Tight End Rankings Week 14

Jared Cook has caught a touchdown pass in three straight games

It's Week 14, which for most fantasy leagues means it's the first week of the playoffs. As exciting as that is (for those fantasy owners that made it to their playoffs), one thing has not changed since the early part of the season – the tight end position is still a complete disaster.


We can now add Greg Olsen to the list of disappointments at the position for one reason or another. For most fantasy owners, choosing which tight end to start each week has been a daunting task, even for those who used an early draft pick on Rob Gronkowski.


So in a week where it's win or go home it's more important than ever to find a tight end that can at least get you some points. If you find one that can get you 10 or more than chances are you have a really good chance of moving on. But only one team can own Travis Kelce or Zach Ertz. So who does that leave? It could be Jaylen Samuels, who is an RB/TE in Yahoo! leagues and should be in line for more touches with James Conner out this week with an ankle injury.
