We are into the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, and with that brings us our final four-game daily fantasy slate of the season. The tight end position is loaded with studs such as Travis Kelce and George Kittle, but here I’ll look to get you looking in the right direction for some value plays at the position. Here are your divisional round TE sleepers
Jimmy Graham, Packers ($3,300)
TE is not terribly plentiful in the low-dollar ranges, but Graham is someone who could provide some volume, and that is something to covet at this cost. The Packers have split targets up fairly evenly behind Davante Adams, with Graham’s 10% target share coming in just 2% behind Aaron Jones and Allen Lazard in a tie for second. In a must-win Week 17 game, Graham saw seven targets. He has four or more targets in three of his past four games.
Graham also has some touchdown upside. Though he has only scored three times this year, the veteran TE has 10 red-zone targets. including three targets inside of the five. He has yet to convert any of these looks into touchdowns, indicating some regression could be due in his favor. Seattle has also allowed the second-most PPR points to TEs this season.
Jacob Hollister, Seahawks ($4,000)
Playing in the same game as Graham, Hollister will cost you a little bit more money, but comes in with a fairly safe target floor. He has an 18% target share for Seattle, behind only Tyler Lockett and Wild Card round hero D.K. Metcalf. Hollister has seen at least four targets in all but two games since Week 7. His salary is a little deflated here coming off of a clunker for 3.6 DKFP against Philly.
The Packers have allowed huge games this year at the position to many of the studs they have faced this season. Five TEs have at least 15 DKFP against them. Hollister may not be quite as good as the Kelce’s of the world, but he is a high-usage player with an above-average athletic profile. Don’t forget about him this weekend.
