Are you going through TE troubles? Injuries have already plagued a number of solid TEs this season, but there are still some worth your time that you may want to target at a reasonable price. Nobody in your league is going to let go of Gronkowski or Kelce without an enormous asking price. These TEs are worth a look and may be more available in your league:
Witten has started the season at an excellent pace, catching 17 passes in the first two games. He was slowed down by a stingy Arizona defense (1 catch for 3 yards), but the veteran is looking stronger than ever. He has already racked up 159 receiving yards and 2 TDs, a much faster pace than last season – 3 total TDs in 2016. With Dak Prescott coming along strong, Witten may potentially be in line for one of his best fantasy seasons in years.
The veteran TE came out to a hot start in his first two games. He has since been slowed, but he looked elusive for the Bears in last night’s TNF matchup against the Packers. He was only targeted twice, but the versatility he showed on his two receptions should attract Mike Glennon’s attention. He has yet to find the end zone this season, but should remain involved in the offense as long as the Bears aren’t turning it over. He recorded his most yardage of the season – 45 yards – and has now racked up a total of 143 yards. If the Bears decide to use rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky, he will likely depend on Miller as the safety blanket often.
Clay is on pace to collect nearly 70 passes this season, which would be an improvement on his 53 receptions in 2016. Tyrod Taylor has shown his dependence on Clay in the end zone, already scoring 2 TDs in the first 3 games. He has received a good portion of the team’s targets, especially for a TE.
Ertz has already racked up 245 receiving yards in three games. Carson Wentz has focused on Ertz and Jeffery, as they both have earned 28 targets. Of those 28 targets, Erts has collected 21 catches and scored 1 TD through the first three games. The Eagles have been moving the ball well so far this year. Ertz should continue to see a lot of looks in this offense.
