Top Fantasy Football Streaming Tight Ends for Week 4
The fantasy tight end position appears to be really strong at the top this season, but once we get beyond the elite producers at the position, we start to see a ton of variance. Once-retired Jason Witten sits 10th at the position with 21.4 fantasy points, and Jordan Akins ranks ninth with 23.5.
With so little consistency, there aren't many players that you should consider locks as weekly starters. Instead you can find a big edge by combing the waiver wire for the TEs with the best matchups to throw into your starting lineup each week.
These three tight ends, all owned in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Football leagues, are the top streaming options for Week 4.
1. Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts (18% Owned)
The Indianapolis Colts' passing game hasn't exactly been an exciting one in fantasy football with Andrew Luck retired, but they shouldn't have much trouble getting things going against the Oakland Raiders, who have one of the worst pass defenses in football. The Colts also may be without T.Y. Hilton, who is uncertain with a quad injury for Week 4, which would leave a ton of volume to go around. Jack Doyle hasn't done much in the receiving game this year, but he does lead Colts TEs with a 69.4 percent snap rate, which is good enough for 13th in the NFL at the position. Doyle's career-high 80 receptions came in 2017 with Jacoby Brissett at QB, so the volume could be coming, especially if Hilton and his 28 percent market share are missing against Oakland.
2. Vernon Davis, Washington Redskins (20% Owned)
Vernon Davis has been a viable fantasy option with Jordan Reed out for a while now. Since joining the Washington Redskins in 2016, Davis has averaged 4.8 targets and 8.8 fantasy points per game in 18 games without Reed, compared to 3.1 targets and 6.3 fantasy points per game with Reed. He also draws a solid matchup, as the New York Giants have allowed the NFL's second-most adjusted yards per pass attempt to opponents so far in 2019.
3. Will Dissly, Seattle Seahawks (47% Owned)
The least likely to be available in your league, Will Dissly is one of the top Week 4 waiver pickups at any position. Targeting tight ends against the Arizona Cardinals has paid fantasy owners handsomely so far this year. There have been only five instances of a tight end topping 25 PPR points in a game in 2019, and three of those came against the Cards. Dissly's fantasy value has been boosted by his three touchdowns, but he has also seen his workload increase each week, culminating in seven targets in Week 3. Expect him to be heavily involved again as the Seattle Seahawks look to take advantage of one of the Cardinals' biggest weaknesses in Week 4.
