2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 Tight End Streaming

on

Welcome back Fantasy nerds, this time for the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 Tight End Streaming article. This is a tough week for the streaming tight ends. Not that many matchups that I personally like.

But Hopefully, after the first three 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.

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 4 matchup.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 Tight End streamers will highlight TEs owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

2020 Fantasy Football Week 4 Tight End Streaming

Mo Alie-Cox, Indianapolis Colts (1.4% owned)

This is the second week in a row the Mo Alie-Cox has made this article. Hopefully, you took my advice last week and picked him up against a weak Jets team. Alie-Cox caught three of his five targets for 52 yards and a touchdown.

The 6′ 5″ tight end seems to be becoming one of his quarterback Philip Rivers’s favorite targets. I was impressed with Alie-Cox and his ability to produce, even while splitting time with Jack Doyle. Alie-Cox has seen nine targets over his last two games while catching eight of them, so when he’s targeted, he’s efficient with those targets.

The Matchup

The matchup isn’t a great one against the Chicago Bears this week. Teams have targeted the tight end 20 times in the first three games, and the Bears have allowed 15 catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns. They are also in the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed against tight ends at 16th.

If Philip Rivers is going to have success against this Bears defense in the passing game, he is going to have to get the ball out quickly. The Bears have a great pass rush, so Rivers will look to dink and dunk down the field to his running backs and his tight ends. So I am comfortable rolling with the hot hand and starting Mo Alie-Cox this Sunday

Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers (23.3% owned)

Editor’s note: At the time of the publishing of this article, the Steelers-Titans game has been scheduled to be postponed to either 10/5 or 10/6. If it is pushed out of Week 4, obviously do not stream Ebron. 

Eric Ebron was on this list in Week 1 and was a complete bust as he only scored 2.8 fantasy points. The positive since then is that he went from only seeing two targets in Week 1, to seeing five targets in Week 2, and then he saw seven targets in Week 3.

Those seven targets he saw in Week 3 were second-most on his team. He caught five of those targets for 52 yards and a touchdown. We had heard a ton of training camp buzz, that Ebron and Ben Roethlisberger had a very good connection brewing in camp. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to see it on the field until Diontae Johnson went down with a concussion. Once that happened Big Ben looked his way more often than not.

The Matchup

The Steelers are on the road this week against a good Tennessee Titans team. The Titans defense has struggled some the past two weeks, as they have given up over 30 points in back to back weeks. They have also given up the seventh-most fantasy points to tight ends this year, so that should bode well for Ebron in this matchup.

If Diontae Johnson is out of the lineup on Sunday against the Titans, I am most definitely streaming Ebron this week in this solid matchup.

Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (14.4% owned)

Here is another familiar face to this article, Dalton Schultz. I can’t seem to stay away from him. But ever since he took over for an injured Blake Jarwin, he has just been seeing a ton of targets in the passing game. He has seen 16 targets over his past two games.

He has a target share of 13% this season, which is only 1% lower than CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup, who both have a 14% target share. One of the most important aspects of a player’s fantasy performance is volume, and Schultz definitely gets that.

The Matchup

The matchup this week is also a great one for Schultz and the Cowboys, as the Cleveland Browns come to town. The Browns have given up the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends this season. They have also seen the third-most targets against tight ends as well, so teams know that they struggle covering that position. I expect Schultz to be a top 10 tight end this week.

Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers ( o.4% owned)

Robert Tonyan is not a household name yet, but it seems the undrafted tight end out of Indiana State is starting to get the confidence of his quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He has seen eight targets over his last two games and is seeing the field on two-thirds of the Packers offensive snaps. Tonyan also caught his second touchdown in as many weeks.

The Matchup

The matchup doesn’t get much better than this one. The Packers play the Atlanta Falcons. A team that is fresh off a game in which they gave up two touchdowns to former Packer Jimmy Graham. The Falcons have given up the second-most fantasy points to tight ends this year as well.


This game has all the makings of a shootout, between quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. If you are in a desperate need of a tight end this week, Tonyan is your guy.
