Fantasy Football PPR Rankings Week 11: Tight end

We all know there are only a handful of elite tight ends, and generally speaking, only those few players rack up significant targets, never mind yards and touchdowns. There are a few higher-target sleepers and streamers further down in our Week 11 fantasy TE PPR rankings, but as usual, our standard and PPR rankings are relatively similar.

Both sets of rankings get a big boost from the return of Travis Kelce from a bye. The Chiefs’ star has been fantasy football’s best player at the position this season while racking up 8.9 targets per game. Only Darren Waller (9) had been outdoing him in that category heading into last week. In Week 11, Kelce will once again ascend to the top of our rankings and is one of the few must-starts at the TE position.

Unfortunately, our PPR rankings will be without two of the league’s top-four TEs in targets per game. George Kittle (foot) is on IR, and Evan Engram and the Giants are on bye, so the TE1 ranks will be a little weaker than usual. Additionally, Jordan Reed and Jimmy Graham, two other potential top-15 plays, will be on bye.

The absences of those players will open up some opportunities for other streamers. Notably, Logan Thomas (vs. Bengals) and Dalton Schultz (@ Vikings) each have solid matchups, and each rank within the top 12 in targets per game at tight end (Schultz is 10th at 6.1, Thomas is 12th at 5.8). They work as viable sleepers for those streaming at the position, and they should pan out if they continue to get a high target share.

Elsewhere, while Jared Cook (vs. Falcons) has a good matchup, it may be tough to trust him over some other PPR options because he is getting just 4.6 targets per game. The Falcons are weak against TEs, but Cook represents one of the biggest movers in our PPR TE rankings. The upside is there, but he’s more of a boom-or-bust option in PPR leagues.

Check back for updates to these TE PPR rankings throughout the week.
