Week 7 vs. New York Giants
Richard Rodgers goes from third-string tight end to starting tight end in just a couple weeks. With Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert out now, he will see a lot of targets in an offense that loves throwing to the tight ends. Even before the injuries, Rodgers was getting playing time and has 10 targets over the last four games.
It's a tough matchup on Thursday as the Giants have been good against tight ends, ranked sixth in aFPA to the position. Rodgers is good depth, but only ranks a low-end TE2 for Week 7. If you pick him up, make it strictly for depth as Ertz should be back in the near future.
