2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 13 Tight Ends

With Gronk and Reed set to miss, The Wolf has to swallow back puke and make a very difficult decision...

Week 13 — the definition of Do or Die time. Whether you’re clawing your way into the playoffs, doing your damndest to secure a bye, or intent on spoiling a rival’s season to bring a shred of joy to your abysmal campaign, this will be the last hurrah for many. Make sure your lineup is set and you’re extending your fantasy year with the best rankings around. 

Note – Tears are being shed, as Rob Gronkowski is set for back surgery and will likely miss the rest of the year (and definitely the remaining fantasy season). Bump Martellus Bennett’s stock accordingly.

Jordan Reed, another elite TE option, looks set to miss Week 13 as well. These rankings assume he’s absent.


Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers 

1) Travis Kelce (KC) @ ATL – Ranking “Zeus” (throw up) this high rivals the passing of a kidney stone. Still, Gronk and Reed are out, and Kelce’s been dominating in far more difficult matchups. The current leader in TE targets should only add to his annoyingly impressive 2016 totals in voluminous fashion.

2) Jimmy Graham (SEA) vs. CAR

Tier 2 – High-end TE1s

3) Tyler Eifert (CIN) vs. PHI

4) Kyle Rudolph (MIN) vs. DAL

5) Eric Ebron (DET) @ NO – Last week’s goose egg was infuriating, but you have to forgive him in a dreamboat matchup versus New Orleans

6) Greg Olsen (CAR) @ SEA

7) Martellus Bennett (NE) vs. LA

Tier 3 – Remaining TE1s 

8) CJ Fiedorowicz (HOU) @ GB

9) Antonio Gates (SD vs. TB

10)  Cameron Brate (TB) @ SD

11) Coby Fleener (NO) vs. DET – The matchup is too ripe. Fleener will score against this trash defense.

12) Vernon Davis (WAS) @ ARI

13) Jason Witten (DAL) @ MIN

Tier 4 – Last Potential Starters

14) Vance McDonald (SF) @ CHI – His recent play has earned him a bump from his routine #25 spot

15)  Hunter Henry (SD) vs. TB

16) Jack Doyle (IND) @ NYJ

17) Zach Ertz (PHI) @ CIN

18) Lance Kendricks (LA) @ NE

Tier 5 – Suffocation, No Breathing


19) Jared Cook (GB) vs. HOU

20) Ladarius Green (PIT) vs. NYG

21) Austin Hooper (ATL) vs. KC

22) Charles Clay (BUF) @ OAK

23) Jermaine Gresham (ARI) vs. WAS

24)  Dennis Pitta-ful (BAL) vs. MIA

25) Dwayne Allen (IND) @ NYJ
