Here’s the lowdown on tight ends: it’s Travis Kelce, a massive chasm, 5-7 guys we sort of trust, and then a bunch of dart-throwing.
Notes for Week 8
Calvin Ridley’s surprise inactive means Kyle Pitts is firmly in my No. 2 slot. T.J. Hockenson is 100% off the injury report and averaging 10 targets a game over his last two weeks.
Noah Fant’s outlook takes a dent with the returns of Jerry Jeudy and backup tight end Albert O. (you can’t spell it either). Fant remains a top 10 option, though.
Baker Mayfield’s return means taking a dart on the Cleveland tight end of your choice as a TE2 is less disheartening.
Dawson Knox’s inactive means Tommy Sweeney is a top 20 play...it’s rough out here in these streets.
Dak Prescott’s questionable status for Sunday night means you may need to temper expectations for your favorite Cowboys tight end...
As always, haggle away in the comments if you see anything egregious.
