How is a Tight End like a Putter?

The saying in golf is, “drive for show, and putt for the money.” Many people don’t know this, but this saying applies to football too. A team can have a great drive and make it to the red zone—their “green.”

When a football teams line up on 3rd and goal, they are going to target their “putter.”

Teams target their tight ends in these situations because they create mismatches, and Tight Ends will “putt for the money,” convert and get the touchdown for their team.

Picks for Week 5:

1. Jordan Reed

2. Greg Olsen

3. Kyle Rudolph

4. Jimmy Graham

5. Rob Gronkowski
