We all know that streaming tight ends are a complete hit-or-miss endeavor, but if you break down the numbers you can find someone that'll take a potential zero and turn it into a double-digit game with the help of a touchdown. We have broken down the numbers and looked at the matchups -- it's up to you now to follow the lead. Here are the best three streaming options at tight end this week.

O'Shaughnessy (available in 100 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) had a season-high in receptions (5), targets (6), and receiving yards (46) in Week 10 against the Indianapolis Colts. This Sunday he'll get an even better matchup against the Steelers, whose blitz-heavy defensive scheme leaves the middle of the field more often than not. This has led to them allowing the second-most targets (8.9) and third-most receptions (6.3) per game to opposing tight ends this season.
2. Ricky Seals-Jones - Arizona Cardinals vs. Oakland Raiders

RSJ (available in 83 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues) made last week's list of streaming tight ends and capitalized on the great matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs by grabbing five catches on nine targets for 51 receiving yards. The Raiders are getting lit from every direction, so RSJ should be able to connect with his rookie quarterback a few more times this Sunday.

A lot of people were high on Smith coming into the season with Delanie Walker out of the way. So what if it took him nine weeks to unleash his full potential? I guess it's no coincidence that Smith's best two games have come after the Titans' bye week, but now is the time to pounce on this guy while you have the opportunity. The Colts are allowing the fifth-most receptions (5.9) per game to opposing tight ends and Smith has touchdowns in back-to-back games.
