We are over the halfway mark of the NFL season, and just about a month away from the fantasy football. The tight end position has been different this season as compared to previous years. Travis Kelce has not been as dominant this year as he usually is, while guys like Mark Andrews have lived up to their expectations, and surprises like Jake Ferguson have stepped up this season.
Heading into Week 10, any move that fantasy football owners make mean more than anything going into the fantasy playoffs. The tight end position, depending on who you have, could be a make or break this week for fantasy owners.
Here are the five tight ends to avoid starting in fantasy football this upcoming week.
5.) Evan Engram vs. San Francisco
The Jacksonville Jaguars have been on a five-game win streak since Week 4 and will welcome the San Francisco 49ers to Duval County for a Week 10 showdown. Tight end Evan Engram has been a reliable option in the Jaguars’ offense, but not a big impactful player. He has yet to find the endzone this year and he just had his best game of the season two weeks ago with 10 catches for 88 yards. One of Engram’s upside this season is that he has had no less than 5 targets a game and he catches over 50% of his passes thrown to him.
The 49ers overall have been faced with various injuries, but their defense is still no joke. Engram will have to face linebackers like Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw, who can cover tight ends in the middle of the field. Engram isn’t a bad fantasy option this week, but if you are able to find a different option, it might be best to go that way.
