Dawson Knox, Tyler Higbee, and Logan Thomas provide much-needed depth at tight end in Week 10 fantasy football rankings
For Fantasy purposes, how many tight ends can you rely on? There could be as many as a dozen in Week Ten, I believe. Whether Logan Thomas is freed from the IR, and to a lesser extent, if Trevor Lawrence’s ankle injury holds him out, will determine this. The list of players I’d be comfortable starting could easily go on for a dozen names.
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Tyler Higbee has a high percentage of targets within the 10-yard line and is among the top 10 in the NFL across all positions. At any time, his fortunes could change. In addition, the return of Noah Fant off the reserve/COVID-19 list and the recovery of Dawson Knox from a broken hand might make him a deadly red-zone target for Josh Allen.
Although we’ve been duped in the past, the tight end position appears to be improving.
Week 10’s tight end rankings are in, so here they are. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Heath Cummings are all ranked here for your viewing pleasure. Throughout the week, we’ll be updating this page with new notes and rankings, so make sure you bookmark it.
Week 10 TE Rankings
- Travis Kelce @LV
- Darren Waller vs. KC
- George Kittle vs. LAR — Kittle made his return in Week 9 and was back to being an elite performer. The only concern might be that he was still behind Deebo Samuel in the target hierarchy, while Brandon Aiyuk matched him in targets. If the 49ers don’t throw it 40 times — and they rarely do — it might be tougher for him to stand out.
- Mark Andrews @MIA
- Kyle Pitts @DAL — Pitts hasn’t been great in two of the three games without Calvin Ridley, which is a little bit concerning, but not enough for me to really move him down much in the rankings. Especially because Dallas is a much easier matchup than New Orleans.
- T.J. Hockenson @PIT
- Mike Gesicki vs. BAL
- Dalton Schultz vs. ATL — I’m starting to get a little bit concerned about Schultz, who had just five targets in Week 9 and now has to contend with Michael Gallup for additional target competition. A good game in this one would go a long way toward easing those concerns.
- Dallas Goedert @DEN
- Dan Arnold @IND — Arnold has a 20% target share over the past four games on a team averaging nearly 40 pass attempts per game. As long as that continues, he’s going to be a viable starting Fantasy TE.
