Here we are about to enter Week 12 of the NFL and fantasy season, which means no more byes to work around! The availability of players on all 32 teams (depending on health and other factors) helps deepen what has been an inconsistent tight end pool.
With the playing field leveled, so to speak, the dust should settle and the best of the best should finally emerge at tight end. While the usual suspects (Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Tyler Eifert, Travis Kelce, etc.) should remain among the top choices, this could be the time some less heralded names emerge. It also could mean more a return to normalcy for guys like Gary Barndige now that the Browns have turned back to Josh McCown as their starting quarterback.
So which tight end will finish at the top this week? Here is one man's opinion:
at DAL (Thurs.)
vs. BAL (Mon.)
at CLE (Mon.)
at DET (Thurs.)
vs. CAR (Mon.)
vs. PHI (Thurs.)
vs. CHI (Thurs.)
at GB (Thurs.)
