Who to start and who to sit? It’s the one question you need to answer right in order to do well in this crazy game of fantasy football. You won’t get it right every time but at Bruno Boys we help you work through those tougher decisions to make an informed and confident starting lineup.
Our Tight Ends Starts and Sits look specifically at which ones you can start or stream, and which ones to leave alone for the week.
The landscape of the modern day tight end is you either have one or you don’t. There’s no sitting one of the top six tight ends (Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, George Kittle, Mark Andrews, and Kyle Pitts), ever.
Owners of every other tight end out there is hoping theirs get into that elite group, as a cemented starter in the lineup. Others just want their tight end to give them a performance worthy of a start. No one wants to roster more than one tight end, but bye weeks, injuries and matchups can impact who finishes as TE1 or TE2.
Here are the Week 7 Fantasy Football Tight Ends to Sit.
Mo Alie-Cox / Jack Doyle, Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers
There are enigmatic fantasy plays and there is Mo Alie-Cox. Last season, he seemed like a player on the verge of a breakout during Weeks 3-4 and for whatever reason, Frank Reich never utilized Alie-Cox in the passing offense outside of a few targets each game. Ali-Cox appeared more athletic than Jack Doyle, who honestly wasn’t used either outside of being a goal line target in the red zone. This current regime of the Colts is not a fan of a making their tight end a featured role in the passing offense.
This is despite acquiring Carson Wentz, who loves to throw to his tight end. This is despite there being injuries to T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell amongst many others. Do we think they’ll do the logical thing and target either Alie-Cox or Doyle against a defense that effectively smothered the pass-catching tight end since Week 2 of the season?
No, but Alie-Cox is emerging as a viable candidate to be that guy, at least around the end zone. He’s played the best three weeks of his career heading into this game. We just wish we had the optimism looking at the matchup.
