Please Brandon Pettigrew. Please have at least six catches for 85 yards and preferrably a touchdown so you can lead me to a fantasy championship. What about the rest of the league in the final week of the regular season. Who can you count on? Which teams are going to play their star players all game long? Who will help lead you to the fantasy promised land? Can Jimmy Graham have one more big week for you? Will Rob Gronkowski put an exclamation poiint on his record breaking season? Will Jared Cook continue his late season hot streak and vault himself into fantasy players minds for next season? It certainly has been a quality year for the tight end position, and we give you one last crack at the tight end rankings.
The New England Patriots decided to give the NFL a break for one week, so Rob Gronkowski didn't have a touchdown, but he goes right back to the top of the rankings as the Patriots are still fighting for playoff positioning and are playing the Dolphins. While you have many of the usual suspects near the top of the list, I'm sneaking a few guys up there that you might not expect. Even though T.J. Yates is at quarterback for the Texans I can see him tearing up the Colts Thursday night as Yates only has the arm to hit Daniels over the middle, and Gresham is emerging as a force and could shred the Cardinals linebackers as well. It is Super Bowl week for many of you, and hopefully those that got you here will give you another week of goodies, as many of the top tight ends have pretty good matchups. Which ones will succeed most? It is all here in the tight end rankings.
Week two of the fantasy football playoffs is among us and the tight end position is a very important one going forward. The two-headed monster in New England has led you to the fantasy playoffs, can they now bring you the rest of the way to the championship? What about Jermichael Finley and Vernon Davis? They have been two of the bigger disappointments, but now can they step up when you need them most? Which under the radar guy will surprise you and do well? All of your answers are here in the Week 15 Tight End Rankings.
It is incredible how much the tight end position has grown this season. Teams like the New England Patriots are dropping the fullback entirely and installing two tight end systems. There are four tight ends in the top 20 in the league in receiving yards, and Jimmy Graham is in the top five. Fantasy owners of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are reaping the benefits of the evolution of the tight end. Last week, we also saw the rise of two young tight ends in Dustin Keller and Fred Davis who were expected to have break-out seasons. How far will Davis and Keller rise in these rankings? Will Antonio Gates find the end zone in consecutive games? Will Tony Gonzalez continue to defy his age and score in his eighth game? Can Jason Witten barrel over the Cardinals secondary like he did that Cowboys cheerleader? With the end of the regular season close in fantasy football, make sure to have the best lineup in place by checking the tight end rankings.
The two-headed tight end monster in New England is back in full effect and they are both in the top ten of this week's tight end rankings. We have a new leader in the clubhouse for Week 6 as I think that a certain tight end in the Lone Star State is going to have a big week against a weak New England defense even though I don't expect his team to win that game. The tight end by the Bay is re-establishing himself as one of the best in fantasy football, while a guy in Florida is really seeming like a waste of a roster spot. What can you expect out of your tight end this week? The answers are below in Fantasy Alarm's Week 6 tight end rankings.
You might find the name at the top of this list to be a little strange, but I am really liking what I am seeing from Greg Olsen and I think this is going to be a huge game for him. I also like the fact that Vernon Davis has finally gotten his head out of his rear end and is starting to live up to some of his predraft hype. Jimmy Graham came through for me big time last week, which means that this week might not be so hot. But I am really liking what I see from Dustin Keller as well as Brandon Pettigrew. Who else do I like and not like? You can find it all below in this week's tight end rankings.
It is Jeff Mans' favorite position as that guy knows a thing or two about tight ends on a football field. He is known to check out some guys' butts for hours at a time. Nevertheless, we are finding some stars at the position that we didn't expect to start the season like Rob Gronkowski, Dustin Keller, and Greg Olsen. How will these guys do as we move towards the bye weeks and fantasy owners need to tweak their lineups on a weekly basis? What about Dallas Clark and Marcedes Lewis? Will they ever get it together? How long will Antonio Gates be out and what kind of fantasy value does Randy McMichael have? We have a surprise at the top of this list and you can also find out if Rob Gronkowski will score yet again in the Week 4 Tight End rankings.
This was possibly the best week in the history of tight ends. Not only did some of the top guys in the league have impressive performances, but guys like Jermaine Gresham, Rob Gronkowski, Fred Davis, and Dustin Keller all looked like world beaters in the first game of the season. Which of these guys can keep it going and turn into viable fantasy options through the rest of the season? Which one of the top guys at draft time are going to disappoint you throughout the season? Who is the player who will take the next step to fantasy stardom? Those answers might come over time, but if you need to know who is going to score the big fantasy points this coming week, look no further than this week's tight end rankings!
