Let’s break down 10 tight end sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 11.
Week 11 will mark the bye week for a few impactful fantasy tight ends including Noah Fant and Tyler Higbee. If you are searching for a sleeper to start this week, here are ten options.
10. John Bates, Washington Football Team
Washington’s tight end group has been plagued by injuries. Ricky Seals-Jones exited last Sunday’s game with a hip injury, and he is currently listed as questionable for this Sunday’s game. He did not practice on Wednesday.
OT Saahdiq Charles (illness)
CB Kendall Fuller (knee)
WR Curtis Samuel (groin)
TE R. Seals-Jones (hip)
CB Ben St-Juste (concussion)
OT Sam Cosmi (ankle)
RB Antonio Gibson (shin)
WR Terry McLaurin (shoulder)
TE Sammis Reyes (hip)
G Brandon Scherff (knee)

Logan Thomas remains on the IR. He was eligible to return last week, but he still is not practicing.
As a result, rookie John Bates could start at tight end for Washington this Sunday. Bates was selected in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. In the absence of Seals-Jones, Bates had three receptions for 25 yards last Sunday against the Buccaneers.
He is an interesting streaming option in deeper leagues.
9. Gerald Everett, Seattle Seahawks
Everett is coming off his best performance of the season, thus far. He set new season-high marks in receptions (8), receiving yards (63), and targets (8).
With Russell Wilson at quarterback, Everett’s statistics have been significantly better. He is averaging 9.0 fantasy points per game when Wilson is the starter this season. Comparatively, he is averaging a mere 4.2 fantasy points per game with Geno Smith as the starter.
Everett is another solid streaming option in deeper leagues.
