Week 15 TE Player Rankings

Brought to you by

Rankings for QBs, RBs and WRs


1. Jason Witten (vs Was)

Witten is a stud tight end and Kitna is letting the world know it week by week.  If Jason wasn’t the leader in receptions for TEs, second in targets, tied for fourth in TDs and second in overall fantasy points, I’d mark him below Tamme this week.  However, he is and he will put up the stats this weekend to justify his ranking.


2. Jacob Tamme (vs Jax)

Tamme will get his catches and targets this game no matter what, so with the Jags being the eighth worst defense in defending the tight end, you shouldn’t have any worries due to his lack of production the last couple of weeks.


3. Owen Daniels (@ Ten)

Owen dropped his fair share of balls and didn't look quite in sync during his return last Monday night, but Schaub DID target him 11 times with Owen putting up 91 yards on five catches in the process.  Looks like the Texans are committed to him over Joel Dreessen, too, as Dreessen was targeted just three times and came away with zero catches in the game.


4. Kevin Boss (vs Phi)

The Eagles give up the second most fantasy points in the league to opposing tight ends, so even though Boss is nothing special, he might be worth a shot if you’re looking at a bummer of a TE situation this weekend.


5. Marcedes Lewis (@ Ind)

 Again, I have to say it, but Lewis is huge (6’6”, 275 pounds)!  He also happens to be one of the more fluid tight ends in the league, so in a depleted database of tight ends to choose from, Marcedes might be your best option against a Colts D that has been allowing TEs to roam free the past few weeks.
