Week 13 Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings (PPR): Philadelphia’s Tight Ends strike again

Last week, the Eagles’ tight ends had another outstanding week of fantasy football. Dallas Goedert led all fantasy scoring for tight ends with a 7-75-1 line for 20.5 fantasy points. His partner, Richard Rodgers, caught a one-handed tip from a hail mary pass on Monday night football against the Seahawks to boost his fantasy points to 14.3 for a 6th place finish on the standings. Next week, we will be without Rob Gronkowski and Cameron Brate due to the Buccaneers’ bye week. Check out the tight end rankings for week 13 below.

Tier One Tight Ends

Travis Kelce did not lead tight end rankings for the first time since week seven this week. However, he still put up an 8-82 line for 16.2 points to land him fifth in the tight end standings for fantasy football. Kelce pulled out a solid outing in fantasy while his partner, Tyreek Hill, had a historical day with 57.9 fantasy points. Kelce is still very involved in their offense, and he and the Chiefs will take on the Denver Broncos next week in a divisional matchup.

Darren Waller had a tough week, only putting up 6.3 fantasy points in their blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons. There was not much anyone on the Raiders’ offense could do last week. Renfrow led the team in receiving yards with just over 73 yards. But, there were no touchdowns scored from the Raiders, and just two field goals. Waller has maintained a pattern of having a double-digit point week to a low week like we saw last week for the last six weeks. If that is any indication of how next week will go, keep your hopes high on Waller.

Mark Andrews is inactive for the Ravens’ game against the Steelers on Wednesday, due to his positive test for COVID-19 over the weekend. However, before then Andrews had two games both over 13 points over the last two weeks. When he returns, he will play against the Dallas Cowboys, who have allowed the 10th most amount of fantasy points to tight ends this season. Last week they allowed an early touchdown to Logan Thomas.

T.J Hockenson has not scored a touchdown since week 9 this season, but, the name of the game for Hockenson has been consistent. He has only had three games under 10 points, two of which he scored 9.3 and 9.7. Last week, even without a touchdown he landed seventh on the tight end standings with 13.9 fantasy points against the Houston Texans. Next week, Hockenson will take on the Chicago Bears, who have allowed the sixth-most points to tight ends this season. The last time Hockenson played the Bears in week one, he put up one of his five touchdowns and put up 16.6 fantasy points.

Robert Tonyan has turned around his game for the Packers, scoring a touchdown in each of their last two games. He has averaged around 16.5 fantasy points in the last two weeks, adding to his 11.3 point average this season. Last week, he had a long 39-yard touchdown against the Chicago Bears. Next week, Tonyan will go up against the Philadelphia Eagles, who have allowed the fourteenth most points to tight ends this season.

Bounce Back

Jimmy Graham has not had a game over 10 points since week nine of the season when the Bears played against Tennessee. He only saw three catches last week against the Green Bay Packers, his former team. Before that, against Minnesota, he failed to catch one ball. Graham has been averaging just under 10 points this season and could see a bounce-back week soon, especially with Mitchell Trubisky in. Graham will take on the Detroit Lions next week at home.

Noah Fant was left hopeless last week without any of his quarterbacks in the game. He was left with one reception for 13 yards against the New Orleans Saints for 2.3 fantasy points. Noah Fant has not seen a touchdown since week two but has still been averaging just under 10 points per game. Next week, Drew Lock will return to the Broncos, as he has been cleared from COVID protocol. They will take on the Kansas City Chiefs, who are dead middle for allowed points to tight ends.

Tough Matchup

Logan Thomas had a great week last week for Washington in their Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys. He scored a touchdown before halftime and put up 13.42 fantasy points for the week. However, next week Washington will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have allowed the least amount of points to tight ends this season. They have allowed an average of just four points per game to tight ends this season. He may see another week under 10 points.

Hunter Henry has been on a hot streak with three straight weeks over 13 fantasy points per game. But, next week the Chargers will take on the New England Patriots, who have allowed the fifth least amount of fantasy points to tight ends this season. Last week, the New England defense left the Cardinal’s tight ends outside of the top-30 of fantasy standings. He should maintain in the top ten, but may not exceed his average of 10.6 points.

Week 13 Streamers

Trey Burton has had two straight weeks for the Colts with 10+ points and has been in the endzone in both of their last two games. Burton has started to amass more targets for the Colts, and next week the Colts will play against the Houston Texans, who have allowed the 15th most amount of fantasy points to tight ends on the year. Burton is only owned in 6% of ESPN fantasy leagues and would be worth the pick up for next week.

Richard Rodgers has had three straight weeks with over 10 points and is ranked 19th in the past four weeks. Last week, he had a spectacular one-handed catch in the endzone off of a tipped hail mary pass from Wentz late in the Monday night game. Rodgers is only owned in 6.5% of ESPN leagues at the moment. But, he is a riskier option now that Zach Ertz is looking to return from injured reserve soon.

I have played football, baseball, hockey, golf, and basketball separately when I was young. Now I run cross country and track for DePaul University. My favorite part about sport is the mental strength. I am a big fan of all of the Chicago sports teams that don’t end in “Cubs.”
