It was a much simpler time at the beginning of the week. Greg Olsen was only rostered in half of leagues and he was a top-10 option. There was no challenge in finding the top streamer for Week 3.
It’s not so simple if you waited until the last minute or Olsen wasn’t available in your league. Once you get past my top 12 there are 10 tight ends projected to score between 6.5 and 8.5 PPR points. A few of those guys are going to score touchdowns and be excellent streamers while a few of them may not even break five points.
One name that was a late addition to the list was Gerald Everett. Tyler Higbee has been ruled out, which should leave Everett with the lion’s share of the tight end targets. So far this seasons 21% of Jared Goff’s attempts have gone to a tight end. The Rams‘ implied total of 25.25 isn’t too shabby either.
But as you’ll see below it’s easy to lose Everett in the mix with Jason Witten playing the Dolphins, Will Dissly’s absurd pace, and Tyler Eifert’s target opportunity. All those names and I still haven’t mentioned my favorite streamer. Don’t worry, he’s listed below.
Week 3 TE Preview
The following players are not being projected to play Week 3 at this time. Here’s what it means:
Numbers to Know
9.8 — Yards per reception for George Kittle. We expected him to regress from 2018, but this is (hopefully) an over-correction. 6 — Plays of more than 20 yards for Mark Andrews. No other tight end has more than four. 29.88% — Share of Titans‘ air yards for Delanie Walker. That’s higher than even Andrews.9 — Targets for Greg Olsen in each of his first two games. He may not be the player he once was, but he’s being targeted like he is.61 — Fantasy points allowed to tight ends by the Cardinals this season. That’s almost 50% more than the Dolphins.
