Few tight ends stand out as must-start fantasy football options every week so there are plenty of other players worth taking a look at week in and week out. 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 11 to help you achieve fantasy success this weekend.
Tight End Starts
Logan Thomas, Washington vs. Bengals
Thomas isn’t someone I’d expect to give you more than 50 yards and a touchdown on his best day, but when you look at the tight end landscape, that stat line is a Top-5 play. Thomas continues to see useful targets and plays almost every snap, while the Benglas have allowed six touchdowns to tight ends over their last five games.
The Jaguars rank third-worst in fantasy points allowed to tight ends this season. Ebron has two touchdowns over his last three games and has averaged six targets per game since Week 3, ranking him ninth in the league during that stretch.
Tight End Sits
Tonyan continues to play at less than 100 percent health and this week he gets a tough matchup with the Colts. So far, the Colts haven’t allowed one touchdown to a tight end, while giving up just 34 yards and 3.9 receptions per game to the position.
I love Fant and it will be difficult not to play him, but his injury woes have really slowed him down this season. He’s been dealing with an ankle injury and now he has a rib injury. Plus, he’ll face a Dolphins defense that has been stout against tight ends. They’ve allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points against the position and Fant’s quarterback is also hurting.
