Why not? With Tua under center, Gesicki now has 40+ yards and 6+ fantasy points in three consecutive games. Maybe that wont jump off the stat sheet, but I imagine there are few TE's in the league that can actually say that about the last three weeks. Update: I just checked. The full list of TE's with at least 40 yards in their last three games: Travis Kelce, Mike Gesicki. That’s it. That is the list. Even if Tua sits this one out, I like Gesicki's chances of beating his ESPN projection of 9.5 points against a Jets defense that has given up seven TD's (tied for second-most) to opposing TE's this season.

Sit of the week: Jonnu Smith vs Indianapolis Colts
Smith has come back to life recently, with a TD in each of his last three games. So, I'll admit this one feels a bit risky. But against an Indy defense (that he only managed two catches for 14 yards against just two weeks ago) that has given up the fifth-fewest fantasy points to TE's this season... I foresee a dud on the horizon.
