We've reached the fantasy championships in most leagues, and now every start/sit decision can be the difference between a title or a second-place finish. If you're looking for help at tight end this week, there are a few players who can make a real impact in Week 17.
Fantasy Football Playoffs Advice
Here are the top-three streaming tight ends, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, to target in Week 17.
Streaming TEs Week 17
3. Foster Moreau, Las Vegas Raiders (22% Rostered)
Foster Moreau has seen some pretty encouraging volume lately. Darren Waller's backup has recorded 19 targets over his last three games, turning that into 14 receptions for 145 yards. He has notched at least 65 yards in two of his last three outings as well. With Las Vegas likely to be playing from behind, as 3-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook, Moreau should see plenty of volume this week. As long as Waller doesn't make a surprise return on Sunday, Moreau should be a rock-solid streamer.
2. Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings (42% Rostered)
Another injury-dependent option, Tyler Conklin should be a nice start if Adam Thielen can't go. With Thielen out for most of last week, Conklin was Minnesota's clear-cut No. 3 option. He caught 4-of-5 targets for 44 yards. The Vikings should also be throwing the ball a ton this week, as FanDuel Sportsbook lists Minnesota as 6.5-point dogs. The cherry on top is that the Packers surrender top-12 PPR production to opposing tight ends. Conklin is a great play if Thielen can't go on Sunday.
1. Cole Kmet, Chicago Bears (33% Rostered)
Cole Kmet has been a target hog recently, seeing a 37 targets over his last five games. That works out to 7.4 per game, which would be the fourth-best season-long average among all NFL tight ends. He has also recorded at least 40 yards in four of his last five games. If he sees that kind of volume against the New York Giants, Kmet could be in line for a great outing.
