Week 16 - Tight End Dart Throws
For those of you who made it to the championship, congratulations! For those of you who aren’t but still have something to play for, keep fighting. The tight end position is a must hit in order to win any week. Ideally you just want someone who won’t lose your week for you and I have you covered with the best dart throws of the week.
Jacob Hollister vs Arizona – Remember a few weeks ago when Jacob Hollister was a league winning tight end, and then he fell off the face of the earth? Well he’s your free square this week playing Arizona at home and his ownership has dipped below 50% on ESPN. Hollister should be considered a low-end tight end one with upside and a must start if you’re desperate.
Charles Clay @ Seattle – He's had one game above 10 PPR points this season. He’s an ugly pick, but Seattle is the second closest to Arizona in points allowed to the position and I imagine this match up being a shoot out of sorts. As Kyler Murray has become more comfortable as a QB in the NFL you want pieces attached to him. Clay is all ceiling this week but could certainly bring home a title for you if you’re in need.
Darren Fells @ Tampa Bay – Darren Fells has been a necessary piece in fantasy this season. He hasn’t been the best but he’s been a solid streaming option to anyone desperate. The Bucs defense can’t stop anything but the run, and the Tampa/Houston game could see the highest point total of the week. Fells is a mid-range TE2 with upside this week and won’t lose you your week.
OJ Howard vs Houston – I know all the OJ Howard truthers coming into this season didn’t think he’d be on a list of potential streamers. Houston has allowed the fourteenth most points to tight ends, on top of this the Bucs are without Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, which means there will be targets to go around. Howard has almost no ownership after a disappointing season so take a peak if you need to.
Kaeden Smith @ Washington – The biggest dart throw of the week, Evan Engram has officially been placed on injured reserve, and Kaeden Smith becomes the ‘tight end to own’ in New York. He wouldn’t be on this list if not for the fact he’s playing Washington who has gotten progressively worse at guarding the position this season as each week goes by. Smith has had two games with more than 10 fantasy points, so he has been used when the Giants need him. He’s worth a look, and could be a great GPP play this week.
