Tight End Rankings Week 12

Jordan Reed is coming off of his best game of the season and has been a top-10 fantasy option over the past four weeks

It’s Week 12 of the fantasy football season and yes, you still have to start a tight end this week.


With Travis Kelce on bye this week (as well as the Rams' combination of Gerald Everett/Tyler Higbee), that means there is room at the top of the rankings.


You won’t believe who is ranked ahead of Rob Gronkowski this week and no, it’s not a typo. Also, what about Cameron Brate? He should be in line for more targets with O.J. Howard going on injured reserve? Should you take a chance on him if he's available  in your league?
