Chris Thomas’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 11

Jared Cook

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 Evan Engram and Jimmy Graham have byes. It could be difficult to decide who is 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 11 of the 2020 NFL Season.


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

(Check out 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. 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

TE21 Irv Smith Jr., Minnesota Vikings

Irv Smith Jr. missed last week against the Chicago Bears because of a groin issues and has a good chance to return this week. But if he was not Kyle Rudolph would likely absorb all of his targets. This would push Rudolph up to TE13 between Mike Gesicki and Robert Tonyan. This would make him a viable streaming option this week against the Dallas Cowboys.

TE29 Mo Alie-Cox, Indianapolis Colts

Mo Alie-Cox hasn’t been a great tight end in fantasy over recent weeks, but still has a decent role in the Colts offense. He has been dealing with a lingering knee injury and has been limited to start the week. There is a chance that he does miss this weeks game. For the very few that rely on Alie-Cox at some capacity this is something to keep an eye on.
