Game Level Similarity Projections : Tight End Week 11

Once more we wend our way through the cesspool that is the tight end position, using Game Level Similarity Projections. 2018 has been disappointing for fans of tight ends, to say the least. Nonetheless, most teams need to start at least one. So with this mind, here are the projected numbers for Week 11. The numbers are, as always, courtesy of Dave Caban.

By this stage of the season, it is quite difficult to find viable streaming options at the TE spot. Those players who have performed well will have found their way onto the majority of rosters, which can make the start-sit process seem less like a choice and more like an ultimatum. However, there are several players this week whom the numbers seem to like, as well as a few that could well outperform their projections. Let us see what we have.

The 2018 breakout campaign for Ricky Seals-Jones hasn’t really happened. The GLSP numbers for the week ahead don’t tend to suggest that the time for the breakout is now. However, the numbers don’t really factor in the short-term impact of the Cardinals’ coaching change. Seals-Jones did have five receptions for 51 yards last week against the Chiefs. The Raiders are in absolute freefall, and should be attacked at any opportunity. Seals-Jones high projection of 11 is not beyond his reach this week.

Andrew Luck loves to throw to his TEs, as he has evinced throughout his career and especially in the last two weeks. Last week, Eric Ebron was the big winner. But we should never discount the special link between Luck and Jack Doyle. Doyle is a top flight option across his projections this week, and has nine receptions for 106 yards and a score in his two games since he returned from injury. He’s still Luck’s huckleberry.

A popular name as a streamer all season long has been C.J. Uzomah. It seemed an ideal situation for the most part, given the absences of Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft. But despite being on the field for a large number of the Bengals snaps, he has made zero to little noise for much of the current campaign. His season high of 7.3 PPR points came back in Week 3. His current form makes his already pitiful GLSP numbers a goal is unlikely to attain.
