Tight End Rankings Week 12-Top 15 to Start for Fantasy Football

Jimmy Graham was out earlier this season due to injury, but he’ll be the premier tight end in the absence of Rob Gronkowski and leads our top 15 tight ends for week 12. Photo by Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Rob Gronkowski owners haven’t had to check this post in weeks assuming their starter would be at or near the top of this list. Unfortunately, Gronk got hurt last week leaving many searching for a new tight end. Fortunately, there’s options out there as you’ll see below.

We apologize for these rankings being later than normal due to site downtime, but Happy Thanksgiving: here’s our top 15 tight ends for the coming week:
