Tyler Conklin (New York Jets)

It is tough at this point to trust any New York Jets players, especially in a championship week, but Tyler Conklin has been pretty consistent as of late. In the past four games, Conklin has had at least six targets each week and has four receptions in each of the past three games.

The Jets are playing the Browns on Thursday night in the first game of Week 17 and while the Browns defense is good at a lot of things, defending tight ends is not one of them. Last week against the Texans, Dalton Schultz led the Texans in receptions and receiving yards with eight receptions and 61 receiving yards.

Before that game, the Browns gave up one receiving touchdown to Cole Kmet and two receiving touchdowns to Evan Engram back in Week 14. This would be an option for anyone in deeper leagues where there may not be many options on the waiver wire.
