Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Tight End Rankings Week 16

Greg Olsen

Greg Olsen

While the Atlanta defense has been better in the second half of the season, they still are among the most generous towards fantasy tight ends. Greg Olsen has put together two solid games in a row, finishing with more than 80 receiving yards in each game, something he hadn’t done since Week 6. While it has been a bit of a rough stretch for Olsen owners, and he is dealing with a sore elbow, he should do his part in Week 16.

Jordan Reed owners, however, should be a little nervous about their guy. He keeps trying to play through the shoulder injury, and he keeps struggling (or gets himself disqualified from games). He's dropped out of the top 10 this week, and even then his No. 11 ranking may be too high. He faces Chicago on Sunday, and the Bears have actually done a decent job against the tight end this season. Between the matchup and his lingering injury, he's a risky TE2 with everything on the line this week.
