TE Notes: It was not a banner Week 5 for Travis Kelce, who feuded with coaches and posted his lowest yardage total of the season (70). Nevertheless, he remains on pace for 1,405 yards, which would break George Kittle’s still-warm tight end yardage record. Houston has been stout up the seam but faced an unimpressive slate of opposing tight ends. Austin Hooper went 6/56 last Sunday. … Does that count as a breakout for George Kittle? He matched a season-high for catches (six) while posting his most yardage (70) and finding the end zone for the first time. Kittle’s main problem is the 49ers’ lack of overall passing volume. Kyle Shanahan is dialing up 29 weekly attempts compared to 33 a season ago. Kittle should still be expected to eventually transcend his circumstances. … Zach Ertz has cleared 50 yards in 5-of-5 games. … Even after Tyler Eifert’s Week 5 no-show, the Cardinals enter Week 6 allowing by far the most tight end fantasy points. Austin Hooper is averaging a weekly 7/73. 

Mark Andrews is merely the TE14 by average PPR points over the past three weeks. Working in his Week 6 favor is improved health — his foot finally came off the injury report last Friday — and a tissue-soft matchup with the Bengals. … Averaging 6/63 since his 1/12 Week 1, Will Dissly has four scores in his past four games. The Browns are coughing up the fifth most tight end fantasy points. Pete Carroll isn’t about to quit Dissly. … Greg Olsen has five yards over the past two weeks. Fantasy owners need to shake it off and fire Olsen up vs. a Bucs defense he gutted for 6/110 in Week 2. It is worth noting that Devin White, who was injured that week, has returned. … Gerald Everett’s 136 yards against the Seahawks were the most by any tight end in a game this season. He has 12 catches over the past two weeks. Week 6 opponent San Francisco has yet to really be tested but is posting dominant numbers against every position.  

Delanie Walker is 2/14 over his past two games. He does remain the PPR TE11 by average points. It’s that kind of year at tight end. … We’ve somehow reached a point where Jimmy Graham has returned to every-week TE1 status. Bleak. … With Teddy Bridgewater actually throwing, Jared Cook finally did something in Week 5. Cook has drawn at least six targets three of his past four games. … Vance McDonald somewhat surprisingly returned in Week 5. Now he will be catching passes from UDFA Devlin Hodges. Best of luck. … O.J. Howard has been catching passes in Tampa … at Tropicana Field. Nothing in Howard’s recent usage suggests a breakout is coming. … Noah Fant hasn’t been happening, but the Titans are getting stung for the fourth most TE fantasy points. … Hayden Hurst has at least two catches in 4-of-5 games. Congratulations to us?
