It’s Week 14, which means the fantasy playoffs are here, and at the tight end position, Rob Gronkowski owners may be scrambling a bit this week. With no Gronk to count on in a win-or-else situation, who can you trust?
While Gronk isn’t playing, the top part of the Week 14 tight end rankings is still pretty stacked with Travis Kecle, Jimmy Graham, Evan Engram, Delanie Walker and Zach Ertz leading the way. Kelce had two touchdown catches last week while Graham has found the end zone in seven of his last eight games. And Engram continues to show why he’s the only viable fantasy option on the Giants.
Lower down the rankings, where Gronk owners probably need to look, you find guys like Charles Clay, Ricky Seals-Jones, Vernon Davis and Tyler Kroft. Are you willing to put your team’s title chances into any of their hands? What about Austin Hooper or David Njoku or perhaps even Gronk’s replacement, Dwayne Allen? It’s just one position, but every spot in the lineup is critical at this point. Choose wisely.
