Fantasy Football 2013 Tight End Rankings: Week 17

JimmyGraham_fantasy_TE_15.jpg

Jimmy Graham, the game’s top tight end, will be trying to help the Saints keep pace for an NFC South title Sunday against a Tampa Bay team he destroyed near the beginning of the season. His 10 catches for 179 yards on 16 targets were all season highs in Week 2. He also scored a TD against the Buccaneers, who have held TEs to six scores this season.

Vernon Davis had scored a touchdown in five straight games entering Monday night, and only been held off the scoreboard in three games. He is killing it in TD-only leagues and PPR leagues, and gets an Arizona team had eight catches, 180 yards and two scores on 11 targets — all season highs — in their Week 6 meeting.

Green Bay’s Andrew Quarless should be a decent sleeper against a Chicago team that has allowed a TD to the position in three of the last five games, and 5.6 catches per game to tight ends. Quarless had a dud last week, but had back-to-back 15.6-point games the two weeks prior.
