Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 10

Austin Hooper

This year more than ever it has been difficult to make decisions about fantasy football lineups because of injuries, byes, and Covid-19 concerns. This week fantasy starters like Travis Kelce and Hayden Hurst have byes. It could be difficult to decide who is the best streamer to replace one of them in your lineup. That decision could be the difference between winning and losing this week.

With so little time left during the fantasy football regular season every game that’s left is more important than the last to guarantee yourself a spot in your leagues fantasy football playoffs. Here are my tight end rankings for Week 10 of the 2020 NFL Season.

*Ratings are subject to change due to injury reports or possible move to reserve/COVID-19 list*

(Check out the section below for details on players already rumored to possibly miss this week and how their replacement options rank for the week)

Must Start- a player who is in your lineup regardless of the matchup or most circumstances. They Will likely finish near the top of the league in points that week and in most weeks.
Starting TE1- a player who makes fantasy owners comfortable starting week after week. Regardless of the matchup, this player has a solid floor.
TD Dependent Starter- a player who may not be a lock to start for a team every week, but will start more times than not because of depth at the position. Their production is based on whether they can get in the end zone or not. It can be the difference between a top 10 performance or top 25 performance
Leave on the Bench- a player who should be avoided in all lineups that week. Many times this player could even be left on waivers.

Possible Changes that can occur before Sunday

TE5 Noah Fant, Denver Broncos

A major theme of the Denver Broncos season has been injuries. Von Miller, Courtland Sutton, Drew Lock, and Philip Lindsay have missed time with injuries. The next to join the list could be star tight end, Noah Fant. Last week Fant left the game due to an ankle injury, but then returned to finish the game. However Fant’s ankle is still bothering him and could cause him to miss this week. Last week the second tight end on the depth chart in Denver Albert Okuegbunam tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Jake Butt is on injured reserve and Nick Vannett is also dealing with a foot issue. The team has brought back one of their former draft picks Troy Fumagalli who could see extended time this weekend if Fant were to miss the game. However, owners of Fant should look at other options besides Fumagalli to fill the void. Fumagalli would likely be TE34 between Ian Thomas and Cameron Brate if he started this week.
