Tight end PPR rankings for Week 11 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best PPR tight ends going in Week 11 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Friday injury report

T.J. Hockenson was taken off the injury report and is good to go against the Panthers. He should have plenty of work with Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola out.

Robert Tonyan has been taken off the injury report and is ready to face the Colts.

Irv Smith Jr. is questionable to face the Cowboys after getting limited practices this week.

Noah Fant is questionable with a rib injury to face the Dolphins.

Mo Alie-Cox was taken off the injury list and appears to be healthy for the first time in a while. Jack Doyle is also questionable with a concussion, but appears close to being cleared. All three of the Colts tight ends may be healthy for their matchup with the Packers.

Out: Josh Hill (concussion), James O’Shaughnessy (knee), MyCole Pruitt (knee)
Questionable: Irv Smith (groin), Chris Manhertz (shoulder), Jack Doyle (concussion), Noah Togiai (knee), Noah Fant (ribs), Ryan Izzo (hamstring, hand)

Thursday injury report

Irv Smith Jr. returned to practice, giving him a chance to play this week.

Robert Tonyan continues to be limited, but will likely suit up this week.

Jack Doyle still needs to be cleared of his concussion, but he did get a full practice in and should return.

DNP: Josh Hill (concussion), Marcedes Lewis (knee), James O’Shaughnessy (knee), MyCole Pruitt (knee)
Limited: Irv Smith (groin), T.J. Hockenson (toe), Chris Manhertz (shoulder), Robert Tonyan (ankle), Mo Alie-Cox (knee), Noah Fant (ribs), Ryan Izzo (hamstring, hand), Tyler Eifert (shoulder)
Full: Jack Doyle (concussion), Darren Waller (back), Durham Smythe (knee)

Wednesday injury report

The big absence is Noah Fant with a rib injury. It’s a new injury as he was dealing with an ankle issue last week.

Irv Smith missed last week’s game with a groin injury, so it is good to see him back even if it’s only in limited fashion. He was a DNP all last week.

DNP: Josh Hill (concussion), Jack Doyle (concussion), Noah Fant (ribs), James O’Shaughnessy (knee), MyCole Pruitt (knee)
Limited: Irv Smith (groin), T.J. Hockenson (toe), Chris Manhertz (shoulder), Mo Alie-Cox (knee)
Full: Darren Waller (back), Durham Smythe (knee)

Mark Andrews was your PPR TE1 last week with seven receptions for 61 yards. That is some depressing news for the state of the tight end position. At least this week Travis Kelce returns, but there’s no doubt that we are in dark times at the position. Cameron Brate, Pharaoh Brown, Richard Rodgers, Durham Smythe, Dan Arnold and Colin Thompson were all players who would have given you better finishes than Darren Waller, Dallas Goedert, Mike Gesicki, Eric Ebron, Noah Fant, Evan Engram and the list goes on and on.

Injury news

Zach Ertz has been designated to return, but he’ll still need to be activated to play this week.

Nick Boyle has been put on I.R. which might help Mark Andrews see a couple more targets moving forward.

Bye weeks

San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills

Streaming options

Eric Ebron, Pittsburgh Steelers

Playing the Jaguars is always a good time to spread the ball around and Ebron could benefit. On the season, Jacksonville has allowed the third-most fantasy points to tight ends.

Hayden Hurst, Atlanta Falcons

The Saints have given up the most targets per game to tight ends and the sixth-most PPR fantasy points to tight ends on the season. Hurst has hit double-digit PPR points in his last four games, and even with Calvin Ridley likely back, I like his floor in this matchup.
