Let’s break down 10 tight end sleepers to target for fantasy football Week 7.

Week 8 will mark the bye week for a couple of impactful fantasy tight ends in Darren Waller and Mark Andrews. If you are searching for a sleeper to start this week, here are ten options.

10. Pharaoh Brown, Houston Texans

Rostered: 0.1%

Pharaoh Brown led the Texans’ tight end group last week with three targets. This season, Brown is quietly fourth on the team in targets, but I did not pick him this week due to his recent performance.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to start this Sunday for the first time since Week 2. With Taylor at quarterback, the Texans’ offense was much more dynamic. Taylor was playing, perhaps, the best football of his career. In fact, he led the NFL in total QBR after Week 2.

As a result, Brown and the Texans’ receivers were in better positions for fantasy production. In Week 1, Brown had 10.7 PPR points with Taylor at quarterback.

Brown is an underrated option in deep leagues.

9. Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars

Rostered: 3.3%

Dan Arnold’s fantasy value has risen since arriving in Jacksonville. Arnold has played a larger role for the Jaguars than he did for the Panthers. He has been targeted 13 times over the past two games. In three games with the Panthers, Arnold was targeted a total of 11 times.

In Week 5, Arnold even led the Jaguars in targets.

Arnold has not had a big game, yet, but it feels like a matter of time until he has a breakout performance.
