DFS Roundtable: Tight End Tussle Week 8

The DFS team discusses the tight end storylines for Week 8

Which Tight End Storylines Are The Most Lineup-Influencing for Week 8?

  • Jonnu Smith vs. Delanie Walker: Strong matchup against Tampa Bay, Walker barely played in Week 7, splash game from Smith.
  • Mike Gesicki: Buying any momentum from back-to-back notable games for the second-year tight end on a negative game script haven in Miami? At Pittsburgh in Week 8.
  • Austin Hooper: Chalk play but coming off back-to-back touchdown games but season-low volume in Week 7 and potential for Matt Schaub under center. Strong matchup against Seattle.
  • Evan Engram: Coming off 1-6-0 effort on just five targets. Good matchup against Detroit.
  • Darren Waller: Offensive centerpiece, draws tough Houston matchup
  • Gerald Everett: Rising with three impact performances over the past month, including at least five targets in each of said games. Too much competition for targets in quality matchup against Cincinnati?

  • Evan Engram: Coming off 1-6-0 effort on just five targets. Good matchup against Detroit.
No Sterling Shepard means plenty of targets for Engram. Yes, last week didn't work out, but there's no reason to think Engram won't resume his dominating role against Detroit. And his poor showing last week should keep his ownership low.

  • Darren Waller: Offensive centerpiece, draws tough Houston matchup
He's the top-rated tight end on the board, and it's not close. He should be chalky, but is too appealing to fade.
