There is an interesting quandary this week with Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 13 tight end rankings, right as we position ourselves for playoff seeding.
Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Jason Witten, Tony Gonzalez and Julius Thomas are the top-five ranked at the position this week, and each of them are facing a defense in the top half of the league against tight ends.
Witten has the best matchup of the top five, going against an Oakland team ranked 14th against the position this season. Graham follows against a Seattle team ranked 11th.
Jordan Cameron, ranked eighth this week, has the best chance — so say the numbers. He takes on a Jacksonville team ranked 31st against tight ends, having allowed six catches, 68 yards and nearly a touchdown per game to the position.
Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any website can give you.
