddenly be inactive unless something happened in warm-ups? 

I have Rodgers and Goedert, and could ditch Rodgers now for a speculative pickup. But if there's any chance Godert wouldn't play, I don't want to be caught with a zero. Maybe I don't totally understand the three-week IR. The move means Goedert will definitely be active Sunday night? Thanks.

They cut their other TE, Hakeem Butler as a corresponding move. I think that's a clear indication Goedert is playing.

The big thing for people with Goedert is... a) what do you need? b) what are you expecting? If you need just 4-5 points from you TE/Flex and you have good options... yeah maybe give Goedert the night off. But if you need a 10+ FP and your pickings are slim, sure start him. I just worry about him being so limited early and then Dallas gets behind so fast they decide to give him the night off after 2 quarters.

 

I mean, they have Richard Rodgers who went 6/85 last week. They could decide to run a lot more 1 TE sets now that they have receivers again. Would they? Not likely but again we aren't sure. We'll find out tomorrow.

I agree with what you've said and, basically, this is why I expected him to sit until after the bye.  I guess it suggests that they think is 100%.
