Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has enjoyed great success against AFC West clubs this season, averaging five catches, 75 yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game.
Here are my top 30 tight ends for Week 15 (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) and Rob Gronkowski (forearm) shall remain off the board for now...although I'm selfishly hoping that Gronk suits up against the Niners.

1. Jermichael Finley has been an all-world performer in his last three trips to Chicago's Soldier Field, with per-outing averages of seven catches, 90 yards and one touchdown.
2. Since 2008, Owen Daniels currently has a five-game streak of only one catch against the rival Colts. Ouch!
3. Against the AFC West this season (two games), Greg Olsen has robust averages of five catches, 75 yards and 1.5 TDs.
4. The Cardinals may be stuck in an untenable situation at quarterback (Ryan Lindley, John Skelton), but Rob Housler has posted respectable numbers of late. In his last four games, Housler has 24 catches, 36 targets and 188 yards.
