Huddle Up: Gesicki has only been targeted seven times thus far. He has the size and athleticism to be a productive fantasy option at the position, but as is often the case with rookie tight ends, it is going to take some time. He only needs to be owned in keeper formats currently.

Huddle Up: Gesicki couldn't build off his three-catch performance in Week 3, and despite a lot of hype coming into the year, he appears best suited for keeper formats for now.

Huddle Up: Gesicki has just four catches through three games, but he had three of those for 31 yards in Week 3. He has the size and athletic ability to be a matchup nightmare, but he needs to be stashed on the bench until he shows some consistent production.

Huddle Up: Gesicki is a big, athletic target, but his quiet opener is a reminder that rookie tight ends rarely provide great fantasy value. He has enough upside to stash on your bench as a TE2, but you shouldn't expect consistent results.

Huddle Up: Fantasy owners would be thrilled if Gesicki was able to possess those types of traits. The rookie out of Penn State is turning heads in camp and the preseason, but still is only worth a look as a TE2 until further notice. He has a ton of upside, however, and is a great dynasty league addition.

Huddle Up: Gesicki needs to prove himself before we can give him serious credence. The talent is there, sure, but we can't consider him a starting fantasy tight end right now.

Huddle Up: This comes with the obvious caveat that depth charts released a month before the first game can usually be taken with a grain of salt. For example, Gesicki is in no danger of getting cut and has reportedly looked very good in camp. Drake should still be considered the favorite to lead this team in all rushing categories, but owners need to understand he will probably lose at least 100 to 150 touches to Gore, making him a bit of an untrustworthy RB2 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: While it is unreasonable to expect any rookie to be this year's Evan Engram, Gesicki is the most likely to do so. His receiving skills are already exceptional for a rookie, so his emergence this season figures to come down to whether or not he is making the strides as a blocker Day says he is. While rookie tight ends are notoriously bad bets in fantasy, Gesicki has the goods to be a top-20 fantasy tight end in 2018.

Huddle Up: If this is a topic of discussion in August, then Miami might have a problem. Until then, it is way too early to hit the panic button. Beasley admitted Gesicki flashed some of the talent in closed sessions that convinced the Dolphins to use a second-round pick on him. Given his relatively limited route tree at Penn State, it was always likely he would look lost right off the bat. Owners should still view him as a high-upside TE2 in redraft formats this summer as a tight end who should see plenty of work in the slot.

Huddle Up: Even if Gesicki needs a little time to develop as a blocker, his skills as a receiver should put him in TE2 territory immediately.
