Bucs make smart pick with Mike Evans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.


Expect to see a lot of Timothy Wright, Brandon Myers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) The Buccaneers will likely use both of their tight ends this season with Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers expected to split time and play in tandem, reports ESPN.

The report says "Wright did some nice things as a rookie last season, but Wright is limited as a blocker. That’s why the Bucs brought in Brandon Myers. He can contribute as a blocker and a receiver."

The Bucs aren't likely to use a fullback very often, which means there could be a lot of two-tight-end sets. 


Brandon Myers signs with Bucs


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The Buccaneers have signed free agent tight end Brandon Myers, reports ESPN. The deal is worth two years at $4 million.

Myers spent 2013 with the Giants and had 47 catches for 522 yards and four touchdowns.


Brandon Myers' contract voided


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Tight end Brandon Myers' contract with the Giants was among those voided Friday, according to USA Today. The move will save the team some cap space. 

Myers spent only 2013 with the G-men, totaling 522 catches and four scores on 47 catches. 


Report: Brandon Myers not expected to return


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/27/2014) Brandon Myers isn't expected to return to the Giants, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. Myers is a free agent after spending 2013 in New York, accumulating 47 catches for 522 yards and four touchdowns. 

Kevin Gilbride not high on Brandon Myers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said Brandon Myers might be best suited to be a No. 2 tight end, reports The Star-Ledger. Myers caught 47 passes for 522 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the team and is about to enter free agency.

It was a steep drop from his 2012 production in Oakland, when Myers caught 79 passes for 806 yards and four scores. The paper estimates there's a 40 percent chance Myers re-signs with the Giants.


Brandon Myers held out of end zone again


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers was held out of the end zone for the second straight game Sunday against the Lions in Week 16.

Myers still managed to be the team's second-leading receiver, as he finished the game with four receptions for 53 yards in a 23-20 overtime victory. He was targeted seven times.

The Giants will end the season at home against the Redskins in Week 17. He caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in his previous meeting against Washington in Week 13.

Lions may be a difficult matchup for Brandon Myers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers may have a hard time bouncing back on the road against the Lions in Week 16.

In a 23-0 loss Week 15 vs. Seattle, Myers saw his scoring streak come to an end, as he was held to only three receptions for 37 yards and no touchdowns. He has 41 catches for 460 yards and four touchdowns this season. Three of his four touchdowns have come over his last four games.

The Lions have only allowed a touchdown to a tight end once this season. No tight end has scored more than seven points over the last seven games against Detroit. Opposing tight ends are averaging 5.43 Fantasy points this season against the Lions. Consider Myers a low-end option in all formats for Week 16.

Brandon Myers' scoring streak ends at three games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers caught every pass thrown his way during a 23-0 loss Week 15 vs. Seattle. Sadly, it was just three passes that resulted in 37 yards and no touchdowns.

It was the first time in four games Myers failed to score a touchdown. Myers had one red zone target late in the game, but it resulted in a 5-yard reception from the 18-yard line.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Brandon Myers looking to keep scoring streak alive


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers has been one of quarterback Eli Manning's favorite targets lately, as evidence by Myers recording a touchdown in three straight games.

It will certainly be a challenge for Myers to extend his touchdown streak to four games Week 15 vs. Seattle, but tight ends have had some success against the Seahawks recently. In fact, tight ends have totaled four touchdowns in the last five games against Seattle, including one in each of the last two games.

For the season, however, tight ends average just 48.2 receiving yards and 6.3 Fantasy points per week against Seattle. Tight ends have totaled just five touchdowns in 13 games and only three tight ends have managed at least 10 Fantasy points against Seattle.

Myers might be able to get another touchdown Week 15, but he doesn't have great upside because of the matchup. He's at best a No. 2 Fantasy tight end.


Brandon Myers extends scoring streak in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers extended his scoring streak to three consecutive games during Sunday’s loss to the Chargers in Week 14.

Myers hauled in a 4-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Myers didn't make much noise outside of his touchdown grab and finished the game with four catches for 26 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.

Myers has 12 receptions for 126 yards over his three-game scoring streak. He'look to keep his streak alive in Week 15 at home against the Seahawks.

Injured New York players cleared for San Diego


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The following players were ruled active for the Giants in Week 14 against the Chargers in San Diego: tight end Brandon Myers (groin), and defensive backs Terrell Thomas (knee) and Trumaine McBride (groin).

Two Giants listed as probable


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Giants TE Brandon Myers and CB Terrell Thomas are probable Week 14 against the Chargers.

Myers did not practice due to a groin injury Thursday, but was able to return on a limited basis Friday. Thomas was limited Thursday and Friday due to a knee injury. 


Brandon Myers scores in second straight game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers, a dud most of the season, caught a touchdown pass Week 13 for the second straight game. Myers found himself wide open in the middle of the field for the 22-yard score at Washington.

Myers caught five passes for 61 yards, his highest totals since Week 2. He was targeted six times, second most on the team. Myers will try to keep it going Week 14 at San Diego.


