Tight End 

The majority of fantasy owners were already streaming tight ends with the shaky nature of the position this season. There is a group of eight tight ends that fantasy owners feel safe owning as we head into the fantasy playoffs. 

The remaining fantasy players can look for these tight ends to get them to the promised land. 

Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings

Weeks 14-16: Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers, Green Bay Packers 

Touchdowns are challenging to predict, but Kyle Rudolph has proven to be a fantasy savior at the wasteland that is the tight end position. With six touchdowns in the last six games, Rudolph has given fantasy owners a player that they can believe in the upcoming weeks. 

With Adam Theilen still nursing a hamstring injury, Rudolph is the most targeted Viking in the Red Zone and is a fantasy asset to own regardless of opponent. 

Jacob Hollister, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Week 14-16: Los Angeles Rams, Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals 

Hollister has been a pleasant surprise for the Seahawks and fantasy owners this season. After the Seahawks lost Will Dissly for the season, Hollister has stepped in and become a valuable outlet for Russell Wilson. He is averaging seven targets in his last four games, and volume is king specifically when you are targeting tight ends. 

His matchups in the first two weeks in the fantasy football playoffs are mediocre at best, however, lay your eyes in championship Week 16!  The gift that keeps on giving otherwise known as the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals give up the most fantasy points to tight ends and have been a golden matchup for fantasy managers to target throughout the season; this holds especially true for championship week!

Ian Thomas, TE, Carolina Panthers

This selection may surprise some fantasy enthusiasts. Still, with veteran Greg Olsen in concussion protocol and the Panthers facing a losing season, there is no reason for Olsen to risk future injury. Additionally, the firing of head coach Ron Rivera should lead to the Panthers taking an in-depth look into their young players. 

Ian Thomas had an impressive finish to his 2018 season, but that was with Cam Newton under center. However, Kyle Allen loved throwing to Olsen, who logged the seventh-most targets at the tight end position this season. 

Thomas will benefit from tight end friendly matchups in your fantasy football playoffs. Two of the three teams (Seahawks & Colts) are in the bottom five teams in giving up fantasy points to tight ends. He will be a sneaky streaming option for fantasy owners, and you will look like a genius when Thomas helps you win your title!
