Jordan Reed ($5800) Redskins @ Saints – I discussed above how the Saints have been terrible against quarterbacks and against the pass all season. Reed quietly is one of the most productive tight ends in the game this year and he continues to produce when he can stay on the field. The Saints have been abysmal against everything through the air and I really think the Redskins will be able to put up huge numbers on cheap salaries. Reed has scored three touchdowns the last two games and should continue that streak again this week.
Tyler Eifert ($6200) Bengals vs. Texans – Just because a player will be highly owned it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t target him. Eifert is coming off a massive three touchdown night and immediately jumps to the front of everyone’s mind when looking for their tight end. He now has scored 9 touchdowns in 8 games this year and continues to find seams in the red zone. The Houston defense is middle of the pack in points allowed to tight ends but that doesn’t mean they are a good defense. They have continually been shredded through the air and Eifert has a great chance to keep his touchdown scoring ways going.
