Jake Ferguson Has An Excellent Matchup In Week 3

Thursday, September 21, 2:02 PM

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson has an excellent matchup in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals. Ferguson scored a touchdown in Week 2 and finished as the overall TE11, but he only has a 15.9% target share, likely leaving him as a touchdown dependent streaming option at best. Still, the Cardinals defense allowed the most yards to tight ends last season and they've allowed the third most yards to tight ends this year. The matchup doesn't get much better than this for a tight end, but Ferguson is still just a high-end TE2.
