TE Notes: With at least six catches in 4-of-5 games, George Kittle’s floor has been there. He finally reached the ceiling a bit in Week 6, going 8/103 vs. the Rams. The tanked Redskins are in full-on retreat. … Travis Kelce has gone a modest 8/128 over his past two games, though he still has 17 more yards than any other tight end. The Broncos have done a solid job limiting seam production, but only Kittle offers anywhere close to Kelce’s weekly ceiling. … With Sterling Shepard (concussion) still uncertain, a returning Evan Engram (knee) will be funneled targets against a Cardinals D that has allowed 102 more yards (599) to tight ends than any other defense. Regardless of quarterback, Engram has yet to be held below seven looks in a game. He will clear that easily this week. … Second to Kelce in tight end yardage is Austin Hooper, who has 70 more (480) than No. 3 Mark Andrews. Hooper has caught at least six balls 5-of-6 games. 

Andrews snapped his three-game slump against the Bengals, going 6/99. He has a golden opportunity to stay hot vs. a Seahawks Defense surrendering the fourth most tight end fantasy points. … Zach Ertz has slipped through the cracks a bit, though he has cleared 50 yards in all six of his appearances. Ertz caught 19 combined passes in his two 2018 meetings with the Cowboys. … Hunter Henry seemed destined to be on a snap count vs. the Steelers. Instead, he was on the field for 41-of-62 plays as he had one of the best games by a tight end all season (8/100/2). @TEN doesn’t feel like a great spot for Philip Rivers, but Mike Vrabel’s defense has permitted the seventh most tight end fantasy points. That’s been largely due to touchdowns, not yards. … Gerald Everett never got a chance to chase his Week 5 points against the 49ers, as Jared Goff went all the way off the rails. He deserves a mulligan vs. the Falcons’ barely-there “defense.”   

Delanie Walker had chemistry with Marcus Mariota. He has a better quarterback with Ryan Tannehill. … With the Packers’ receiver corps struggling to get healthy, I’m struggling to get Jimmy Graham off the TE1/2 borderline. … This feels too ambitious for Dawson Knox, but he cleared 58 yards in 2-of-3 games before the Bills’ bye and is facing one of the worst defenses in NFL history. … You think I enjoy ranking Jason Witten here? It feels like a necessity with Amari Cooper (quad) sidelined. … T.J. Hockenson’s four catches against the Packers were his most since Week 1, though they resulted in just 21 yards. The Vikings are a tough matchup. … Tyler Higbee gets some of Gerald Everett’s benefit of the doubt vs. the dismaying Falcons. … Darren Fells’ five red zone targets are 13th amongst tight ends. Jordan Akins has three looks inside the 20. … Will Dissly had been heavily involved in the Seahawks’ passing game. Even half his looks would make Luke Willson a viable TE2.
