TE - NYJ
Week 5 Outlook
Tyler Conklin caught 3-of-5 targets for 52 yards in New York’s 24-20 win against the Steelers on Sunday.
Conklin was the hot waiver wire pickup this week after a nine-target Week 3 and he delivered just an 8.2-point PPR day. That is ok for a tight end spot and he did outscore Baltimore’s Mark Andrews so there’s that. Still, this wasn’t what most managers expected but Conklin and Zach Wilson reportedly showed chemistry in training camp before Wilson’s injury so Conklin’s numbers should improve going forward. The Jets also held a lead most of Week 4 leading to a season-low 37 pass attempts, one of which was by Braxton Berrios to Zach Wilson.
Tyler Conklin caught all eight of his targets for 84 yards in New York’s 27-12 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.
Conklin saw a ton of volume in Week 3 as Flacco was under constant duress. Conklin has been a much-needed talent at tight end for New York this season and so far seems worth the money he commanded in the offseason. He has gone for 18/140/1 through three weeks and should be started in all formats as he should continue to be a security blanket for whoever is under center for the Jets.
Tyler Conklin caught 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards in New York’s 31-30 comeback victory over the Browns on Sunday.
Conklin’s nine targets were second on the team only to Garrett Wilson’s 14 but his 40 yards were good for only 4th. Flacco used Conklin as a security blanket at times in Week 2 and the new Jet tight end responded with a double-digit PPR performance. At a shallow fantasy position like tight end, days like these can be like gold, and managers in search of tight end help should take a look at Conklin, especially as long as Joe Flacco is at the Jets’ helm.
Tyler Conklin caught 4-of-7 targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in New York’s 24-9 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.
Conklin caught a three-yard touchdown from Joe Flacco with exactly one minute to play in Week 1. The touchdown saved an otherwise poor fantasy day for the tight end. New York signed Conklin as a free agent this summer to provide scoring and he remains a touchdown-defendant tight end (the shallowest of fantasy positions) going forward.
Tyler Conklin did not play in the Jets’ second preseason game against Atlanta on Monday night in New York’s 24-16 preseason win against the Falcons on Monday.
Conklin was one of many veterans that did not start for the Jets on Monday night. Conklin will start the year as the Jets' starting tight end after signing a free agent contract in the office season. Conklin is part of a revamped tight end room for the Jets also featuring C.J. Uzomah, the former Bengal, as well as rookie tight end out of The Ohio State University Jeremy Rucker, who caught a touchdown in the first preseason game. All three tight ends have the potential to score a touchdown on any given week and it remains to be seen until the regular season begins who will establish himself as the dominant tight end. However, the job is Conklin’s to lose as the Jets will start out playing the man they paid the big money to. Zach Wilson, or whoever is under center for the Jets this season, has a lot more talented toys at their disposal thanks to the Jets' off-season of free agent acquisitions and draft picks. Conklin plays a very shallow fantasy position as a tight end and will have to prove that he is worthy of a starting spot on fantasy teams. Fantasy managers should look to take Conklin as a backup to start the season.
