The tight end position is a pretty tricky one. Outside of a few elite producers at the top of the position, there just aren't that many proven assets. The position can also be extremely matchup-dependent, making streaming the position (or picking up a new tight end off the waiver wire) a pretty effective strategy.

Here are our top tight end streaming picks, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy leagues, to target in Week 9.

3. Logan Thomas, Washington Football Team (23% Rostered)

Logan Thomas has been a mainstay on this list. He's been really solid over his last two appearances, averaging 4.0 targets for 3.5 receptions and 51.0 yards with 1.0 TD per game in that time. Facing a below-average New York Giants' defense, Thomas has a shot to keep the momentum rolling here.

2. Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers (46% Rostered)

Eric Ebron is going to have his ups and downs because of how talented the Pittsburgh Steelers' skill-position group is, but he has been great recently. Over his last two showings, Ebron is turning 6.5 targets into 5.0 catches for 49.0 receiving yards per game, also scoring 1 TD in that time. Facing the league's worst defense in the Dallas Cowboys, this is a potential blowup spot for Ebron.

1. Ross Dwelley, San Francisco 49ers (0% Rostered)

Ross Dwelley will be on the TE1 radar as long as George Kittle remains on the shelf. And given the nature of Kittle's injury, and the San Francisco 49ers' 4-4 record, that could last for the remainder of the year. Filling in for Kittle last week, caught 1 of his 4 targets for a 16-yard touchdown. He should benefit from a decent matchup against a below-average Packers' defense in Week 9.
