Fantasy Football 2015 Tight End Rankings: Week 14

Delanie Walker leads all tight ends in receptions with 67 this season

The big question fantasy owners want to know this week is whether or not Rob Gronkowski will play. If he does, he’s obviously a must-start, even though he probably won’t be 100 percent. But what about guys like Delanie Walker and Antonio Gates? Where do they rank this week?

 

If Gronk can't go, can you trust his replacement, Scott Chandler? He did catch four passes (on 7 targets) for 61 yards and a TD last week. Another injury situation to keep an eye on is Tyler Eifert. He leads the NFL with 12 TD catches, but he missed last week because of a neck injury. Also Zach Miller could be in for more targets with the Bears now that Martellus Bennett (rib) has been placed on injured reserve.

 

Don't forget about Richard Rodgers, who led all tight ends in fantasy scoring last week with his eight catches for 146 yards. Of course the biggest grab was the 61-yard Hail Mary he hauled in to help the Packers beat the Lions on the last play of the game. Rodgers has six TDs on the season, but he's been inconsistent. Can he make it two great games in a row?
