6. Maxx Williams, Arizona Cardinals
Maxx Williams posted five receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown against the Rams in Week 4. That marks the second game this season that Williams has produced more than 15 fantasy points.
Williams had zero receptions on one target in Week 1, but since then, the Cardinals have expanded his role in the passing game. Since Week 2, Williams is fifth among tight ends in fantasy points.
Williams is currently in his seventh NFL season; it is also his third season with the Cardinals. He has never been a fantasy factor in the past, but that seems to be changing.
Through the first four weeks, Williams has played in 71 percent of Arizona’s offensive snaps. Previously, he had never played in 50 percent of a team’s offensive snaps in a single season.
He is a borderline TE1 this Sunday.
5. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles
Zach Ertz had six receptions for 60 yards against the Chiefs last Sunday. Ertz has now been targeted 15 times over the last two games.
In fact, he has been targeted more than Dallas Goedert this season. The Eagles’ Week 1 matchup against the Falcons was the last game Goedert eclipsed Ertz in targets.
Right now, Ertz is the best fantasy tight end in Philadelphia.
