When it comes to the tight end position, fantasy football managers either aim for an elite tight end or look for fantasy football streamers on the waiver wire. Streaming a tight end each week can be a nightmare because the position is essentially a wasteland more often than not, aside from the usual top options. However, if you’ve taken this route this year, read on for three fantasy football Week 7 TE streamers that are worth your consideration.
Keep in mind, there are four teams on a bye (BUF, LAR, MIN, PHI).
Players must be owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the fantasy football Week 7 TE streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Fantasy Football Week 7 TE Streamers
Hayden Hurst Fantasy Outlook vs. ATL (49.7%)
Hayden Hurst has been inconsistent so far, which is why his ownership is still less than 50 percent. When looking at fantasy football streamers at tight end, volume and overall surrounding cast should determine whether or not fantasy managers decide to take the risk or not. He has busted a few times, but he has also boomed in two games with double-digit fantasy performances. The Falcons are the fifth-worst team against opposing tight ends thus far. With the awaited A.J Terrell and Ja’Marr Chase matchup, Hurst could see plenty of volume, especially in the red zone.

Evan Engram Fantasy Outlook vs. NYG (29.8%)
The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has the pieces to be good but it’s been a slow process to start the season. One game they’ll look very good, then they’ll barely score a single touchdown the next. Outside of Christian Kirk and the running backs, Trevor Lawrence doesn’t have many targets, but Evan Engram has been a sneaky option simply for his volume. Unfortunately, the production hasn’t been good enough thus far but he’s been targeted at least four times in four of six games and has eclipsed double-digit fantasy points in two of those.
Mike Gesicki Fantasy Outlook vs. PIT (42.4%)
Fantasy managers must temper expectations with Mike Gesicki this week because Tua Tagovailoa is likely returning to the lineup. Gesicki did not do much in fantasy during the first few weeks in which Tagovailoa played, which suggests his volume and production may take a hit moving forward. However, he did score two touchdowns last week and showed why he can be trusted in the red zone, so the Dolphins may try to incorporate him more into the gameplan with Tagovailoa behind center.
