Fantasy TE Rankings Week 10 Who to start sit at tight end in fa

  • Finding the right tight end streamer can give you an advantage in any week, and since the fantasy playoffs will be here before you know it, we have to continue working on identifying the best TE matchups. Of course, if you just have a consistent every-week starter, you won't have many problems. Our Week 10 fantasy TE rankings welcome back familiar face Logan Thomas to the top tier and highlight some potential sleepers at this thin position.

    Thomas is available in roughly 47 percent of Yahoo leagues after mi sing several games because of a hamstring injury. The fact he's been so heavily dropped is a perfect example of how you can take advantage of opportunities provided by impatient owners. Thomas was a top-seven tight end in all formats last year, and although he wasn't spectacular early Taywan Taylor Jersey this season, it was a small sample size. Pick him up now and play him right away. His matchup with Tampa Bay should mark a great start to the rest of his season. Not all players coming off of a bye warrant their own paragraph, Ben Jones Jersey but there's a potential top-five TE just sitting on many waiver wires. (Update: Thomas will mi s Week 10.)

    It's also worth noting T.J. Hockenson (@ Steelers) and Rob Gronkowski (@ Washington) are back from byes (a suming Gronk's back is healthy). The only halfway-significant bye-week lo s is C.J. Uzomah, so we're in good shape in Week 10 (especially since we don't have to worry about the always-inconsistent Evan Engram). (Update: Gronk will once again be out.)

    WEEK 10 STANDARD RANKINGS: | | | | |

    For the first time this season (and probably a few years), an active Travis Kelce (@ Raiders) isn't in our No. 1 spot. Obviously, you're still starting him, but it's worth noting the "historic" moment. Hockenson (@ Steelers) and George Kittle (vs. Rams) are probably the only two must-starts with concerning matchups, but they will still be in lineups. Dallas Goedert (@ Broncos), and Zach Ertz (@ Panthers) have been on the edge of the must-start territory, but they're in rough spots this week against stellar TE defenses. Still, they also have high enough Nate Davis Jersey ceilings to warrant being used in most situations.

    WEEK 10 FANTASY: | |

    The most attractive streamers this week are Pat Freiermith (vs. Lions), Tyler Conklin (@ Chargers), and Dan Arnold (@ Colts). Indianapolis and Los Angeles are among the eight worst defenses against fantasy TEs, so Arnold and Conklin should have plenty of opportunities to produce. Detroit has statistically been OK against the position, but Freiermuth is beginning to look like a featured weapon in the Pittsburgh pa sing game and Detroit has given up at least 50 yards and/or a touchdown to four-of-eight primary tight ends they've faced. We don't think the Steelers' offense is explosive enough to put this game out of reach early, so expect a bunch of Big Ben pa s attempts.

    WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS: | |

    There simply aren't a lot of favorable matchups for middle-of-the-pack TEs this week, so even if you have a stud with a bad matchup, you're probably better off sticking with them. Simply put, trust the easy calls and obvious streamers, and let other owners worry about playing a TD-or-bust waiver pickup.

    Note: We'll be updating these TE rankings throughout the Ryan Tannehill Jersey week, so check back for the latest player movement and analysis.

