2020 Fantasy Football Week 9 Tight End Streaming

on

Welcome back Fantasy nerds, this time for the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 9 Tight End Streaming article! This is an interesting week for tight ends this week.

Hopefully, after the first eight 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 or your starting tight end is on a bye. The teams this week on a bye include the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams, and the Philadelphia Eagles . 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. This week is especially hard with all the teams on byes this week, so these names are deeper names than usual.

Now that you know the gist of the article, let’s find you a few tight ends who can help you win your Week 9 matchup. The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 9 Tight End streamers will highlight TE’s owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Logan Thomas, Washington Football team (2.6% owned)

Fresh out of the bye week, Logan Thomas is looking to build on the chemistry that he has started to build with Kyle Allen. Before the bye week, Thomas had touchdowns in back-to-back games for the first time this season. He hasn’t seen a ton of targets since Allen has been the starting quarterback, but he has been efficient. He has caught seven out of the eight targets that he received in his last two games, which is great to see.

The Matchup

It’s not the greatest matchup for Thomas this week. Washington is playing the New York Giants this week, who are only allowing 5.1 fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

But the good news is, Thomas produced the last time these two teams matched up, when he scored 13.2 fantasy points while catching a touchdown. You can’t ask much more than that from a streaming tight end, so that makes Thomas a solid streaming option this week.

Greg Olsen, Seattle Seahawks (13.6% owned)

This is an extremely tough week for streaming tight ends. So I don’t necessarily like the fact that I’m recommending Greg Olsen this week. But with how high powered this Seattle offense is, I want a piece of this offense week in and week out. Even if that means having to stream Olsen this week.

Unfortunately, Olsen didn’t record a catch in the Seahawks last game, but he did see two red-zone targets. Those are good to see considering who they are coming from. Those targets should eventually result in touchdown catches, and let’s hope that comes this week.

 The Matchup

The Seahawks play the Buffalo Bills this weekend, which you would like to think should turn out to be a shootout with both these offenses. The Bills have given up 10.4 fantasy points to opposing tight ends, which is 5th worst in the league. There should be plenty of targets to go around, so Olsen should have the opportunity to produce this week.

Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (28.4% owned)

The Dallas Cowboys offense has looked downright disgusting since Dak Prescott went down with an injury. Dalton Schultz is coming off a game where he caught six of eight targets for 53 yards, so the volume is there. The Cowboys continue to be in negative game scripts, as they should be in one this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Matchup

Like I said above, the Cowboys play the Steelers this week and should be playing from behind for most of the game. Schultz should see a decent amount of volume this week, so he may return value – even though the Steelers are tough against opposing tight ends. They only yield 4.9 fantasy points per game to that position.

Jordan Reed/Ross Dwelley (0.1% owned)

Unfortunately for the San Francisco 49ers, and for fantasy football managers everywhere, George Kittle is going to be out for the next eight weeks with a fracture in his foot. So that leaves the door open for one of these two tight ends to be fantasy relevant.

Jordan Reed is still on IR at this moment but could be activated for the game this weekend. However, if he is not activated, Ross Dwelley should have a solid role moving forward with this team. He caught one of four targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in Week 8.



The Matchup

The 49ers get the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football this week, as long as it isn’t postponed due to positive COVID results from both sides. The Packers have only given up 5.2 fantasy points to opposing tight ends, which is top ten in the league. If you start Dwelley this week you will be hoping for a touchdown. But with how thin the waiver wire this week, it may not get better than the 49ers tight ends.
