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

1. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints

Jimmy Graham averaged 75.9 yards and a touchdown per game. He’s the undisputed top tight end in the game and is going up against the league’s worst pass defense in terms of yards allowed. The Philadelphia Eagles allowed 290 passing yards per game.

2. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers

Vernon Davis averaged 56.7 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game. He scored in each of his final six games. He’ll look to extend that streak against the Green Bay Packers. The Pack allowed 247.3 yards and 1.9 touchdowns per game through the air. Davis had 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the first game against Green Bay. In his past five playoff games, he’s averaging 109.2 yards and a touchdown.

3. Antonio Gates, San Diego Chargers

Antonio Gates averaged 54.5 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He’s a clear step down from the top two, but he’s the best of the rest. Gates takes on the Cincinnati Bengals.

4. Brent Celek, Philadelphia Eagles

Brent Celek averaged 31.4 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. In his final five games, he averaged 42.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns. Celek takes on the New Orleans Saints.

5. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts

Coby Fleener averaged 38 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. He’s a little hit-or-miss, but he had seven games with at least 50 yards and/or a touchdown. Fleener faces the Kansas City Chiefs.

6. Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles

Zach Ertz averaged 29.3 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. In his final six games, he averaged 44.7 yards and 0.7 touchdowns.

7. Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers

Andrew Quarless averaged 45.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his final four games. He’s a low-end play against the San Francisco 49ers.
