As the bye weeks continue and injuries mount, transmission at tight end is more important than ever, especially since there have been so few tight ends who have been reliable options week after week. Of course, you’re not going to bench Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, or Mark Andrews, but we’re at the point where, realistically, you might have a better sleep option than George Kittle. We’ll go through it all in our fantasy TE PPR ranking from week 10.
Logan Thomas (hamstring) should be back in Week 10, so do yourself a favor and snag him if he’s available in your league. It is rare to acquire a player with a top five advantage in any position for free, but this is the opportunity. Dawson Knox (hand) is very possessed, but also keep an eye on his injury status. The biggest loss of the byes this week is probably CJ Uzomah, so all the best players are on the table. That being said, a lot of people won’t need transmitters this week, but we know some will.
WEEK 10 STANDARD RATINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker
Dan Arnold (@ Colts), Pat Freiermuth (vs. Lions), and Tyler Conklin (@ Chargers) are really the only three streamers we can advise you to play with confidence. The Colts, Lions and Chargers are very generous with tight ends, and with each of those guys being a focal point in their offenses, they should eat this week. Of course, start Thomas (against Buccaneers) too, but it almost doesn’t feel right to call him a streamer. Let it be known that we like it as a top 10 game this week and the rest of the way.
WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | D / ST | Kicker
We’ve gotten to the point where it’s hard to consider Mo Alie-Cox (against Jaguars) as a PPR play, regardless of the matchup. He sits 33rd among tight ends in goals per game, and we know his only saving grace is a touchdown. Tommy Sweeney (@ Jets) has a strong showdown if Knox stays out, but hasn’t benefited much from Knox’s absence. Like Alie-Cox and Sweeney, Jonnu Smith (against Browns) hasn’t shown us enough this season to consider him a favorable matchup, especially when he’s constantly beaten. Jared Cook (against Vikings) has been attractive in certain weeks, but not in Week 10 against a top-eight defense against fantasy tight ends. Marcedes Lewis (vs. Seahawks) is another type of TD or bust better suited for standard leagues.
As mentioned above, the best studs are up for grabs this week, so while there are only a handful of playable options at the position, we expect a small percentage of fantasy owners to have to worry about streaming. Trust your studs and don’t overthink it.
Note: We’ll update these TE rankings throughout the week, so check back for the latest player moves and analytics.
