Fantasy Football Week 14 Tight End Preview: Projections, streamers, DFS plays and more

Everything you need to know about tight end in Week 14


Coming into the season there weren’t many people who liked Noah Fant more than I did, but virtually everyone agreed he was a must-start tight end. Pat Freiermuth was a different story. He emerged midseason and it seemed like everyone liked him more than I did. But like Fant, we all agreed he was a starter. Entering the Fantasy playoffs, I’m not sure I was to start either of them, and it’s for a similar reason.

The duo has combined for four games over 50 yards this season, but only Fant has done it since Week 6. They’re both averaging below 9 yards per reception and below 6.5 yards per target. Worse yet, neither has more than five catches in a game since Week 6.

This type of profile makes them very touchdown-dependent, just like two-thirds of the tight ends in the league. And you might think that because Freiermuth has already scored six touchdowns to Fant’s three, that makes him a more reliable option. I would disagree because at this small of sample size, I just don’t think touchdowns are that predictive, but also because Freiermuth’s quarterback has thrown just 16 touchdowns this season, just like Fant’s QB.

When you look at the projections below, you won’t see Freiermuth or Fant in my top 12, and that’s with Dallas Goedert and Mike Gesicki on a bye. They’re both still great Dynasty options, but their current roles are not the type I’m interested in starting. Look to the waiver wire for three options I would start over them.
