12 Formation: Tight End Start/Sits Week 16

It is time to get that ship! @dynastydadmike has his final tight end starts and sits of the 2020 season!

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.

It is championship time!! Congratulations, you are playing for a ship. Once you win this ship, food will taste better, the air will smell cleaner, and the intimate times with the significant other will go through the roof!!! So without further ado, here are my final starts and sits for the 2020 NFL fantasy season.


Mike Gesicki – Miami Dolphins  (TE 48)

I think the current rank of Gesecki reflects that the rankers believe he will not play. However, he needs to be started if he plays. Gesecki and Tua have developed quite the chemistry with each other as he has totaled 188 yards and 4 scores in his past three games. 

Logan Thomas – Washington Football Team (TE5)

I had Thomas as a start last week, and he rewarded you by finishing as the TE2 on the week. Thomas has not seen less than four targets in a game the entire season and saw a season-high 15 with Haskins under center. Even if Haskins isn’t the signal-caller Sunday, Thomas has become one of the best sleeper tight end options this season.

Noah Fant – Denver Broncos (TE7)

Fant had his best fantasy game of the season in Week 15, and he appears to have the momentum moving forward in Week 16. He gets the Los Angeles Chargers, who have allowed the third-most touchdowns to the position. Also, add that when Fant played the Chargers earlier this year, he had a double-digit fantasy performance. 


Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams (TE17)

Don’t be fooled by Higbee’s double-digit performance and believe this is a sign of things to come. Higbee had a great matchup against the Jets and capitalized on it. Before his Week 15 performance, he had only two top-ten tight end finishes on the year. He will now get the Seahawks, who have allowed the fifth-fewest points to the position when playing in Seattle.

Irv Smith Jr – Minnesota Vikings (TE21)

Kyle Rudolph appears to be a long shot to play again this week but do not chase the appeal of Irv Smith. He gets a very tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints, who have been very good against the tight ends not named Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and Robert Tonyan.

Eric Ebron – Pittsburgh Steelers (TE13)

Ebron was quickly ruled out after taking a huge hit in Week 15, so there is a chance he might not play, which will make this decision easier. The matchup is tough as the Colts have allowed the second-fewest touchdowns on the season to tight ends and the 4th fewest fantasy points to the position.
