A Likely Candidate: Week 14 Tight End Streamers
Image Credit: Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire. Pictured: Isaiah Likely.

Week 13 of the NFL season might have offered fantasy football fans a glimpse into the future. At the tight end position, at least. Sam LaPorta, a 2023 rookie, led all TEs with 29.0 PPR points. As Shawn Siegele points out, LaPorta is on his way to the greatest fantasy season by a first-year TE ever. Second-year player Trey McBride was not far behind with 22.9. Jake Ferguson and Chig Okonkwo were also among last week’s leading point scorers. The future for this much-maligned spot in fantasy sports looks somewhat.

But it is the near future we are focusing on within these lines — next week, Week 14, namely. We are reaching a critical point of the fantasy season, with playoff byes and seeding to play for. You may find yourself in need of a helping hand at TE this week. If so, you’ve come to the right place. Here, I can offer three names of players who you can plug into your TE spot in Week 14 to help give you a boost. They are all widely available too. Shall we begin?

Lead Writer, soft spot for the tight end position. Will never stop loving Duke Johnson.

Bijan Robinson’s Rookie Season Looked a Bit Like Trent Richardson’s, But There Is No Need to Panic Yet

Bijan Robinson came into the NFL heralded as the best running back prospect since Saquon Barkley. His landing with the Atlanta Falcons, and Arthur Smith’s skills in utilizing the ground game in his offense, made mouths water at the prospect of what his first season in the league could be like. It’s fair to say that the early returns were . . . underwhelming. But…...

Sometimes, we are successful not because of the decisions we made, but because of the decisions we did not make. And sometimes, we are successful because of the decisions someone else did not make. It is early days, of course, but right now the Houston Texans are the big winners because the Carolina Panthers chose to draft Bryce Young. This left them free to select,…...

Bryce Young’s Rookie Season Looks a Lot Like Zach Wilson’s, But Perhaps He Still Has Trevor Lawrence’s Upside In His Range of Outcomes

Being the first overall pick in the NFL Draft is often daunting. Especially if you are a quarterback. There is usually a strong reason behind how that team came to select you with that pick. Namely, they suck. But in the case of Bryce Young, the Carolina Panthers made a blockbuster trade to go up and get their guy. This, they hoped. would help stop…...
