2. Ricky Seals-Jones, Washington Football Team
Ricky Seals-Jones only mustered one reception for eight yards last Sunday against the Cowboys. With Logan Thomas on the IR, Seals-Jones is clearly the number one tight end for Washington.
Earlier this season, he thrived in that role. He had a solid three-game stretch from Week 5 to Week 7, where he recorded 36.0 total fantasy points.
He has a great opportunity to bounce back this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles defense has struggled to contain tight ends this season. In fact, they have allowed the most receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season.
1. David Njoku, Cleveland Browns
David Njoku missed last week’s game on the reserve/COVID-19 list. However, it appears that he will return for Saturday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Njoku declared “it’s good to be back” on Instagram:
The Browns will likely be missing several starters on Saturday, including tight end Austin Hooper and wide receiver Jarvis Landry. Njoku has a chance to be the number one tight end for the Browns.
The sky is the limit for Njoku’s fantasy value this Saturday.
