NFL DFS TE Recommendations Week Three: A Good Tight End is Hard to Find

By Travis Pulver - 6 years ago in Daily Fantasy, NFL News

Tight ends are one of those positions that can save the day and put you in the money. But they can just as easily sink your daily fantasy roster because you spent too much on one of the top-flight guys and he didn’t produce.

Like any position, there is an element of risk to picking any player. It just seems that with tight ends, it is either feast or famine. This can, of course, make it difficult to figure out who you should start. But worry not—we’re here for you.

How about some DFS TE Recommendations?

Travis Kelce seems to be the top dog among tight ends right now; him and Rob Gronkowski, of course. As usual, either is an advisable play. The way Patrick Mahomes is slinging the ball everywhere, Kelce is bound to catch his fair share. Until the Patriots discover a decent wide receiver or two, Gronk remains Tom Brady’s top three choices on any given play.

But if you are open to other options, consider these guys:

•    George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers: He’s a big target, and against the porous Chiefs defense, maybe Jimmy Garoppolo finally gets on track. Since the Chiefs have been giving up a lot to tight ends this season, no reason to think Kittle can’t have a big game.
•    Trey Burton, Chicago Bears: The Bears are taking on a Cardinals team that is the definition o struggle. This should be a breakout game for Mitchell Trubisky. If it is, look for Burton to be one of the primary beneficiaries.
•    Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens: The Broncos have not been too tough on tight ends so far this season, and Andrews is probably the best of the bunch in Baltimore’s stable. There is no telling how much he’ll play so consider him a long shot at best. But if you blow your money on other spots and just need a warm body that might produce well….
•    Will Dissly, Seattle Seahawks: After a great game in Week One, he was a lot quieter in Week Two. But he could be the X-factor against a Cowboys team that is going to put a ton of pressure on Russell Wilson.

Best Bet?

This week, I’d suggest taking a gamble on your tight end and using more money elsewhere. Of the better affordable options, I can see Dissly acting as a lifeline for Russell Wilson as the Cowboys pass rush comes bearing down on him.
