on

Welcome back Fantasy nerds, this time for the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 2 Tight End Streaming article. 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 have to look to the waiver wire and try to find the best matchup possible for that week.

This article will consist of players who I believe to have a good matchup, or that I like the player’s talent.

If you pick the right streaming tight end, that could be the difference in you winning your week or losing your week.

Now that you know the gist of the article, let’s find you a few tight ends who can help you win your Week 2 matchup.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 2 Tight End streamers will highlight TEs owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles (44.7% owned)

Dallas Goedert may be the TE2 on his roster, but he provides TE1 fantasy football upside. This is most likely the last time he will be eligible for this list because I expect him to be over 50% rostered after this week.

In Week 1 he caught 8 of 9 targets for 101 yards and 1 touchdown. With the lack of receiving depth on the roster, he should expect to see consistent targets all season long. You may be able to start him as your weekly starter every week; especially if the Eagles can’t come to a new contract agreement with disgruntled tight end Zach Ertz and look to trade him. If that were to happen Goedert would be a top 5 tight end.

The Matchup

The Eagles play the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. It is a decent matchup as the Rams gave up the 8th most yards to tight ends last season and the 12th most fantasy points. The Cowboys targeted the tight end only five times last week but had minimal success. That being said, the majority of those targets were to the backup Dalton Schultz after the starter Blake Jarwin got injured.

Jimmy Graham, Chicago Bears (Owned 7.8%)

The Bears caught a ton of grief for giving Jimmy Graham $9 million guaranteed. But after what we saw in Week 1, it‘s clear that the Bears have a plan put in place for the veteran as a red-zone target.

He caught three of seven targets for 25 yards and a touchdown. He should have caught another touchdown on a fade route but he mistimed his jump and the ball went off his fingertips for an incompletion. I expect him to keep seeing most of the red zone targets for the Bears, because they lack another red-zone threat besides disgruntled wide receiver Allen Robinson.

The Matchup

This is the second week in a row that I am targeting the New York Giants in this article. Unfortunately, Eric Ebron couldn’t come through for me, with him only catching one of his two targets for 18 yards. They allowed eight touchdowns to tight ends last season, which ranked 4th in the NFL. They also ranked 10th in fantasy points given up to tight ends. I expect Graham to find the end zone once again this week.

O.J. Howard, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11.9% Owned)

All the hype surrounding the tight ends this offseason in Tampa Bay was pretty much about the return of  Rob Gronkowski, which left O.J. Howard flying under the radar. Not only did Howard out target Gronkowski, but he also outproduced him. Howard caught four of his six targets for 36 yards with a touchdown.

To me, Gronkowski looks like a shell of his former self. He looked like he wasn’t running very well. So if Howard can keep the confidence of his quarterback Tom Brady, I think we will finally see the breakout grom Howard that we all wanted to see.

The Matchup

The matchup is s great one for the Buccaneers offense to get on track for the rest of the season. The Carolina Panthers are obviously rebuilding their defense after they used all their draft picks on the defense. The defense gave up 34 points to a less than stellar Raiders offense last week. So I would be comfortable starting O.J. Howard this week.

Bargain Bin Option

Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team (0.2% owned)

This off-season we all wondered who else was going to see targets in this offense besides Terry McLaurin. At least for Week 1 the answer to that question was Logan Thomas. He actually led the team in targets with eight, while catching four of them for 37 yards and a touchdown. It’s clear that Dwayne Haskins has some trust in Thomas.


The Matchup

The matchup against the Arizona Cardinals couldn’t be any better. The Cardinals last season were by far the worst defense against tight ends in the NFL. They gave up 208 fantasy points, which was 61 points more than the closest team to them. George Kittle was looking like he was going to go off before getting injured in Week 1. If you’re desperate, stick Thomas in your lineup, and feel okay about it.
