Tight Ends

Jake Ferguson - Cowboys vs. Rams - TE13 - Projected Points 6.8

Ferguson has had two awful weeks if you look at just the Fantasy points. The underlying stats however are trending in the right direction. He is now third in receptions and yards for the Cowboys just barely behind Michale Gallup.

Playing at home after a bye week he faces a Rams defense that surrenders the 5th most fantasy point and the 4th most yardage to tight ends. Ferguson has the most targets for tight ends in the red zone and this could be the week he scores his second touchdown.

Michael Mayer - Raiders vs. Lions - TE13 - Projected Points 6.1

Mayer has not had the best rookie year. Yet. This week he has a great matchup to kickstart the second part of the season. The Lions give up the third most yards to tight ends and the most fantasy points.
