Week 17 Fantasy Football Tight End Ranks… & More

At long last, we arrive at the fantasy football Tight End ranks for Week 17. There are too many moving pieces for one article to cover, and so these ranks assume the player is… playing. If you have any specific start / sit questions, hit me up on Twitter @NFLClark!

 

Stream of the Week: Gerald Everett VS Detroit Lions

The Lions are giving up the 2nd most PPR points per game to tight ends over the last 5 weeks, and Everett is on a hot-streak after an abysmal start to the season. The athleticism and versatility that some of us (read: I) got excited about in the pre-season, has finally arrived. At a measly 36% ownership in CBS leagues, Everett is a solid play if you’re scrambling in championship week.

 

DFS Play of the Week: Travis Kelce ($7,200) @ Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have been the worst, fantasy wise, at stopping the tight end over the last 5 weeks of the season. Queue a matchup between two already-explosive offenses who appear to be heating up as we march towards the playoffs. Even at this astronomical price, I’m betting on Kelce to pay off while I bargain shop at wide receiver and running back, taking advantage of the wackadoodle NFL Covid policy.
