Chigoziem Okonkwo (Tennessee Titans)

Chigoziem Okonkwo has been one of the better tight ends over the past month and has seen a bigger role in the Titans' offense. In three of the past four games, he has had at least six targets with 60+ receiving yards in two of those games. This past week against the Seahawks was his best game of the season with six receptions for 63 yards and his first touchdown of the year.

The Titans this week play the Houston Texans in an AFC South division matchup and the Texans have been one of the worst this season against tight ends allowing over 11 fantasy points per game.

Gerald Everett (Los Angeles Chargers)

Ever since the Chargers had to turn to Easton Stick in place of the injured Justin Herbert, tight end Gerald Everett has been a bigger part of the offense. He has now had three straight weeks with eight targets each game and at least five receptions in all three games.

Everett hasn't found the end zone yet during that stretch but with this workload it seems like only a matter of time. That time could be this week against the Denver Broncos who are allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends this season with over 13.6 points per game.
