Erik Smith’s TE Rankings
- Notable Week 4 snap shares: Dalton Schultz (90%), Hunter Henry (85%), Will Dissly (73%), Mo Alie-Cox (70%), Kyle Pitts (62%), Hayden Hurst (56%), Robert Tonyan (44%), Taysom Hill (20%), Albert Okwuegbunam (2%).
- As I’ve lamented on the podcast, what’s almost more disappointing than Kyle Pitts‘ lack of a breakout is his outright lack of a floor. Pitts has scored fewer than five PPR points in all but one game this season and comes off a Week 4 performance that saw him play on just 62% of the offensive snaps. In that game, the Falcons went full old-school run-game on us in the second half, a style of football that does not fit Pitts’ game. There’s still upside obviously, especially against a good Tampa Bay run defense this week, so I went to the Range Of Outcomes Tool to compare him to Gerald Everett. It’s relatively shocking to see Everett with a better chance of giving you a floor up to 7.3 points, but that’s just where we are at with Pitts. I’m playing him over Everett for the upside, but you have permission to bench him for any of the options above him this week.
- Tight ends with a 20% or greater target share in Week 4: Pat Freiermuth (36%), T.J. Hockenson (31%), Travis Kelce (29%), Tyler Higbee (29%), Dallas Goedert (25%), Kyle Pitts (22%), David Njoku (20%), Daniel Bellinger (20%), Hunter Henry (20%).
