It’s always a good feeling when your sleeper pick pays dividends. Such was the case when Garrett Celek went for four receptions, 67 yards receiving and a touchdown, finishing TE1 for Week 10. He was among a cast of lesser-known tight ends who delivered solid games in Week 10. We also learned that Trey Edmunds is a player for the New Orleans Saints who has both running back and tight end eligibility in fantasy football. He finished TE2 with 48 yards rushing and a touchdown.

The big three will look to reclaim their spots in Week 11. Rob Gronkowski was a bit disappointing against the Denver Broncos, but he gets the Oakland Raiders this week so you can feel good about a potential bounce back game. Zach Ertz practiced Monday and looks to be a full go for the Sunday Night game against the Dallas Cowboys who just lost Sean Lee. Speaking of the Cowboys, don’t forget about Jason Witten, who may not have huge weeks, but he is consistent and should remain heavily involved against the Eagles.

Week 11 is a bye week for Jack Doyle, Ed Dickson and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. So you’ll have to do some digging to find a streaming option. A general rule of thumb is that you want the tight end going up against the Giants, Dolphins, Browns or the Broncos. So dial up Cameron Brate, Marcedes Lewis and Tyler Kroft. Vernon Davis keeps making the case that he is a better tight end than Jordan Reed. Reed could miss another game, but New Orleans defends tight ends very well. I have Davis as TE13 this week, but with 20 targets over the last two weeks he could once again be a top 5 option.
