Week 12 Half PPR Rankings
Robert Tonyan Note

He's the No. 6 tight end on the season, but here's a fun fact for you. He's the only tight end inside the top-15 who's seen fewer than 49 targets this year... he's seen 37 of them. This year has not been friendly to those who stream tight ends. Sure, Tonyan may be the No. 6 tight end on the season, but he's finished as a top-12 tight end just four times. While the Bears are one of the worst matchups in the league for offenses as a whole, tight ends have accounted for 22.2 percent of the fantasy production by skill-position players against them, which is the most in the league. Opposing tight ends have averaged 9.3 percent more fantasy points against the Bears than they do on the year, making this the 10th-best schedule adjusted matchup for tight ends. It's the only positional matchup that's above average against the Bears. It may not sound like much, but there have been eight tight ends who've finished as the TE18 or better against the Bears, which is a rock-solid floor for streamers, making Tonyan a high-end TE2 in this matchup.
