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.So, Howard is alive after all? I talked about this last week when I said he's going to go off at some point while on someone's bench or on the waiver wire. While five catches for 61 yards doesn't exactly constitute as "going off," it's a step in the right direction. Now going to play against the Colts defense that's allowed eight different tight ends turn in a performance with four or more receptions. No tight end has topped 73 yards, but they've constantly allowed a lot of receptions underneath. This all goes back to their zone-heavy scheme allowing receptions but containing the big play. That's not great for someone like Howard who's not used as a possession-style tight end. He's a risk-reward TE2 at this point who's disappointed but knowing the Bucs will have some trouble running the ball consistently, Howard has some appeal.
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.Howard put together one of his most productive games of the season last week, in a game where the top two WRs were held in check. We can't assume they will be limited two weeks in a row, and we really cannot begin to predict that there will be any kind of consistency for Howard at this point in the season. So yes, he is a chance to repeat last week's performance. He certainly has the talent, but we he's only a volatile TE2 option this week.
