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 12 fantasy football streamers at tight end that may be available for a pickup.
Week 12 Fantasy Football Streamers at TE
Robert Tonyan, GB (vs. CHI)
Robert Tonyan has emerged as a major part of this Green Bay Packers offense. Chicago has a good enough defense to put Green Bay in passing situations this week. If this is the case, Chicago will have to focus on Davante Adams. With the field stretching ability of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard, Tonyan should be able to work the middle of the field by himself. When Green Bay is in the red zone this week, Tonyan is a big reliable target Rodgers may look to. He may be the top streamer at the position this week.
Will Dissly, SEA (vs. PHI)
With Greg Olsen out due to injury, and Will Dissly immediately moves to the number one spot on the depth chart. Dissly was having a career year last year before he went down with an injury. It would greatly benefit Seattle if they could get him involved in the passing game. The combination of Seattle’s inefficient run game and Philadelphia’s ability to stop the run, Seattle will have to pass the ball. Dissly is a safe big target that Wilson can take advantage of in short yardage situations like the red zone, making him an ideal streamer at the position.

Trey Burton, IND (vs. TEN)
Even though all three of the Colts’ tight ends are available, it seems like Trey Burton has become the favorite of Philip Rivers. Burton is an athletic tight end who the Colts feature as a gadget player, which is perfect for a TE streamer. Rivers has traditionally relied on his tight ends in tight divisional games. Burton caught a touchdown last week against Green Bay. Burton may be touchdown dependent, but it can be a risk worth taking, because Indianapolis does use Burton in the redone in a variety of ways.
