Tight End Rankings Week 12

Zach Ertz: Tight End Rankings Week 12

Jack Doyle: Tight End Rankings Week 9

For the first time since Week 4, there are no teams on bye this week, which should bring a smile to most fantasy owners’ faces. That means you will finally have a full fantasy football roster to play with (even though it might not look the same as it did in Week 4 thanks to injuries).

Even with a full complement of players, choosing which tight end to start for Week 12 can be tricky, especially due to the fact that there have been so few reliable, week in, week out options. If you have been using fringe guys like Tyler Kroft, Jack Doyle or even Eric Ebron should you continue to do so this week? And what about guys who have disappointed on more than one occasion like Hunter Henry or Cameron Brate? Where do they fall in this week’s pecking order?
