For the first time all season-closing week, the “play-your-tight-end-against-Arizona” method backfired, as Tyler Eifert had merely two catches and didn’t price. Don’t worry, though: We’re nonetheless going once more to that properly in Week 6, as confirmed by Austin Hooper’s No. 2 place in our TE rankings. You are probably shocked by that, nonetheless, it is deserved. Hooper’s obtained 8.4 targets per sport this yr, catching as a minimum six in 4 out of 5 video games. Some of his manufacturing has can be found in garbage time, nonetheless, fantasy elements are fantasy elements.
Hooper couldn’t unseat Travis Kelce on the excessive of our rankings, nonetheless, Kelce might very nicely be affected going forward if the ankle injury Patrick Mahomes sustained in Week 5 is worse than anticipated. Hooper is joined by George Kittle (@ Rams) and Zach Ertz (@ Vikings) in some other case a daily greater tier.
WEEK 6 NON-PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running once more | Wide receiver | D/ST | Kicker
Then Will Dissly is offered in. He’s confirmed he isn’t a fluke. He was drafted as a block-first tight end, nonetheless, someplace between his time on the University of Washington and now, he turns into pretty the purpose for Russell Wilson. If you snagged Dissly off the waiver wire, don’t even consider dropping him. He ought to possibly start for you the rest of the easiest way.
WEEK 6 PPR RANKINGS: Running once more | Wide receiver | Tight end
If you aren’t as lucky and have not received a top-end TE, you could want to keep participating within the matchups. Vernon Davis (if healthful) and Mike Gesicki face off throughout the Redskins-Dolphins sport, which ought to see a great deal of offensive manufacturing in a gathering of two unhealthy teams. Broncos rookie Noah Fant (vs. Titans) will get to face a Tennessee safety that’s been fourth-worst in the direction of the place in fantasy elements this season. If you’re super decided, you probably can try a Browns’ TE in the direction of Seattle, who’s given up the third-most receiving yards to the place in 2019, although whether or not or not that’s Demetrius Harris or Ricky Seals-Jones stays to be seen.
Two tight ends that had been afterthoughts sooner than Week 5 have to be excellent choices in some Week 6 lineups. Gerald Everett had his full breakout on Thursday night, exhibiting good chemistry with Jared Goff and strong working after the catch. He ought to possibly start as a fantasy TE until he slows down. And for the Jets, Chris Herndon returns from suspension and is a borderline fantasy starter as long as Sam Darnold is healthful.
A reminder, Week 6 is the first week with 4 teams on bye. The tight ends of this week are Darren Waller, Dawson Knox, Trey Burton, Eric Ebron, and Jack Doyle.
Note: These rankings will possibly be up to date all by means of the week, so confirm once more for the latest.
