Strong Matchups

49ers If George Kittle is healthy in this prime matchup against the Cardinals I want to be heavily invested in him. It is hard to find a better tight end in the game right now and this is also the best matchup possible.
Saints
Jared Cook is intriguing especially as there is not really a WR2 type of player on the Saints so his targets increased to 10 against the Falcons last week.
Lions
I just want to be looking at Golladay/Jones on the Lions right now, so Hockenson won’t be an option for me.
Bengals
Outside of my slim exposure to Joe Mixon I really don’t want much to do with the Bengals offense and predicting if one of their tight ends has a breakout game is not the route I want to go.

Weak Matchups

Cardinals – Do the Cardinals throw to their tight ends? No thanks.
Dolphins – Bad team and bad matchup so this is an easy avoid for me this week in Mike Gesicki.
RavensMark Andrews is worth a play every week as he is averaging 7.3 targets a game and has five touchdowns on the season. You are looking for your tight end to find the end zone and even in a tough matchup Andrews has a decent shot at that.
Eagles – The Patriots like to take out the opposing teams best player on offense and this week that could be Zach Ertz. I suspect that the Eagles will try to counter with plenty of two tight end sets and Dallas Goedert might benefit from the tight coverage on Ertz.
