Week 12 TE Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • November 24, 2018

Each week, as we prepare to make some difficult lineup decisions, our team, which includes Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto, will bring you a few sleepers and landmines for each position. This week, Ryan is out, but you still get two guys to put in your lineup and two guys to avoid! Our sleeper picks could be on your waiver wire or a low-priced DFS target or could simply be going overlooked this week. On the other hand, our landmine players are getting attention, too much attention. These are players we feel are being overvalued and overpriced and would avoid for this week.

SLEEPERS

Mike Gesicki $3,000

Miami rookie TE Mike Gesicki has endured a disappointing first season in the league but this week, he gets his starting QB Ryan Tannehill back for the first time in over a month. The bad news is that Gesicki only has one top 20 performance all season, but he is certainly set up to earn his second against the Colts in Week Twelve. The Colts have allowed seven TE1 games this season, which is the second-most in the league. Also, the Dolphins listed WRs DeVante Parker and Danny Amendola as questionable. Either or both of those players sitting out would further boost Gesicki’s opportunity. – Ryan McDowell

Nick Vannett $3,400

Eight tight ends have found their way to double-digit point totals against the Carolina Panthers this season. Nine times they have found the end zone. That list includes Uzomah, Davis, Hurst, Goedert and James. Not exactly The Who’s who of tight ends. Vannett has been worked in more in recent weeks and while the receptions might not reflect that the touchdowns do with two in the last three weeks. Before last week, against the Lions who fail to realize tight end is a position in the NFL, the Panthers has given up seven tight end touchdowns in five games. This is a nice sneaky spot to play Vannett.. – Sal Leto

Jonnu Smith $3,300

I am going right back to the well with Smith after he rewarded owners with a productive if uninspiring 6-44 line in Week 11. Smith has quietly put forth quality efforts in three straight weeks and has finally established himself as a part of the offense following Delanie Walker’s season-ending injury. Houston is stout on defense but is middle of the road against Tight Ends. If Tennessee is to move to football, it is likely to be via the air with Houston simply locking down opposing backfields. There are questions under center with Marcus Mariota questionable, but Smith earned four targets from both Mariota and backup Blaine Gabbert last week. Each has at least a modicum of trust in him, and he is not far removed from being a Top 100 pick in the 2017 draft. Smith’s talent is finally meshing with the Titans’ scheme, making him a potential streaming option down the stretch. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Evan Engram $5,500

Even when facing the Eagles decimated secondary, it is hard to trust second-year TE Evan Engram of the Giants. After a top-five season as a rookie, Engram has been one of the season’s most disappointing players this season. Engram has exceeded four receptions just once since Week Two and only has two touchdowns on the season. Very simply, he is the fourth option in this passing game. – Ryan McDowell

Rob Gronkowski $6,200

I know he’s back you’ve waited patiently and more than likely he will be in yours and the Patriots starting lineups but are you sure you want to do that? Are we convinced he’s fully healthy? Is he going to be used as a decoy? I can’t answer these questions and I know damn well we won’t get anything from Belichick to clear it up. After week one’s tight end one overall performance it just didn’t look like the same guy out there. Then he missed week seven and came back for eight then he left and hasn’t been seen since. Hard to keep him on the bench but the Jets have also been one of the best defenses against tight ends on the season and the Pats have found a lot of other weapons to fill the void while he’s been away. – Sal Leto

David Njoku $5,200

After looking like an ascending star at the position early in the year, Njoku has fallen flat recently. It is not for lack of talent. Instead, his volume has become modest, with only six targets over Freddie Kitchens’ two games as Offensive Coordinator. Volume was a driving force behind his early-season surge, and recent trends are concerning. Even in a plus matchup against a Cincinnati defense which does not seem to do anything well, Njoku is a fade until we see his usage back on the upswing. On a positive note, Baker Mayfield has been hot in Kitchens’ two games calling plays. If the target pendulum swings back to Njoku, this prognostication could prove foolish. – Rob Willette
