Week 12 TE Rankings – player profiles and stat projections will be updated throughout the week

Week 12 — QB Rankings — RB Rankings — WR Rankings — TE Rankings — Defense Rankings — Waiver Wire Pickups — NFL Picks & Predictions

1. Jimmy Graham – NO = NYG —– The best fantasy football TE (Gronkowski is giving him a run for his money though) is back from the bye this week and ready to roll in fantasy football lineups. It would not be surprising if Graham led the Saints in receptions, yards and touchdowns in this game.

2. Rob Gronkowski – NE = @Phi —– Can you say that Gronkowski is maybe a safer receiving option in the Patriots passing attack than teammate Wes Welker right now? Another 50-100 receiving yards is definitely likely, and 1-2 touchdowns seem to always be in reach for this favorite red zone target of Tom Brady’s.

3. Antonio Gates – SD = Den —– With Vincent Jackson the only reason proven threat in the Chargers passing attack, Gates should continue to be his old usual self. 50-100 receiving yards and a red zone TD is always within reach.

4. Jason Witten – Dal = Mia —– Oddly enough, there is a plethora of offensive options in Dallas right now, and none of them are named Miles Austin. Witten is a safe bet to rack up his usual 40-80 receiving yards, with a touchdown and more yards always possible as well.

5. Jermichael Finley – GB = @Det —– Finley was nicked up with an injury in last weeks game, but if there ever was a game for him to bust out with a huge stat line…..this is the game.

6. Brandon Pettigrew – Det = GB —– We all know the ropes by now, the Packers defense will clearly give up their share of receiving yards to the tight end. This week has all the makings of being a huge stat game for Pettigrew.

7. Fred Davis – Was = @Sea

8. Tony Gonzalez – Atl = Min

9. Vernon Davis – SF = @Bal

10. Aaron Hernandez – NE = @Phi

11. Owen Daniels – Hou = @Jac

12. Greg Olsen – Car = @Ind

13. Brent Celek – Phi = NE – 36% —– With Jeremy Maclin injured and DeSean Jackson playing hide and seek in the Eagles offense, Celek is quite possibly the most reliable passing target in the Eagles offense right now. A matchup against a weak Patriots pass defense this week could have Celek racking up half a dozen receptions for anything between 50-100 receiving yards, and a touchdown is always possible.

14. Dustin Keller – NYJ = Buf – 68% —– Keller being listed here has more to do with how awful the Buffalo Bills defense has played in recent weeks. With Shonn Greene and LaDainain Tomlinson dealing with injuries, Mark Sanchez could be the main offensive weapon if the Jets plan on scoring in this game.

15. Jake Ballard – NYG = @NO – 55% —– Facing a high scoring Saints offense, the Giants could easily be throwing the ball a lot in this game, especially if Ahmad Bradshaw is once again out. Ballard should be targeted plenty in this matchup, and a touchdown is always possible.

16. Jermaine Gresham – Cin = Cle – 39% —– One of Andy Dalton’s favorite red zone targets, Gresham is once again a candidate to score a touchdown in this game. And if AJ Green has to miss this game with injury, Gresham’s targets could go up even more.

17. Kellen Winslow – TB = @Ten

18. Ed Dickson – Bal = SF – 30% —– Displaying a solid report with Joe Flacco, Dickson has the potential to rack up 5 receptions for 50-80 receicing yards in this game, and a touchdown is within reach as well against an excellent 49ers run defense.

19. Jacob Tamme – Ind = Car – 1% —– Forget about Reggie Wayne or Pierre Garcon, Tamme will likely be the target of choice for whoever the Colts QB is in this game.

20. Anthony Fasano – Mia = @Dal – 3% —– With Matt Moore playing extremely well right now, Fasano has definitely found his groove in the Dolphins passing attack. In what is becoming the norm in Miami, Fasano is an excellent red zone scoring threat this week against a susceptible Dallas Cowboys linebacking core.

21. Heath Miller – Pit = @KC – 45% —– Definitely a TD threat in this game.

22. Visanthe Shiancoe – Min = @Atl

23. Marcedes Lewis – Jac = Hou

24. Benjamin Watson – Cle = @Cin

25. Tony Scheffler – Det = GB – 3% —– Simply put, the Packers defense struggles at covering tight ends, and Scheffler has proven to be a red zone touchdown threat this season. It would not surprise me to see Scheffler once again hit paydirt in the end zone in this game.

26. Jared Cook – Ten = TB

27. Scott Chandler – Buf = @NYJ

28. Dennis Pitta – Bal = SF

29. Zach Miller – Sea = Was

30. Kevin Boss – Oak = Chi

31. Lance Kendricks – StL = Ari – 7% —– The matchup is very intriguing for Kendricks to haul in some receptions this week.

32. Joel Dreessen – Hou = @Jac

33. Jeremy Shockey – Car = @Ind

34. Todd Heap – Ari = @StL

35. Evan Moore – Cle = @Cin

36. Kyle Rudolph – Min = @Atl

37. James Casey – Hou = @Jac

38. Daniel Fells – Den = @SD

39. Kellen Davis – Chi = @Oak

40. Delanie Walker – SF = @Bal

41. Randy McMichael – SD = Den

42. David Thomas – NO = NYG

43. Martellus Bennett – Dal = Mia

44. Rob Housler – Ari = @StL

45. Julius Thomas – Den = @SD

46. Jeff King – Ari = @StL

47. Michael Hoomanawanui – StL = Ari

48. Travis Beckum – NYG = @NO

49. Virgil Green – Den = @SD
