DFS Roundtable: High-Variance Tight Ends

The DFS team discusses the high-variance tight ends for Week 6 viability

Tight End is an absolute high-variance position beyond the top few names, at most. Injuries and usage are all over the place around NFL depth charts.

Name one or two tight ends who are cheap and you trust for Week 6?

Justin Howe: I'm always wary of Vance McDonald, much more so than the DFS community as a whole. He was an auto-fade for me last week, with so many DFSers fixated on his upside but not factoring in that he's still a strict part-timer. I'm much more inclined to jump at David Njoku, who's been flashing down the seams and has the eye of Baker Mayfield. Over the past two weeks, he's turned 18 targets into 11 catches for 121 yards, and the DFS sites haven't priced him up accordingly.

Jeff Heuerman is mildly intriguing, as well. He's not a volume prospect, as Case Keenum is locked firmly onto his top three wideouts. But Heuerman is dominating snaps in Denver (77% over the past 2 weeks) with Jake Butt out, and it's no real surprise. He was the first-teamer throughout training camp, playing both as an in-line blocker and a receiver. Denver coaches gushed during the preseason about his ability to both zip down the field and catch the ball. At such a low price point (and low DFS exposure), Heuerman could spearhead big GPP wins just by catching four balls and a touchdown.
