Darren Waller and T.J. Hockenson are on bye weeks so who are the other tight ends that can step up in their absence for your fantasy team?
- Travis Kelce, Chiefs vs. Bills
It’s time to start viewing Travis Kelce as more than just a tight end, but in fact the best red-zone player in all of fantasy football. Upp there with Cooper Kupp in terms of impact, Kelce is on pace to have his best season ever and should go off again in a showdown Sunday against the Bills
2. Mark Andrews, Ravens vs. Giants
Mark Andrews didn’t have his usual monster fantasy performance as Lamar Jackson was shut down for most of the game. However, Andrews pulled in the only touchdown for the Ravens last weekend and should go off against a Giants defense that will have a hard time containing Lamar Jackson.
3. George Kittle, 49ers vs. Falcons
4. Tyler Higbee, Rams vs. Panthers
Tyler Higbee is becoming a wide receiver by most metrics as he’s getting 10 targets and 7 receptions on average per game and usually gets over 11 fantasy points. One of the more consistent tight ends in all of football, you can rely on Higbee to have a huge day against a suspect Panthers defense.
5. David Njoku, Browns vs. Patriots
6. Zach Ertz, Cardinals vs. Seahawks
7. Evan Engram, Jaguars vs. Colts
8. Dallas Goedert, Eagles vs. Cowboys
9. Taysom Hill, Saints vs. Bengals
Possibly the most volatile play in all of Fantasy sports, Taysom Hill either is completely cut out of the game plan or goes off for a huge fantasy day like his 35 fantasy point performance last weekend where he rushed for 3 touchdowns and passed for one. Hill is still listed as a tight end and is a great pickup in all leagues. However, on a week-to-week basis, no one knows if they’ll be getting 35-point Hill or 0-point Hill in fantasy so he is a huge high-risk-high-reward play each week.
10. Hayden Hurst, Bengals vs. Saints
Hayden Hurst has back-to-back 11.7+ fantasy point days and is becoming an integral part of the Bengals’ offense. For that reason, he is a good start every single week at the premium tight-end position.
11. Dawson Knox, Bills vs. Chiefs
12. Pat Freiermuth, Steelers vs. Buccaneers
13. Gerald Everett, Chargers vs. Broncos
14. Will Dissly, Seahawks vs. Cardinals
15. Cole Kmet, Bears vs. Commanders
16. Dalton Schultz, Cowboys vs. Eagles
17. Irv Smith Jr., Vikings vs. Dolphins
18. Robert Tonyan, Packers vs. Jets
19. Hunter Henry, Patriots vs. Browns
20. Mike Gesicki, Dolphins vs. Vikings
