2020 Fantasy Football Week 13 Tight End Streaming

on

Welcome back Fantasy nerds, I can’t believe that we are here already, the last week of the fantasy regular season. It’s that time again for the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 13 Tight End Streaming article.

Hopefully, the first twelve weeks of this article have helped you win your matchup and you are in position to make a playoff push. For those of you who don’t know what streaming a position means, it means that you don’t have a starting-caliber tight end to start week in and week out, so you play a different one every week based on matchup.

There are only two teams on bye this week, the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If your tight ends are banged up, you may be looking at the waiver wire to find a solid option. If you pick the right streaming tight end, that could be the difference between you making the playoffs and the consolation bracket.

Now that you know the gist of the article, let’s find you a few tight ends who can help you win your Week 13 matchup.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 13 Tight End streamers will highlight TE’s owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings (Owned 12.9%)

Kyle Rudolph took full advantage of his two teammates, Adam Thielen and Irv Smith Jr, being sidelined last week. Rudolph had his best game of the season, seeing a season high eight targets. He caught seven of those targets for 68 yards and finished with just over 10 fantasy points.

Those numbers last week were all season high marks for Rudolph. If Thielen and Smith stay sidelined this week I fully expect Rudolph to have another solid game. He seems to be some sort of a security blanket for Kirk Cousins, and someone he trusts.

The Matchup

The matchup this week for the Vikings is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who just get beat up through the air. They have allowed the 11th most receiving yards to opposing tight ends this season. They have also allowed nine touchdowns to opposing tight ends, which is the most in the league. Just last week, they gave a touchdown up to Austin Hooper. Rudolph is the perfect tight end streamer this week.

Trey Burton, Indianapolis Colts (0.9% owned)

Trey Burton is coming off the second straight week in which he has out produced fellow tight ends, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox. Burton caught three of six targets for 42 yards, ii a sick touchdown catch that he caught in the back of the end zone over safety Kevin Byard.

Burton most definitely has a role in this offense. We’ve seen the Colts utilize him in many different ways this year, whether it’s through the air (he’s caught three touchdowns) or on the ground (two rushing touchdowns on the season).

The Matchup

The matchup is what makes Burton such a solid streaming option this week. The Colts face off against division rival Houston Texans who have been beat up against opposing tight ends. They have given up the 4th most yards to opposing tight ends this year. So there should be plenty of room for Burton to feast this week against this bad Texans defense.

Jordan Reed, San Francisco 49ers (30.9% owned)

Jordan Reed had a quiet game last Sunday against the LA Rams, only catching two of six targets for only 18 yards. But a lot of that has to do with the fact that his quarterback Nick Mullens was less than sharp last weekend. There were a few times when Reed was streaking open, but Mullens just missed him.

Starting Reed does come with some risk since he still is splitting snaps with fellow tight end Ross Dwelley. Reed played on just 44% of the snaps, while Dwelley played 61% of the snaps. However, Reed saw six targets compared to Dwelley’s two.

The Matchup

The matchup for Jordan Reed is the best out of the other tight ends in this article. The 49ers match up with the Buffalo Bills, who have given up the second most yards to opposing tight ends this season. They have also given up the 4th most touchdowns to opposing tight ends as well. Reed is a risky option this week, but don’t be afraid to pull the trigger on him in this matchup.

Bargain Bin Option

Jacob Hollister, Seattle Seahawks (0.1% owned)

Jacob Hollister isn’t a sexy option at the tight end position, but he is tied to one of the best quarterbacks in football with Russell Wilson. Hollister only played 57% of the snaps on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, while Will Dissly played in 71% of the snaps. However, Hollister saw five targets compared to Dissly not seeing a target. So obviously Hollister is the better pass-catching option in this offense.



The Matchup

The Seahawks play the Giants this weekend, who have surprisingly been a tough defense this season. They are in the middle of the pack in allowing yards to opposing tight ends this season. Hollister isn’t a great option this week, but if you’re in a pinch, it could be worse.
