Every week during the season NFL Network and NFL.com Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano joins Sports360AZ.com’s Brad Cesmat to share his insight on building and developing your fantasy team for success.

Here are some hi-lights from our most recent conversation (September 16th) with the Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association Hall of Famer.

Is Pierre Garcon a sign-able option in PPR leagues?  “Yes, no question about it. Remember this is a guy who had a huge season two years ago. [He] had over 100 catches, was a leader in targets—or right up in the top three in targets at wide receiver and now with DeSean Jackson out several weeks, Garcon is going to be the top option in the passing game, at least you would think, for Kirk Cousins.”

Same for Jordan Reed?  “It’s also good news for Jordan Reed who should also be picked up. When Reed played and was healthy he’s good—the problem is he’s always hurt. So while he’s healthy…he’s on the radar now as a number one tight end—probably on the lower end of that number one tier.”

Will the tight end class continue to perform as we’ve seen early in the season?  “Ya’ know it was the weakest position, at least we all thought. We’ve had breakout games from [Tyler] Eifert, Ladarius Green…so it breeds optimism. Maybe the position isn’t as weak as we thought it was going to be. You know I liked Eifert a lot going into the season. There’s a lot of good young tight ends. Now, don’t expect that every week but Eifert needs to be rostered right now…be quick to get on the waiver wire and pick these guys up because they will not be there long.”
