Travis Kelce, Mike Evans, Darren Waller and Pat Freiermuth could all be close to Week 17, and since we’re heading into the final week of the fantasy season, it’s now or never for this group of elite pass catching options. The tight end position would clearly benefit from the return of Kelce, Waller and Freiermuth, and Mike Evans could be poised for an explosive game as Chris Godwin is out for a year.

WEEK 17: Best Waiver Cable Pickups

Travis Kelce COVID Update

Kelce (reserve / COVID) should have plenty of time to clear the protocols and play Week 17 against the Bengals (although it’s a bit surprising that he wasn’t cleared on Monday), but we know it’s not a smart move to assume at this point. any. about these kinds of situations. We don’t have to convince Kelce’s owners that they should start him if he plays, but we do have to keep in mind that Byron Pringle is clearly the beneficiary of his absence, and no other TE from the Chiefs seems like an attractive play.

Kelce ranks as our TE1 in the standard and PPR leagues.

Update on Mike Evans / COVID Injury

Evans (hamstring, reserve / COVID) has an uphill battle to play in Week 17 as he has two ailments to deal with, and it is an unfortunate break for the owners of Evans’ fantasy in their championship games. . He would be ready to face the Jets, and his ceiling would be WR1 overall. It’s hard to think that he’ll be out there though, so we could be looking at another monster goal set for Antonio Brown, whose ceiling would be WR1 overall.

Tyler Johnson is no longer a consideration after he drew zero goals and ran fewer routes than Cyril Grayson Jr. Grayson could be a deep league boom or bust play, but he’s probably more suitable as a DFS dart throw. That said, Breshad Perriman’s return to the lineup from the reserve / COVID roster could mean that he becomes irrelevant. Overall, Brown and Rob Gronkowski are the only pass receivers to trust here. We classify Evans as the WR7 in standard and WR8 in the PPR leagues if he plays, but at this point, he doesn’t look good.

Darren Waller injury update

Waller (knee, back) hasn’t played or practiced since Thanksgiving, and he could very well be on his way to missing a fifth game in a row. That said, Raiders coach Rich Bisaccia said he hopes Waller can practice Wednesday. We’ll see what the practice reports tell us later in the week, but since his Week 17 showdown with the Colts is a very TEs-friendly place, Waller is a must-start. Darius Leonard (reserve / COVID) will be out during Week 17, so it certainly helps Waller’s case.

For now, we have Foster Moreau as a low-end TE1 or a high-end TE2, having been productive in his last two games, so he would be a legitimate streamer if Waller is out.

Pat Freiermuth injury update

Freiermuth (concussion) missed the game against the Chiefs last week, but could come back against a Cleveland defense that allows the TEs the 10th most fantasy points. It is always difficult to speculate on a head injury, but it will be 15 days between the injury and this game, so Freiermuth has a good chance to come back.

For now, we have Freiermuth as TE14 in the standard and PPR leagues. He ranks first among all tight ends in red zone goals (18), so a touchdown could easily give him a top 12 finish. If he’s out, Zach Gentry has a decent floor in the PPR leagues, but his ceiling is too low for most leagues.
