Tight Ends

C.J. Uzomah: Uzomah put up big numbers this week in a blowout win against the Ravens scoring 24.1 points. He was extremely efficient this week catching all three of his targets for 91 yards and two touchdowns. Although Uzomah does not get many targets he has scored five times in the last four games. He could be a viable option next week against the Jets who have a very poor defense. 

Kyle Pitts: The rookie picked up right where he left off before his bye week scoring 23.3 points against the Dolphins this Sunday. He caught seven of his eight targets for 163 yards averaging 23.3 yards a catch. Although he has only had one touchdown this season Pitts has now had back to back 100 yards games. With his high usage, Pitts is a solid choice at tight end next week against the Panthers. 

Mike Gesicki: Gesicki had another great game this week against the Falcons scoring 21.5 points. He caught seven of his eight targets for 85 yards and a touchdown. He led the team in reception this week and averaged 12.1 yards a catch. Next week he will face the Bills defense on the road which will be a difficult matchup. Gesicki is still a decent option at tight end next week but it would be worth looking at other options. 

Foster Moreau: With Waller’s absence Moreau was able to put up solid numbers this week against the Eagles. He caught all six of his targets for 60 yards and a touchdown. Moreau had more receptions this game than he has the rest of the season combined. Next week Moreau and the Raiders have a BYE week and then face off against the Giants. Waller will have a lot of time to recover and should be back by week eight which means Moreau will not get much attention. Although he had a good game you should not start him if Waller comes back. 

Robert Tonyan: Tonyan had his best game since week two scoring 16.3 points against the Washington Football Team this Sunday. He caught four of his five targets for a touchdown and 63 yards. Tonyan was finally able to be productive with the ball gaining more yards this week than he did the last four games combined. Next week he will face off against the Cardinals where he would be a solid option at tight end but you should still look around at other options.

Travis Kelce: Kelce had a solid performance this week in a bad loss against the Titans. He scored 13.5 points catching seven of his 12 targets for 65 yards. This is the fourth time Kelce has had 10 or more targets in five games. Next week he faces the Giants and is a must start because of his high volume of targets.
