2023 Fantasy Football: Week 10 Tight End Rankings

Week 9 was one of those crapshoot weeks for tight ends, with Cole Kmet, Dalton Schultz, and Cade Otton finishing as the top three players. As we dive into the Week 10 tight end rankings, let’s keep our fingers crossed for more predictable finishes this week!

Tight Ends with Week 10 byes

Travis Kelce, Tyler Higbee, Durham Smythe, and Dallas Goedert

Injuries to monitor for Week 10

  • Darren Waller landed on the IR on Saturday and will be out for at least four weeks. Daniel Bellinger will be the Giants’ starting tight end while he’s out.
  • Dallas Goedert fractured his forearm and is expected to have surgery, missing multiple weeks. The Eagles are on a bye this week, but if you rostered Goedert, you’ll need to find a replacement moving forward. Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam will fill in for the Eagles in the interim.

Tight End Notes

Bye Weeks: KC, LAR, MIA, PHI

  • Dalton Schultz is coming off an explosive Week 9, catching 10-of-11 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown. Houston’s pass-catchers have benefitted from strong quarterback play, and Schultz is no exception. He has four touchdowns in his last five games and has averaged seven targets and 61 yards per game during that span. The fantasy goodness should continue in Week 10. Schultz gets a smash matchup against a Bengals team that has allowed the most fantasy points per game and fourth-most receiving yards to tight ends this season. Schultz could go off in this one and is my TE4 for Week 10.
  • Dalton Kincaid continues to post strong numbers since taking over as the Bills’ primary tight end. He led the team in targets and receptions in Week 9, catching 10-of-11 for 81 yards. Kincaid has been fantastic in the last three weeks, hauling in at least seven targets and 65 yards each game. He’s the TE4 over that span, with his 26 targets tied for third-most among the position. Up next is a juicy matchup against a Broncos team that has given up the most receiving yards and second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends through eight weeks. Fire Kincaid up with confidence in Week 10.
  • David Njoku is quietly starting to heat up. He’s scored in back-to-back games and is the TE6 in half-PPR formats over the last three weeks. He’s also sporting a 24.7% target share in that span, good for seventh-most among tight ends. Njoku has a tougher-than-not matchup against the Ravens in Week 10. But he should still be a solid play, especially with Deshaun Watson back under center. Njoku has been the Browns’ second-most targeted pass-catcher over the last three weeks, and Sunday’s game script could call for a lot of passing on Cleveland’s end. Njoku is a back-end TE1 for me in Week 10.
  • If you’re looking for a dart throw in Week 10, look no further than Irv Smith Jr. He caught his first touchdown of the season in Week 9, and he’s seen four targets in each of the past two weeks. Sure, that’s nothing to write home about. But Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offense is heating up. Plus, Smith faces off against a beatable Houston defense that has given up three touchdowns to tight ends in the last two weeks. They’ve also allowed the fourth-most fantasy points and sixth-most receiving yards to the position this year. Smith may not get a ton of volume, but this matchup should be a high-scoring affair. I like Smith’s odds of finding paydirt in Week 10.
