Tanner Hudson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow said recently that his offense should be ready to use more varied formations this season after some personnel changes. New OC Dan Pitcher highlighted TE as a position group he likes.

The Bengals grabbed Arizona TE Tanner McLachlan in the sixth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. A no-star recruit from Canada, McLachlan started his college career at FCS-level Southern Utah. His four years there included just 15 catches and a 2020 torn ACL. McLachlan missed the entire 2021 season and then transferred to Arizona. He turned in two productive seasons for the Wildcats, posting 34-456-2 and 45-528-4 receiving lines and passing Rob Gronkowski as the school’s all-time leader in receptions by a TE. McLachlan is a 6’5, 244-pounder and earned a solid 7.66 Relative Athletic Score at the Combine, highlighted by a 4.61-second 40 time. He’s a smooth athlete with reliable hands, but his route running needs refinement. That’s a bigger concern considering McLachlan is already 25 years old. He joins fellow rookie TE Erick All in Cincinnati, along with TEs Mike Gesicki, Tanner Hudson, and Drew Sample. It’s a fine landing spot, but McLachlan is well off the redraft radar and isn’t an exciting dynasty target.

The Bengals added Iowa TE Erick All in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. All’s college career was marred by injury. He needed spinal surgery in 2022 and then tore his right ACL this past October. He flashed at two different schools when he was healthy, though. All tallied 38 catches and 437 yards for Michigan in 2021 – both marks ranking second on the team. Then he led Iowa with 299 receiving yards this past year, despite missing the final seven games with that knee injury. In fact, All accounted for a whopping 36.6% of Iowa’s receiving yards in his seven outings. His 2.62 yards per route ranked third among 81 TEs with 30+ targets. Durability is a legitimate concern, but All is an intriguing sleeper in this rookie TE class. Landing with QB Joe Burrow only adds to that sleeper appeal. All joins Mike Gesicki, Drew Sample, and Tanner Hudson in what should be a pretty wide-open TE room this summer. We’ll see who earns snaps.

Bengals TE Irv Smith is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Steelers. He's totaled four catches on six targets over the last five games, so there's very little fantasy impact here. Perhaps TE Tanner Hudson picks up a few extra routes.

Bengals TE Irv Smith (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. Tanner Hudson stepped in for Smith as Cincinnati’s lead pass-catching TE last week, catching two of four targets for 30 yards. Hudson would be a desperation Week 4 fantasy play.

Giants TE Daniel Bellinger (eye) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. TEs Tanner Hudson and Lawrence Cager split work last week. Avoid the situation in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

The Giants didn't ask QB Daniel Jones to do too much in Sunday's win over the Texans. They dropped him back just 23 times vs. 44 team rushing attempts. Jones took 3 sacks but went 13 of 17 passing for 197 yards (11.6 per attempt) and 2 TDs. He found WR Darius Slayton for a 54-yard score in the 3rd quarter and TE Lawrence Cager for a 9-yard TD. Jones added 24 rushing yards on 5 attempts. He's had just 1 other game of fewer than 21 pass attempts all season and had thrown 27+ passes in 4 straight before the Houston game. Expect a rebound in passing volume, though Week 11 holds another positive rushing matchup with Detroit. Slayton (3-95-1) and TE Tanner Hudson (3-24) were the only Giants to catch more than 2 balls vs. the Texans.

Giants TE Daniel Bellinger (eye) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. TE Tanner Hudson ran a route on 83% of pass plays and drew 5 targets (16% share) in New York’s last game. He’s worth a look in DFS tournaments, but you should be able to do better in season-long fantasy lineups.

Daniel Jones went 17-of-31 (54.8%) passing for 176 yards and 0 TDs in Sunday's loss at Seattle. He added just 20 yards on 6 rushes in a game where the Giants couldn't get anything going against a surging defense. Jones took 5 sacks, the 3rd time this year he has reached that number. He did avoid turning the ball over, though, his 5th such game among 8 this season. WR Darius Slayton led the receivers in targets (6), receptions (5) and yards (66). TE Tanner Hudson (3-58 on 5 targets) was the only other Giant to eclipse 15 yards. WR Wan'Dale Robinson managed just 2 receptions for 15 yards on 3 targets. The Giants get their bye in Week 9.

Giants TE Daniel Bellinger (eye) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. The rookie is expected to miss multiple weeks after undergoing surgery this week to repair a fractured eye socket and septum. New York is down to Chris Myarick and Tanner Hudson at TE.

Giants TE Daniel Bellinger will undergo surgery this week to repair a fractured eye socket and septum, according to the New York Post's Paul Schwartz. It's not believed to be a season-ending injury, per Schwartz, but expect Bellinger to miss multiple games. The rookie had emerged as a significant part of New York's passing game, drawing 16 targets over his last 4 healthy games. His absence will leave New York with TEs Chris Myarick and Tanner Hudson -- and free up a few more targets for RB Saquon Barkley and WR Wan'Dale Robinson.
