Week 4 Start ‘Em: Tight Ends
Ivan Ingram in Ram
Engram is a disappointment for fantasy fans scoring less than six fantasy points in two of their first three matches. However, I remain confident, as he averages 57 snaps per game and is tied for sixth place in goals between tight ends. Engram also has a positive matchup against Ram, who surrendered a touchdown and a pair of 18.4 Fantasy points to Tyler Croft a week ago. Daniel Jones is also tied for fifth among quarterbacks to target tight ends, which benefits Engram.
Hunter Henry in Buccaneers
Henry posted a respectable 10 fantasy points last week, and has now scored double-digit points in four straight games dating back to 2019. He is fourth in tight ends in goals (23), and Justin Herbert has leaned on him in passing games since his entry in the starting lineup. This week’s matchup also looks good, as the Buccaneers have handed a combined 10 catches to Jared Cook and Noah Phantom, facing fantasy-relevant tight ends in their two 2020 games.
TJ Hockenson vs Saints
Hockenson lost a touchdown to Jessie James and did not hit a big line last week against the Cardinals, but he was targeted seven times and played 55 snaps. I like him as a low-end fantasy starter this week, as the Saints visit Ford Field in a game with 54-plus / less on the DK Sportsbook. New Orleans has also been battered by Darren Waller (28.5 points) and Robert Tonyan (16 points) over the past two weeks, so the unit is hit by tight ends (27.3 PPG) in 2020.
Dalton Shultes vs Brown
Shultes did not put up a big stat line last week (8.8 points), but he saw six goals in Seattle. He now scores 16 goals in his final two games, and the upcoming matchup against Brown makes him a viable dreamer. The unit has allowed third-most catches (22) and third-most fantasy points (19.3 PPG) to resist tight ends, which is good for Schultz. In addition, the Duck presscott leads the NFL in pass attempts, and he ranks eighth among quarterbacks in targeting tight ends.

Week 4 Sit Them: Tight Ends
Sitting of the week
Jimmy Graham vs Colts
Graham is coming off a 10-target, two-touchdown game in a win over the Falcons, making him a popular addition to the waiver wire. He is also eighth in the race and seventh in passing between tight ends. Regardless, I’ll fade the veteran based on the matchup against the Colts which is favorable. The unit is tough on tight ends, grabbing two catches on average for 32 yards and only 3.1 imaginary points per game. Keep Graham aside.
Austin Hopper in Cowboys
This week’s matchup against the Cowboys is favorable on paper, but Hooper’s use (or lack thereof) is a matter of serious concern. He is 23rd in the routes he runs between tight ends, and nearly half of the snaps he plays are run plays. It is no surprise in an offense with two stars backing (Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt) and a quarterback in Baker Mayfield, who finished 27th in pass attempts. So, while Dallas is a formidable opponent, because of its Swiss cheese defense, the Hopper remains a fade.
Rob Gronkowski vs Chargers
Gronkowski showed some signs of life a week ago, posting six catches on seven goals in a win over the Broncos. He continues to share tight end duties with OJ Howard; However, about 45 percent of his offensive snacks resulted in a running play. So while the possible absence of both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (shoulder) could open up a few more goals, Gronkowski isn’t sure a very tough Chargers pass will produce against the defense.
Jack dole at bear
Doyle has said that “Valley Pipped”, as Mo Ali-Cox was the Colts top tight end last week. However, Doyle was active, at least in terms of his position. He was on a milk carton in the stat sheet against the Jets, as the veteran had not seen a single goal despite running more routes (16 to 8) and playing nearly 36 (32 to 32) snaps as his teammate. Was. Whether such a tight end committee is watching, starting Doyle is not the recommended course of action this week.