    Fantasy TE Rankings Week 10: Who to start at tight end

    Rankings based on standard, non-PPR scoring

    RankPlayer1Darren Waller, LV vs. KC2Mark Andrews, BAL @ MIA3Travis Kelce, KC @ LV4Mike Gesicki, MIA vs. BAL5Dawson Knox, BUF @ NYJ6Kyle Pitts, ATL @ DAL7T.J. Hockenson, DET @ PIT8George Kittle, SF vs. LAR9Tyler Conklin, MIN @ LAC.Los Angeles entered Week 9 allowing the third-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to tight ends, and even though they limited Dallas Goedert, we trust the Minnesota pa sing attack more than Philadelphia's. Conklin isn't going to smash like some of the elite tight ends, but this could be his best fantasy performance of the season. He's drawn seven targets in each of the past two games and has pa sed Jayon Brown Jersey K.J. Osborn as the third option for Kirk Cousins.10Dan Arnold, JAX @ IND.Arnold has drawn 23 targets over the past three weeks and appears to be solidly in the TE1 discu sion, at least in PPR. There's a clich that young quarterbacks love tight ends, but that actually seems to be the case in Jacksonville. Indianapolis has given up six touchdowns to tight ends this season, including to the likes of Gerald Everett, Geoff Swaim, and Ryan Griffin. That said, there's a path to a strong fantasy day for Arnold.11Pat Freiermuth, PIT vs. DET.The Lions are statistically a strong defense against TEs (mostly because they Tennessee Titans Jersey haven't played many great ones), but Freiermuth looks like a safe PPR target, as he saw seven targets in his first two games with JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder). Eric Ebron (hamstring) has been banged up, and Freiermuth has fully taken the primary tight end role. In a way, Big Ben's lack of arm strength is going to help Freiermuth's outlook moving forward as a security blanket.12Noah Fant, DEN vs. PHI.Fant (reserve/COVID) is expected to be back in the lineup after mi sing Week 9, and Philadelphia has been generous to tight ends this year. Dalton Schultz, T.J. Hockenson, O.J. Howard, and Foster Moreau all enjoyed good fantasy outings against them, and Fant stacks up well with that group. He's dealt with lower-body injuries all of this season, so he should be fresh and ready to go. This Denver offense is inconsistent, but if it's clicking, Fant will have a nice day.13Hunter Henry, NE vs. CLE.Cleveland is strong against tight ends, allowing strong performances to only Travis Kelce and Pat Freiermuth. Henry has only drawn three targets per game over the past four weeks, but he's scored three touchdowns in those contests. He Malcolm Butler Jersey sits at No. 6 among tight ends in red-zone targets (9), so while you can't count on touchdowns, he has delivered one more often than not lately. He is far and away the best red-zone option the Patriots have and is a strong play in standard leagues based on that. However, it will probably be another game with a low yardage total, and don't expect five-plus targets.14Dalton Schultz, DAL vs. ATL.Schultz is more attractive in PPR leagues, but it's hard to find a mid-tier tight end with a better offense. In a game in which the Dallas offense was a disaster last week, Schultz caught four-of-five targets for 54 yards.At tight end, dependability is almost non-existent. The Atlanta defense hasn Rashaan Evans Jersey 't been as bad as expected, but this feels like a game where the Cowboys come out on fire after a down performance. His ceiling is a top-five finish, but with all the mouths to feed in Dallas, his expectations are set lower.15Dallas Goedert, PHI @ DEN.The Eagles are suddenly a run-first (and run only) team, and Denver is the fourth-best team against fantasy tight ends. We're relying on those pieces of information, so Goedert moves down to TE2 this week. He still is one of the most talented tight ends in the league, so his ceiling remains high. Earl Campbell Jersey We just don't see him realizing that upside this week.16Ricky Seals-Jones, WAS vs. TB17Zach Ertz, ARI vs. CAR.Carolina hasn't surrendered more than nine fantasy points to any tight end except Dalton Schultz this season, so Ertz's ceiling in standard leagues is low. He's playable in PPR, but he's still a low-end option there. He warrants some consideration, but if Kyler Murray (ankle) is out for another week, keep him on your bench.18O.J. Howard, TB @ WAS19Tyler Higbee, LAR @ SF.Higbee has been a bust based Bruce Matthews Jersey on preseason expectations, and although he leads all tight ends in red-zone targets (12), he's only turned those into two touchdowns. Against Tenne see, he caught five-of-10 targets for 51 yards, so while that was a decent performance, it feels like that is his ceiling. San Francisco is the 10th-best team against fantasy TEs and hasn't allowed a tight end to go over 38 yards since T.J. Hockenson went for 97 in Week 1.20Mo Alie-Cox, IND vs. JAX21Marcedes Lewis, GB vs. SEA22Jared Cook, LAC vs. MIN23Gerald Everett, SEA @ GB24Jonnu Smith, NE vs. CLE25Jack Doyle, IND vs. JAX26Adam Trautman, NO @ TEN27Austin Hooper, CLE @ NE28David Njoku, CLE @ NE29Tommy Tremble, CAR @ ARI30Hayden Hurst, ATL @ DAL31Ryan Griffin, NYJ vs. BUF32Geoff Swaim, TEN vs. NO33Will Di sly, SEA @ GB
