Start’ Em Sit’ Em Tight Ends – Week 13

Starts

Start of the Week –

T.J. Hockenson vs Chicago Bears

Hockenson has proven time and time again that he can be reliable for Stafford in situations. If there is one chink the armor of the Bears defense, it is defending tight ends. Lock Hockenson in as a complete start this weekend boys.

Hunter Henry vs New England Patriots

Hunter Henry is a great start this weekend against the New England Patriots. Last week he received a total of ten targets in the game against the Bills catching seven of them. The matchup is not great, but his production should be against the Pats this weekend. Call it a hunch.

Eric Ebron vs Washington Football Team

Ebron received quite the plentiful notion of targets last weekend against the Ravens. He should see an uptake in this game when he and the Steelers take on the Washington Football Team. He gets in the end zone a lot despite having one of the best wide receiving cores in the entire league.

Dallas Goedert vs Green Bay Packers

Goedert finally got the ball rolling for Carson Wentz against the Seahawks last weekend. I look for him to keep that ball rolling when he faces a Green Bay Packers defense. He will look to be the vocal point in that offense yet again for this one.

Austin Hooper vs Tennessee Titans

With tight ends like Gronkowski on a bye, you might be looking for a streamer. Austin Hooper is your man as the Titans are ranked 26th against defending the position. His totals aren’t great, but he did score a touchdown against Jacksonville last weekend if that helps.

Robert Tonyan vs Philadelphia Eagles

Anthony Firsker vs Cleveland Browns

Kyle Rudolph vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Sits

Sit of the Week –

Noah Fant vs Kansas City Chiefs

Fant’s production this season has been anything but positive scoring double digit points only three times this season. He doesn’t grab my attention when it deems to start him against the Chiefs as the quarterbacks were ringed out for their handling of COVID. All in all it is a mess, and one I would highly stay away from.

Jared Cook vs Atlanta Falcons

Cook has virtually done nothing for the Saints since Taysom Hill took over. His rush first pass second offense is really starting to affect this team. It will be proven when they take on the Falcons who are terrible against defending the position, and he will end up with a terrible score yet again.

Jimmy Graham vs Detroit Lions

The Chicago offense changes constantly trying to find its identity. When Foles is in, he passes to the tight ends more. When Trubisky is in he passes to Allen Robinson more. It’s not a great matchup since the Lions are 6th at defending tight ends.

Mike Gesicki vs Cincinnati Bengals

The matchup is a great one. So why is Gesicki on the sit list. Call it a funny feeling, but I’m getting bad vibes off this game with him. The Bengals are 28th against defending tight ends. So while I believe it is a great matchup, the Bengals will be looking for something to prove this season somehow. Maybe that is by stopping Miami.

Logan Thomas vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Thomas did well on Thanksgiving catching a touchdown pass, and tossing a throw for about 20-something yards. However, I would not recommend you put him in your lineups this weekend. The Steelers are notorious for stopping tight ends. They are actually the best team at stopping them so sit him.
