12 Formation- Tight End – Week 10 Starts/Sits

Need a replacement for Travis Kelce or Hayden Hurst? @dynastydadmike has some options for your bye week blues

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 9 is in the rearview mirror and before we dive into my Week 10 starts, let’s recap, shall we? My starts were TJ Hockenson (14.9), Noah Fant (7.5 before leaving with injury), Hayden Hurst (13.2). My sits were Mike Gesecki (7.2), Ian Thomas (1.8), and Dalton Schultz (8.8). Finally! A Decent week for your boy!

Players on a bye – Travis Kelce, Hayden Hurst, Chris Herndon, Dalton Schultz

Gerald Everett  (TE 19)

Everett has seemingly taken over the starting tight end position for the Los Angeles Rams as he has seen more targets than Tyler Higbee over the last four games. Seattle and Los Angeles are currently projected to be the second-highest point total of the week, which means roll out all your offensive options (except Higbee) in this potential shootout.

Eric Ebron (TE9)

It is weird to have Ebron as a start for my column as he has been entrenched as a constant sit. However, we can not ignore the matchup against the Bengals. Cincinnati has allowed the second-most points to the position. Throw in the fact that Ebron has had three straight double-digit performances, and you have a starting-caliber option for your lineup.

Evan Engram – New York Giants (TE5)

Is it finally time for Evan Engram to breakout? He has had three straight double-digit performances, including getting his first touchdown on the season in Week 9. He has seen 29 targets in his last three games, including a nine target game last time he faced the Eagles. Start Engram while he is hot!


Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams (TE21)

Please direct your attention to the Gerald Everett portion of the article as to some of the reasons to sit Mr. Higbee. If you need more reasons, Higbee has not scored a touchdown since Week 2 and has only topped double digits once this year.

Rob Gronkowski – Tampa Bay Bucs  (TE7)

Antonio Brown. Mike Evans. Chris Godwin. Scotty Miller. The list goes on for potential Buccaneer targets for Tom Brady. Tampa goes to Carolina, wherein Week 2, Gronk saw just one target and finished his day with 0 fantasy points. Keep in mind on that date, Tampa did not have Godwin or Brown contending for targets as well. Sit Gronk!

Mark Andrews – Baltimore Ravens (TE6)

Andrews has failed to score double-digit points in each of his last 3 outings. In his only appearance against New England, he was held to 5.1 fantasy points as Bill Belichick made it a focus to eliminate Andrews from the game plan. New England has also allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to the position and the fewest receptions to the position. If you can, I would bench Andrews and look elsewhere.
