There are many running to the waiver wire to snag Heuerman after his 11-target, 10-catch game against the Texans, though I'd be a bit more hesitant. He's topped 23 yards just twice all season despite seeing four or more targets in six games. We've talked about him here because of the increased volume over the last two months and it seemed to help him with Demaryius Thomas out of the lineup, but if you think he'll continue to out-target Sanders and Sutton, you're wrong. The Chargers have allowed a couple big games to tight ends, though every one of them totaled eight or more targets, something that Heuerman has seen just once (in Week 9) this year. On a per-target basis, the Chargers have been one of the toughest matchups for tight ends, as they've allowed just a 57.5 percent catch-rate (2nd-lowest) and 5.84 yards per target (3rd-lowest). Tight ends have also seen 16 targets in the red zone against them but netted just four touchdowns. It's hard to find tight ends who are continually getting five-plus targets per game (he has in three of the last four games), so he's on the streaming high-end TE2 radar, but he's far from a sure thing in this game.

Jeff Heuerman has monster day in Denver loss

Jeff Heuerman had 10 receptions for 83 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday. He was targeted 11 times.

Fantasy Impact

Heuerman led the Broncos in targets, yards, and receptions Sunday against Houston. His usage has been increasing and he is firmly on the map as a fantasy option. Consider Heuerman a low-end TE1/strong steamer going forward.
