Here are the Lester’s Legends fantasy football 2012 tight end rankings for the Wild Card Round.

1. Jermichael Finley, Green Bay Packers

Finley finished strong, averaging 56.6 yards in his past six games. He averaged 66 yards in two games against the Minnesota Vikings. He is averaging 68 yards with two touchdowns in five career games against the Vikes.

2. Dennis Pitta, Baltimore Ravens

Pitta scored five touchdowns during Weeks 10-16. He averaged 75.7 yards and a touchdown during Weeks 14-16.

3. Jermaine Gresham, Cincinnati Bengals

Gresham’s 737 yards were the most among the tight ends playing in the Wild Card Round.

4. Owen Daniels, Houston Texans

Daniels struggled down the stretch, but finished with the second most yards (716) of the Wild Card tight ends.

5. Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings

Rudolph’s nine touchdowns are the most among the Wild Card tight ends. He had just 20 yards in Week 17 against the Packers, but had 55 yards and a score in the first meeting.

6. Zach Miller, Seattle Seahawks

Miller averaged 22 yards with two touchdowns in his last four games. He’s a decent option against a weak Redskins secondary.

7. Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts

Allen and Coby Fleener give the Colts two solid tight ends. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough for either to be reliable fantasy options.

8. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts

Fleener scored last week, giving him two touchdowns in the past five game. He hasn’t had multiple receptions since Week 8.

9. Logan Paulsen, Washington Redskins

Paulsen had just two receptions for 14 yards in the last two games of the year. He’s not a quality option.
