Tucker Kraft News
Green Bay Packers tight end Tucker Kraft will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13 on Sunday night. The rookie caught his first career touchdown last week in a win over the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately, he saw just two targets while playing 96% of the snaps with Luke Musgrave (kidney) out. Being on the field for nearly 100% of the snaps is great, but he is not generating a high enough target share to have confidence in streaming him weekly. The Chiefs allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends and have given up just two touchdowns to the position all year. With quarterback Jordan Love spreading the ball around to multiple receivers, Kraft is little more than a touchdown-dependent, low-tier streaming option in Week 13.
Green Bay Packers tight end Tucker Kraft caught both of his targets for 15 yards and a touchdown during the team's 29-22 win over the Detroit Lions. With Luke Musgrave (abdomen) out, Kraft took over as the top tight end for Green Bay and found the end zone for the first time in his career. While it was nice to see Kraft find the end zone, five other players on the team had more targets than him and will remain off the streaming radar until he can establish a higher target share. With the Kansas City Chiefs coming to Green Bay next week, fantasy managers will need to look for better options to stream off of the waiver wire. Watch the rookie's target share in the tough matchup, and if he can get it high enough, he will become a potential streamer when the Packers schedule starts to open up in Week 14.
Green Bay Packers tight end Tucker Kraft will go on the road to take on the Detroit Lions in Week 12 on Thanksgiving. The rookie will step into the starting role with fellow rookie Luke Musgrave (abdomen) being placed on Injured Reserve this week after suffering a scary injury and being hospitalized. Kraft has not done much this season but has been more involved over the past two weeks, garnering five targets. There is no clear indication that he will be the only player replacing Musgrave. Veteran Josiah Deguara will likely see some run with the starters on Thursday as well. Detroit has allowed the 13th-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position, so the matchup shouldn't scare fantasy managers. However, with no indication of how well Kraft will gel with quarterback Jordan Love, it is best to take a wait-and-see approach to the rookie for fantasy purposes.
Green Bay Packers rookie tight end Tucker Kraft was selected in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, meaning he'll almost certainly make the 53-man roster. However, the Packers took Oregon State tight end Luke Musgrave in the second round, meaning he'll have the early edge for the starting tight end job in 2023. That's not to say Kraft can't beat him out, but he'll have to impress mightily in offseason practices and preseason to beat out the player with higher draft capital. Kraft caught 99...
