Streaming Tight Ends: Week 4 Targets
The tight end position has been anything but consistent so far in 2020. If the one you drafted has underperformed or you had streaming in mind when constructing your teams this draft season, I have you covered. As a strategy, streaming aims to find players with above-average matchups, which can hopefully translate to fantasy 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.
Our goal in all this is starting tight end results. In Week 3, my top suggestion, and best streamer was Mo Alie-Cox, whose 12.5 half-PPR points equated to fantasy TE5 numbers. So far, 4for4’s optimal streamer boasts 43.4 total points—good enough for the overall fantasy TE2 on the season.
In order to provide advice you can actually implement, candidates for streaming must be rostered in no more than 40% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues.

Dalton Schultz (Cowboys) vs. Browns
Week 3 was just okay for Dalton Schultz, as he posted four catches for 48 yards, but we knew his competition would limit tight end production. This week, Dallas gets a home contest in Jerry World where they face a Browns defense ranked 30th in TE aFPA, one that surrendered 20.3 half-PPR points to Mark Andrews in Week 1, then followed that up by allowing C.J. Uzomah and Drew Sample to lay a combined 20.2 half-PPR points on them.
Schultz is currently rostered in 31% of Yahoo! leagues so there’s a decent chance he can be your Week 4 warrior in the tight end department.
