It’s Week 13 in fantasy football land and to help you set your best lineup, here are my tight end rankings for the week!
Gronkowski is back and so is Travis Kelce as we move approach the fantasy playoffs. Dan Arnold is finished for the season, and Logan Thomas’ return for the Washingtonian Footballists wasn’t exactly all fireworks. Have a TE question I don’t get to with my ranks? Hit me up on Twitter @NFLClark!
Rob Gronkowski @ Atlanta Falcons
The glorious return of Rob Gronkowski was, glorious. The window to get Gronk in your lineups is once again wide open as, when Gronk plays, he is productive.
Gronk is the TE2 in PPR points per game behind only Travis Kelce. Gronkowski’s 15.1 PPR points per game makes him about the WR18ish and RB15ish in PPR, so even if you were able to get good TE production elsewhere with Gronk out, you should probably be playing Gronk as your Flex option.
Amongst tight ends, Rob Gronkowski will be just a hair behind Travis Kelce every week where they both play.
Gerald Everett vs San Francisco 49ers
Everett has been the PPR TE7 in points pre game for the last 3 weeks. As Russell Wilson settles back in under center, Everett is having the season that a few optimists like myself predicted. Everett is largely available on the waiver wire, and he’s put together a few good games in a row here. We’re still in the buy-low window for this athletic marvel who is admittedly stuck under offense killer Pete Carrol.
C.J. Uzomah vs Los Angeles Chargers
Uzomah has posted two gigantic games, games over 24 PPR points, and almost nothing else of fantasy note this season. The Bengals host the Chargers on Sunday, and the Chargers have been the 2nd-most generous defense to opposing tight ends. After the Bengals offensive explosion against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12, might we see another 25+ point game from Uzomah?
I like Uzomah as a desperation play and have him ranked that way, but boy the top-end of his range of outcomes is on part with any TE in the league.
