Expert 
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. 
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.We saw Jeff Heuerman out-target him 5-3 in Lock's first start, which is something to monitor, as Fant needs a lot of targets to be relied upon. Here's the worrisome part: Fant ran 20 routes while the remaining Broncos tight ends ran 12 routes in Week 12. Then, in Week 13, Fant ran 20 routes while the other tight ends ran 22 of them. His 71.4 percent snap share was his lowest since Week 6, though it's close to where he's been, so we're not in complete panic mode. The Texans haven't been a matchup you need to attack with streamers, either. They've allowed just 1.58 PPR points per target on the year, which is the sixth-best mark in the league. There have been six tight ends who've been able to total at least four receptions and 40 yards, so it's not a must-avoid matchup, but you should know that the tight ends who did hit those marks were Mark Andrews, Eric Ebron (twice), Austin Hooper, Travis Kelce, and Seth DeValve. The only tight end who appears out of place is DeValve, but we can't pretend his 4/41/0 will win you a week. The loss in target-share is worrisome, so combining that with the matchup, and you have yourself nothing more than a middling TE2.
