Game Level Similarity Projections : Tight End Week 15

Unless you happened to draft one of the few regularly performing guys, the tight end spot is not one on which you can pin all of your fantasy successes on this season. Be that as it may, it’s semi-final week in 2018, so we have the GLSP numbers for TEs as we head into this crucial week in fantasy football. These projections are here to help you make the right choice when it comes to naming your line-ups for the week ahead.

The GLSP, or Game Level Similarity Projections, offer you a glimpse into how players could produce this week based on previous matchups. Let’s dive in and see what the numbers have in store this week.

It is not at all surprising that the projections favor those who’ve delivered all season long. The players with the top seven highest average projections are all among the top 12 TEs in fantasy football this year. Away from the big guns, incredibly, C.J. Uzomah yet again finds himself staring down the barrel of a huge week. Rookie Ian Thomas doesn’t have the worst outlook according to the GLSP, although the Saints have been far from generous to TEs this year.

Anthony Firkser’s numbers, while not looking tremendous, should not take the shimmer of his potential this week. He has three receptions in each of his last four games, with at least 42 yards in three of them. With Jonnu Smith joining Delanie Walker on injured reserve, Firkser is truly all by himself as a receiving option for the Titans at TE.

That being said, it would take a truly heroic call from a fantasy owner to plug Firkser in this week of all weeks, and expect great things. But, as I said, if you’ve not relied on the TE spot, and just need someone to chip in … well, there have been more unsung heroes. Just look at what R2-D2 has achieved in his career.
