Week 5 Tight End Streamers

With Week 5 comes the beginning of the accursed bye weeks and a time when streaming can become somewhat tricky. It is fortunate for you then, dear reader, that our suggestions are coming in after a hot Week 4. In Cameron Brate, Charles Clay, and Evan Engram – last week’s streaming options – we had the TE2, TE4, and TE7 in PPR scoring. All three outscored their GLSP projections too, so it was clearly their production that propelled them to the heights and not the general ineptitude of others at that position. With the likes of Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis and Austin Hooper all sitting down this week alongside the crocked Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert, who do we have to offer? As usual, we are looking at players who are available in at least 50 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. It is for this reason that we say goodbye to Clay (now on a roster in over 75 percent of leagues) and must ignore Jared Cook (64.4). This is somewhat annoying given Cook’s matchup against the profligate Ravens, but with Derek Carr likely to be a multi-week absentee, it is doubtful I would advise even my worst enemy to have any part of an E.J. Manuel-led offense — although Manuel has shown some chemistry with TEs in the past. manuel