Brandon Myers grabs first touchdown pass since Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers answered a touchdown from a more accomplished player at his position with one of his own Sunday in Dallas. Two minutes after Jason Witten scored in the third quarter, he did the same on a 27-yard pass from Eli Manning to launch a comeback that proved to be in vain.

Myers finished with 39 yards on three receptions. It was tied for his highest single-game catch total since Week 2. The touchdown was his first since the season opener.


Brandon Myers still irrelevant


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers heads into Week 12 vs. Dallas with three or fewer catches in eight straight games. He has not cleared 42 yards in any of those.

In the past five games, Myers has drawn 11 targets. Keep him away from your Fantasy lineups as usual.


Any value left for Brandon Myers?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers will be seeking a bounce-back game Sunday at home against the Packers in Week 11.

Myers endured his worst game of the season, as he earned 48 snaps and finished the game without a target. He caught 13 of 19 passes thrown his way for 140 yards and a touchdown through the first two games of the season. Since Week 2, he has been targeted 16 times and had only 10 receptions for 125 yards and no touchdowns.

Myers will face a Green Bay defense that has not permitted a touchdown to a tight end in the past three games. Opposing tight ends have scored 9.11 Fantasy points per game against the Packers this season. At this point, Fantasy owners have to be desperate to be starting Myers. Keep him on the bench in nearly all formats moving forward.

Brandon Myers doesn't even draw target Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers had arguably his worst game of the season Week 10 vs. Oakland. Myers finished without a catch for the third time this season, but he didn't even draw a target during Sunday's 24-20 win.

Myers has gone eight games without a touchdown since scoring in the opener. The Giants are back in action Week 11 vs. Green Bay.


Not time to put Brandon Myers back into Fantasy lineups


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) It's been seven games since Giants tight end Brandon Myers has scored a touchdown. Will his fortunes start to turn Week 10 vs. Oakland?

Tight ends have totaled five touchdowns in eight games against Oakland, including one each last week from Eagles tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek. Tight ends average 44 receiving yards and 7.5 Fantasy points per week.

While Myers got off to a promising start this season, he's been pretty unreliable for Fantasy owners since Week 3. Tight ends coach Mike Pope tried to explain Myers' decline in production.

"It’s taken him some time to learn this offense since he just showed up here," Pope said, per the team's official website. "I think we’re the fifth offense he’s had all the way back to college, because when [quarterback] Carson Palmer went out to Oakland, they kind of adapted what he had done in Cincinnati. It’s taken him a little bit of time to unlearn offenses he’s been in and we have a lot of option route running in our offense, and that’s something that just takes a number of reps."

Myers remains a risky Fantasy start, so consider him nothing more than a No. 2 option Week 10.


Brandon Myers totals three catches Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers managed more than two catches for the first time in five games Week 8 at Philadelphia. Myers totaled three catches for 42 yards during a 15-7 win.

Myers' longest catch went 27 yards and he was targeted four times. Myers had managed four catches for 50 yards in his previous four games. Still, he hasn't scored in his last seven games.

The Giants are on a bye Week 9 before return to action Week 10 vs. Oakland.


No need to start Brandon Myers Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) What has happened to Giants tight end Brandon Myers?

Through the first two weeks of the season, he was a relevant Fantasy option and his value was on the rise. Sadly, Myers has been in decline for several weeks and a re-emergence might not be on the horizon Week 8 at Philadelphia.

Tight ends average just 5.7 Fantasy points per week, which is the seventh-lowest average. Myers only had two catches for 35 yards in Week 5 against the Eagles. Tight ends average 62.4 receiving yards per week and have totaled no touchdowns in seven games against Philadelphia.

It's not hard to see where Myers' production is going. Giants quarterback Eli Manning has lately been throwing more to No. 3 receiver Rueben Randle, whose presence is cutting into Myers' numbers. Myers appears to be far more valuable to the Giants' cause than Fantasy owners right now, so consider him a poor Fantasy option Week 8.


Brandon Myers makes two catches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers caught two of his three targets for 15 yards against the Vikings. Myers has four catches in his past four games.

He'll visit the Eagles in Week 8.


Brandon Myers mired in prolonged slump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) Brandon Myers has a great matchup Monday night, against a Vikings team giving up the fourth-most Fantasy points (11.8 per game) to tight ends. But can the Giants' tight end exploit it?

The evidence says no. Myers has five catches in his last four games, including two outings in which he was shut out. Eli Manning targeted him nine times in that span after targeting Myers 19 times in the first two weeks.

In Week 7, Myers is no better than a TE2.


Brandon Myers shut out yet again in Week 6


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers was held without a reception for the second time in three games Thursday, in a 27-21 loss to the Bears in Week 6.

Myers, who dealt with an ankle injury during practice, did not figure much in the team's plans. He was targeted just once in the passing game, a pass he failed to bring in.

Myers has just two catches for 35 yards over the last three games. The Giants next game is set for Week 7 against the Vikings. 


Brandon Myers takes the field


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) Giants tight end Brandon Myers was able to play through an ankle injury in Week 6 against the Bears, despite being limited through the week in practice. Myers is active and in uniform for Thursday's game, after being listed on the injury report as questionable.
