Our Week 16 TE PPR fantasy rankings might be reversed before the end of the week due to all the COVID craziness, but for now, we’ll work with what we have and help you decide who to start with and who to sit down with. extremely tight.
It’s worth noting that Darren Waller (knee) could be back this week, but TJ Hockenson is ready for the year after undergoing thumb surgery. Travis Kelce (vs. Steelers), Mark Andrews (@ Bengals) and George Kittle (@ Titans) have rejoined the elite tight ends class after brief hiatus, but we can never have enough producers at the position.
WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | D / ST | Kicker
Crazy as it may sound, James O’Shaugnessy (@ Jets) might have the safest floor in the PPR leagues among would-be streamers. The showdown with the Jets is strong and Jags’ tight ends have enjoyed many goals all season. Of course, his roof is limited by the bad offense of the Jaguars, but if you need some easy and cheap points, he is your guy. If you want to chase as much potential as possible, CJ Uzomah (against Ravens) is probably the best option. He has produced TE1 weeks multiple times and has been the overall TE1 twice this season. Low floor, high ceiling – isn’t that what the fantasy playoffs are all about?
WEEK 16 STANDARD RATINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker
Other viable streamer options include Cole Kmet (@ Seahawks), Even Engram (@ Eagles), Jared Cook (@ Texans), Albert Okwuegbunam (@ Raiders). Each probably has a higher lead than O’Shaugnessy, but a lower lead than Uzomah. Which player is best for your team depends on what you need this week.
We’re on the TEs for the Browns (@ Packers), Tyler Higbee (@ Vikings), Tyler Conklin (vs. Rams) and Gerald Everett (vs. Bears) this week. They are all better suited as touchdown or bust options in standard leagues, and since the matchups are unfavorable, we don’t trust them in the fantasy playoffs. However, we do like the bust of the entire season Noah Fant (@ Raiders) and the weekly start, feel it, the headache Zach Ertz (@ Colts), who get some of the best matchups in TE.
Again, be prepared with a backup because any of your mandatory starter bolts could show up on the reserve / COVID list. Unlike RB and even WR, you can’t really cuff your TE in most cases, so you need to study matchups and have your pivot ready. These things are not fun to deal with during the fantasy playoffs, but no one said that winning a title would be easy.
