2020 Fantasy Football Week 3 Tight End Streaming

Welcome back Fantasy nerds, this time for the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 3 Tight End Streaming article.

Hopefully, after the first couple of weeks of this article, it has helped you win your matchup. 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 3 matchup.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 3 Tight End streamers will highlight TEs owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (0.3% owned)

No matter who the tight end is in this offense, you can tell after the first few weeks that they will be involved in this offense. This offseason Blake Jarwin was catching a lot of hype. But unfortunately, he went down with an injury during his Week 1 game and is done for the season.

All Schultz did in his first game as the starter was lead the Dallas offense in targets. He caught nine of his ten targets for 88 yards and one touchdown. Unfortunately, he did fumble early in the game, but that didn’t scare away Dak Prescott from keeping Schultz very involved.

The Matchup

Unfortunately for Schultz, this week's matchup is not a great one. The Cowboys play against the Seattle Seahawks, which means Schultz will see some of Jamal Adams, who has been known to shutting down opposing tight ends. He Gave Hayden Hurst a tough week one, only allowing him to have three catches on five targets for 38 yards.

This game should turn into a shootout, which should mean good things for Schultz. Even though it is a tough matchup against Seahawks, I would still be okay rolling Schultz out in my lineups this week if there aren’t any better options on your waiver wire.

Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team (4.8 owned)

This is the second week in a row Logan Thomas appears on this list. Unfortunately for me, and for anyone who listened to me, Thomas disappointed. It wasn’t an issue of volume as he still saw nine targets, but he only caught four of them for 26 yards.

Through two games you can tell Thomas is the number two option in this passing game. He has seen 17 targets through two games and played 82% of the team's total snaps. He is also the top red-zone target for the Washington Football team through two games as well, as he has seen a team-high three targets in the red zone as well.

The Matchup

The matchup for Thomas this week is another great one like last week. This week they draw the Cleveland Browns, who have just been torched by tight ends this season. Mark Andrews had a field day against them in Week 1 catching two touchdowns. Then the Browns gave up 11 receptions and a touchdown against the Bengals tight ends last week.

If you have Thomas on your roster, you should feel comfortable firing him up in your lineups this weekend. I’m confident he will have a great day.

Mo Alie-Cox, Indianapolis Colts (0.1% owned)

This is the second time that a Colts tight end has made this streaming article. With Jack Doyle likely being out another week with an ankle injury, Mo Alie-Cox could follow up a solid Week 2 with another solid week. Cox caught five of his six targets for 111 yards.

Over the past five seasons with Rivers at the helm, the Chargers targeted the tight end position 36.6% of the time, which led the NFL. It is early in the season but you can tell Rivers is most comfortable targeting the slot or the tight end position.

The Matchup

The matchup for the Colts this week is the New York Jets, who are arguably the worst team in the NFL. The Jets have not been competitive through the first two games this season.

So if you start Alie-Cox this week, you have to hope that he gets his targets early before this game gets out of hand and they don’t have to throw anymore. Rivers should target him early and often, so I’m ok with starting Alie-Cox if you don’t have any better option.

Bargain Bin Option

Drew Sample, Cincinnati Bengals (0.1% owned)

Nobody has targeted the tight end more this season than Joe Burrow, as C.J. Uzomah and Drew Sample have been targeted 21 times. Unfortunately, Uzomah was injured during Thursday Night's game and is out for the season with an Achilles injury.

Sample did most of his damage against the Browns once Uzomah went down. He caught seven of his nine targets for 45 yards. Sample should still keep seeing a number of targets season, with it being clear that Burrow loves throwing to that position on the field.

The Matchup

The Matchup is a good one for Sample as well. The Bengals play the Philadelphia Eagles this week. The Eagles have a solid secondary, so it seems like through the first two games their opponents have been targeting the tight end position.

The Eagles have actually given up 33.10 fantasy points against tight ends this season, which is the most in the NFL this season. Sample should see plenty of volume this week against the Eagles, which makes him a sneaky good tight end play this weekend in what could be a shootout.
