Travis Kelce, Kansas City (BYE)
Mark Andrews, Baltimore (vs. Cleveland)
T.J. Hockenson, Minnesota (vs. New Orleans)
Sam LaPorta, Detroit (at Los Angeles Chargers)
ROLL THEM OUT
Hunter Henry, New England (vs. Indianapolis): New England desperately needs someone to step up in the passing same. Perhaps this week it will be Henry against an Indianapolis team giving up the sixth-most PPR points per game to tight ends.
Hayden Hurst, Carolina (at Chicago): At this point I think the scheduling gods are just trolling us — Hurst continues to have great matchups week after week. No team has allowed more PPR points per game to tight ends this year than Chicago.
Dalton Kincaid, Buffalo (vs. Denver): Since Dawson Knox went down, Kincaid has been nothing short of remarkable, posting Top 5 fantasy numbers at his position over the past several weeks. That should continue Monday in a favorable fantasy matchup with Denver.
Dalton Schultz, Houston (at Cincinnati): Schultz had a huge game last week against Tampa Bay, hauling in 10 passes for 130 yards. Now he gets to face a Cincinnati team surrendering the third-most PPR points per game to tight ends.
SIT THEM DOWN
Jake Ferguson, Dallas (vs. New York Giants): Ferguson has had his moments as a rookie, including seven catches for 91 yards and a score a week ago against Philadelphia. But no team in the NFC has allowed fewer PPR points per game to tight ends this season than the Giants, believe it or not.
David Njoku, Cleveland (at Baltimore): In each of the last two games, Njoku has caught four passes, scored a touchdown and posted 12-plus PPR points. But as is the case at other positions, Baltimore is a flat-out terrible fantasy matchup in 2023.
Cade Otton, Tampa Bay (vs. Tennessee): Otton had a big game in last week’s shootout loss to Houston, finding the end zone twice. But Tennessee has surrendered the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends this season.
Kyle Pitts, Atlanta (at Arizona): This one admittedly makes me want to bang my head against a wall, but between Pitts’ lack of usage in favor of Jonnu Smith (“WTF”) and a bad fantasy matchup for tight ends with Arizona, another down week is probably coming.
