That Helps No One Week 10: Zach Miller time(s) two


Every game, all season

On any given NFL weekend, many different players score touchdowns. Most of them are your standard fantasy football superstars, owned in every league. But others come out of nowhere to vulture touchdowns or beat a third-string cornerback repeatedly for a career-day. In fantasy, these are our That Helps No One champions. The players whose success leads to the imminent demise of countless fantasy teams. All season long, we'll be tracking and crowning a That Helps No One winner each week on NFL Fantasy LIVE. Below are the top candidates for Week 10. As you'll notice, all of the nominees are tight ends, as for some reason Week 11 of the 2015 NFL season belonged to random tight ends, whom most people probably didn't even know were on an NFL roster. Take a look for yourself.

Crockett Gillmore & Maxx Williams, TEs, Baltimore Ravens

When Steve Smith landed on injured reserve, we all knew someone would have to step up and catch passes for the Ravens. We hoped it'd be Kamar Aiken, who had a solid day in Week 10 with seven catches for 73 yards. Unfortunately, he was unable to get into the end zone because both of the main Ravens tight ends stole his touchdown opportunities. Welp.

Ed Dickson, TE, Carolina Panthers

WRONG TIGHT END, CAM! COME ON! Why couldn't you throw this touchdown to Greg Olsen to give him a stellar fantasy day? Instead, the touchdown and Dickson's three catches for 21 yards meant he was the top scoring tight end in Carolina ... by 0.1 fantasy points. Ugh.

Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears

OK, Zach, we get it. You like to make some fancy plays now and again. But stop it. Stop it right now. We need these fancy plays to go to Martellus Bennett, not a 31-yard-old journeyman tight end from Nebraska-Omaha. We're happy for you and all, but stop it. Please.

Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Detroit Lions

Calvin Johnson? No. Golden Tate? Nope. Eric Ebron? Nooooooope. Ameer Abdullah? HAHAHAHAHA. Despite that long list of the talented, fantasy-relevant playmakers on the Lions, Matthew Stafford decided this was the week to give Pettigrew a touchdown. Sigh.

Justin Perillo, TE, Green Bay Packers

Perillo honestly looks like the Packers ran a fan raffle, where the winner was plucked from Lambeau Field and thrust into the starting lineup of the Green Bay offense. Except Perillo actually played pretty well. And found the end zone. Over players like Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and James Starks. To quote the great Vince Lombardi, "What the hell's going on out here?"

Rhett Ellison, TE, Minnesota Vikings
