After finishing as a top-15 tight end in three of his first five games this year, Gesicki has failed to finish better than TE17 over his last five games. I do feel like he's inching up the radar a bit, though, as he's now totaled at least four targets and 40-plus yards in each of the last three games. You'd expect his targets to increase with Preston Williams out of the lineup and really no No. 2 wide receiver available to take those targets. If you just looked at his target share over the last three games, you'd see he's sitting at 15.4 percent, which isn't horrible. Knowing the Jets face an average of 36.8 pass attempts per game, we could see a six-target day for Gesicki. Against the Jets, that could be massive, as they've allowed 2.22 PPR points per target to tight ends, which is the third-highest mark in the league. It's a combination of both yardage (8.21 yards per target ranks as the 8th-most) and touchdowns (have allowed a touchdown every 9.0 targets, which is the fourth-most often). Through 10 games, there have been seven tight ends who've finished as the TE14 or better against them, including five top-eight performances. Gesicki is in the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 conversation this week.The Vikings had allowed the most yards per target to tight ends coming into the Bears game in Week 10, yet the Bears chose to target Graham twice. Rational coaching thoughts must be thrown out the window at this point in time, as we just can't rely on them to take advantage of the matchups in the game. Teams have chosen to target their tight ends just 15.3 percent of the time against the Packers, which is the second-lowest number in the league. The production has lacked because of that, as they've allowed just 12.3 percent of fantasy production go to them, which is also the second-lowest mark in the league. It's a shame, too, because when targeted, tight ends have averaged 8.49 yards per target, which ranks as the fourth-highest mark in the league. But again, we can't forget about the Vikings matchup just two weeks ago. Ugh. Due to the lack of targets, the Packers have allowed just one tight end to crack 10.5 PPR points against them this year, and that was Rob Gronkowski who saw eight targets. Tight ends have averaged 40.9 percent fewer fantasy points against the Packers than they have averaged in non-Packers games, making this the third-worst matchup based on adjusted opponent rank, though much of that comes from lack of targets. Graham is just a middling TE2 who's finished with 34 yards or less in 8-of-10 games.
