Daniel Bellinger
Lawrence Cager and Theo Johnson Candidates to Earn More Targets
3 weeks ago

Per ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, tight ends Theo Johnson and Lawrence Cager are competing to earn more targets after the retirement of Darren Waller.

The biggest takeaway from this report is the omission of Daniel Bellinger as a candidate to earn more targets. Bellinger was the presumed starter when Darren Waller retired, however recent reports have been far from positive. Bellinger appears to be in a battle for playing time with rookie Theo Johnson, and converted wide receiver Lawrence Cager.

 

Fantasy managers should take fliers on the Giants’ tight ends in dynasty leagues, but the depth chart is a mess. While Johnson and Cager could be more fantasy relevant, Bellinger will earn plenty of playing time as a blocker. With a solid group of pass catchers at the receiver position too, it is unlikely any of these players are consistently fantasy relevant in 2024. Johnson and Bellinger should both be owned in deeper dynasty fantasy football leagues.
