Erik Smith’s TE Rankings
- Greg Dulcich is back on the streaming radar with an 8 target game last week. The problem for Dulcich has been the low passing volume and struggles of the Denver offense as a whole, but a matchup in Kansas City should force their hand as they play from behind.
- Daniel Bellinger returned from injury last week to play 97% of the snaps, and he caught all five of his targets in the process. The yardage ceiling is low and his touchdown potential isn’t great, but Bellinger should be a decent floor option that is available in nearly every single redraft league.
- As more injuries pop up in New Orleans (Juwan Johnson, Mark Ingram), Taysom Hill becomes more and more reasonable of a “tight end” option. He’s always going to be hit or miss due to a lack of consistency in the passing game, but the Saints are simply running out of options in this offense.
- Tight ends with a 20% or greater target share last week: Greg Dulcich (38%), Cole Kmet (28%), Travis Kelce (26%), Evan Engram (21%), Chigoziem Okonkwo (20%), Dalton Schultz (20%), Austin Hooper (20%), Tyler Higbee (20%).
