The Cleveland Browns started winning more when Brian Hoyer came in to play quarterback, but with him on the injured reserve, they are back to Brandon Weeden. According to Cleveland.com on Oct. 16, the Browns need to remember that tight end Jordan Cameron is one of their top receiving weapons if they want to win with Weeden at quarterback.
Here are the fantasy football start em or sit em options for week seven tight ends.
Jordan Cameron – Some fantasy football owners might be worried about the fact that Cameron is not playing as strong as he was earlier in the season, but that is because of the emergence of Josh Gordon. That shouldn’t matter because he should still be the starting tight end on almost any team that owns him.
Antonio Gates – The Jacksonville defense has not been as bad as their offense this year, but they are horrible at stopping tight ends. They rank third from the bottom in defense against fantasy football tight ends, so this should be a big game for Gates.
Martellus Bennett – Bennett ranks sixth in fantasy football points for tight ends so far this year, yet no one ever really talks about him. The Redskins are not the best against tight ends, giving up the seventh most fantasy points to the position.
Jared Cook – After the first week, Cook was the most sought after free agent tight end in fantasy football. Now, many teams have already dropped him. If you are one of the teams who has held on to him, don’t start him against Carolina this week.
Joseph Fauria – After his three touchdown performance last week, expect a lot of fantasy football owners to start Fauria this week. Expect them to be burned. Calvin Johnson will be back this week and Fauria had five total yards in the four games before his explosive outing while Johnson was in the lineup.
Charles Clay – Clay has been a nice surprise this year for many fantasy football owners. However, the Buffalo Bulls has given up the second fewest fantasy football points to tight ends this season and Clay is not a safe bet.
