12 Formation – Tight End Start/Sits Week 11

Can we finally trust Tonyan? Who can I stream ? @dynastydadmike has some Week 11 answers and options for your fantasy lineups!

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!

 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.

Week 11 is here, sports fans! I hope not only your fantasy teams but also your favorite NFL teams are still in the hunt! As a Bucs fan, it has been a great ride this season for me. Before we dive into the matchups for Week 11, let’s recap. As a whole, the position was severely down as only eight tight ends scored double-digit points, with Mark Andrews and Rob Gronkowski leading the pack with 13.1 fantasy points. My starts were Gerald Everett (4.7), Eric Ebron (5.8), and Evan Engram (3.5). My sits were Rob Gronkowski (13.1), Mark Andrews (13.1), and Tyler Higbee (9.0). Well done by me to recommend sitting the TE1 and TE2 on the week. facepalm

Players on a bye – Evan Engram, Jimmy Graham, Cole Kmet, Tyler Kroft , Jordan Reed

Jared Cook – New Orleans Saints  (TE 16)

Who has allowed the most fantasy points to tight ends? The Atlanta Falcons. Who has allowed the most touchdowns to tight ends? The Atlanta Falcons. Who has allowed the second-most receiving yards to tight ends? The Atlanta Falcons. If there were ever a week to trust Jared Cook, it would be this one.ย 

Hayden Hurst – Atlanta Falcons (TE10)

Hurst has become a very reliable option as he has scored double digits in each of his last four games. Hurst has also seen at least eight targets in three of those games. He now faces a Saints defense that has allowed double-digit performances in six of their nine matchups this year.

Logan Thomas – Washington Football Team  (TE13)

Thomas gets a great matchup this week as he faces the Cincinnati Bengals. Since his bye week, Thomas has seen at least six targets in every game, which matches up well against the Bengals, who have allowed 76 targets to the position on the year. Thomas would be my streamer candidate for Week 11.ย 


Robert Tonyan – Green Bay Packers (TE17)

After his red hot start, Tonyan has come back down to earth with only one double-digit game in his last five. With the return of Devante Adams and the emergence of Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Tonyan is becoming an afterthought in the offense. You are hoping for a touchdown with Tonyan, and unfortunately, his Week 11 opponent (Indianapolis) has yet to give up a touchdown to a tight end.

Trey Burton – Indianapolis Colts  (TE18)

Burton has gained some sleeper value amongst the fantasy community. He gets a terrible matchup against the Green Bay Packers, who have allowed just one touchdown to the position. There are better tight end options this week than Burton.ย ย 

Tyler Eifert – Jacksonville Jaguars (TE26)

Eifert has not been featured in the Jacksonville offense. He has not topped 48 receiving yards on the season and has only one double-digit performance. He also has a terrible matchup against Pittsburgh, who have allowed the third-fewest receiving yards to the position and only one touchdown on the year.
