Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Gesicki has a solid matchup and has scored in two straight weeks. He has been largely inconsistent and should be nothing more than a desperate streaming option. He's a mid-tier TE2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After failing to score a touchdown in each of his first 26 career games, Gesicki has scored in each of the last two games. He's seen at least six targets in each of the last five games, which is massive at the unpredictable position, and even catches a break this week as safety Jamal Adams is looking extremely unlikely to play. He's easily the best player in their secondary and the one responsible for taking care of the tight end most of the time. If he's out, it'd be a massive upgrade. Gesicki did total 6/95/0 against them back in Week 9 with Adams, so it clearly wasn't a scheme Fitzpatrick struggled with. There have been seven tight ends who've totaled at least 41 yards against the Jets, though they've allowed just two touchdowns, which has kept the fantasy totals down. Gesicki is getting enough targets to be considered a low-end TE1 and would get a nice bump if Adams sits.What a stud. He scored on Thanksgiving once again and did it against a Bills team that has been the best in the NFL against tight ends the last two years. He's seen at least four targets in every game this year and has averaged 6.3 targets over the last seven games. He doesn't offer a ceiling, but he does offer consistency. The Bears kind of fit that mold perfectly, as they have allowed just two tight ends to top 49 yards against them since the start of the 2018 season. However, there has been nine different tight ends who've totaled at least 30 yards against them this year. The 9.70 yards per reception they've allowed is among the lowest in the league, but the 5.8 receptions and 56.6 yards per game are both above average. He should be considered a middling TE2 who doesn't offer week-winning upside, but he should be locked in for four-plus targets and 30-plus yards.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Jets have been among the toughest matchups versus tight ends over the last two years because they have Jamal Adams who just locks down opposing tight ends. He is out this week though, along with half of the Jets defense. In every game since Preston Williams was injured, Gesicki has at least 6 targets in each of the last five weeks and is second among tight ends in air yards during the time. That should translate nicely with Devante Parker likely bracketed. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jets are 5th against fantasy tight ends, but you never know which version of the Jets will show up. Gesicki is a boom / bust TE2 this week. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The second-year, second-round TE is finally showing why he was drafted so high. He has seen at least six targets in each of the past five games. This has resulted in him catching 21 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns. This ranks him as TE6 over this span. Gesicki has also caught touchdowns in back-to-back games, being a big part of the Dolphins' offensive success. In the first matchup against the Jets, Gesicki caught six passes for 95 yards, showing his upside in this week's matchup.Last week was Witten's best fantasy game of the season, but there is no reason to believe this output continues. He will continue getting a few catches per game, but they will not be fruitful for fantasy. There is no need to chase the box score with Witten.
