Jake Butt (TE - DEN)

Player Note on Jake Butt (TE - DEN)
With Noah Fant sidelined, Butt is the next man up on Denver's depth chart. The man has had a long, winding path to starting reps for him, but remember, Butt was earning Gronk comparisons when he entered the league. He's someone to monitor this week, and although I wouldn't pick him up yet, the Broncos' shortage of receiving options could give him a chance to prove himself this season.
Tyler Kroft (TE - BUF)

Player Note on Tyler Kroft (TE - BUF)
With Dawson Knox out again, Kroft finds himself in an intriguing position. The Bils will play the Chiefs in what should be a high-scoring game (Vegas is projecting 57 points), and that means lots of touchdowns and yards to go around. The last time Knox sat out, Kroft caught four passes for two touchdowns, so I'm expecting a decent fantasy showing from him here. He's a viable streaming option and a decent play in full-slate DFS contests.
Jack Doyle (TE - IND)

Player Note on Jack Doyle (TE - IND)
Doyle is droppable. Target-wise, both Mo Alie-Cox (14) and Trey Burton (11) have seen more looks than him (9). Doyle has one catch for 12 yards over the last two weeks, and even with Alie-Cox sidelined, you can't consider starting him in any fantasy lineup.
Drew Sample (TE - CIN)

Player Note on Drew Sample (TE - CIN)
Sample has not lived up to the hype. After logging 9 targets and 7 receptions when replacing C.J. Uzomah in Week 2, Sample has since totaled 8 targets and 6 receptions in three games. Yikes. If you haven't sent him back to waivers yet, do so immediately.
Trey Burton (TE - IND)
6d
Player Note on Trey Burton (TE - IND)
Burton isn't a bad streamer in PPR formats this week. Mo Alie-Cox is out, which gives Burton even less competition than he'd usually face. Burton is averaging 5.5 targets, 3.5 receptions, and 24.5 yards per game thus far, which is solid-but-unspectacular production, but it'd be enough for a decent floor showing in PPR.
Austin Hooper (TE - CLE)
6d
Player Note on Austin Hooper (TE - CLE)
Hooper has now finished with at least five receptions in back-to-back games. Over the past two weeks, he's averaged 8.5 targets per game. That said, I'm not sold on him as a viable TE1 again -- yet. If he can perform well against the Steelers' eight-best TE defense, then I will have to start ranking him as a TE1 again. But I don't think he will -- Pittsburgh has allowed just 3.25 receptions per game to the position, so he's a shaky TE2 for me in Week 6.
Darren Fells (TE - HOU)
6d
Player Note on Darren Fells (TE - HOU)
With Jordan Akins out again, Fells will lead the way for the Texans at tight end. Fells caught two passes for 57 yards and a score without Akins last week, and that's all you can really expect from a streamer. He'll need to score a touchdown to return value, but since the HOU/TEN game should be fairly high-scoring, he's got a chance to do just that. Fells is a great streaming target this week, and he's not a bad value play in DFS.
Mike Gesicki (TE - MIA)
6d
Player Note on Mike Gesicki (TE - MIA)
Gesicki is tied for second on this team in targets (28), and he trails just DeVante Parker. The big slot weapon faces the Jets' mid-pack defense against TEs (they're the 14th-worst against the position), which doesn't scream value, but he's a reliable starter in a barren tight end market.
Jonnu Smith (TE - TEN)
6d
Player Note on Jonnu Smith (TE - TEN)
Smith is the TE3 in half-PPR scoring despite having played one fewer game than almost everyone else. He's catching 4.5 passes per game (he caught 4 twice and 5 twice, so his production is relatively stable), and he's scored 5 touchdowns thus far. His underwhelming yardage numbers (55.3 per game) mean that he'll need to find the end zone to post high-end TE1 points, but he should be Tannehill's favored red-zone weapon until Corey Davis gets back. You can confidently start him as a TE1.
Mark Andrews (TE - BAL)
6d
Player Note on Mark Andrews (TE - BAL)
Andrews is the biggest bust risk of the TE1s. Much of his value comes down to touchdowns -- he already has five on the season despite having only caught 18 total passes. His 3.6 catches per game mean that you'll need him to hit paydirt to pay off, but fortunately, the Eagles have allowed the third-most scores to tight ends thus far. You should always feel confident about using Andrews as your TE1, but this week has the look of another "boom" performance.
