Start ‘Em – Tight Ends

Robert Tonyan, TE – GB vs  CAR

Over the past month, Packers tight end Robert Tonyan has been producing consistently. He has caught a touchdown in each of those four games and scored at least 13 fantasy points in PPR formats.

In Week 15, he takes on the Panthers, who have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in the last three games and have also allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends. He should be able to carry his momentum over in this matchup.

Eric Ebron, TE – PIT vs CIN

As of late, Pittsburg Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has not been playing at the elite level he once was at the beginning of the year. What has been consistent though, even through Big Ben’s downturn in performance, is Eric Ebron.

Ebron has averaged nine targets and more than five receptions over the Steelers’ past three games. This season, he has 15 red-zone targets, which ranks fourth amongst tight ends.

This production looks to continue against the Cincinnati Bengals, who have allowed the third-most points to tight ends in fantasy football.

Sit ‘Em  – Tight Ends

Zach Ertz/Dallas Goedert, TE(s) – PHI vs AZ

With the demotion of Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, tight end Zach Ertz basically becomes a non-factor. Additionally, Ertz has been banged up this season, and Dallas Goedert has shown some bright spots.

With Jalen Hurts taking the reigns under center, there is now concern as to how many looks Eagles’ tight ends get, even with 12-man sets on the field. To make things worse, Philadelphia travels to Arizona to face a defense that has allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to tight ends in 2020.

Hayden Hurst, TE – ATL vs TB

Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst showed some solid performances around the mid-way part of the year. Over the past four weeks, however, Hurst has not been good. The third-year pro has not found the endzone since Week 6 and has combined for just 10 points over those four games in PPR leagues. The opportunity to improve doesn’t seem to be there either, getting just seven targets over the last two games. Find another streamer if needed.
