We’re getting to the very end of the fantasy football regular season. This means the playoffs are right around the corner. In this article, we have organized the worst fantasy football playoff schedules for tight ends, which include Weeks 15-17. We have also organized the best fantasy playoff schedules for TEs, so you know who to avoid in the pursuit of your fantasy league’s trophy, championship belt, or champ chain this season!
Top 5 Worst Fantasy Football Playoff Schedules
1. David Njoku Fantasy Schedule
Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Ravens, vs Saints, at Commanders
David Njoku has surprised many this season by consistently being a reliable tight end when healthy. That said, he has been struggling with an ankle and now a knee injury since Week 10. Managers are also wise to question how the Browns’ quarterback change from Jacoby Brissett to Deshaun Watson will impact Njoku’s usage and target share. His Fantasy Football Playoffs schedule is rough as well with all three opponents ranking in the top 11 for fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing TEs. In Weeks 16 and 17 with fantasy championships on the line, Njoku will have to contend with the two best defenses at defending the position.
2. Dallas Goedert Fantasy Schedule
Fantasy Football Schedule: at Bears, at Cowboys, vs Saints
While Dallas Goedert is still on IR, he is expected to come back during the regular season. If the Eagles do decide to bring him back, he will return to face a brutal Fantasy Football Playoffs schedule. All teams that Goedert will go up against in Weeks 15-17 are among the top six defenses in terms of the fewest fantasy points allowed to TEs. If you already have Goedert on your IR slot or bench, you may want to consider keeping your current starting tight end around long-term due to the tough matchups he has.
3. Brock Wright and James Mitchell Fantasy Schedule
Fantasy Football Schedule: at Jets, at Panthers, vs Bears
In the aftermath of TJ Hockenson being traded to the Vikings, none of the Lions’ remaining TEs have risen to fantasy football prominence. Other than the trifecta of touchdowns in the two games immediately following the trade, each of Brock Wright, Shane Zylstra and James Mitchell has been irrelevant for fantasy purposes. It’s looking even more gloomy moving forward. The Jets will be the easiest opponent in this schedule, as they rank 15th in fantasy points allowed to opposing TEs this season. After that, both games are against two of the ten best defenses at defending the position.

4. Juwan Johnson Fantasy Schedule
Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Falcons, at Browns, at Eagles
Juwan Johnson has been a touchdown machine in recent weeks and likely helped you “wan” your matchups. However, he was blanked in Week 12, and that rough outing could be a sign of things to come in the Fantasy Football Playoffs. Johnson has a great matchup in Week 15 against the Falcons, who are the 11th-worst defense against opposing TEs. It’s very grim after that, as he goes back-to-back weeks against teams ranked among the top seven in fewest fantasy points allowed to the position. The fact that the Saints have a late bye in Week 14 throws yet another wrinkle into the fray.
5. Logan Thomas Fantasy Schedule
Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Giants, at 49ers, vs Browns
When healthy, Logan Thomas has been a decent tight end streamers option for most of the season. Going forward, he has a rather unique Fantasy Football Playoffs schedule. In Week 15, Thomas will face a Giants defense that ranks as the sixth-worst against TEs. That’s easily the most favorable matchup out of all the players included in this list! On the downside, things get much tougher from there. Thomas faces two of the top four teams in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing TEs in Weeks 16-17.
