All season it’s been the Rob Gronkowski and Jimmy Graham show atop our tight end rankings. When Graham was injured, Gronk had the number one spot on lockdown. Shortly after Graham got back to full speed, Gronk broke his arm and left Graham alone atop the weekly rankings. This week though, there’s a new sheriff in town and fittingly, he’s a Cowboy.

Here’s our top 15 tight ends for week 16

1 Jason Witten Dal NO 1.5 2 1
2 Aaron Hernandez NE at Jac 2.5 1 4
3 Tony Gonzalez Atl at Det 3.0 3 3
4 Jimmy Graham NO at Dal 3.5 5 2
5 Heath Miller  Pit Cin 4.5 4 5
6 Dennis Pitta Bal NYG 7.0 6 8
Owen Daniels Hou Min 7.0 7 7
Greg Olsen Car Oak 7.0 8 6
9 Martellus Bennett NYG at Bal 10.5 10 11
10 Antonio Gates SD at NYJ 10.5 11 10
11 Brandon Myers Oak at Car 12.0 9 15
12 Jermaine Gresham Cin at Pit 12.5 12 13
13 Kyle Rudolph Min at Hou 13.0 14 12
14 Tony Scheffler Det Atl 14.5 NR 9
15 Jermichael Finley GB Ten 16.5 13 NR

This week’s rankings from Jeffrey Littrell (JL) and me (ZT) were combined into our composite rankings. Follow either one of our rankings or the composite, but whichever you choose good luck to you this weekend. NR is for not ranked which counts as 20 for averaging purposes.
