We take you through some of the best non-PPR tight ends going into Week 4 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Week 3 brought us Dalton Schultz, Tyler Conklin, and Zach Ertz as the Top 3 non-PPR tight ends. That’s not a Top 3 many were expecting this week or any week for that matter. It just goes to show you how tough predicting fantasy tight ends are, especially in non-PPR, which is driven by unpredictable touchdowns versus more predictable receptions.

Touchdowns for Dawson Knox, Tyler Higbee, Pat Freiermuth and Austin Hooper helped prop each up despite none seeing over five targets. Each of these tight ends have fantasy value, but consistency will only come for those tight end who can continue to see seven or more targets per game. So far, the only tight ends to average that number are Darren Waller, Travis Kelce, and T.J. Hockenson.

Injury news

Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers

With Tom Brady and Gronkowski returning to New England this week, Gronkowski’s rib injury takes on even more significance. The good news is that there is no structural damage. That means he’ll likely play, but he could be limited to a degree.
