It’s crazy to think that this is the last week of the NFL regular season! Now that Damar Hamlin seems to be making MASSIVE progress, we focus some of our attention back to the field. The NFL is in the midst of shafting the Cincinnati Bengals for doing the right thing, but you all saw it. Let’s find some ways to cash in for the final week of the season!
The Eagles have a lot to play for in Week 18, including potentially locking up home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Even with Jalen Hurts out, Goedert is on my radar here. The Giants are 21st in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to opposing TE.
Despite missing time this season, Goedert is still posting solid numbers. Gardnew Minshew will likely be under center again, but there is still an outside shot that Jalen Hurts suits up. Regardless, I’m on Goedert as a solid option this week with plenty to play for.
Not only is George Kittle the best TE on the Sunday slate, but the 49ers have an outside shot at the #1 seed in NFC with a win and a PHI loss. Kittle has been on fire of late, hauling in 14 of 21 targets for 236 yards and FIVE scores over his last three games.
Arizona has nothing to play for, and they have been the worst defense in the NFL against TE. If you’re paying up this week, Kittle is the easy option. Your only hesitation here is a potential blowout with Arizona missing plenty of key starters.
The Cowboys are yet another team with plenty to play for in Week 18. A win and a PHI loss gives them the NFC East crown. Add in a 49ers loss, and they could clinch home field throughout the playoffs. While one or both of those scenarios is unlikely, Schultz should still be a busy man on Sunday.
The Commanders have actually been a top-10 team against opposing TE in terms of fantasy points allowed. He could come up big time for Dallas the way he did last week against Tennessee (7-56-2 on 10 targets).
Despite their best efforts early this season, the Steelers have recovered and still have an outside shot at the playoffs. Kenny Pickett has looked better, the defense is playing well, and Pat keeps getting looks. Aside from the donut against Carolina a few weeks back, he has seen at least six targets in three straight games.
The Steelers passing game as a whole has been unimpressive this season, but Freiermuth has a decent floor and some upside here. The Browns have been solid against TE, but hatred fuels plenty in a big game like this. I’m expecting a battle, and Pat should have his hand in this one.
Thanks for joining me this season for all my TE ramblings! It has been a pleasure, despite a really tough season for tight ends. Hope you all made some cash, and let’s cash in one more time for the 2022 season!
