TE Help - NonPPR / Distance Scoring

TE Help - NonPPR / Distance Scoring

I need to pick up and start one of these:

  1. Hurst vs KC
  2. Moreau vs LAC
  3. T Hill at TB

Taysom Hill may look intriguing at first, as he’s essentially an RB you can start in your TE slot. But his ground production is random at best, and non-existent through the air. His yardage in recent weeks: 20 - 60 - 1 - 6 - 72 - 12. And only 1 TD in those 6 weeks. Not the kind of player I’d like to start.

Hurst - compare his yardage to Hill’s above: 57 - 28 - 35 - 42 - 48 - 21. No TD either, but at least, he comes with a floor.

Moreau’s yardage is lower, but at least he scores a TD every now and then. Provided they give you points in your league, Moreau’s upside may be a tad higher, but he’s TD dependent.

Most any TE can get you 4-6 pts in any given week, and there’s always a significant chance they get 2-3 less than that (unless their name is Kelce or Andrews). So there’s really no need to fear Taysom Hill putting up 5 pts or so (+/- 2 pts or so); you make the Hill play because there’s an abnormally large chance that he drops a 20 burger or something. Very little risk, very high reward.

Moreau is the default starting TE for the Raiders, and he is actually ok. I start him in a few leagues and he gives me points, albeit nothing in the Kelce territory. He won’t win weeks for me, but he doesn’t give me goose eggs at TE either.
