Streaming Tight Ends: Week 13 Targets

It’s lucky Week 13, and with the tight end landscape as ridiculously barren as it is, streaming may be your best way to get points from the position moving forward. As a strategy, streaming aims to find players with above-average matchups, which can hopefully translate to TE1 production for your fantasy squad.

For streaming purposes, 4for4’s Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed (aFPA) is a metric we rely heavily on to determine weekly matchup strength. As the season continues to progress and more data is available, aFPA becomes more and more reliable, using rolling 10-week data. Targets and efficiency metrics are also considered when choosing weekly streamers.

4for4 rankings also come into play here and should always be considered when making league-specific roster decisions.

Both Jonnu Smith and Chris Herndon cracked the top 10 in PPR points in Week 12, making this lady proud. After 12 weeks of football, our optimal TE streamer has 177.2 PPR fantasy points—good enough for TE3 on the season thus far. On to Week 13, and the players who can help you in your playoff quest.

In order to provide advice that you can actually implement, candidates for tight end streaming consideration must be owned in no more than 40 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues.

Top Streaming Picks

Gerald Everett, (Rams) @ Lions

The second-year TE now has three touchdowns and a two-point conversion in his last three contests and seems to be reaping the benefits of Cooper Kupp’s absence. Everett has the third most receptions among Rams pass catchers inside the 20-yard line this season and is fourth in PPR points since Week 9.

Rested after a Week 12 bye, the Rams head to Detroit to face a Lions defense ranked 21st in TE aFPA. With Los Angeles playing as well as they have been, it behooves us all to have a piece of the Rams’ offense on any fantasy roster. Rostered in just nine percent of Yahoo leagues, Everett (or even his fellow TE Tyler Higbee) makes an attractive streamer for Week 13.

C.J. Uzomah, (Bengals) vs. Broncos
