It is not a enjoyable week to be on the lookout for a streamer tight finish in PPR codecs. Darren Waller, the NFL’s most focused tight finish, is on a bye together with three different strong quantity guys (Jared Cook dinner, Hunter Henry, and Greg Olsen). Consequently, our Week 6 fantasy PPR TE rankings are weaker than traditional, and a lot of the sleepers to focus on are, sadly, TD-dependent.
It is not all unhealthy information at tight finish. George Kittle, Travis Kelce, and Mark Andrews all have fairly favorable matchups in Week 6. If you happen to personal a type of three gamers, you are in fine condition as all the time. Past them, it will get dicier, however there are nonetheless a few strong streaming choices.
Notably, Eric Ebron is accessible and has a very good matchup towards a Browns group that entered Week 5 permitting the fifth-most fantasy factors per recreation to TEs. He’s owned in fewer than 50 % of Yahoo leagues, so he is a worthwhile pickup regardless of his questionable palms. If not him, Jordan Akins, who’s changing into extra concerned as a pass-catcher within the Texans’ offense, might be a strong possibility. He’s averaging three.eight targets per recreation however noticed seven in a single contest earlier this season. If he can get that form of quantity towards a Titans protection that has had points towards TEs, he may flip right into a sneaky-good play. So may Trey Burton (vs. Bengals), who has seen 5 targets in every of his first two video games with the Colts.
It is also value noting that T.J. Hockenson (Lions) and Robert Tonyan (Packers) are getting back from byes this week. Hockenson is averaging 5 targets per recreation and has grabbed a few TDs this season, andTonyan is an rising risk who has scored 5 occasions in his previous three video games. The duo won’t be “positive issues,” however they’ve comparatively excessive flooring and will have sufficient alternatives to make an influence in PPR codecs.
