Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Jimmy Graham
    3. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS103
    5. REC TD1

    The 49ers have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends. Yeah, I'm still starting Graham with confidence.

    1. 2
    2. Jordan Reed
    3. Jordan
      Reed
      TE
    4. REC YDS86
    5. REC TD1

    Reed caught six passes for 62 yards and a TD against the Vikings. While the Eagles have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends, you no doubt feel comfortable with him as your starter.

    1. 3
    2. Scott Chandler
    3. Scott
      Chandler
      TE
    4. REC YDS74
    5. REC TD1

    Chandler had a typical game last week, catching three passes for 21 yards.

    1. 4
    2. Rob Gronkowski
    3. Rob
      Gronkowski
      TE
    4. REC YDS73
    5. REC TD1

    Look for the Patriots to turn to Gronk early and often in this game. If they can get the Panthers linebackers tied up in coverage, it could open up a lot of other facets of their offense.

    1. 5
    2. Antonio Gates
    3. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    4. REC YDS72
    5. REC TD1

    The Dolphins allow the sixth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, making Gates an even stronger play than usual.

    1. 6
    2. Tony Gonzalez
    3. Tony
      Gonzalez
      TE
    4. REC YDS67
    5. REC TD1

    Gonzalez caught just three passes for 29 yards last week and has been a major disappointment since Julio Jones' season-ending foot injury.

    1. 7
    2. Coby Fleener
    3. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    4. REC YDS62
    5. REC TD1

    While Fleener had just four catches for 33 yards, the 10 targets he got from Luck were encouraging. Credit the Rams defense. You can start Fleener confidently this week.

    1. 8
    2. Charles Clay
    3. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    4. REC YDS62
    5. REC TD1

    Clay caught four of his eight targets for 21 yards a week ago. He had some juice earlier in the season, but has now put up four straight games with fewer than seven points.

    1. 9
    2. Tim Wright
    3. Tim
      Wright
      TE
    4. REC YDS56
    5. REC TD1

    Wright got just one target last week, but he could bounce back against an Atlanta defense that has struggled against the pass.

    1. 10
    2. Dallas Clark
    3. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    4. REC YDS47
    5. REC TD1

    Clark had one catch last week, a one-yard TD reception. He should not be on your radar.

    1. 11
    2. Julius Thomas
    3. Julius
      Thomas
      TE
    4. REC YDS40
    5. REC TD1

    Thomas played through injury last week and pleased his owners right off the bat with a 74-yard touchdown. Play him as usual.

    1. 12
    2. Jordan Cameron
    3. Jordan
      Cameron
      TE
    4. REC YDS83
    5. REC TD0

    The Bengals have been relatively tough on opposing tight ends, but that shouldn't stop you from starting Cameron, week in, week out one of the five best at the position.

    1. 13
    2. Greg Olsen
    3. Greg
      Olsen
      TE
    4. REC YDS66
    5. REC TD0

    Olsen had just one catch for 14 yards last week. Such is life as a non-elite tight end. If he's your starter, you should feel fine playing him this week.

    1. 14
    2. Heath Miller
    3. Heath
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS60
    5. REC TD0

    The Lions allow the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends, making Miller a tough guy to start this week.

    1. 15
    2. Delanie Walker
    3. Delanie
      Walker
      TE
    4. REC YDS57
    5. REC TD0

    Walker made the most of a solid matchup, catching four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars. The Colts have surrenedered the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 16
    2. Tyler Eifert
    3. Tyler
      Eifert
      TE
    4. REC YDS56
    5. REC TD0

    Eifert caught three passes for 55 yards with Jermaine Gresham out. If he's the sole active tight end again, he'd be worth consideration.

    1. 17
    2. Rob Housler
    3. Rob
      Housler
      TE
    4. REC YDS54
    5. REC TD0

    Housler had four catches for 57 yards and a touchdown last week, and is a sneaky play against a Jaguars team allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 18
    2. Vernon Davis
    3. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    4. REC YDS54
    5. REC TD0

    Davis' status remains uncertain for Sunday, but it sounds like he will play. If he's your guy, you should feel comfortable rolling with him.

    1. 19
    2. Garrett Graham
    3. Garrett
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS46
    5. REC TD0

    Graham continues to disappoint in place of Owen Daniels. His inability to step in for the talented tight end has something to do with Houston's underachieving season.

    1. 20
    2. John Carlson
    3. John
      Carlson
      TE
    4. REC YDS46
    5. REC TD0

    Carlson caught seven passes for 98 yards and a score last week, but it's hard to trust him against the Seahawks.

    1. 21
    2. Brandon Bostick
    3. Brandon
      Bostick
      TE
    4. REC YDS45
    5. REC TD0

    Bostick caught three passes for 42 yards and a score last week and could be a sneaky play if you're needy at the tight end position.

    1. 22
    2. Martellus Bennett
    3. Martellus
      Bennett
      TE
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    The Ravens allow the 12th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends, and that helps to make Bennett a solid TE1 option this week.

    1. 23
    2. Brandon Myers
    3. Brandon
      Myers
      TE
    4. REC YDS36
    5. REC TD0

    After not even getting a target last week, Myers should be completely written off for the rest of the year.

    1. 24
    2. Brandon Pettigrew
    3. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    4. REC YDS32
    5. REC TD0

    Pettigrew had five catches for 70 yards against the Bears. Consider him a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. 25
    2. Jeff Cumberland
    3. Jeff
      Cumberland
      TE
    4. REC YDS31
    5. REC TD0

    Cumberland should be back from the concussion that kept him out of the Jets' last game, but you should not consider starting him.

    1. 26
    2. Anthony Fasano
    3. Anthony
      Fasano
      TE
    4. REC YDS30
    5. REC TD0

    Fasano is not of any concern to the fantasy community.

    1. 27
    2. Brent Celek
    3. Brent
      Celek
      TE
    4. REC YDS24
    5. REC TD0

    Celek is not a fantasy option, plain and simple.

    1. 28
    2. Zach Miller
    3. Zach
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS23
    5. REC TD0

    Miller was a no-show last week, and will once again be relegated to no more than a tertiary role with Percy Harvin likely returning this week.
