Personally, I like the matchup of Finley against SD better than Gronk against the Giants and so I would roll with Finley myself. The Giants are allowing the 2nd fewest fantasy points per game to TEs and Hernandez is the guy to start this week in New England anyway. San Diego, on the other hand, is in the bottom third in the league against the TE and Finley doesn't have to fight another TE for looks. San Diego is excellent at taking away the opposing team's WR1 so Finley could see plenty more looks this week.

I'd also roll with VJax as well. Green Bay is one of the worst in the NFL at stopping WR1s and their defense is having a hard time containing the pass this season so I'd roll there for sure.

I like Gronk over Finley 100%. Finley been inconsistent so far and Gronk could see some extra targets with Welker and Hernandez banged up. Between VJax and Austin it is very close but I'd lean towards VJax because the Chargers likely will be throwing a lot more than the Cowboys because they will have to throw to try to keep up with GB.

I'd go Finley and Vjax. You never know what you're gonna get out of NE tight ends and SD is gonna have to throw the ball if they want to stay in it.

Lend a hand?

Finley and V Jax imo.

I think Finley is the superior TE, and I can't trust Austin over V Jax so long as the Cowboys keep babying Romo.

Thanks for the help with mine.

Finley hasn't been consistent this year so go with Gronk and I like all WR vs. Seattle this week so Austin it is.

I really like VJax this week but I have the same TE dilemma and am reading your responses.
