Tight end is one of the hardest positions to fill on any fantasy team. And if you're an owner that will likely be missing Rob Gronkownski this weekend, you're in a pretty tough spot right now.


Before you make any rash moves, remember it's all about value, opportunity, and a good matchup when it comes to finding that perfect injury replacement for an tight end.


Here are three deep streaming options for Week 7.

Geoff Swaim has quietly been a consistent option for the Cowboys offense, and while he won't blow you away, he has logged 7.2, 11.4, 7.0 and 3.1 FanDuel fantasy points over the past four games. He will likely need a touchdown to get to double digits, but his floor is well above zero, and that's more than viable for a streaming tight end.

Chris Herndon could be the ultimate deep sleeper, bursting onto the scene last week against the Indianapolis Colts with two receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. Now, he has a great matchup against the Vikings, who have allowed the seventh-most FanDuel fantasy points to tight ends this year. He's also owned in less than 1 percent of most leagues so he should certainly be available.

With all the injuries to Washington's offense, Vernon Davis has managed to step up in the past few games, posting totals of 8.0, 2.5 and 12.3 FanDuel fantasy points. He's averaging 14.5 yards per target, so you may get your money's worth, especially since Dallas is a middle-of-the-road defense against tight ends.
