With the fantasy football playoffs just two weeks away, finding value in a player’s matchup is more important than ever. Here’s a look at three tight ends with good matchups this week.

Fantasy football, Week 13: Best TE Matchups

Pat Freiermuth vs. Arizona Cardinals

What a difference a week makes. Freiermuth returned from injured reserve and promptly put up 120 yards on nine catches in the Steelers' new-look offense. Now he gets a mouth-water matchup against a Cardinals defense that just allowed two touchdowns to Rams tight end Tyler Higbee last week.

Trey McBride vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

McBride caught seven passes for 60 yards last week against the Rams, and now is going against a Steelers defense that allowed a touchdown catch to Bengals tight end Drew Sample last week. McBride’s been a top-15 tight end over the past three weeks and is one of Kyler Murray’s few reliable options in the passing game.

Evan Engram vs. Cincinnati Bengals

After allowing 120 yards receiving to Freiermuth last week, the Bengals defense is going against a Jaguars offense that’s built around getting Engram the ball. He’s had at least six targets in 10 straight games and has recorded a catch of 20+ yards in four of his last five games.
