Mike Gesicki (TE, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 19% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It took quite some time, but it looks like Mike Gesicki has finally arrived.

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Although Dawson Knox fell a little short of a great performance in Thanksgiving, he was able to improve on his Week 12 outing and finish the day with six more yards on one more catch and four targets (his highest mark since Week...

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While Dawson Knox had one of the worst games of his season so far in Week 12, we can’t forget about what he did in the prior two weeks to this one and the state of the tight end position. Sure, Knox finished... Read More

Mike Gesicki (TE, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki had a rough game in Week 11 against the Bills. He was targeted six times in the game, which is good to see, but he managed to gain just 18 yards on the day, despite catching... Read More

Ryan Griffin (TE, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets tight end Ryan Griffin exploded for a season-high 109 receiving yards in Week 11. He led the Jets in receiving in the game and scored his fourth touchdown of the year. Griffin caught all five of his targets in... Read More

Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is happening in Denver. Just two weeks ago (with a bye last weekend), Noah Fant caught three passes for 115 yards and a touchdown on four targets. This last Sunday he finished the day with a massive 11 targets of which he... Read More

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dawson Knox took advantage of the poor Miami Dolphins Defense to haul in his second touchdown of the season this past Sunday. The Buffalo Bills tight end was targeted three times and caught only two of those passes, but those were more than... Read More

2 weeks ago

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dallas Goedert must be one of the most underappreciated players in all of (fantasy) football, and surely one of the most under-the-radar assets out there. With just a 17% ownership rate, he outperformed one of the best tight ends in the league,... Read More

3 weeks ago

Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It looks like fantasy owners have not caught up yet with Noah Fant’s exploits in Week 8, as his ownership rate is still at 12% is a little baffling. Sure, Fant has experienced the rookie-aids all season long and has not put on... Read More

3 weeks ago

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Dawson Knox lost fantasy owners’ favor during the past few weeks due to his underwhelming performances from weeks 5 to 9 but he came back this past weekend putting on a 9.5-point game that bolstered his value back a bit. The third-round rookie... Read More

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 25% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I was the first to expect a heavier workload for both Jack Doyle and/or Eric Ebron this week after T.Y. Hilton was ruled out with an injury, but that wasn’t the case. Doyle was targeted four times and Ebron did so on two... Read More

Chris Herndon IV (TE, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 30% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The frustration is real, but you need to keep the faith and believe in Chris Herndon IV. Another week, another DNP for the sophomore, what can we do. This was the time when it really really looked like Herndon was going to see... Read More

1 month ago

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If we were discussing a potential trade target here instead of a waiver wire pickup, Dallas Goedert would clearly qualify as a go-to buy-low candidate. From Week 6 to Week 8, Goedert had out-performed Zach Ertz each and every time they shared the... Read More

1 month ago

Chris Herndon (TE, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It’s getting a little bit frustrating with Chris Herndon IV’s weekly injury news, but we need to stay patient. Everything pointed toward his debut earlier this month, but a hamstring injury kept him out for the last couple of weeks and although he... Read More

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: You are not going to call Dallas Goedert Philadelphia’s leading tight end any time soon, but what if all we’re seeing is actually for real? For the second week in a row, Zach Ertz was outperformed by Goedert. With the Eagles running all over... Read More

Darren Fells (TE, HOU) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As a long-time Houston Texans fan, I've been suspicious of Darren Fells because the Bill O'Brien era has definitely not been kind to tight ends. But after another two touchdown performance, it's time to admit that Fells is worth a roster spot... Read More

1 month ago

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Colts tight-end-by-committee approach isn’t pretty for fantasy owners with shares of either Jack Doyle or Eric Ebron, but the former is getting more and more of the cake from Ebron weekly. Just on pure usage, Doyle is playing 72 percent of the... Read More

1 month ago

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After putting up his best game of the year to date, Dallas Goedert is someone that is worth looking at from the waiver wire in deeper leagues. Zach Ertz continues to be a top option week in and week out, but really... Read More

1 month ago

Chris Herndon IV (TE, NYJ) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon IV (hamstring) is still yet to make his season debut for the team, but anyone in deep leagues struggling to find tight end production would be wise to add him now before it's too late.... Read More

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Dawson Knox came into 2019 as a largely unknown player at the tight end position. He is a rookie out of Ole Miss, and often rookie tight ends do not have much success for the first couple of years in their career.... Read More

1 month ago


Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 NFL season, there were two rookie tight ends that should’ve been on your radar. T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant. Both tight ends played together at Iowa and are extremely talented and athletic freaks. Tight ends don’t typically burst... Read More

Foster Moreau (TE, OAK) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Why should anyone add a no. 2 tight end in his team to any fantasy roster, right? Even more, why should anyone do it knowing that the first option at the position in Oakland is no other than Darren Waller (perhaps the... Read More

1 month ago

Darren Fells (TE, HOU) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Darren Fells made it to this week's waiver wire pickups list of candidates just by a hair. That is normal, considering Fells's production has been widely consistent all season long and the scarcity of the tight end position. There are just not... Read More

Benjamin Watson (TE, NE) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: After being released by the Patriots, Benjamin Watson was recently signed after Matt LaCosse suffered a sprained MCL against the Giants. Watson made his debut against the Jets on Monday Night and saw five targets. He caught three of them for just... Read More

Darren Fells (TE, HOU) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: For the first time in years, it's time to stop ignoring Houston Texans tight ends. Ever since the team let Owen Daniels go, they've struggled to fill the position, but in 2019 it appears they've found an unlikely contributor who can provide... Read More

Chris Herndon (TE, NYJ) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of leagues ANALYSIS: After jumping onto the fantasy football season in 2018, Chris Herndon showed that he is a weapon and had a nice relationship last year with Sam Darnold. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. In his rookie campaign,... Read More

