If you have a little uncertainty at the tight end position, you may need to search the waivers to see who is available for a plug and play. These are the top Week 10 fantasy football streamers at tight end that may be available for a pickup.
Week 10 Fantasy Football Streamers at TE
Austin Hooper, CLE (vs HOU)
Austin Hooper is back from injury, which means he should immediately be thrust into the starting tight end spot. With Odell Beckham Jr. being out for the year due to injury, Hooper should be a big reliable target for Baker Mayfield. Only owned in 55% of ESPN leagues, Houston’s defense is very susceptible to giving up points to opposing tight ends. Houston also gives up a lot of yards on the ground. Hooper is a good enough blocker to stay on the field for the majority of the game. With a strong run game, Cleveland should be able to get their play action going, which can only help Hooper.
Look for Hooper to catch a handful of targets this week and find the end zone at least once, based on the bad Houston defense. That is more than enough to be a great streamer for your team.

Irv Smith Jr., MIN (vs CHI)
Irv Smith Jr. has become a part of this Minnesota passing offense. He is a big reliable target for Kirk Cousins to dump passes to. What is encouraging for Smith is that the two receptions he had last week went for two touchdowns. Minnesota plays Chicago this week, who is 28th against the tight end position this season. With all of the eyes on Dalvin Cook this week, it is inevitable that Chicago’s linebackers will cheat up on the run. This opens the door for Smith to thrive in the middle of the field. Minnesota should feature the young tight end in the red zone on Monday, because Cook is such a huge threat. He is a sneaky streamer for fantasy football Week 10.
Trey Burton, IND (vs TEN)
Trey Burton needs to be on your radar if you are a Travis Kelce owner. With the injury to Jack Doyle, Burton immediately becomes a weapon for Phil Rivers and the Colts offense. Burton is an athletic tight end who the Colts feature as a gadget player. Rivers has traditionally relied on his tight ends in tight divisional games. Colts vs Titans is a big one in the AFC South, and it is no doubt that Rivers will have to be at the top of his game against a solid Titans team. Another plus to streaming Burton this week is that he has two rushing touchdowns this year. If the Colts make it to the red zone, look for them to involve Burton in creative ways to get him in the end zone.
