Tight finish is already a shallow place, and the mixture bye weeks and accidents makes the group even harder to determine. It is time to play the tight finish streamer sport, and our Week 6 fantasy TE rankings might help you establish the highest choices on the waiver wire and in free company. As at all times, tight ends who aren’t the elite of the elite can at all times bust, however we’ll assist you determine who to begin.
Kyle Pitts is essentially the most notable tight finish affected by a Week 6 bye. George Kittle’s 49ers are on a bye, too, however he is been positioned on IR with a calf harm. Juwan Johnson has had some standard-league streaming attraction this yr, and he has the week off, too.
So, with these choices off the desk, Mike Gesicki (@ Jaguars), Tyler Higbee (@ Giants), and Dawson Knox (@ Titans) are thrust into our top-10 tight ends this week. The Giants and Jaguars have been bottom-10 defenses in opposition to TE this season, so there’s lots to love right here. Tennessee has been the No. 1 protection in opposition to tight ends, however let’s face it — the perfect TE they’ve confronted has been Mo Alie-Cox or Maxx Williams. Their fantasy factors allowed to tight ends determine is deceptive, particularly after they gave up a landing to Jacob Hollister in Week 5. Knox can be just too scorching to take a seat. Ricky Seals-Jones (vs. KC), who was amongst Washington’s goal leaders in Week 5, is a legit streaming choice, as effectively.
Dalton Schultz (@ Patriots), Tyler Conklin (@ Panthers), and Evan Engram (vs. Rams) determine to have tough matchups, although the Pats did quit a TE landing to the Texans final week. Schultz has been adequate that he must be began anyway, however it is going to be an uphill battle for Conklin or Engram to supply something strong from a fantasy perspective except they sneak in a receiving landing.
Rob Gronkowski (@ Eagles) would clearly be a must-start if he is lively, and since he hasn’t been positioned on IR, there’s a likelihood he performs by way of his ribs harm. If he is out once more, Cameron Brate is at all times a boom-or-bust choice due to Tampa’s high-powered offense.
The fact is the tight finish place is hard to judge, and matchups are all the pieces. That stated, do not be shocked to see Gesicki proper beneath the elite class of Travis Kelce (@ Washington), Darren Waller (@ Broncos), and T.J. Hockenson (vs. Bengals). In normal leagues, you are actually simply hoping for a landing. It is tough for lots of the middle-of-the-pack TEs to even sniff 100 yards, so be waiting for red-zone targets and touchdowns allowed to tight ends when making your begin ’em, sit ’em selections.
We’ll be updating these TE rankings as wanted all through the week, so examine again for the most recent adjustments and evaluation.
