Here are my top 30 tight ends for Week 14 (points-per-reception leagues).

This countdown identifies the weekend's best bets for catches, total yards, touchdowns and receiving targets—a stat that must always factor into lineup strategies with receivers, tight ends and running backs.

On the injury front, Dustin Keller (ankle) shall remain off the board for now.

Quick Hitters

1. Tony Gonzalez's No. 3 ranking is based more on reputation than production this week. In his last seven games against the Panthers, Gonzalez (73 catches, 770 yards, seven TDs) has middling averages of 5.4 catches, 54 yards and 0.4 touchdowns (to be fair, Gonzo has five road scores in 2012).

2. Dallas Clark could be a low-key difference-maker during the fantasy playoffs. Since Week 11, he has racked up either 60 yards or one touchdown all three times.

3. I have a good news/bad news proposition with Jason Witten:

The good: Through 12 games, he has collected eight or more targets 10 times.

The bad: Witten has only one touchdown in his last 16 games.
