Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets: Tyler Conklin

Tyler Conklin (TE – NYJ): 42% rostered

  • Next opponents: MIA, @GB, @DEN
  • True value: $6
  • Desperate need: $13
  • Budget-minded: $4

Analysis: Incredibly, Conklin is the TE4 so far in 2022. He did see a reduction from his eight-target average with Zach Wilson stepping back into the starting QB role, which is somewhat concerning. Wilson attempted 36 passes and was even less efficient than Joe Flacco. Conklin is a decent streamer, even if his perch near the top of the positional rankings is on shaky ground.
