Hey Nerds! The DynastyNerds writers are here to provide you with weekly starts and sits. We will be making our recommendations based on weekly consensus PPR rankings from FantasyPros. Here is our squad and the position groups they will be covering to help you each week. Follow us, friend us, tweet us. We look forward to hearing from you!
- QB: Tyler Grzegorek (@tyler_grez)
- RB: Gage Bridgford (@gbridgfordnfl)
- WR: Tristan Cook (@tristancook_)
- TE: Mychal Warno (@dynastydadmike)
- FLEX: Ethan Wyatt (@dynastywildcat)
- IDP: Jon Glosser (@glosser13)
NOTE: Rankings are based on a 12-team PPR league. So, saying WR2 means top 24, or TE1 means top 12, etc. and are pulled from Fantasy Pros consensus expert rankings.
Well, if you are reading this article, congratulations on advancing to your semi-final matchups. The ship is just around the corner. Keep your eye on the prize. Just a reminder, if you have a stud, now is not the time to get cute and start someone else. If you have Travis Kelce start him even though the matchup is terrible, you are probably here because of Kelce.

Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears (TE 16)
You cannot ignore the 14 targets Kmet has seen since Mitch Trubisky has taken over as the signal-caller in the Bears offense. Kmet is now playing over 70% of the snaps over the last four games and gets the Vikings next, who just allowed a touchdown to Rob Gronkowski the previous week. I look forward to seeing what Kmet can look like next year, and he would be a nice tight end to target in your dynasty leagues.
Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams (TE18)
I get the reluctance with Higbee. He was one of my players primed to breakout in 2020, and it just never came to fruition. However, the matchup is great. No team has allowed more touchdowns to the position than the New York Jets. Jets also have allowed the second-most receiving yards to tight ends. It’s a coin flip on which Rams tight end to start between Gerald Everett and Tyler Higbee. This week the coin landed on Higbee.
Logan Thomas -Washington Football Team (TE11)
Thomas has scored at least ten fantasy points in six of his last eight games. Thomas has not seen lower than four targets in any matchup this season. In fact, Thomas has lead all receivers and tight ends for the Football Team in targets and receptions over the past few weeks.
Dalton Schultz – Dallas Cowboys (TE14)
Schultz had a great matchup last week and didn’t produce, so in a matchup against the team (San Francisco) who has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to the position, Schultz cannot be trusted. Also, add to the fact that Schultz has only one top ten finish over his last five games, Im making Schultz ride my fantasy bench.

Noah Fant – Denver Broncos (TE12)
Fant looked to be a breakout player in 2020 but has overall been a disappointment in the Denver offense as it appears Tim Patrick took his place as the breakout Denver star. Fant has only three top-ten tight end finishes this year and has only had double-digit performance in his last nine games, and hasn’t found the end zone since Week 2. The Bills haven’t allowed a touchdown since Week 6
Hayden Hurst – Atlanta Falcons (TE15)
Another fantasy disappointment this year would have to be Hayden Hurst. Hurst has scored less than two fantasy points in three of his last four matchups. The matchup is good for Hurst, but his recent production gives me no faith whatsoever to start him in a semi final matchup.
