Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 4: Tight Ends

4 of 4

Sit ‘Em

Heath Miller (PIT) – Gone is the Heath Miller that was Big Ben’s favorite target. This season has been dismal to say the very least for Miller. Through the first three games, Miller has accumulated a whopping 9.20 points. He has also scored only one touchdown during that span.

This week he faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and we’d still sit him out of this one.

Travis Kelce (KC) – With the injuries to tight ends racking up around the league, fantasy football owners have been forced to hit the waiver wire in search for relief. Travis Kelce was the name on the top of that list for the last week and a half.

However, you may not want to buy into the hype, at least this week. This week the Chiefs take on the Patriots. The Pats defense has surrendered an average of 4.37 fantasy points per game to tight ends this season, so Kelce is no lock to put up good numbers.


Zach Ertz (PHI) – Zach Ertz match-up vs. the San Francisco this week doesn’t look very prosperous as the Niners have allowed an average of just 5.10 fantasy points to tight ends this season.

However, the 49ers have surrendered eight touchdown catches in their last four home games. That’s enough for me to start Ertz in what could be a shootout.
