Streaming Tight Ends: Week 11 Targets
The tight end wasteland we have come to expect this season continues to roll along. And to top it off, we’ll be without the use of four teams’ players as the Titans, Seahawks, Giants and Packers are all on a bye and watching from the comfort of where they choose to take in the Week 11 contests.
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.
Jack Doyle was the sole TE1 of my recommendations on the week with 13.4 PPR points, checking in with the ninth-highest total at the position. Our goal in all this is starting tight end results and after 10 weeks, 4for4’s optimal streamer has scored 147.1 PPR points, which equates to TE3 numbers on the season.
In order to provide advice you can actually implement, candidates for streaming must be owned in no more than 40% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues.
Top Streaming Picks
Tyler Eifert (Bengals) @ Raiders
It has come to this. Eifert is my top streamer of the week and I actually feel better about it than I thought I would. He’s made it through 10 weeks of the season without getting hurt and should be the main target for rookie quarterback Ryan Finley moving forward.
This week, he gets a plum matchup against the Raiders, who sit a dismal 29th in aFPA to tight ends, surrendering 15.7 PPR points to the position weekly in 2019. Rostered by only 8% of Yahoo! players, Eifert should be available for streamers this week. As an added bonus, he also faces soft opponents the next three contests.
