With an exciting Week 13 in the books, here are the LestersLegends 2012 Week 14 fantasy football tight end rankings.

1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints 

Graham has been quiet the past two games. Look for him to explode back on the scene against the New York Giants.

2. Aaron Hernandez, New England Patriots

Hernandez was heavily involved last week catching eight of 13 targets for 97 yards. Only Welker and Hernandez are reliable in the passing game. Look for plenty of work for Hernandez.

3. Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta Falcons

Gonzo is showing no signs of slowing down. He has seven touchdown and is averaging 64.2 yards per game. Look for success against the Carolina Panthers.

4. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys

Witten doesn’t score, but he continually sees a healthy number of targets. He secures over 70 percent of his looks. He should have another solid game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

5. Brandon Myers, Oakland Raiders

Myers has the fourth most receiving yards (721) from a tight end. He has scored in two of his last three games and has four scores in his past five. The Denver Broncos have allowed nine tight end touchdowns.

6. Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings

Rudolph is an amazing talent. He has eight touchdowns, often in spite of Christian Ponder. He’s scored in three straight, including in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.

7. Heath Miller, Pittsburgh Steelers

Miller has seven touchdowns. He’s averaging 80 yards per game with Charlie Batch so he should be in good shape against the San Diego Chargers even if Ben Roethlisberger can’t go. They have allowed a tight end touchdown in the past two games.

8. Owen Daniels, Houston Texans

It will be all hands on deck against the New England Patriots. Daniels has six touchdowns. The Pats have allowed seven tight end scores.

9. Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers

Olsen is averaging 60.3 yards with three touchdowns in his past four games. He had 89 yards and a score in the first meeting with Atlanta.

10. Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals 

Gresham has scored in three of the past four games. The Cowboys have allowed six tight end touchdowns.
