Erik Smith’s TE Rankings
- Tyler Conklin was back to a 75% snap share last week and has 16 touchdowns over the past two weeks if you are looking for a streaming option. Conklin spiked two touchdowns last week, and while he’s not as safe of an option as he was earlier in the season with Joe Flacco chucking the ball, he’s a fine streamer who isn’t all that far off from any of the other options in the TE10-16 range.
- If you want to live dangerously, Isaiah Likely is out there in 75% of Yahoo! leagues and could be an upside play if Mark Andrews can’t get healthy. It’s a big risk, as the Ravens play on Monday night, but I’m a bit skeptical about Andrews’ health. He returned last week from his knee injury to play only 10 snaps before injuring his shoulder, and while the team is downplaying the severity, Baltimore has a bye after this week and would be wise to be cautious. Likely racked up a 20% target share and a 67% snap share last week in Andrews’ absence, and would rank as high as TE10 for me if Andrews sits out. Juwan Johnson would be a fine desperation option in the Monday night game if Andrews was announced ready for a full slate of snaps before kickoff.
