Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Rob Gronkowski
    3. Rob
      Gronkowski
      TE
    4. REC YDS96
    5. REC TD2

    Gronk should have a very strong game against a Denver defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 2
    2. Jimmy Graham
    3. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS114
    5. REC TD1

    Graham caught six passes for just 41 yards last week. Expect him to atone for that this week.

    1. 3
    2. Jordan Cameron
    3. Jordan
      Cameron
      TE
    4. REC YDS88
    5. REC TD1

    Cameron caught six passes for 29 yards last week. Start him as usual, despite the fact that his production has really slowed.

    1. 4
    2. Coby Fleener
    3. Coby
      Fleener
      TE
    4. REC YDS84
    5. REC TD1

    Fleener had eight catches for 107 yards last week. Get him in there against an Arizona defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 5
    2. Jason Witten
    3. Jason
      Witten
      TE
    4. REC YDS82
    5. REC TD1

    The Giants are matchup-neutral for a tight end. Start Witten as normal.

    1. 6
    2. Vernon Davis
    3. Vernon
      Davis
      TE
    4. REC YDS74
    5. REC TD1

    Davis had four catches for 33 yards and a touchdown last week. Start him as usual on Monday night.

    1. 7
    2. Delanie Walker
    3. Delanie
      Walker
      TE
    4. REC YDS70
    5. REC TD1

    Walker had another big day last week, catching 10 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. Get him active against an Oakland defense allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 8
    2. Garrett Graham
    3. Garrett
      Graham
      TE
    4. REC YDS68
    5. REC TD1

    Graham had a monster game against the Cardinals, catching seven passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. He's a TE1 against a Jacksonville team allowing the the second-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 9
    2. Greg Olsen
    3. Greg
      Olsen
      TE
    4. REC YDS68
    5. REC TD1

    Olsen had 52 yards and a score last week, and should be universally started against a Miami team that allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 10
    2. Tony Gonzalez
    3. Tony
      Gonzalez
      TE
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD1

    Gonzalez caught seven of nine targets for 63 yards last week. If you own him you're probably starting him, but I dont have much confidence in his fantasy prospects.

    1. 11
    2. Julius Thomas
    3. Julius
      Thomas
      TE
    4. REC YDS60
    5. REC TD1

    Thomas practiced Friday, though his status remains up in the air. If you plan on starting him, you need to have Joel Dreessen ready.

    1. 12
    2. Heath Miller
    3. Heath
      Miller
      TE
    4. REC YDS55
    5. REC TD1

    Miller had eight catches for 67 yards last week and can be thought of as a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. 13
    2. Charles Clay
    3. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    4. REC YDS53
    5. REC TD1

    Clay had six catches for 90 yards and a score last week. He's a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. 14
    2. Jordan Reed
    3. Jordan
      Reed
      TE
    4. REC YDS64
    5. REC TD0

    Reed got just one target last week before leaving in the third quarter with a concussion. The Niners allow the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. 15
    2. Dallas Clark
    3. Dallas
      Clark
      TE
    4. REC YDS63
    5. REC TD0

    Clark caught two passes for 31 yards last week and is not an option in fantasy leagues.

    1. 16
    2. Jared Cook
    3. Jared
      Cook
      TE
    4. REC YDS48
    5. REC TD0

    Thanks to all the injuries in the linebacker corps, the Bears have allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Consider Cook a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. 17
    2. Antonio Gates
    3. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    4. REC YDS48
    5. REC TD0

    Gates had four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown last week. Even against the Kansas City defense, you should start him as usual.

    1. 18
    2. Brandon Pettigrew
    3. Brandon
      Pettigrew
      TE
    4. REC YDS45
    5. REC TD0

    Pettigrew caught three of his five targets for 37 yards last week. His inconsistency makes him too untrustworthy for fantasy owners.

    1. 19
    2. Brandon Bostick
    3. Brandon
      Bostick
      TE
    4. REC YDS43
    5. REC TD0

    Bostick got just one target last week and should not be considered in fantasy leagues.

    1. 20
    2. Tim Wright
    3. Tim
      Wright
      TE
    4. REC YDS43
    5. REC TD0

    Wright got just two targets last week, giving him three in the last two weeks combined. He shoudn't be on your radar at this point.

    1. 21
    2. John Carlson
    3. John
      Carlson
      TE
    4. REC YDS42
    5. REC TD0

    Carlson led the Vikings in receiving again last week, catching five passes for 69 yards. Consider him a low-end TE1.

    1. 22
    2. Martellus Bennett
    3. Martellus
      Bennett
      TE
    4. REC YDS36
    5. REC TD0

    The Rams have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends. You should be able to do better than Bennett this week.

    1. 23
    2. Rob Housler
    3. Rob
      Housler
      TE
    4. REC YDS35
    5. REC TD0

    Housler had six catches for 70 yards last week, thought that likely had something to do with the Jaguars defense.

    1. 24
    2. Jeff Cumberland
    3. Jeff
      Cumberland
      TE
    4. REC YDS27
    5. REC TD0

    Cumberland salvaged his day with a touchdown, but he had just four targets. He's not an option in fantasy leagues.

    1. 25
    2. Anthony Fasano
    3. Anthony
      Fasano
      TE
    4. REC YDS19
    5. REC TD0

    Fasano had four catches for 37 yards and a touchdown last week. It's still hard to consider him a TE1, though, with the way this team throws the ball.

    1. 26
    2. Brandon Myers
    3. Brandon
      Myers
      TE
    4. REC YDS19
    5. REC TD0

    Myers had three catches for 32 yards last week, but still should not be anywhere near your radar.
