Week 16 TE Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • December 22, 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. 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

Matt Lacosse $3,700

Week 12 when Heuerman was lost for the season Lacosse had jumped right in and looked like he would seamlessly take over. Then he had two total targets the the next two games. Last week that jumped up to six with a respectable 4-43 line. This week they take on rival Oakland on Monday night and the Raiders who are bad a basically everything are really bad facing tight ends. Tied for most touchdowns to the position and third most yardage relinquished. Will anyone be taking away from their Christmas Eve celebrating to watch this matchup? – Sal Leto

Blake Jarwin $3,600

I am back on Blake Jarwin this week. In a pathetic showing for the Dallas offense, Jarwin was still usable with a 4-45 line against the Colts, and the Cowboys return home for a date with a Buccaneers defense yielding the fifth-most receiving yards to the position. There’s a major need for a third playmaker in the Dallas offense, and while Jarwin is far from a sexy option, he fits the bill as a player matching opportunity with efficiency. At fantasy’s trashiest position, having two positive traits is more than enough to warrant a starting spot. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Kyle Rudolph $3,900

Last week I had him in as my Sleeper (insert eye roll emoji here) and he once again didn’t perform even in a plus matchup. I even made the seasonably obvious reindeer joke and nothing. So, Over the last ten games he’s hit double digit points in full PPR only once. Mostly because he just doesn’t score. In fact not since week three has he found the end zone. He had 63 yards three weeks ago and in those other nine of ten never went over 41 with five of them not breaking the 30’s. Detroit over their last six have allowed one touchdown to the position and 4-40 was the best stat line. Rudolph’s dismal season should continue. – Sal Leto

Vance McDonald $5,100

We’re not sprinting to our laptops to thrust Vance McDonald into our lineups. But I am still not a fan of the price here, nor am I bullish on streaming McDonald as my starting Tight End. He’s failed to eclipse 50 yards since Week 6, and the same contest was the last time he netted more than 4 receptions. The Saints destroy Tight Ends, allowing the third-fewest yards to the position as well as the third-fewest (tied) receptions. I get the position is an absolute wasteland, but I am not utilizing a Tight End with volume and matchup concerns in this ever important week. – Rob Willette
