Tight ends continue to be extremely valuable in fantasy football as more and more teams utilize their big targets in the red zone and create mismatches while using their speed to stretch defenses down the middle or through the seams. There’s new tight ends seemingly emerging each week as options if you need a pick-up at the position.
With Rob Gronkowski still sidelined it would seem that the top two tight ends for fantasy purposes will get their game over with early this week as Thursday Night Football features Jimmy Graham and the Saints against Tony Gonzalez and the Falcons. Here’s the rest of our top 15 for week 13:
