Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
He's as consistently excellent as they come at the position, and you're not removing Kelce from your lineup. Come on guys, this is a no-brainer.Seattle has been surprisingly stingy to opposing TEs this season, despite yielding all kinds of yards to WRs. Even so, Kittle is an easy top-5 option at a desolate position.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's coming off a game where he totaled just three receptions and 31 yards. Sure, it was in the snow, but you know what he did the last time he came off a three-catch performance? He caught eight passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. This is one of those matchups where if you simply look at fantasy points allowed, you'll see the Jets rank 13th against them, which is not great, but also not bad. When you see they've faced the eighth-fewest targets despite playing all seven games, that's the giveaway. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed 2.42 PPR points per target to tight ends, which ranks as the third-most in the NFL, behind only the Jaguars and Falcons. Kelce leads the NFL in both red zone targets and targets inside the 10-yard line. Well, the Jets have allowed 5-of-11 red zone targets to tight ends go for touchdowns. Start Kelce as an elite TE1 and expect game-breaking upside.He's now totaled 40 targets in the four full games he's played, which amounts to a ridiculous 10.0 targets per game. He's been a bit up-and-down production-wise, but with all the injuries on the 49ers (Samuel, Mostert, Wilson, Coleman), we should expect a big game out of him this week. If there were a game we could guarantee 10-plus targets for a tight end, it has to be this one, right? However, there are some things I see that just stand out in my research for the week, and one of those things in this game was that teams have targeted their tight ends just 11.5 percent of the time against the Seahawks, which is easily the lowest mark in the league; no other team is under 13.5 percent. That's led to them being one of just four teams who've allowed less than 10 percent of fantasy production to tight ends. It's odd though because they've allowed 8.55 yards per target to the position when targeted, which is the seventh-highest number in the league, and usually most telling when it comes to tight ends. Kittle is going to steal a lot of those 31.3 targets per game that go to wide receivers against the Seahawks. Kittle has seen a 29.0 percent target share since returning to the lineup, and that was with Samuel in the lineup. He's the best tight end on the slate.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jets are just 19th against fantasy tight end, Kelce should be a fantasy star at home this week.The Seahawks are 3rd against fantasy tight ends, but Kittle is a matchup proof TE1.
