So I have gigbit internet now have several smart Tv’s . My thought is to run home runs to each tv for internet. Upstairs I have 4 tv’s can I run cat 6 from each to a switch then the switch to the fios router? So as to only take up one port on my router. Right train of thought?

That'll work fine. Though for a smaller location such as a home, I generally like to have a single point to which all the ethernet runs converge.

This option will work just fine.

Yep, you'll be fine with that. :) And you may even be able to get away with a 10/100 switch since most tv ports are still 100Mbps. Although having 1g from the router would be useful and you'd only be saving like $5 with a 10/100 switch vs gigabit.
