Tight End Streamers Week 13 – Shooting for the Moon

Welcome to Tight End Streamers Week 13, the home for fantasy owners without the good fortune to own Rob Gronkowski, Zach Ertz, and Travis Kelce. As I’m sure many of us do, I pray nightly to give thanks for Tyler Kroft. After he obligingly cashed in on the Browns generosity to tight ends, he finished as the TE11. If only all other streaming options were as accommodating. Marcedes Lewis caught just one of two targets on his way to TE41 numbers (one catch for 10 yards), while Adam Shaheen got off to something like a fast start against the Eagles. He was targeted and caught a one-yard pass on the Bears very first offensive play… and wasn’t targeted again. But what about the good news on Tyler Kroft, eh? So that was last week, what is in store for Week 13? As usual, we’ll be looking at players available in more than 50 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. This means that plumb matchups like Hunter Henry (owned in 62.2 percent of leagues) against the Browns, Delanie Walker (93.1 percent) against the Texans, and Jason Witten (83.8 percent) will not feature here. Before I go further, I will stress that Kroft is once again something of an option this week, as he is available in 59.7 percent of leagues. But he faces a Steelers defense that has allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to TEs this season. I wouldn’t trust him too much. Ownership figures correct as of time of writing.
