Tight End has been a burning dumpster this whole, entire season, so it is no surprise that you’ve been probably had your tight ends on a carousel. As you gear up for week 15, I’ll give you streaming and daily options with some potential upside but may also come with some risks.
Jordan Reed is going up against a Carolina Panthers defense that has had a problem covering the Tight End all season. Jordan Reed returned last week but was limited in his production. Here is your risk/reward either Reed is going to bounce back and give you a decent game or he is going to flop. Vernon Davis could be a potential pickup but this could be a guessing game for fantasy owners.
Who saw this one coming? Reed played 10 snaps last week and like I mentioned above was pretty ineffective. Davis is going against a Carolina defense that just is not very good against the pass. I would look to go with Reed first, if he can’t go, I believe Davis will be able to provide some production
Pass defense for the Titans has been an issue and Kelce is suiting up for a prime home match-up. Kelce has gone 4 straight games of 100 yards and it has been one of the best stretches of his career. The Titans defense has some weak spots so look for Alex Smith to exploit them.
Green has an issue of getting onto the field due to run blocking issues but when he is on the field of play he is receiving targets. Look for Green to receive some targets in a game that probably won’t see a lot of scoring.
Bennett came off a statline of 4/70/1 against the Ravens in week 14. Although he has been limited in his practice, look for Bennett to continue his consistency. Gronk is out and we are not quite sure what the role of Michael Floyd will be just quite yet.
DFS Pick – Tyler Eifert
Going up against the Steelers Eifert will be a great play for DFS. Eifert should be Andy Dalton’s best option and expect Eifert to see many targets in the contest. Monitor the status of A.J. Green going forward, if he is out this gives Eifert a ton of value.
