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 9 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit.
Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills
Since being traded to the Jaguars from the Panthers, Arnold has popped up on the radar as a PPR-yardage guy. In four games, he’s posted 18 receptions for 168 yards. Those are decent numbers for a tight end. It’s the 25 targets I hone in on and is why Arnold is a promising guy to roster for those playing in a PPR league. However, he is still not involved in the goal line offense, and with no threat to score touchdowns, Arnold’s ceiling has a cap that’s below what you would want in a normal flex spot. Now combine that with his matchup with the Bills, who slowed down Mike Gesicki
