Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is a must star this week

Fantasy Football has taken over around the NFL, and we wanted to make sure we had something for our readers as well. We have teamed up with a couple Fantasy Football Experts to help our fans get the best of both worlds.  Check out this amazing piece on Top RB’s to play week 8.

Written by: Reed Spangenberg

Tight End:

C.J. Fiedorowicz vs. DET.

-Fiedorowicz has turned into one of Brock Osweiler’s most trusted targets over the past few weeks and he faces a match-up that bodes well for him in week 8. Over the past two weeks the Iowa product has had at least 5 catches a game and he faces a defense that has allowed 7 touchdowns to TEs so far this season.

Zach Ertz vs. DAL.

-The Eagles have not utilized Ertz since he has returned from a rib injury, but this week he faces the Cowboys defense that has struggled covering TEs thus far. Ertz can be a dynamic weapon for Philly when he is involved in the passing game and the Eagles will likely take advantage of this by getting him touches early.

Travis Kelce vs. IND.

-Kelce caught just two of three targets against New Orleans last week, but he has a favorable match-up this week against Indianapolis. Kelce is a focal point in the KC offense and they figure to get him more involved this week against a poor defense.

Jimmy Graham vs. NO.

-Although Graham had a down week in week 7, he will face the team that traded him away and he will be looking for revenge. Aside from his extra motivation this week, the Saints have been below average against speedy Tight Ends and they rank as the worst in the league in points allowed per game (30.5).

Vernon Davis vs. CIN.

Davis has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners who needed an emergency fill-in at TE. He has also done a decent job filling in for Jordan Reed, who has been out the past few weeks with a concussion. This is probably the last good opportunity to start Davis, with Reed likely returning to his starting role after the bye week, but Davis faces the Bengals defense that has had a difficult time against opposing TEs. He is also coming off a strong week in which he caught all six of his targets for 79 yards.
