Fantasy TE PPR Rankings Week 16: Who to start, sit at tight end in fantasy football

Our Week 16 fantasy TE PPR rankings could possibly be flipped the other way up earlier than the end of the week due to all of the COVID insanity happening, however for now, we’ll work with what we’ve got and make it easier to resolve who to begin and who to sit at tight end.

It’s price noting Darren Waller (knee) could possibly be again this week, however T.J. Hockenson is finished for the 12 months after having surgical procedure on his thumb. Travis Kelce (vs. Steelers), Mark Andrews (@ Bengals), and George Kittle (@ Titans) have all re-joined the elite class of tight ends after temporary hiatuses, however we are able to by no means have sufficient producers at the place.

WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running again | Wide receiver | D/ST | Kicker

As loopy as this sounds, James O’Shaugnessy (@ Jets) may need the most secure flooring in PPR leagues amongst potential streamers. The matchup with the Jets is powerful, and Jags’ tight ends have loved loads of targets all season lengthy. Of course, his ceiling is restricted by a nasty Jaguars’ offense, however if you happen to want some low-cost and simple factors, he is your man. If you need to chase as a lot upside as potential, C.J. Uzomah (vs. Ravens) might be the most effective wager. He’s produced TE1 weeks a number of instances and has been the general TE1 twice this season. Low flooring, excessive ceiling — is not that was the fantasy playoffs are all about? 

WEEK 16 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running again | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Other viable streamer choices embody Cole Kmet (@ Seahawks), Even Engram (@ Eagles), Jared Cook (@ Texans), Albert Okwuegbunam (@ Raiders). Each most likely has the next upside than O’Shaugnessy however a decrease upside than Uzomah. Which participant is finest on your crew is dependent upon what you want this week.

We’re out on the Browns’ TEs (@ Packers), Tyler Higbee (@ Vikings), Tyler Conklin (vs. Rams), and Gerald Everett (vs. Bears) this week. All are higher suited as touchdown-or-bust choices in commonplace leagues, and for the reason that matchups are unfavorable, we’re not trusting them in the fantasy playoffs. However, we do like season-long bust Noah Fant (@ Raiders) and weekly begin ’em, sit ’em headache Zach Ertz (@ Colts), each of whom get among the prime TE matchups.

Again, be ready with a backup as a result of any of your must-start studs may pop up on the reserve/COVID record. Unlike RB and even WR, you’ll be able to’t actually handcuff your TE in most instances, so you’ve to examine the matchups and have your pivot prepared. It’s not enjoyable to cope with these items in the course of the fantasy playoffs, however nobody mentioned profitable a title could be straightforward.
