Streaming TE Options for the Fantasy Football Finals in NFL Week 16

We're heading into Week 16 of the NFL season and it's still impossible to figure out the tight end position. Unless you have the Chiefs' Travis Kelce, the Eagles' Zach Ertz or the 49ers' George Kittle, you can't count on your tight end week in and week out. There are players available in the majority of leagues that could give you the boost you need during this week's championship matchup.


Here are the top three streaming tight end options for your fantasy football finals.

3. Benjamin Watson, New Orleans Saints

Get ready for the Benjamin Watson revival tour. He was expected to do at least something in a high-powered Saints passing offense, but has not even landed in the same stratosphere as some projections with just six catches over the past six weeks. Watson does have the luxury of going against a Steelers team that has been surprisingly bad against tight ends this season. It's going to likely be a shootout between these two teams, which makes Watson a streaming option with high upside thanks to his touchdown potential.

2. Matt LaCosse, Denver Broncos

Injuries have put Matt LaCosse in a good position to thrive in recent weeks. He's been up and down since he received a larger share of the passes in Denver when Emmanuel Sanders went down for the season, but he's coming off a solid performance last week against the Browns with four catches for 43 yards. This week, he has the luxury of going against the defense that has given up the most yards and touchdowns to the tight end position this season in the Oakland Raiders. LaCosse is a boom-or-bust low-end TE1, but if he booms it could win you the title.

C.J. Uzomah has been one of the more underrated players at his position this season. He has posted at least six fantasy points in four of his last five games in PPR formats, despite the arrival of Jeff Driskel under center. Uzomah now takes on a Browns offense that gives up the fourth most fantasy points to the TE position. He also had six catches on 12 targets for 39 yards against Cleveland in Week 12, and could be in for a huge day as the Bengals look to keep up with the surprisingly impressive Browns' offense. Uzomah has the upside to help win a title as a mid-level TE1 in championship week.
