Fantasy Football 2014 Tight End Rankings: Week 12

Rob Gronkowski fared better than Jimmy Graham last Sunday, so for now the pecking order will remain the same as it relates to Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 12. Gronk caught a touchdown pass for the third straight game in the Patriots win over the Colts, while Graham was held to just three catches and 29 yards in the Saints’ home loss to the Bengals. At least both of these big targets are healthy, something that can’t be said of Julius Thomas. The NFL’s leader in touchdown catches (12), Thomas left last week’s loss in St. Louis early because of an ankle injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday, but the Broncos are holding out hope he will be able to go on Sunday against the Dolphins. Based on his No. 4 ranking below, we are optimistic about his chances of playing, although it’s pretty much a given he will be at less than 100 percent. Be sure to have a replacement ready to go in case Thomas isn’t able to suit up.

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 Web site can give you.
