Maybe you drafted Rob Gronkowski or you just lost O.J. Howard for the year - almost everyone needs a reliable tight-end these days. 


In one of the most confusing fantasy years for tight-ends in recent memory, here are three potential streamers that might not make you feel crazy in Week 12.

3. Chris Herndon - New York Jets vs New England Patriots

Chris Herndon has 14 catches over his last six games and three touchdowns in his last five, which, as alluded to above, is gold for any tight-end in 2018.


The Jets will take on the Patriots this week who have allowed the second most touchdowns to opposing tight-ends in the NFL this season.

2. Ben Watson - New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons

Ben Watson has been quiet after several serviceable weeks this season. This one is more match-up driven than anything else.


The Saints will take on the Atlanta Falcons and there should be no shortage of points in this NFC South rivalry. Watson has an extremely low floor but it'll be redzone possessions that fantasy owners should be watching. 

1. Cameron Brate - San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The aforementioned O.J. Howard will not return this season and new-starter-again, Jameis Winston, has loved Cameron Brate in the past. 


Additionally, the Bucs also draw a favorable match-up with the San Francisco 49ers. Brate will be an upgrade over many other touchdown-dependent tight-ends this week.
