Here are some tight ends that you should target for your main slate fantasy football lineup this Sunday!

The top tight ends on Draftkings are priced as follows, and you may notice a disparity in pricing:

  1. Travis Kelce (vs  NO) – $8,000
  2. Mark Andrews (vs JAX) – $5,500
  3. George Kittle (vs DAL) – $5,300 (IR)
  4. T.J. Hockenson (vs TEN) – $5,200

. TE - $8,000. Kansas City Chiefs. Travis Kelce. 1. player. 124

Travis Kelce is a man amongst boys when it comes to tight ends in the world of fantasy football. Thus, being the reason he is $2.5k more than anyone else at the position. Basically, his floor is everyone else’s ceiling. I understand if you want to play him, and I don’t blame you.

If you do, though, be prepared to rely on value at multiple other positions in your lineup. Not to mention, Kelce has basically been a receiver in terms of yardage. Mahomes finds Kelce, and they connect just as much as receivers around the league.

Los Angeles Rams. Tyler Higbee. 2. player. 51. . TE - $3,800

Tyler Higbee is a good contrarian play at tight end in Week 15. The Los Angles Rams take on the New York Jets, the same Jets that have given up a top 10 performance to tight ends in four straight weeks.

Additionally, wide receiver Robert Woods is recovering from injury, and Higbee is playing over 85% of the offensive snaps once again. Certainly worth some exposure where other owners may not take a second look.

TE - $3,000. Chicago Bears. Cole Kmet. 3. player. 57.

“He catches that football and is able to blow through three people, give a forearm shiver and get a first down. And then he came off the field saying, ‘I’m not going down!’” – Head Coach, Mike Nagy

In the last two games, Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet has totaled nine catches, 78 yards, and a touchdown. In his first 11 contests, he had just eight receptions for 94 yards and a score. But increased playing time in recent weeks has led to increased production.

Kmet’s numbers haven’t transitioned into what one might call “success” in terms of daily fantasy sports; however, Bears Head Coach Mike Nagy likes what he sees from the rookie, and opportunities should continue to come his way. With pricing at $3k on Draftkings, it doesn’t take a ton of production to hit value for that salary.

A quick look at the D/ST position — and I mean quick!

I am heavily relying on the Washington Football Team as my D/ST for Week 15. They’ve been hot lately, and I love the matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.
