The case for Ebron starts with his opponent. The Jaguars have allowed the fourth most Fantasy points to tight ends this season and they've also surrendered the second most yards per reception and touchdowns to the position. Ebron has at least six targets in three of four games and has also scored double-digit PPR points in the same number of games.
Schultz is a little bit sneakier. The Vikings aren't a particularly great matchup, but they don't have a very good defense either. For his part, Schultz has 15 targets in his past two games and has averaged more than six targets per game since Week 2.
Neither Ebron or Schultz is particularly exciting, but in Week 11 they could be solid low-end starters.

Week 11 TE Preview
Numbers to Know
- 9 -- Targets for Mark Andrews in Week 10. That tied his career-high.
- 13 -- Red-zone targets for Darren Waller, tied with Travis Kelce and Jimmy Graham for most among tight ends.
- 6 -- Hayden Hurst has at least six targets in five of the Falcons' past six games.
- 0 -- The Colts have still not allowed a receiving touchdown to a tight end this season.
- 14.7 -- Mo Alie-Cox is averaging 14.7 yards per reception. That's one way around low volume.
Matchups that matter
Waiver Wire Targets
DAL Dallas • #86
Age: 24 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Dalton Schultz has sneakily been a high-target guy. Since Week 2 he's averaging more than six targets per game. he has a good matchup in Week 11 and should be more efficient with Andy Dalton back.
The Bengals are one of the worst teams in the league defending tight ends, and Thomas has 10 Fantasy points in three of his past four outings. Maybe more importantly, he has six targets in his past two games.
Hayden Hurst TE
ATL Atlanta • #81
Age: 27 • Experience: 3 yrs.
Travis Kelce and Darren Waller play on Sunday night, which leaves Hurst as my top projected tight end on the slate. That doesn't feel right, but neither would anyone else. I like Hurst's target rate and the game's high over-under. i also like that he's cheaper than guys like T.J. Hockenson, Dallas Goedert and Mark Andrews.
