Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time, but at Bruno Boys, we help you work through those tougher decisions. That way, you make informed decisions on your starting lineup and will be confident in locking it in. Our Tight Ends to Start and Sit look specifically at ones you can start or stream, and ones to leave alone.
The landscape of the modern day tight end is you either have one or you don’t. There’s no reason you sit one of the top six tight ends (Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, George Kittle, Mark Andrews, and Kyle Pitts), ever, unless they’re hurt or on bye.
Owners of every other tight end out there is hoping theirs get into that elite group, as a cemented starter in the lineup. Others just want their tight end to give them a performance worthy of a start. No one wants to roster more than one tight end, but bye weeks, injuries and matchups can impact who finishes as TE1 or TE2.
Here are the Week 13 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit.
T.J. Hockenson, Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings
Talk about a player who had been starving himself for the big meal! The last time Hock scored was Week 2. Weeks 6 and 8 were good for PPR formats, but outside of that, it’s been a quiet season. Especially so for the TD heavy owners who are dependent on Detroit’s finest hitting the pylon.
Unfortunately, he’ll have a tough time achieving that against the Vikings who outside of Josiah Deguara in Week 11, have kept all other opposing tight ends out of the end zone.
