Streaming tight ends is the way to go. Just like I was thankful for those who overdraft quarterbacks and leave all the fantasy football QBs to me to stream, I am thankful for those who overdraft tight ends. Ask the Jordan Reed owner in your league how he’s feeling, compared to the Zach Ertz owner. If you live the streaming life like we at Football Absurdity do, then you’ll want to check this article out. Below are three guys who are available in over 50% of Yahoo! leagues, with one guy out there in over 95% of fantasy football leagues.
Tyler Kroft versus Cleveland (46% owned)
Just like last week, I wrote a whole article about it. The skinny: Kroft gets just enough production as a poor man’s Tyler Eifert and this week he gets targets with a primo matchup opposing him. The Browns allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends and have yielded scores in three straight.
C.J. Fiedorowicz at Baltimore (20% owned)
The Polish Hat hasn’t been good since coming back from injury. Having Tom Savage throwing you passes will do that. However, Tom Savage as his QB is quite helpful this week. The Ravens absolutely blanket opposing wide receivers and smother them out of existence. That means that my preferred stream last week, Bruce Ellington, won’t be a good play this week. It’s Nuk Hopkins and Fiedorowicz for this Houston passing game this weekend.
George Kittle versus Seattle (3% owned)
On the surface, Kittle doesn’t look to be all that great of a play. Off the top of your head, you would think Seattle’s defense extremely stout against tight ends. The truth is they are just outside the top-ten in fantasy points per game to tight ends. They’ve allowed at least seven fantasy points in five of their last six games.
