Fantasy Football Week 6 Tight End Streamers, Sleepers, Stashes: Add Logan Thomas, Dalton Schultz

At long last, a productive week from Dallas Goedert and Darren Waller. Big props to the managers who stuck it out to this point. However, we did see the first dud from TJ Hockenson and a non-contact injury to Travis Kelce. Week 6 is a down week for byes, with only Pittsburgh and Green Bay taking the week to recoup. If you have been streaming TEs for the last few weeks, or if you have been following along with this TE streamer content, check out the crop of sub-50% owned at the position on the Week 6 Waiver Wire.

Note: Roster % based on Yahoo!

LOGAN THOMAS, WAS (17%)

PPR points per game: 8.3, 10.2, 0, 7.3, 20.7

In a shocking turn of events, Logan Thomas turned back the clock and led the Commanders in all receiving categories, winding up with nine catches on 11 targets for 77 yards and a score. It’s perplexing, to say the least.

Sam Howell has looked to Thomas in every facet of the game through the first five weeks, and the 32-year-old is squarely positioned as a TE1 moving forward. He sits at TE9 overall and faces an uber-TE-friendly schedule over the next three weeks. ATL/NYG/PHI rank 4th, 15th, and 3rd in points conceded to TEs this year. Thomas should be the top priority at the position on the waiver wire.

DALTON SCHULTZ, HOU (36%)

PPR points per week: 2.4, 7.4, 1.9, 13.2, 19.5

One of the more intriguing stories from the first five weeks of the season has been the aptitude of the Houston Texans. CJ Stroud looks to be the real deal, and they boast a deep roster of fantasy-viable assets only a year removed from being one Lovie Smith decision away from the #1 overall draft pick. After a slow start and taking a back seat to Nico Collins and Tank Dell, Dalton Schultz has emerged as one of those assets.

He has scored a TD in back to back games, tallying 10 targets in Week 5. Collins is the clear top target moving forward, but with Dell questionable for Week 6 with a concussion, Schultz should be primed to continue his TD streak into the upcoming matchup with the Saints.

CADE OTTON, TB (2% ROSTERED)

PPR points per game: 3.9, 10.1, 2.6, 10.3

Many thought, myself included, that Cade Otton‘s success last year was strictly tied to the presence of Tom Brady. However, Otton has cemented himself as a productive option in Tampa Bay’s passing attack.

He ranked third in TE route participation in Week 4, involved in 90% of every pass play. Otton also leads the league (!!!!) in snap share in 2023, with seemingly no roster competition at the position. The Bucs draw the Lions in Week 6, who rank 31st in defending TEs, and I predict another solid line from the second-year pro.