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, one of the popular candidates for regression was Eric Ebron of the Indianapolis Colts. After exploding onto the scene in 2018 following being traded from Detroit to Indianapolis, Ebron blew up last year for 13 touchdowns. This year,... Read More

Tyler Higbee (TE, LAR) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Tyler Higbee is the most-established tight end in Los Angeles. This is his fourth season with the team and he has played every game to date with the Rams. Although his usage has never been mindblowing (he had a career-high 45 targets back... Read More

2 months ago

Gerald Everett (TE, LAR) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The tight end position has been a hot mess so far this year. Judging only by the first quarter of the season, there were five tight ends to score at least 50 fantasy points in that span in 2018, while we have... Read More

Dante Pettis (WR, SF) - Week 6 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of leagues ANALYSIS: Heading into the 2019 season, one of the more popular breakout candidates was the San Francisco 49ers Dante Pettis. After a strong showing towards the end of the 2018 season, we've seen nothing but disappointment from Pettis this year. He is currently the... Read More

Chris Herndon IV (TE, NYJ) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Stash in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The team's fourth-round pick in 2018, Chris Herndon IV must sit out one more game before he can return from his four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Remember the Jets just had their bye week, so they've only played three... Read More

Ricky Seals-Jones (TE, CLE) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: I've been very into the idea of tight end Ricky Seals-Jones for a few years now, but he never could put things together with the Arizona Cardinals. I eventually cut bait in all of my dynasty leagues, and of course now is when... Read More

Benjamin Watson (TE, NE) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of leagues ANALYSIS: So, Benjamin Watson. After retiring this past offseason, Watson decided to unretire and join the Patriots. He was then promptly hit with a four-game PED suspension. That suspension is over. Tom Brady has a tight end now. This could be good. Watson... Read More

Noah Fant (TE, DEN) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: We all know the old story about rookie tight ends and how they struggle to adapt to the NFL. Noah Fant's no exception to that rule, as through four games he hasn't surpassed 37 receiving yards in a single game. But he's... Read More

Gerald Everett (TE, LAR) - Week 5 Waiver Wire

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Finding a tight end to rely on is becoming increasingly problematic in deep leagues. The dearth of talent at the position forces owners to keep returning to tantalizing but underperforming options, like Gerald Everett, who has never quite matched the hopes many had... Read More

Dawson Knox (TE, BUF) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: We keep saying over and over again that tight end is a wasteland. A few guys will pop for a week or two, but you really only have six guys that you feel confident starting every week: Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Zach Ertz,... Read More

Jack Doyle (TE, IND) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 20% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is a little mindboggling how recency bias can affect our choices. You just have to look at Eric Ebron's and Jack Doyle's 2018 season. Ebron finished the year with a completely unsustainable--albeit historical, one must acknowledge--stat line of 66 receptions, 750... Read More

Chris Herndon (TE, NYJ) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: Whether you need a tight end on your fantasy team or not, Chris Herndon IV is a waiver wire target that you can pick up now and benefit from in just a few weeks. After starting the season with a suspension,... Read More

Jordan Akins (TE, HOU) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of leagues ANALYSIS: When the Houston Texans tight ends scored three TDs in Sunday’s game against the Chargers, it was certainly a departure from the norm at that position. Normally, the Texans TEs are utilized as blockers, but this time they surprised the Chargers... Read More

Will Dissly (TE, SEA) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 44% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Once again, Week 3 showed what the tight end landscape looks like.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox played a big role in the team's home opener win over the Bengals this past week.

James O'Shaughnessy (TE, JAX) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It is hard to find No. 1-depth chart position players available on such a rate like James O'Shaughnessy's (less than 1% ownership!). There were some concerns about who'd be targeted in Jacksonville's offense regarding the tight end position to start the season. O'Shaughnessy... Read More

Jason Witten (TE, DAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm sure that a lot of people viewed Jason Witten's return to the Cowboys less as an indication that he was still a productive football player and more as an indictment on his failed broadcasting career, but in Week 2 we got...

Vernon Davis (TE, WAS) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: If you're reading this profile, chances are you passed on every highly-priced tight end on draft day, opting for a cheap option in a late round to just stream the position all season long or at least until finding someone valuable to pick...

Darren Waller (TE, OAK) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

The Oakland Raiders enter 2019 hoping to compete for the AFC West Division crown. They are a team that finished 23rd in total offense in 2018 with 5,739 yards. The passing attack accounted for 3,751 of these yards, which was good for 18th in the league. The offense has gone through some major changes in... Read More

Greg Olsen (TE, CAR) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~140 Olsen is an NFL veteran, and lately he's been a fragile one. In both 2017 and 2018, he only played in seven and nine games respectively. I have always valued him quite high (injuries or not), and he ranked 9th in DVOA when on the field... Read More

Mark Andrews (TE, BAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~140 Overall Current ADP: ~155 Not only is Andrews a tight end from a team that will feature a scrambling demon at the quarterback position,  a nice new running back in Mark Ingram, and that as a unit was the most run-heavy team during the second half of the last season. He's... Read More

T.J. Hockenson (TE, DET) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~145 Overall Current ADP: ~160 There is a chance you find Hockenson available for free at the end of your league's draft. He's currently at the verge of dropping to a consensus Round-15 ADP spot. The risk is obvious, and the ADP shows. Even as a rookie tight end, and if... Read More

Dallas Goedert (TE, PHI) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~180 Overall Current ADP: ~195 You are already well acquainted with the benefits and the potential for peril that is customary when attempting to locate a dependable tight end position. That can partially explain why Dallas Goedert’s prospects for a more expansive role within Philadelphia’s passing attack has been among the... Read More
