Eric Ebron, Indianapolis Colts, 68.50
Ebron has been the most surprising fantasy scoring leader through six weeks. With the Colts having Jack Doyle as their starting tight end, nobody expected Ebron to put up the fantasy numbers like he has. Andrew Luck wasted no time peppering Ebron with targets each and every game, giving the former first-round pick 326 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Heading into Week 7 there’s no reason to think his consistency will falter.
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs, 64.80
There’s no coincidence that the Chiefs boast multiple scoring leaders through six games. Kelce has been a consistent fantasy player under head coach Andy Reid, and now benefits from the electric play of quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Going forward, Kelce and the Chiefs will look to learn from their Week 6 loss to the New England Patriots. Kelce has 468 receiving yards and three touchdowns on the season and will look to build upon his success in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles, 60.0
Ertz remains a focal point on the Eagles offense with Nick Foles or Carson Wentz at the helm. Through six games, Ertz has 480 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Still maintaining a consistent time share in the offense Ertz will remain a highly-effective target going forward. In Week 7, Ertz will play against the Carolina Panthers and their 16th-ranked defense against the pass.
Jared Cook, Oakland Raiders, 52.0
Cook is another huge surprise in the top five of tight end scoring leaders, playing on an underwhelming offense. He’s been one of the bright spots on this offense amassing 400 yards and two touchdowns through six games. Cook and the Raiders will use their Week 7 bye to try and get all the kinks worked out after coming off another big loss to the Seattle Seahawks in London.
George Kittle, San Francisco 49ers, 50.90
Once again we are talking about a tight end not many saw being in the top five through the first six weeks of the season. After losing his starting quarterback for the season many wondered if Kittle would maintain his consistent production.Kittle went into Monday Night Football a little banged up, and gained 30 yards receiving on four receptions against the Green Bay Packers.
