Lawrence Cager and Theo Johnson Candidates to Earn More Targets
2 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.

Daniel Bellinger's Roster Spot in Jeopardy?
3 weeks ago

Respected New York media reporter Connor Hughes indicated that Daniel Bellinger may not be a lock to make the final roster

In a surprising twist Connor Hughes from SNY indicated on social media that Daniel Bellinger isn’t a lock to make the Giants’ final 52 player roster. This would be a shock considering the recent retirement of Darren Waller. Bellinger is competing for the starting tight end role with Theo Johnson and Jack Stoll.

 

While I expect Bellinger to make the final roster this is an eye-opening revelation from a respected media member. He could very well end up as the starter, but Johnson may be closer in the competition than most people realized. This will be a position battle to watch this Summer, but neither is a lock to be fantasy relevant even if given the opportunity.

Theo Johnson Raises Eyebrows at NFL Combine
4 months ago

Following a prolific pipeline of tight ends at Penn State, Theo Johnson delivered in every way at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Standing at 6 feet 8 inches and weighing nearly 260 pounds, tight end Theo Johnson exceeded expectations—and then some—at the 2024 NFL Combine on Friday. While he ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash among all tight ends, clocking in at 4.57 seconds, Johnson actually tied for the fastest 10-second split at the position (10.55 seconds). Combine that with a 10’5” broad jump, a 39.5-inch vertical jump, and the fastest TE shuttle time (4.19), and you have as explosive a 6’8, 259-pound athlete as you will see.

 

 

Despite his lackluster counting statistics during his senior season for the Nittany Lions (32 total catches for 325 yards), Johnson has also proved himself as a tremendous blocker and had a massive impact on the offense. 

 

 

If the track record of Penn State tight ends in the NFL – including Mike Gesicki, Jesse James, and Pat Freiermuth – didn’t serve as enough optimism for Johnson’s future prospects, his prolific testing at the combine certainly does. Every year in fantasy football, there is a tremendous drop-off after Travis Kelce in the tight-end hierarchy. Inconsistent names like George Kittle, Kyle Pitts, and Dallas Goedert have previously attempted to establish themselves as TE2. Perhaps Theo Johnson, who has NFL scouts and fantasy owners drooling after his absurd combine testing – is primed to fill that role.
