Start of the Week-
T.J. Hockenson vs Houston Texans
It feels so weird saying this still because last year Hockenson was so inconsistent, but now he has become one of the more consistent tight ends in 2020. He has a great matchup this Thanksgiving when he faces the Houston Texans and with so many receivers out, he will get plenty of looks.
Hunter Henry vs Buffalo Bills
Hunter Henry is now back in the good graces of Justin Herbert. He has a touchdown and double digit points in back-back games this season. He will now square off against the Bills who are ranked 30th against defending the tight end position. Start him up folks.
Jonnu Smith vs Indianapolis Colts
The matchup is not great, but I’d rather roll with Smith then a lot of other guys this weekend. He has a touchdown in back-back weeks and one of them was against the Colts. Granted it was a rushing touchdown, but a touchdown is a touchdown. I expect Smith to be a lot more on target witb Tannehill this weekend despite the hard matchup.
Eric Ebron vs Baltimore Ravens
Ebron is starting to do what he was meant to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has four touchdowns on the year, and this time he will face off against the Baltimore Ravens. He scored a touchdown and a little less than 15 points on the day. I reckon he is gonna do it again boys.
Dalton Schultz vs Washington Football Team
Schultz was able to score a touchdown very late in the 4th quarter to save his fantasy value. It’s fine I guess if he is touchdown dependent, but he also has been targeted at least seven times a game which is good. Put him in this week against the Washington Football Team. They’ve given up nearly 14 points a game to enemy tight ends as well as six touchdowns. What do you have to lose at this point honestly?
Noah Fant vs New Orleans Saints
Dállalas Goedert vs Seattle Seahawks
Logan Thomas vs Dallas Cowboys
Sit of the Week –
Jordan Reed vs Los Angeles Rams
Let’s not kid ourselves here. We all want George Kittle back. We aren’t gonna get it so we hold our breath and wish for the greatness to be sent to Jordan Reed cause man has be sucked this season. One big game against the Jets, and the rest is filled with inconsistencies and injuries. Fade hard against the Rams this week.
Jared Cook vs Denver Broncos
Cook was alone out there and not in the sights of Taysom Hill hardly ever as he only caught one ball all game against the worst team at covering tight ends. Unreal, but his matchup this week is not looking promising either against the Broncos who are in the top ten at defending against the tight end position.
Tyler Higbee vs San Francisco 49ers
Damn man. Higbee used to be so good. What I’m the hell happened? He has been sharing more time with partner in crime; Gerald Everett and has been plagued by a hand injury. The 49ers are the second team to fight against tight ends. This matchup is not safe. Run far from it.
Jimmy Graham vs Green Bay Packers
Revenge game are fun, but not when the offense you have now is worse than the offense you had before. The Bears offense has been in shambles for some time now, and with Trubisky taking the field it will be hard to trust his relations with Graham. Plus, the Packers are 3rd in the NFL against tight ends.
Chris Herndon vs Miami Dolphins
Been a long time since Herndon made this list, but it always seems to be on the sit side. A lot of people are trying to get him after he scored a touchdown against the Chargers. Don’t chase points people. The Chargers are terrible at defending tight ends unlike the Jets’ opponents this week; the Miami Dolphins who are ranked 9th defending tight ends.
Trey Burton vs Tennessee Titans
Will Dissly vs Philadelphia Eagles
Tyler Eifert vs Cleveland Browns
