There is no fantasy football waiver wire in the NFL playoffs - it's mostly a week to week game. Each round, you will be able to enter DFS contests, and you'll need a tight end when setting your lineups.

If you aren't in the business of shelling out top dollar amounts for your tight ends in daily leagues, then you've come to the right place. Below are my lesser owned Wild Card Round DFS options for DraftKings.

Let's get to it. Good luck with your DFS lineups RotoBallers.

Wild Card Round DFS Tight Ends

With Travis Kelce as the clear cut best option at the TE position in Wild Card Weekend DFS, finding someone - anyone else to go with that succeeds will give you a leg up on the competition.

Greg Olsen and Delanie Walker are the obvious next two, but their value just isn't there. Unfortunately, the opening round options are very limited if you don't want to shell out the cash for Kelce.

 

Charles Clay (TE, BUF) - $4,000 on DraftKings

With the unstoppable duo of Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye shutting down Kelvin Benjamin and Deonte Thompson on the outside, the Bills will have no choice but to try and feature Charles Clay. Starting anyone against the Jaguars is going to be unpopular, especially players on an already weak passing offense like the Bills.

Clay, however, has 19 targets over his past two games. Regardless of the opponent, volume is king when it comes to fantasy production. Clay's touchdown upside won't be high as the Bills likely won't be scoring many points, but he should see a high enough target count to have a good shot at generating serviceable numbers.

 

Austin Hooper (TE, ATL) - $2,900 on DraftKings

Austin Hooper is more of a gamble than Charles Clay. Hooper's price is dirt cheap and he is still a starting TE for one of only eight teams playing (six when you consider that the Rams and Saints don't really have a viable TE). There aren't great options so chasing the touchdown potential of Hooper could be worth it, especially in larger contests. You're not getting more than a handful of targets for Hooper, but he's got the best shot at a touchdown outside of Kelce.
