With Zach Ertz ruled out for the season and Dallas Goedert set to miss a couple of weeks with an injury, which TE’s can step up and produce for your fantasy teams?
1. Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs. Chargers
Travis Kelce leads all TE’s in touchdowns, receptions, and yards and is poised for another massive fantasy performance against the Chargers.
2. Mark Andrews, Ravens vs. Panthers
Mark Andrews has been injured the past couple of weeks but he will return as Lamar Jackson’s #1 target against a Panthers defense that ranks close to last in pass defense.
3. George Kittle, 49ers vs. Cardinals
George Kittle only had 1 reception for 21 yards last weekend. However, just on pure talent, Kittle is bound to go off for 100+ yards at some point and it could be on Mondy night.
4. T.J. Hockenson, Vikings vs. Cowboys
T.J. Hockenson is coming off of an 11.5 fantasy point game and he would have scored more had he not been taken out of the game for concussion protocol. Hockenson has a lot of upside but is also one of the safer options at the TE position this weekend against the Cowboys.
5. Tyler Higbee, Rams vs. Saints
Tyler Higbee’s production over the past 4 weeks (only one game over 3.5 fantasy points) is concerning, but even without Matthew Stafford, Higbee put up 15.3 fantasy points against the Cardinals and should have a larger target share without Cooper Kupp this weekend.
6. Cole Kmet, Bears vs. Falcons
Cole Kmet is coming off of two straight 22+ fantasy point performances where he pulled in 2 touchdowns in both of them. With Justin Fields turning into a superstar right in front of our eyes, Kmet has turned into one of Fields’ favorite targets and that shouldn’t change against the Falcons.
7. Dalton Schultz, Cowboys vs. Vikings
Dalton Schultz has scored a total of 20.8 fantasy points in his last two games and is one of Dak Prescott’s favorite targets. In what should be a high scoring game, Schultz remains an elite TE1 this weekend against the Vikings.
8. David Njoku, Browns vs. Bills
David Njoku has been out the past couple of weeks and has only appeared in 6 games this season. Of those 6 games Njoku has had over 14 fantasy points in 3 of them and hasn’t had a game under 8.8 fantasy points since week 2. Njoku is one of the safer options at TE if he plays this weekend.
9. Pat Freiermuth, Steelers vs. Bengals
Pat Freiermuth has only put up a total of 17 fantasy points over the past couple of weeks, but remains one of the only TE’s with a substantial target share on a week to week basis.
10. Gerald Everett, Chargers vs. Chiefs
Gerald Everett caught 2 passes on the first drive of the game against the 49ers but then was taken out of the game and did not return. He was on pace for a huge game against a dominant defense, and the Chiefs struggled to contain him the last time the played him (6 receptions for 71 yards).
11. Juwan Johnson, Saints vs. Rams
Juwan Johnson has had over 12 fantasy points in 3 of his last 4 games and the Rams defense hasn’t played well recently.
12. Greg Dulcich, Broncos vs. Raiders
Greg Dulcich had his first game of the season under 10 fantasy points last weekend, but the Raiders are a positive matchup for him to get back on track.
13. Dawson Knox, Bills vs. Browns
Dawson Knox has been better in recent weeks (over 9 fantasy points in 3 of his last 4 games) and Josh Allen should continue to look his way agains the Browns.
14. Kyle Pitts, Falcons vs. Bears
Kyle Pitts has been one of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy football this season. Pitts was drafted in rounds 3-4 in most leagues yet has 0 20+ fantasy point performances and only 2 touchdowns on the year.
15. Tyler Conklin, Jets vs. Patriots
Tyler Conklin had a 26 fantasy point game just two weeks ago against the Patriots and he plays them again this weekend, so expect another solid game from Conklin.
