New York Giants TE Will Tye finish with two catches for 12 yards
and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, but his
relative lack of production still had QB Eli Manning singing his
praises. 'We?ve got to find ways to keep getting him the ball
because he is a strong weapon for us,' Manning said.
Huddle Up: Lo and behold, the Cleveland Browns' league-worst defense against
tight ends is next on the schedule for New York. Tye was a
second-half stud for owners last year and this year could be a
repeat of that as the Giants look for another weapon beside
Sterling Shepard to take advantage of all the attention Odell
Beckham Jr. is receiving. Tye should be scooped up wherever
available and started this week and makes for a low-cost, high-
upside play in DFS as well.

New York Giants TE Will Tye hauled in five receptions for 53
yards in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday,
Nov. 14. He was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: Tye remains nothing more than a streaming option as a bye week
replacement. The Giants host the Bears in Week 12.

New York Giants TE Will Tye is the favorite to start at tight end over TE Larry Donnell, in the opinion of NJ.com's Dan Duggan. TE Matt LaCosse is also expected to compete for the starting job.
Huddle Up: Tye emerged in Donnell's injury absence in the second half of last season, but the best guess right now is that a full-blown TEBC develops and no one N.Y. TE becomes fantasy useful in the majority of leagues.

New York Giants TE Will Tye 'caught everything' that came in his
direction and 'showed remarkable consistency for a second-year
player' during organized training activities and minicamps,
according to Giants.com's John Schmeelk.
Huddle Up: The Giants have received consistently solid fantasy production
from their tight ends despite not having devoted much in the way
of resources to the position. Tye will have to hold off Larry
Donnell for playing time, but he flashed skills last season and
has plenty of advantages working in his favor--namely that
defenses will be focused on Odell Beckham Jr., and the Giants
lack a solid red zone running presence so will throw plenty in
that area of the field.

New York Giants TE Will Tye's pass-catching potential and athleticism make him the favorite to start at tight end in 2016 for the Giants, in the opinion of Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. TEs Larry Donnell, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams will also be competing.
Huddle Up: Tye came on at the end of last season with at least 100 PPR-league points in five of his last seven games, and with Donnell's health and and the youth and inexperience elsewhere on the TE depth chart, definitely don't rule out Tye being the man again in 2016.
