Let’s keep our Week 11 rankings rolling with a look at the best tight ends for the coming week. Who has the best matchup? Who has been struggling? Let’s take a look:
- Rob Gronkowski – New England Patriots – vs. Kansas City
- Antonio Gates – San Diego Chargers – at Chicago
- Jermichael Finley – Green Bay Packers – vs. Tampa Bay
- Jason Witten – Dallas Cowboys – at Washington
- Aaron Hernandez – New England Patriots – vs. Kansas City
- Fred Davis – Washington Redskins – vs. Dallas
- Tony Gonzalez – Atlanta Falcons – vs. Tennessee
- Vernon Davis – San Francisco 49ers – vs. Arizona
- Kellen Winslow – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – at Green Bay
- Benjamin Watson – Cleveland Browns – vs. Jacksonville
- Jake Ballard – New York Giants – vs. Philadelphia
- Greg Olsen – Carolina Panthers – at Detroit
- Brandon Pettigrew – Detroit Lions – vs. Carolina
- Brent Celek – Philadelphia Eagles – at New York Giants
- Dustin Keller – New York Jets – at Denver
- Jared Cook – Tennessee Titans – at Atlanta
- Scott Chandler – Buffalo Bills – at Miami
- Anthony Fasano – Miami Dolphins – vs. Buffalo
- Visanthe Shiancoe – Minnesota Vikings – vs. Oakland
- Delanie Walker – San Francisco 49ers – vs. Arizona
- Rob Gronkowski has caught at least 7 passes in each of the past four games. He has at least 90 yards in each of the past three (and back-to-back 100 yard days). In his past three games he has 3 TD receptions. It’s hard to argue against him at the top of these rankings, isn’t it?
- At least Jason Witten has started to find the end zone, right? He’s under 50 yards in four of his past five games, but has 3 TD over that span (he had 1 TD in the first four games despite posting over 90 yards three times). The upside is there to continue viewing him among the best options in the game.
- According to NFL.com, the Dallas Cowboys are allowing the third most points per game to opposing tight ends (the Bears are allowing the most). Fred Davis is looking like a great play for the coming week.
- Given all of the injuries to the Eagles, could Brent Celek continue to produce? He has at least 50 yards in each of his past three games and should be considered a viable option in all formats.
- Dustin Keller hasn’t scored since Week 2 and hasn’t had more than 64 yards or 4 receptions since Week 3. It’s just impossible to trust him as a TE1 right now.
