We've reached a truly tough crossroads with the tight end position and just how bad the Cardinals defense is against them. Is McDonald worse than they are? Maybe. He's totaled 46 targets this year but you (yes, you reading this) have as many games with more than 40 yards than he does. Hodges has started two games, and in those games, McDonald has totaled just four targets combined. Ugh. The Cardinals have allowed a 76.0 percent completion-rate (highest in NFL), 9.40 yards per target (2nd-highest), and a touchdown every 8.0 targets (most often). It all amounts to 2.45 PPR points per target. It's kind of ridiculous at this point. This matchup is literally the only time you should contemplate McDonald. We can't guarantee more than a few targets with how little Hodges throws, so he's a borderline TE1/TE2 this week who you don't have to use if you really don't want to.He's been a big part of this offense over the last six weeks, totaling 28 targets, 24 receptions, 266 yards, and four touchdowns. His targets have been a bit volatile, which isn't the best thing for a streamer, though this is a matchup he's crushed before. In fact, his season-high was eight targets, and it came against the Dolphins. While the stat sheet says 6/50/0, it should read 7/53/1, as he had a touchdown that was overturned that really shouldn't have been. The Dolphins have moved Eric Rowe from cornerback to safety and it's worked out well, as he's allowed just 13-of-28 passing for 118 yards at safety. Knowing that Darnold has been hit-or-miss, the Jets have been hit-or-miss, and Griffin's targets have been hit-or-miss, you have a high-variance streamer. He should be in the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 conversation but understand you're playing with fire.

Given how bad Arizona has been against fantasy tight ends, McDonald is a great roll of the dice TE1 against the worst tight end defense in the NFL.The Dolphins are 21st against fantasy tight ends, Griffin has a good chance to find the end zone this week.
