Fantasy Football Week 5 Tight End (TE) Start Em Sit Em
It’s that time again, folks! Week 5 of Fantasy Football is upon us, and you know what that means, it’s time to make those crucial start/sit decisions, especially when it comes to your tight end (TE) position. We’ve got you covered with expert analysis from Matt Donnelly (Rotoballer.com) to help you make the right choices.
So, before you set your lineup in stone, let’s dive into the matchups and see which TEs you should start and which ones you should sit.
Tyler Higbee – Los Angeles Rams
Tyler Higbee is coming off an impressive performance in Week 4, where he saw 11 targets against the Colts, hauling in five of them for 64 yards and 11 fantasy points. This week, he faces the Philadelphia Eagles, a team that has been generous to opposing TEs, allowing nearly 16 fantasy points per game to the position. With Higbee in a favorable matchup, expect him to deliver.
Dalton Kincaid – Jacksonville Jaguars
Dalton Kincaid might not be a household name yet, but this could be the week he makes a name for himself. The Jaguars have struggled mightily against TEs this season, giving up 261 yards and two touchdowns. Kincaid has shown promise, and in this favorable matchup, he could have a breakout game.
Logan Thomas – Washington Commanders
Logan Thomas is a reliable option at TE, and this week he faces the Chicago Bears, who have allowed 11.43 fantasy points per game to TEs. Thomas has been consistently producing and should continue to do so in this matchup. Look for him to rack up some solid fantasy points.
Tyler Conklin – Minnesota Vikings
After witnessing Cole Kmet‘s stellar performance against the Broncos, it’s hard not to get excited about Tyler Conklin‘s prospects. Denver has given up 227 passing yards and three touchdowns to TEs in just four games. Conklin has shown a connection with Zach Wilson, and he’s a viable start in this favorable matchup.
Kyle Pitts – Atlanta Falcons
Kyle Pitts, the highly-touted rookie, has had a slow start to the season. Catchable balls have been an issue, and with Desmond Ritter at the helm in Atlanta, it’s hard to trust Pitts. Until we see more consistency in his usage and production, it’s best to keep him on your bench.
Evan Ingram – Jacksonville Jaguars
Evan Ingram may have a decent target share, but he’s up against the Buffalo Bills, a defense that has allowed just 6.3 fantasy points per game to TEs. With Matt Milano patrolling the field for the Bills, this could be a tough matchup for Ingram.
Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears
Cole Kmet had a surprising explosion in Week 4, but it’s essential to remember that this was against the Broncos. Now, he faces the Washington Commanders, a team that has been stingy against TEs, allowing just 5.33 fantasy points per game. Don’t chase last week’s points; proceed with caution.
Keep an eye on Luke Musgrave‘s status for the Raiders game; he left last week’s game with a concussion. Additionally, watch for updates on Noah Fant and Juwan Johnson, who both exited their Week 4 games due to injury.
