The TE position remains the weakest in fantasy football. That makes it very difficult for narrow trades to trade. Reviewing everything we saw in Week 11 and translating it into Week 12 TE trade targets is where fantasy managers will set themselves apart.
To help you wrap your head around everything, here are some thoughts on the tight ends to buy low or sell high Week 12.
Which TEs should you trade for in fantasy football?
Jake Ferguson, Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys passing attack needs pieces. But CD Cow is too expensive, and Brandin Cooks isn’t good enough. That leaves Jake Ferguson as a potential target in a trade.
Ferguson caught just three balls for 32 yards against the Panthers. The Cowboys had a positive game script throughout.

The rest of the schedule is too convenient to pass. The Cowboys will face some tough opponents who will need to keep their momentum going. This means more targets for Ferguson. Buy it now if you can.
Which TEs Should You Trade in Fantasy Football?
Dalton Schultz, Houston Texans
After a slow start to the season, Dalton Schultz has stepped up as of late. He has scored double-digit fantasy points in six of his last seven. In that span, he also recorded five touchdowns.
Schultz benefited from a good tight end schedule, though. And that’s all about to change.

During the fantasy season, Weeks 15-17, Schultz will face two of the best tight ends defenses (the Texans play the Titans twice). He’ll be as dependent on touchdowns as any on teams that don’t give up touchdowns in the field.
It’s hard to trade in tight ends because you can’t find replacements on weaver wire. But if you have two or your business partner can give you one back, Schultz is a great person to move.

Should you trade Dalton Schultz for Sam LaPorta?
Schultz has been more effective than Sam LaPorta over the past few weeks. This is a good time to use that to your advantage and maybe even get the starter to wrap up the Schulte in a small piece.
Schultz’s schedule doesn’t do him any favors. It started this past week, when he caught just two passes. Fortunately, he saved the day with a touch. That might trick the unlikely fantasy manager into thinking Schultz is still safe. I don’t think it will.
LaPorta is on a two-game losing streak. But his schedule is about to really unfold. After the Packers this Thursday, the Lions play a three-game series against bottom-10 tight-end defenses. Now is a good time to follow him.
Should you trade David Njoku for Jake Ferguson?
After a slow start to the season, David Njoku has been on fire lately. He has scored double-digit fantasy points in five straight games playing against three different quarterbacks.
Last week, Njoku scored a staggering 15 goals. He has 13 receptions over the past two games.
With Dorian Thompson-Robinson at quarterback, Njoku’s touches are down, but the volume is pretty tight all the way. I buy that it will continue.
While I like Ferguson and think this is a good time to see if they can get him off the manager, I’d hang up on Njoku in this case.
