Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's been really good over the last two weeks, hauling in 13-of-15 targets for 155 yards, though he hasn't scored outside of the Cardinals game back in Week 3. That seems to be a theme with non-McCaffrey Panthers skill-position players. The Saints have not been a matchup to target with tight ends over the last two years, as they allowed the eighth-fewest points to them in 2018 and the 10th-fewest in 2019. We did see a glitch in the matrix last week, however, as Cameron Brate racked-up 10 catches for 73 yards against them. Is this a product of them missing Marshon Lattimore? Does it have a butterfly effect on everyone else? The Panthers are going to struggle to move the ball on the ground in New Orleans, so when you combine that with his 21 targets over the last three weeks, it's tough to say he doesn't belong in the low-end TE1 conversation, though he has a lower ceiling than most in that range.There hasn't been many more frustrating options at tight end with Hockenson, who appears to be set in a five-plus target role for multiple weeks, then all of a sudden sees one or two targets the following week. It makes for a horrible streaming performance from time-to-time, but some will ask if it's worth riding that wave. He's totaled more than 32 yards just three times all season and hasn't scored since back in Week 4. Welcome to the tight end streaming game. The Redskins have actually been solid against the tight end position this year, allowing just one tight end to score more than 12.5 PPR points all year, though it was Ryan Griffin last week when he tagged them for 109 yards and a touchdown. Prior to him, there wasn't a tight end who totaled more than 54 yards against them, which included Zach Ertz, Evan Engram, and George Kittle. Knowing how good the matchups are for Golladay and Jones, it's tough to see Hockenson being a massive part of the gameplan, but we cannot scratch off a tight end who's seen at least five targets in four of the last six games. He's still in the streaming conversation as a high-end TE2 but it's been a frustrating year for those who took a chance on him.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Olsen has been used more over the past few weeks, but he still has only found the end zone against the Cardinals this season, which anyone can do. Just look at OJ Howard. The Panthers will likely have to pass a lot, which helps Olsen's outlook, but his name is still the most valuable thing about him. He's a fringe TE1 option.Washington is in the bottom half of the league at defending TEs, but Hockenson's usage is too volatile to fully trust. He is a TE2 with upside this week, but may need a touchdown to hit TE1 value.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Olsen is a boom / bust TE1 option on a struggling offense in a tough matchup.Washington is 20th against fantasy tight ends, Hockenson is a TE1 on the road this week in a great matchup.
