There are a few tight ends widely available that either have good matchups heading into Week 10, or had successful Week 9 performances, or could benefit from an injury. With that in mind, here are four tight ends with under 50% ownership in traditional fantasy football leagues that managers can consider picking up for Week 10.
Hayden Hurst, Dalton Schultz, and Travis Kelce will not be available.
Jimmy Graham, Chicago Bears (49 percent)
Next up — MIN, BYE, @GB, DET, HOU
Graham is a top 10 tight end in standard and PPR league but his somehow has less than 50 percent rostership. The illusion that Cole Kmet and other options limit his upside might be contributing to Graham’s availability, but he’s proven to be a reliable red zone target by tallying five touchdown receptions.
Jordan Reed, San Francisco 49ers (37 percent)
Next up — @NO, BYE, @LAR, BUF, WAS
Reed stood out as a quality replacement for George Kittle early in the season and has secured a starting spot for the rest of the year. He was outdone by Ross Dwelley in his first game back from the IR and only logged 13 snaps in Week 9. That number should rise as he gets back into the swing of things.
Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (22 percent)
Next up — BYE, @MIN, WAS, @BAL, @CIN
While Dallas’s offense has imploded, Schultz has been one of the Cowboys’ most consistent pass catchers. He’s averaging four receptions and 39.5 receiving yards per game since Dak Prescott suffered his season-ending leg injury.
Mo Alie-Cox, Indianapolis Colts (2 percent)
Next up — @TEN, GB, TEN, @HOU, @LV
Alie-Cox was dynamic when Jack Doyle wen down with a knee injury early in the season and Doyle could miss Week 10 with a concussion. Alie-Cox has looked like Philip Rivers’ favorite red zone target at times this season and should have an edge over Trey Burton if only two tight ends are available. Alie-Cox is the best downfield threat of the trio.
