Dalton Schultz Returns To Practice

Wednesday, December 6, 3:40 PM

Houston Texans tight end Dalton Schultz (hamstring) returned to the practice field on Wednesday after missing the Week 13 win over the Denver Broncos with a hamstring ailment. Schultz might have just been limited on Wednesday, but the fact he's practicing at all this early in the week is a good sign that he can return to face the New York Jets on the road in Week 14 this Sunday. The 27-year-old has been a boom-or-bust fantasy tight end this year, but perhaps he'll be a more stable target for rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud down the stretch now that rookie receiver Tank Dell (leg) is out for the rest of the season. Schultz will be back on the TE1 map in fantasy this weekend if he gets the green light to play.

Pat Freiermuth Faces Tough Challenge In Week 14

Wednesday, December 6, 7:24 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth will take the field for his eighth appearance of the campaign against the New England Patriots in Week 14. Although Freiermuth displayed his potential to be a solid fantasy asset as recently as Week 12, he'll be difficult to trust on Thursday night with the Patriots surrendering the third-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends this season. Furthermore, the Steelers will be forced to start Mitch Trubisky at quarterback with starter Kenny Pickett (ankle) injured. Freiermuth's output was inconsistent with Trubisky under center in 2022. He is likely still a better starting option than any tight end available on waiver wires, but fantasy managers should temper their expectations for the 25-year-old in this matchup.
