3k covered the other tight end of choice in the morning, so I thought I'd give everyone a few hours to recuperate before dumping even more tight end goodness on TST. That's right; it's time for some Lance Kendricks action. I've still got to bring up the 'Lance Kendricks!? What the hell?" draft moment, but this guy is by far my favorite pick this year at this point. I'm probably going to sneak him onto my fantasy team as well.
Prediction fun lurks just beyond the void we call the jump.
If you would have asked this before the preseason started, I think the consensus would be Kendricks would have a rookie TE type year. Sure, in a two-TE system, he'll get more looks, but statistically it won't be anything great. After four preseason games, I'd say the exact opposite. Sam Bradford loves him and that means numbers. I know that is a lot to expect from a rookie, but so far he hasn't let us down.
Stats in the comments should be as follows:
receptions - yards - TD's
I'll be going with 46 receptions, 504 yards, 7 TD's.
