Lance Kendricks caught four passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Buccaneers. The majority of his stats came on an 80-yard scoring play to open up the third quarter, breaking a tackle after Sam Bradford spotted him wide open down the seam.
Kendricks is seeing more targets late in the year. He now has three touchdowns over the last five games.
Fantasy Impact: It's not quite the time to declare him a fantasy starter, but if you're looking for value at tight end in deeper leagues, Kendricks may be worth a look. He has seen at least five targets in each of his last four outings.
After being pegged as a sleeper in the last two offseasons, Kendricks might actually become a worthy starter next year.
