Some tight ends stand out as must-start fantasy football options every week while others come and go depending on matchups and other factors. Hitting on under-the-radar plays is big in season-long fantasy and DFS. We’ve identified two tight ends worth starting and two to consider sitting ahead of Week 10 to help you achieve fantasy success this weekend.
Tight End Starts
Engram is picking up steam after kicking off 2020 with a slow start. He’s tallied at least five receptions and 40 receiving yards in three straight games. Engram hasn’t amassed fewer than nine targets in three weeks as well. Only Sterling Shephard has gotten a similar level of exposure, and it’s only a matter of time before Engram has a breakout performance with Darius Slayton and Golden Tate being so unproductive.
Jordan Reed, San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans Saints
San Francisco was conservative with Reed in his first game back from the IR in Week 9. While he only played 13 snaps, he was targeted three times. He’ll be an important weapon for the 49ers now that Geroge Kittle is done for the year and he’s far more dynamic than Ross Dwelley. Look for San Francisco to ramp up his snap count moving forward.
Tight End Sits
Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers vs. Jacksonville
Tonyan’s fantasy numbers have been bolstered by the ridiculous three-score game he had earlier in the season. He’s not the odd man out in Green Bay just yet with Allen Lazard till on the mend, but Davante Adams and Aaron Jons have powered the offense. Tonyan is capable of having big games but hasn’t scored in four weeks.
Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants
Goedert played a ton of snaps in Week 8 after missing four games with a high ankle sprain. While tight ends have been a staple in Philadelphia’s offense for a while he only tallied one target in his return to the field. He played 84 percent of his team’s snaps his last time out and it appears like he could take a back seat to Miles Sanders, Travis Fulgham, and Jalen Reagor in Week 10.
