Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Gesicki has six targets in each of the past three games, which is promising for a tight end you may be considering streaming. He only has 28 and 18 yards in each of his past two games, though, so we'd recommend you look elsewhere. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The targets remain intact for Gesicki who's now seen six targets in three straight games, something that's hard to find at tight end. It at least presents somewhat of a decent floor from week-to-week, though he's failed to reach 30 yards in three of his last four games. The Browns have been a matchup to aggressively attack with tight ends who get targets, though. They've allowed the 19th most fantasy points to the tight end position, which isn't great, but it's all about the volume. When targeted, tight ends are averaging 8.64 yards and 2.08 PPR points per target, which are both top-five numbers. Of the six tight ends who saw more than three targets against the Browns, five of them finished top-16, with four of them finishing top-eight. They also just lost safety Morgan Burnett for the season, which surely won't help. Gesicki is on the streaming radar as a high-end TE2 this week.
