The tight end position is always hard to manage in fantasy football given its drop-off in production after the top names in the game. Scouring the waiver wire is important as finding that diamond in the rough is one way fantasy managers can gain a leg up on their opponent.

With that being said, here are the top-three streaming tight ends, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, to target in Week 5.

Streaming TE Fantasy Football Week 5

1. Dalton Schultz (35% Rostered)

Dalton Schultz did his best to prove that his Week 3 performance was no fluke. The Cowboys' tight end hauled in 6 of his 8 targets in Week 4 for 58 yards and 1 touchdown. Schultz has now seen at least 7 targets in each of the last two games and leads all Dallas receivers with 3 red zone looks during that span. Schultz's ability to get open down near the end zone is a major benefit given he is playing on an offense averaging 31.5 points per game (No. 4 in NFL). Scoop him up now because it won't be long before he is rostered everywhere.

2. Dawson Knox (48% Rostered)

Another player making the most out of his opportunity is Dawson Knox. The third-year pro saw a season-high 8 targets in Week 4 and scored 2 touchdowns. Knox has seen his snap rate hover around 80% for the last three weeks and now draws a great matchup in Week 5. The Kansas City Chiefs are giving up the fourth-most PPR fantasy points to opposing TEs this season. Grabbing a piece of the Bills' powerful offense (404.0 yards per game) is never a bad idea. Look for the Knox to put together another big game in primetime.

3. Maxx Williams (2% Rostered)

One player to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy football leagues is Arizona Cardinal Maxx Williams. The 27-year-old has hauled in all of his 15 targets over the past three weeks for 179 yards and 1 touchdown. His 93.8% catch on the season suggests that quarterback Kyler Murray is getting him the football in good spots. The San Francisco 49ers have been solid at covering opposing TEs, but Arizona averages 304.0 passing yards per game (No. 3 in NFL). Murray is going to pass the ball a ton and that only gives Williams even more upside moving forward.
