Top TE Streamers for Week 7
Daniel Bellinger, New York Giants
Well, someone on the New York Giants has to be catching the ball. With injuries across the receiving room, head coach Brian Daboll has been scraping production from whoever he can as he deals with Daniel Jones’ limitations. The bigger winner from this team’s first six weeks is rookie Daniel Bellinger.
The rookie is coming off his best fantasy performance yet, scoring his second touchdown of the season and tallying five catches for 38 yards. With two receiving scores and a rushing touchdown, Bellinger is proving to be a weapon for a team that has to continue being creative in order to score. He’s now TE11 despite missing the first game of the year.
Set to face Jacksonville in Week 7, Bellinger has a decent shot of continuing his solid run of production. The Jaguars are average in fantasy points allowed to the position but have also benefitted from facing offenses that don’t prioritize the position.
Bellinger is only on two percent of Yahoo and ESPN rosters despite being a rising option for managers. His availability and prospective matchup against Seattle’s awful defense in Week 8 before his bye week makes Bellinger a sneaky sharp pickup this week.
Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins
I feel like we can say Mike Gesicki is a tight end with nine lives. He’s been either excellent or completely non-existent for Miami this season. But with his breakout in Week 6 against Minnesota that netted six receptions for 69 yards and two touchdowns, he’s now TE8 in standard leagues. I’d expect more success to come as Tua Tagovailoa is working towards returning to the field sooner than later.
Gesicki’s athleticism can pulverize a limited, unexplosive Pittsburgh Steelers secondary if he’s given the chance. But that’s the bet on Gesicki. His usage has unbelievable splits, varying in his snap counts and route participation. He ranks just 24th in route participation despite being fifth in yards per target, first in true catch rate, and 11th in yards per reception.
Mike McDaniel is a smart head coach and Miami has done extremely well to get so much receiving production out of this offense. There’s no guarantee Gesicki will be a major player this week, but if you’re in a pinch for a streamer, he has a higher upside than his available peers.
You can find Gesicki available in 76 percent of Yahoo leagues and 59 percent of ESPN leagues.
Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers
It’s time to roster Robert Tonyan if you need a tight end. With a 66 percent snap share and third-most routes run in Week 6, Big Bob is looking healthier as the games go by. That’s great news considering how productive he’s been when given the chance.
Tonyan is one of the most efficient pass-catchers at the position, reeling in 27-of-32 targets for 219 yards and two touchdowns. With 12 targets alone last week, the bulk of his production has come recently. We want to continue riding that wave.
Rostered in only 42 percent of Yahoo and 27 percent of ESPN leagues, Tonyan will be a popular waiver wire add this week. He’s facing a defense that has performed well against tight ends, though. Washington hasn’t done much effectively this season but they do rank as the third-best defense against the tight end position.
Take this into consideration if you only need a one-week streamer and other options exist. Otherwise, Tonyan is a good bet for the rest of the campaign because his floor is higher and he’s seeing a better ceiling than expected.
