In spite of his insistence that he’s stil

Dwayne Allen and Jordan Reed have been ruled out for Sunday and Charles Clay, Julius Thomas and Jared Cook are all questionable. For a position that was already thin a week ago, things have started to get even more complicated for anyone without a top tight end. In standard scoring, non-PPR leagues, only six tight ends are averaging over 8 points per game this year: Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas,

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
