So which Tight Ends are most likely to take you over the top? Let’s take a look at the top 5 Fantasy Tight End plays for Week 13 of the NFL season.
1. Greg Olsen, Panthers
With the injury to Rob Gronkowki the most reliable Tight End in the game steps up into the #1 spot. Olsen is the unquestioned #1 receiving option in a good offense facing a bad New Orleans defense.
To add to his intrigue this week – Olsen had 134 yards and two TDs in the first meeting between the teams this year. I like Olsen to light it up again and approach 100 yards receiving with a TD.
2. Delanie Walker, Titans
Walker, like Olsen is the unquestioned #1 option in his team’s offense. I think the Titans score some points this week against a weak Jacksonville team. The Titans weren’t great the last time they faced Jacksonville but Walker had 109 yards on 8 catches in that meeting. Delanie is quickly becoming one of the best TE draftees in the league – he should have a good game Sunday.
3. Travis Kelce, Chiefs
The terrific Travis Kelce gets the Raiders this week – a team that has been absolutely brutal against opposing Tight Ends this year. Kelce was very good last week despite a balky groin and with some added attention on a resurgent Jeremy Maclin, he may find a bit more room. Kelce should get his usual 7 targets per game and could easily parlay them into 60-80 yards and a TD.
4. Jordan Reed, Redskins
Sticking with the theme of primary receivers – Reed is the #1 option in a Redskins offense that could have some success against Dallas this week. Reed has scored four TDs in his last three games and is in a good position to keep that roll going Sunday. I like Reed to get his usual 60-80 yards with a TD – if the First Place (I can’t believe it!!!) Redskins hope to stay atop they are going to have to get to Reed early and often.
5. Tyler Eifert, Bengals
There is still a chance that Eifert doesn’t play – he didn’t practice Wednesday. I’m assuming he’s good to go Sunday against a pretty weak Cleveland Browns team.
He had 3 TDs on 53 yards receiving the first time these teams met – if he was fully healthy he’s be a top 2 play. Unfortunately, we’ll have to see about his availability but for now Eifert looks like a lock for good yardage and score or two.
