Week 14 DFS Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings – Fan Duel
Its Fantasy Football playoff time – a time when the slightest lineup snafu may end your Fantasy season. Tight Ends have been a bit of a mystery all season long and without Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, the pool seems pretty shallow. Have no fear – there are still a number of good options available to you in Week 14.
So which Tight Ends can we trust? Let’s break it down in the top 5 Tight End plays for Week 14 of the NFL season.
1. Greg Olsen, Panthers
Olsen is the #1 Tight End option again this week – as reliable and as productive as any Tight End in the game right now. He enters off a terrific effort against New Orleans – nine catches for 129 yards but he failed to score surprisingly. Against a brutal Atlanta defense I think he gets that score to go along with healthy yardage and a good amount of catches. Eight grabs for 80-100 yards and a TD is what I see for Olsen this week – anything less would be a disappointment.
2. Tyler Eifert, Bengals
It will be a shootout on Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers pay visit. Eifert is a question mark to play this week again but I am assuming he gets back on the field against a team that he was shockingly held down against in the first meeting – just four catches for 39 yards. Eifert has 12 TDs on the year so far and is a good bet to add to that total this week. 6 catches for around 80 yards and a TD, maybe two seems about right!
3.Delanie Walker, Titans
How good has Delanie Walker been? He has elevated to TE1 status and enters off a huge Week 13 effort. He has scored just twice in the last 10 games but that HAS to change sooner than later. He has been good for about 80 yards per game the last 6 weeks – my bet is on him getting there this week against a tough Jets defense. I also like him to add a score along the way. Walker is a consistent Fantasy producer – another 80-90 yards on 6-8 catches with a score is where I see him landing.
4. Travis Kelce, Chiefs
The Chiefs get the San Diego Chargers this week – one of the worst defenses in the league versus opposing Tight Ends. With Alex Smith hitting a different gear and with Jeremy Maclin suddenly commanding some extra attention, Kelce is in a good position to bounce back from an ugly effort against the Raiders. He is still one of the most talented Tight Ends in the game and despite some consistency issues is a definite top 5 TE option this week. 5 catches for 60 yards and a TDS is very realistic.
5. Julius Thomas, Jaguars
Thomas has been very good since returning from injury and enters this week having scored in three straight games. He was very good in Jacksonville’s last home game – nine catches for 116 yards. Blake Bortles is winging the ball all over the park right now – you have to think that Thomas is good for some of the 300+ yards Bortles is bound to have against a pretty bad Indianapolis defense. I like Thomas to catch 6 balls for 60 yards and to extend his scoring streak to four games.
