Jeff Cumberland: Week 6 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 9, 2013

Cumberland saw a slightly expanded role last week against Atlanta, as he played nearly 70 percent of the offensive snaps and responded with three catches for 79 yards and a score. With Geno Smith's options limited, he'll likely look to Cumberland up the seam again this week, but the Steelers will certainly have taken note of his success there on the game tape. He remains a lower-end TE option until he proves a reliable contributor.
Pittsburgh's allowed tight ends to gain just 192 yards with no touchdowns through four games, and Cumberland has to contend with fellow tight end Kellen Winslow for touches, which never helps. Still, he's clearly got pass-catching talent that has the potential to be fantasy-relevant in the long run. For now, he's a speculative add for deeper leagues, but isn't worthy of starting in the vast majority of fantasy formats yet.
