Kevin Hanson joins SI for the 2019 season. His fantasy rankings have placed him in the Top 20 in each of the past two seasons among all the industry experts tracked by FantasyPros.com, and he has been in the Top 25 in six of the past eight years.

Check out more of Kevin’s rankings: QB, RB, WRkicker, defense and flex.

TE Start of the Week: Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles (vs. WAS)

Over his past four games, Dallas Goedert has a minimum of six targets every week. While teammate Zach Ertz (44) leads tight ends in targets since Week 11, Goedert is fourth (27). Among tight ends, only Ertz (33) and Darren Waller (21) have more receptions than Goedert during that span.

Washington has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. With Alshon Jeffery (foot) out for the rest of the season and Nelson Agholor’s (knee) status “up in the air,” the Eagles should continue to rely heavily upon their TE duo in Week 15.

TE Sit of the Week: Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys (vs. LAR)

Witten has five-plus catches and seven-plus targets in three of his past four games, but he is a low-upside option in a difficult matchup this week. The 37-year-old tight end has yet to reach 60 yards in a game this season and he has 37 yards or less in five of his past seven games.

The Rams have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season.
