Was this the play in the endzone? It looked to me like he was going to be the target on that play, but his feet got tangled up with a defender and he stumbled so Rodgers aborted that and threw the ball away basically.
No, I was referring to a running play earlier in the 3rd(?) Quarter. Some outside run to the left. Don't remember much else about the play now at this point

I'm kind of confused why you wouldn't care if this were a standard league. Landing next year's Julius Thomas was just as valuable in standard leagues, and a guy like Bostick is playing in an equally pass-heavy offense with an equally good QB.
Because I feel this Bostick is still a long shot. For me it's about the likelihood of your lottery ticket hitting versus the payoff you get if it does hit. I'm in many standard PPR league where TE's carry little value unless it's Gronk/Graham. The market for even Julius/Cameron is pretty cold. If I'm holding on to a long shot, then when he comes through he still doesn't carry a ton of value then I feel I can find a better gamble. In the TE premium leagues I'm in, TE's that normally carry 0 value can net you a return in a trade. Therefore, Bostick wouldn't have to become a top tier TE for him to gain considerable value in this type of league.

He looked good today, more confident than he did last week and put up respectable numbers. 3/3 42 yards and 1TD.

Now is the time to stash this guy for free and maybe he goes J Thomas on everyone next year!!!

Glad I had him stashed after the Finley injury- yesterday was very promising.

He could go J Thomas this year! There schedule the rest of the way doesn't have anything that I'd call a formidable defense on it:

Week 11 - Giants
Week 12 - Vikings
Week 13 - Lions
Week 14 - Falcons
Week 15 - Cowboys
Week 16 - Steelers

Cobb is coming back soon, but I think Bostick could flourish considering Aaron Rodgers won't be back for a little while, which might make Bostick Tolzien's safety blanket.

Anyone watching the packers game? I would love to hear some updates from the game about Bosticks playing time and how he looks.

Bostick looked amazing on his one target, making the catch and moving down the sidelines through defenders for a 26 yard gain.

Of course, Quarless looked pretty decent in his limited chances too.

I guess we'll have to wait until he gets a decent QB to really assess his chances.

If you haven't already picked up Bostick, what are you waiting for, you might want to get on that. This story's making the rounds:

Fontenot compared Bostick's physical talents to Denver tight end Julius Thomas, who played basketball at Portland State for three years before giving football a try. It has taken Thomas two years to get on the field, but in his third season he has 45 catches for 590 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Coming out of college, Thomas ran a slower 40-yard dash time than Bostick (4.64 seconds to 4.59), had a lower vertical jump (35.5 inches to 36) and put up 225 pounds on the bench fewer times (16 to 19). Thus, it's pretty clear the Packers are going to be patient with Bostick because the payoff could be pretty rich.
Those are some nice stats.
I picked him up cheap, dropped him because I was impatient, but picked him back up again after he scored a TD. Strong hold and promising.

I'm serious when I say he is the next Thomas. I was fortunate enough to grab Julius when he was on waivers in each and every one of my leagues and he was considered 3rd on the Denver depth chart. This kid is next. The Packers like promoting from within and won't fill the spot via FA. I doubt Finley is back as well.

Already own him in my premium TE league.

Picked him up (drafted in one) in both my TE prem leagues, and locked up for 5 years in a contract league

Very hopeful

I got him as well, and am willing to ride it out, picked him up for a buck.

I really like picking up these TE, and watching them grow up.

I have Jimmy,
picked up JT and traded for an early 2014 1st, then picked up Reed on FA, now Bostick.

Basically owe it all to this forum too. :dance:

Only was able to grab him on 1 of my 4 money leagues, but it was the league where I needed the most long term TE help. I've had him stashed since the Finley injury. We've seen how almost any WR/TE can excel in GB and I think Bostick will be no exception if given the shot.
