Tight End Streamers: Week 9

Welcome to Tight End Streamers Week 9. If you weren’t streaming before the injuries to Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed, Tyler Eifert, and Charles Clay. You probably are now. Especially with all of the byes. We’re glad to have you with us. In a week with two truly outstanding fantasy performances at tight end … our streamers were not among them. Things seemed to be starting well when Ben Watson found the end zone on Thursday night against the Dolphins, but he managed just 2.6 more points than the six that gave him. He eventually ended Week 8 as the TE13. Not disastrous, but still somewhat disappointing. Tyler Kroft managed a single point more than Watson, as his five catches for 46 yards was good enough for TE11. As for Nick O’Leary, his 1.5 PPR points helped precisely nobody. So where do we go in Week 9? As usual, we will be looking at three TEs who are owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues. This means we will be forced to look away from Zach Ertz and his matchup with the Broncos or Evan Engram as he takes on the Los Angeles Rams. But I still have three solid options that should help owners in this upcoming slate of games, especially with the likes of Hunter Henry, Antonio Gates, Rob Gronkowski and Kyle Rudolph all on bye weeks. Ownership figures correct as of time of writing

    0.5 ppr, need a TE to fill in for Reed, lost out on waivers for Vernon Davis. Kroft and Doyle have been rostered for a while. Currently have Ryan Griffin vs Indy. Other intriguing waiver options are AJ Derby @ Philly (Osweiler threw to his TE a ton last year), Tyler Higbee @ NYG (Giants suck vs TE), Jonnu Smith vs Baltimore (if Delanie is out). Also Kittle, Bennett, Ebron are available. Thanks for your help. @Ndutton @ndutton13
