Tight End Outlook Week 10

From Week 1 through Week 7, Darren Waller (TE5) averaged 17.5 fantasy points, ranking second amongst all tight ends. From that point on, however, he’s seen his production cut by more than half, averaging just 8.2 points per game and ranking as TE16 over the past two weeks. The most worrisome aspect of Waller’s dip in production is his volume. He’s caught just two passes in back-to-back weeks. Waller takes on a Chargers defense this week that has held all opposing tight ends under double-digit fantasy points in every game since Week 3. However, an argument could be made that none of those tight ends were big parts of their team’s gameplan, with none of them being targeted more than four times. Waller, on the other hand, has seen seven-plus targets come his way in all but two games this season.

Jacob Hollister (TE27) is Seattle’s answer to the Will Dissly injury, and one that presented great returns in Week 9. Hollister caught the game-winning touchdown for the Seahawks in overtime on his way to the fourth-highest scoring fantasy output by a tight end for the week. However, fantasy owners should not jump on the Hollister hype-train quite yet. The Seattle pass-catcher will face off with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, a defense that has allowed a league-low 4.1 fantasy points to the tight end position. Those numbers are even more daunting if you view them from San Fran’s Week 4 bye week and on. Over that time span, tight ends have averaged an abysmal 2.04 fantasy points against the ‘9ers.
