Tight end depth – ever heard of it? This week, you will. It looks like for the first time in the whole season there are several options on the start or rest bubble that appear to be legitimate sleepers. Hopefully you’re in the playoffs, but if not, what’s more fun than playing the bad guy and knocking someone else off their pedestal? Let our Week 11 fantasy TE PPR rankings help you decide who to start in this often frustrating position.
If you have Kyle Pitts (vs. Patriots), Mark Andrews (@Bears) or Darren Waller (vs. Bengals), just know your boys are in tough games with a top 10 TE defence. – but also know that you cannot bench them.
For those in need of a streamer, look no further than Evan Engram (@Buccaneers), Pat Freiermith (@ Chargers), Cole Kmet (vs. Ravens), and if he’s back from a hamstring injury, Logan Thomas (@Panthers). All but Thomas is playing mediocre defense for the position. Thomas really has one of the tougher games this week, but we’re backing him. He is still present in over 40% of all tournaments, so we are allowed to call him a streamer. If he goes up against Carolina, he will go from streamer to automatic starter in your lineup. Isn’t that a nice deal?
Dallas Goedert (vs. Saints) has been productive this year, but can we really call him a starter? Since Zach Ertz was traded, he has failed to live up to expectations and go against what was the fourth-best defense against fictional tight finishes in Week 10. It was not his fault at all. , but in the imagination, that doesn’t matter. Goedert has more of an edge in PPR tournaments, but he’s still a bubble player this week if he gets past the head injury he sustained in Week 10.
Similarly, Dan Arnold (vs 49ers) has had an unexpected run in PPR tournaments, but he has one of the toughest games for the TEs. In a week where options were plentiful, he was a candidate for the bench. There’s also a chance he just gets so many targets no matter what, so you can definitely play him if you need him.
We covered Thomas above, but Rob Gronkowski (back) could also return this week, so keep an eye out for hands-on reports on both. Gronk will have to start if it works.
Enjoy a deep week while we’re having it because chances are, things will be back up soon.
