Week 7 TE Sleepers and Landmines

by , and • October 20, 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

CJ Uzomah $4,400

The Bengals are missing tight ends Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft and as many expected, TE CJ Uzomah played a major role last week, catching six balls for 54 yards. This week, Uzomah faces the defensless Kansas City Chiefs who have already allowed four TE2 games, including a pair of top-five performances to Jesse James and George Kittle. The Chiefs allow over 16 fantasy points per game to the tight end position, the fourth-most in the league. – Ryan McDowell

Chris Herndon $3,000

Over the last three weeks, only five tight ends have averaged double-digit points. We know it’s slim pickings even more so with four teams on a bye. So let’s take a long shot. There was a solid buzz around Herndon in the preseason and we have seen him make some athletic plays in recent weeks. Last week he found the end zone for the first time and with Enunwa injured again the need for a big bodied target is open in this offense. The Vikings have not been the defense we saw a year ago and in full PPR have given up 15+ points a game to tight ends and three TEs have managed top seven weeks against them. – Sal Leto

Gerald Everett $3,100

Since making Gerald Everett their first pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Rams have not really found a path for him to post big numbers. An offense which has funneled through four players has left little room for anyone else to thrive, and Everett has logged an incredibly forgettable eight catches for 81 yards in 2018. But following the injury to Cooper Kupp, we get to see how the Rams pivot with one of their heavy volume guys out. It is possible looks simply ramp up for Robert Woods or Brandin Cooks, and also possible Josh Reynolds assumes Kupp’s role if not his production. However, Everett is dirt cheap. I should be priced at $3,100. It is worth finding out if Everett’s role finally expands. While the bar is low, Everett’s two best games have come in the past two weeks. Take a leap of faith with the former South Alabama star this week. – Rob Willette

LANDMINES

Trey Burton $4,900

The good news for fantasy players is that Bears first-year starting TE Trey Burton is currently a TE1. The bad news is that’s mostly due to his touchdown production and the injuries sustained by many other top tight ends. Burton has yet to exceed four receptions in any one game and has only eclipsed 60 receiving yards once. – Ryan McDowell

Greg Olsen $5,700

Olsen came back and the Panthers wasted no time putting him to work with a 98% snap rate and 21% target share in week six. Nice to see but it resulted in only a 16th overall tight end performance. The Eagles have been one of the more stout defenses facing tight ends this year and aside from a blown coverage long touchdown to OJ Howard in week two have not allowed another score. They are the only team to hold Eric Ebron to under double digits and no touchdowns. The Eagles have been much more susceptible to the big play wide receiver this season. – Sal Leto

Kyle Rudolph $5,600

Kyle Rudolph has chugged along as a productive tight end, especially given the hellscape which is the tight end position. However, Rudolph has done his best work in games which have gotten away from the Vikings. In comeback efforts against the Packers, Bills, and Rams, Rudolph was active in the passing game. As the Vikings defense has improved, looks have dried up, with Rudolph netting only nine targets over the past two weeks. The game against the Jets should provide a neutral or positive game script, and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are the only players in this offense who command looks each week. If the Vikings bring their effort from the past two weeks to New York, it could be another pedestrian boxscore for Rudolph. – Rob Willette
