Another week, another option for fantasy managers desperately in need of a tight end.

This time around it’s the Broncos’ Greg Dulcich, who has caught the attention of our fantasy football experts. The UCLA product scored against the Chargers in Week 6 and followed it up in Week 7 with a 6/51/0 line on nine targets.

Is this the guy who can save sad Kyle Pitts owners? Read on below.

Sean Koerner: I have been talking up Dulcich for the past couple weeks. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 and has potential for more if/when Russell Wilson breaks out of his slump.

Samantha Previte: Who is the Broncos’ best tight end and why is it Greg Dulcich?

I seriously spent more time than I would like to admit learning how to pronounce Albert Okwuegbunam’s name ahead of the season. That ended up being a complete waste, as Okwuegbunam has just 50 yards in four games (and no touchdowns) and has been a healthy scratch the last two weeks.

Levity aside, Dulcich could be everything we hoped Albert O would be. I spoke about him in my lookahead waiver wire column on Friday after he shined in his rookie debut.

He caught 2-of-3 passes for 44 yards and a touchdown, finishing as the TE9 for the week in half-PPR scoring against the Chargers. The impressive rookie followed that up with a strong Week 7 against the Jets (in spite of Brett Rypien starting) and caught 6-of-9 passes for 51 yards. Dulcich could be Denver’s new TE1.

While that isn’t the most attractive prospect given how poorly the Broncos have played, Dulcich warrants attention, especially in deeper leagues, as this situation develops.
