Streaming Tight Ends: Week 5 Targets

Now that we are a month into the fantasy football season, we're beginning to accrue enough data points to stream onesie positions with utmost confidence.

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.
