Week 14 TE Waiver Pickups & Adds: Logan Thomas Finally Has His Breakout Game

The song remains the same as the tight end waiver wire options are pretty limited at this point in the season. You might still be looking for coverage on Mark Andrews, who eligible to come off for next week’s game, but we still have not gotten that word. Jonnu Smith missed Week 13 with an injury, so there are two top-five scoring tight ends potentially out this week. There are some enticing matchups for streaming in Week 14 here, and you might be looking at just bulking up your bench with some extra coverage at each position as we head into the final stretch of the season. We saw how last week went and the odds of that happening again are certainly higher with cases going up.

Jordan Reed – San Francisco 49ers

Jordan Reed had a late touchdown against Buffalo to give him a relevant score for Week 13. He has two double-digit fantasy point games in the last three healthy games. Reed has 16 targets over the last three weeks and gets Washington, Dallas, and Arizona over the next three weeks. All three of these teams are favorable matchups for tight ends this season. Nick Mullens under center has kept this offense moving for fantasy. While Reed doesn’t have a high upside, he is a weekly option to be top-ten in scoring. FAAB money on tight ends is going to be limited if you are spending any here or have any left. This goes for the rest of the names as Reed isn’t a high priority option unless you are truly without a tight end somehow.

Logan Thomas – Washington Football Team

Washington took down the Steelers this past week and Logan Thomas was a big reason. He had a 9-98-1 line on nine targets and this is the highest fantasy point game of the season. His touchdown production has been far better with Alex Smith under center. He does have a couple of single-digit fantasy point weeks. but since Week 6 he has six double-digit fantasy point games and four total touchdowns. Washington faces San Francisco, Seattle, and Carolina over the next few weeks. With Smith being able to throw a decent ball and be more productive than Haskins or Allen, we see Thomas taking advantage of it. Thomas ranks third behind McLaurin and McKissic in targets. In the red zone, he has 24.5% of the targets.

Mike Gesicki – Miami Dolphins

There are two higher owned names that could be out there in shallower leagues, as average rostered percentage is around 65% so there is still a chance Gesicki is out there. He is TE8 in PPR in scoring this season and a lot of production has come over the last few weeks. That was a potential outcome of the Ford trade and Preston Williams’s injury. Gesicki leads the Dolphins in red zone targets with 15 and is second in all passing targets. Gesicki has seen at least five targets in each of the last four weeks. He faces the Chiefs, Patriots, and Raiders over the next three weeks. Chiefs and Raiders are middle of the road in fantasy points allowed to tight ends while the Patriots rank third but have not played any legitimate tight ends to cause any sort of damage.

Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears

Cole Kmet is a deep league add or for those with deeper benches and want to have a last-ditch effort play if needed on the weekend. Kmet played 78% of the snaps against the Lions this week and has been getting more run. This is a plus for him and we are finally getting Jimmy Graham out of the way. Kmet is one of the more talented rookie tight ends. Kmet had seven targets against the Lions and caught five of them for 37 yards and a score. Chicago has a sneaky good fantasy matchup the rest of the way with Houston, Minnesota, and Jacksonville all over the next three weeks. As bad as the Bears offense has been, they should put up some points in all three spots.

Robert Tonyan – Green Bay Packers

Robert Tonyan is in that Gesicki range for a rostered percentage but there is a chance he is out there in smaller leagues. Tonyan has been on the list for the last few weeks and has been putting up strong games. He has three games with a touchdown and 19 targets over the last four weeks. He has three double-digit fantasy point games in a row and four in his last six games. Green Bay has a tremendous schedule for the rest of the way, facing Detroit, Carolina, Tennessee, and Chicago. The Panthers and Titans have allowed the 8th and 9th most fantasy points per game to tight ends and the Bears have allowed the third most.
