Never listen to experts. I listened to experts that said play the Steelers D. I should have gone with my gut and taken the Giants.

 

Yep. They are as risk-averse as they come, because most of the "safe" rankings seem to pan out, leading them to boost their "accuracy scores." Uncertain players that receive really high ranks are incredible for an expert's credibility, but the payoff isn't that great if those calls go wrong. And they don't always go right. You just have to analyze for yourself and make decisions instead of just blindly following Silva and Rotopat. 

 

You have to start Brate, he will catch a TD almost every week. That being said, I really hate this matchup for the Bucs...I'll be shocked if they even put up 17 pts.

What are the chances he can get us some points this week?  It's funny because I dropped Burton for Brate a few weeks ago and Brate has outplayed him up until last week.   I didn't really need Brate the last several weeks because I already had 1st place locked up and a bye.  Then last week in the semis when I needed Brate to do something, he does nothing and Burton catches a TD.  As fate would have it, the guy who scooped Burton up is the guy I am playing for the championship.

Well the good news is that you're not going to lose the championship because of TE play. 

 

Would suck if you had Brate/Burton and your opponent had kittle/kelce/ebron/ertz....(although mostly Kittle/Kelce lately).

 

Can't imagine more than 5 separating these dudes.  Brate is ONLY good for a TD. Even when he gets one, he's still relatively low scoring in the realm of TE's.

I'm likely starting him and just praying for a TD. There are only about 5 consistently high receptions TEs. After that it's sincerely a crap shoot. But the matchup isn't great. I think Winston is going to get roasted

...for sufficiently low values of "almost every week".
