Tight End Matchups for Week 11 | Fantasy Football 2017

Travis Kelce tight end for the Chiefs wearing number 87 on the field

Tight end matchups are relatively simple this season.  If you can get a guy going against the New York Giants or the Cleveland Browns.. you play him! Last week both Eric Ebron (against CLE) and Garrett Celek (against NYG) scored TDs and scored well above their average.  As you’ll see the matchups numbers support this assertion going forward as CLE and NYG allow the best possible matchups to opposing TE’s this season.

Tight end matchups to target week 11: Realizing these numbers are not rankings is key, as Marcedes Lewis seemingly draws the top overall matchup, but he is averaging just 4.7 FPPG so far this season meaning he should end up in the 7-8 pt range.  You would NOT want to start Lewis over Travis Kelce who is averaging 10.4 FPPG this season and with a projected 86% boost that should land him around 18-19 fantasy points this week.  Kelce is the clear cut top overall tight end option this week based on matchups.

Tight end matchups to avoid week 11: Not too many names at the bottom of this list worth mentioning in season long formats.  Both Evan Engram and Vernon Davis will likely remain in most starting fantasy rosters this week despite a fairly tough matchup (Vernon obviously only if Jordan Reed remains out).  If for some reason you’re still debating Hunter Henry, his inconsistency is mind boggling, leaving him for only the deepest of formats.
