Tight Ends

Mark Andrews: Andrews had his best performance of the season this week against the Colts scoring 41.7 points. He caught 11 of his 13 targets for 147 yards and two touchdowns. Andrews saw very high volume this week and managed to get his second 100 yard game this season. Next week he should be started at tight end against the Chargers but you shouldn’t expect these kinds of numbers.

David Njoku: Njoku had his best game of the season, finishing with more catches in this game than he has had all year. Scoring 27.9 fantasy points off of seven receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown, Njoku played very well. However, Njoku is not a viable fantasy option until he proves that he can consistently produce.

Kyle Pitts: Pitts had the best game of his young career in London, catching nine passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. Pitts finished with 26.9 points in what could be a turning point in his rookie season. While Pitts is one of the most talented young players in the league, he is not a great fantasy player until he shows consistency. 

Dawson Knox: Although Knox only had three catches this week, he was still able to break 20 points for the second time this season, finishing the game with a total of 20.7 points. Finding the endzone for a fifth time this season, Knox finished the game with 117 yards and a touchdown. Knox is a key factor in the Buffalo Bills offense, and if he consistently scores touchdowns could be one of the best fantasy tight ends this season. 

Hunter Henry: After a slow start to the season, Henry is progressively becoming the TE1 for New England. In a comeback victory over the Texans, Henry caught six passes for 75 yards and a touchdown to finish with 19.5 points. Henry is becoming a solid fantasy option and has a great matchup against the Cowboys next week. 

Dalton Schultz: Schultz has been one of the best fantasy tight ends this year and continued to produce this week, catching six passes for 79 yards in the Cowboys blowout victory over the Giants. In an explosive Cowboys’ offense, Schultz has the potential to be one of the best fantasy tight ends each week and could have another big game next week against the Patriots.
